Are You And DH Both Dem OR Rep?

Posted by   + Show Post

 Do you and your dh both have the same view as far as republican,democrat,or independent?My dh and I arent.I am a moderate democrat and he is independent but leans more towards conservatism.Despite our differences ...we spar...but respect one anothers view.In the end we decide together who we want as president...yet at the end of the day we arent in the voters booth

Alot of people cant see how with different views we have managed to stay married over 13 years.We both are very passionate,respectful,and adore one another over all.

We are both conservatives also, and I wouldn't marry a democrat either. I think that man and wife should share the same morals and family values. I think there would be too much tension otherwise. I am more socially liberal than my husband though.

Quoting numbr1wmn:

We are both Republicans. Honestly, I couldn't marry a democrat.

 I am a conservative independent, my husband was a republican.  He's not even registered to vote anymore.  I think he just gave up on the entire process, and sees both sides as corrupt.  I on the other hand have been very active and talk politics and economics all day long.  He listens and nods his head.  We both agree the constitution must be upheld.  At the end of the day he leaves the politics up to me.  It works for us.

We were both democrats for a long time until we made 55,000.00 and found out with 3 kids that was some how rich. :) lol PLLLLLLLLLLLLEASE! Then we both changed over to Libertarian but lean more right seeing how we're taxed to death the more we make. 

Socially we're free rights or state rights. I don't care what people do with their lives as long as they aren't making me do what THEY think is right.

Mine just switched to Indie last month.

How nice to find this topic amongst all the other schtuff!

We're both Independents. Although, my husband wasn't until this year. He was a card carrying Republican until they lost their minds and fell off the the deep end of the far right.

We talk politics when it's interesting (like this year) and he often plays the devil advocate for my more emotional outlooks. This year is the first time we aren't voting for the same people. As an Independent, I've voted for Dems and Reps in the past. This year that isn't going to happen and probably won't happen again. I'm voting Johnson this year. I won't say who my hubs is voting for as that is his own decision to make.

Separation of church and state is for the protection of BOTH church and state.
Leading with hate and intolerance only leads to MORE hate and intolerance.

Nope, neither one of us really identify with a party, we both vote by policy rather than party lines, but I tend to be more liberal where he is more conservative. It hasn't affected our marriage at all, we'll celebrate 21 years next month.
