Different political views

Have been wondering, do you think different political views can affect a relationship? Because as a couple, you will talk about everything and that includes political views as well. But if you know that both of you have different political views, would you still get into the relationship?

A different political view or religious view should not be the end of the world or a reason not to have a (close) relationship. It all depends on how you behave. To my experience politics and religion are the subjects you better don't talk about with other people. Both subjects are great for starting a fight and killing relationships (or the good atmosphere) of any kind. If it comes to these subjects most people are not wiling to listen, they only want to promote their own ideas without listening to anyone else. Fact is.. even if someone else is not sharing the same opinion as you are, this should not mean that person is wrong, blind, an idiot. We all have our own experiences and view on life and it's good we are not all the same.

Ps my husband and I have a different view on life, politics, religion, different cultures, different looks, to us it's not a problem, no issue and it will never be. Why not? There are way worser things to "fight" about. Life is too short.

Hmm, whatever you said is correct too. Just that my experiences in relationship is different. My ex and I used to quarrel over almost everything because we have different views and thinking. Maybe because we were not mature enough to know how to compromise with each other.

As a couple, you will talk about everything, for example, the latest news, etc etc. Politic is just one of those topics. I feel that politic will pose a big problem in the future for the relationship.

You must bear in mind that politics is a dirty game. it can tear apart relationships, create enemies among friends. At the end of the day nobody achieve anything except those top politicians who managed to influence the people towards his political ambitions. It is best to leave politics to thr politicians and stand neutral to avoid unnecesssry conflicts with your partner.

But different politic views will also refer to the way we think, right? That's why you will support different politic groups.

I think if we differ in a relationship is certainly very reasonable, as long as it does not interfere and destroy relationships, why not to defend it as a good way of talking as well all be resolved. It tasted in my relations, my views and my boyfriend is different but it's all we think of as the colors in this connection.
