“Don’t talk about religion, politics or money” so goes the old saying.It’s unclear if that advice is meant for casual acquaintances, people who are in the early stages of dating or well, anyone, EVER. I was born in the heart of a liberal utopia, the good old San Francisco Bay Area, raised by two parents who bleed blue.
Some choose not to discuss sensitive issues such as politics for the sake of avoiding the potential fallout, thus possibly preserving the relationship.
Outside of a minority of people who are deeply rooted in the political process, most people spend a relatively small amount of time either cheering for the person they selected or against the person they didn’t. Dating someone with different political beliefs work, and for some, it can even work out quite well.
Fair warning: Couples who are staunch in opposite political thought often have quite a bit to duke it out over.
Some couples embrace political differences, some don’t care, and others still consider having similar views non-negotiable.
Given that we each have our own influences, history of experiences, psychological makeup, and subjective lens through which we view the world, some differences are bound to exist or arise.
