He's Republican, She's Democrat: 23 Ways to Make Love and Politics Work

"To avoid arguments, we don't discuss politics." --t.e.r.r.i

"My husband and I have lively discussions, but no anger. I think he has become a little more liberal in his thinking since we have been together, and I have become slightly conservative on some issues." --ellenleora

"My husband and I agree about 90% of the time, but my parents were on opposite ends of the political spectrum leading to very lively discussions. --libraone

"My husband and I seem to agree on issues, and I'm glad about that. We usually vote Democrat, together. Or we get the same "feeling" when we hear a politician speak. The party issues are a real factor with us, too. --by cl-sweetpea1946

"We usually agree on big issues, but have been known to "cancel out each other's votes" at the polls. We enjoy having political discussions, and even tease each other as we discuss things. It's never a nasty debate." --tswalnut

"We hardly ever agree unless we're discussing military issues which we both have a mutual interest in. We handle the disagreements by respecting each other's opinions -- even when we are shouting those opinions at each other, LOL" --jlwhitmore

"Politics is one area that my husband and I totally agree on. It's really great because we are both very interested in the issues. We can get pretty hot about some of them, but we are almost always in agreement. I actually can't remember disagreeing politically in our entire 30 years together. -- cl-taurus29

"I love cerebral discussions, especially about politics. My husband and I have opposing views on some issues. He is what I would call a right wing Independent (conservative) and I'm a liberal Republican. We love to discourse about politicians, issues and hot topics of the day. Most of the time, neither one of us is swayed by the other's point of view, and I don't think we want to, but the stimulating discussions are energizing. It shows that although personality wise darling husband and I are opposites, at the cerebral level we are on the same plane. I find this very sexy actually, the mental stimulation."
