Most likely not because we would not have the same values. But I have been attracted to a liberal now and again.

I did marry a polar opposite almost 16 years ago. His views have changed over time. He was a die hard Democrat. He is now registered to vote as an Independent.

There are only two things that are necessary in a romantic relationship.

#1 You both must trust each other to protect each other from others and to never use your partner's weaknesses against them.
#2 You both must respect each other intellectually and philosophically.

Without both of these elements it's only a matter of time before anger and resentment fracture the relationship.

I don't think I could respect someone who had polar opposite opinions from my own.

Maybe he does more with that tongue of his than shoot off at the mouth.

She probably loves him for the man he is not his political views. I think it is the manner in which we live our day to day lives that defines our characters, not our politics.
