  • poll: Do you have the same political views as your SO?

    Yes, our views pretty much align

    We at least agree on the "big" things

    No, we're pretty opposite (and it is sometimes a problem)

    No, we're pretty opposite (and that's okay with us)

    We agree on some things, disagree on others

    We just don't talk about it

    For the most part, we agree. We differ here and there but that is to be expected.

    Yes, more or less. To me, our political views are matters of basic human decency. I’m not sure I could love someone who disagrees on things like gay rights, environmental protection, tax equality, etc.

    @CzechBride14:  Yeah, basically the same. I’m sure we disagree about something but it hasn’t come up yet.

    @CzechBride14:  Definitely. I could never marry someone who didn’t have the same politics as me. Your politics are such a reflection of who you are as a person and I’m sorry but I don’t believe that someone who is against right for women, gay people, poor people, animals, and the enviroment is a good person at all. FH and I disagree on some small things but like a pp said, that’s normal and to be expected.

    We do. We are both very liberal, I think there’s only one or two minor issues we disagree on (legalization of certain drugs being one).

    In THEORY we both agree, but in reality, the very, very far right  is quite cose to the very, very far left…

    I think we would both be considered to have the same political affiliation, but SO has some wonky beliefs that really come out of nowhere sometimes LOL.

    We have very similar beliefs. I only had one real hot-button political ‘requirement’ and that was that anyone I was in an LTR with had to support marriage equality. My brother’s Fiance is my second brother, and I wasn’t going to put up with someone who was going to be a jerk about it. My FI’s only real ‘requirement’ was that he needed a girl who didn’t mind guns. So we match up pretty well.

    @CzechBride14:  We agree on some things but we vote for different parties. I have absolutely no idea why he votes for the party he does but I’m not going to try and change his mind!

    I don’t think I could marry someone who didn’t share my beliefs on some issues (gay rights, abortion rights, women’s rights).

    I don’t see how we could have the same views, as my views can change from one year to another.  The ‘big’ things also change, as it’s a matter of opinion.  Averaging things out, we do tend to agree.

    We agree. I couldn’t be with someone who strongly disagreed with my political views; they’re a large part of who I am.
