Lol. Actually yes, pretty much. He’s a little more conservative than I am, though.

For the most part. He is much more vocally liberal than I am, but we pretty much agree on all moral and most political issues.

yes, and we’re both really politically minded, so i don’t really know that we could make it work with someone who didn’t have the same set of beliefs. we have friends with very different political views, and i just find it really hard (not impossible, just hard) to censor certain topics out of the conversation to avoid arguing (i’m pretty non-confrontational in general). if i was less passionate about politics i could see it working, but i’m not.

Political yes, but moral no.  If we disagreed on social issues I don’t think we could be together.  But political we are nearly diametrically opposed and it’s pretty frustrating.  I somehow always end up with the socially liberal, fiscally conservative guys.  But money always wins so they vote Republican.

More or less, yes. 

I’m pretty bull-headed.

Sorta. Luckily (or unluckily), Fiance is not religion or into politics. He was raised in a Jehovah’s Witness household, so they never put any emphasis on politics or voting or anything like that. In fact, it’s a big no-no.

He left the religion, I was raised Catholic (non-practicing now, mostly Agnostic) but I’m pretty liberal.  He has similar morals to me..it’s been a little bit of a wakeup call for the both of us because he was pretty brainwashed. Not anything against that religion, but, just the particular values and opinions his parents (FFIL) held and still hold. For instance, he was a little homophobic and made black jokes (when we first started dating) but has become so much better. He doesn’t make those jokes or put anyone down anymore. It was pretty personal to me, because I have both homosexual and black family members.

Future Father-In-Law, on the other hand…we butt heads. Often.

my SO’s family and I are very different, I’m super-liberal and they’re conservative– but we have so much fun! we love making political jokes and laughing about it to one another.  SO is more on the moderate side of things, but I think we both are still holding out to “convert” the other hahaha

Pretty much.  I’m more vocally liberal, but he just doesn’t like to voice his opinions much.  For me, because I am heavily involved in policy/politics, and because well I uh, have strong opinions, if he were on the opposite spectrum it would be a calamitous relationship.  Not that I have a problem with any beliefs (half of my family is VERY vocally conservative, and it makes for great heated and friendly debates), but it’s important to me that the person who I’m spending my life with have the same beliefs.

Yes.  We are both very liberal politically, (although he is more moderate on fiscal issues) and both have the same morals/values.  When I dated guys who were not on the same page politically and morally, it never worked out.
