Political Views and Marriage

Posted on in Divorce

It has not been long since there was an election going on, and there was no way to avoid politics. Politics are an issue that often leads to heated conversations, which is why many people try to avoid talking about politics. How do you manage this with a spouse, though? There was a post on a Huffington Post Divorce blog that touched on this exact topic.

The blog said that a Match.com poll found that 57 percent would marry a person whose political views are considerably different from their own. Even though the majority of these would marry person with different political views, there is no way to know how these views will affect the relationship in years to come or how much friction there will be when the next election is at hand.

For weeks, people were fighting over who should be the next president, and it is not a surprise that democrats and republicans do not really see eye to eye when this question is raised. If things between you and your spouse get heated during the election, how will things go when one of you has to live with a president they did not want, knowing the other spouse voted for that person?

Strong political views can lead to numerous disputes, and four years is a long time to be bickering, so changes are that every now and then one of these arguments might lead to 'an irreconcilable difference' for some couple.
