you and your husband-political views

Posted by   + Show Post
Do you and your husband share the same political views? Are you polar opposites?

My husband is ultra conservative. I am libertarian. Things get interesting in our house.

We're both more or less libertarian.  He tends to be more socially and fiscally conservative than me but when we did the "I side with" poll before the elections last fall, we both identified most strongly with moderate candidates and Libertarian.

My ex had PTSD.  I feel for you both.  It's sometimes hard to cope with and often does lead to violence.  I'm glad your hubs doesn't turn it on you.  I'm sending good thoughts to both of you.

Quoting sherry132:

I'm a lot less "violent" thinking. I don't mean he is violent or who do anything, but he gets pretty worked up and sometimes destroys things in his anger. (Before you judge, know he has PTSD severe, and a Moderate Traumatic Brain injury. He is in treatment and never gets violent towards people, just things.)

I'm more of "meh, it is what it is." Not really overly interested in most of it.

 We share very similar views but we are also slightly different which keeps the fire burning!

He is getting more and more conservative.

My husband is the kind of person who hears what other people say or talk about and adheres to it. He believes other people's opinions to be factual. It's kind of sad. He's a work on progress.

My husband & I are exactly the same as you described.  We have had to stop conversations before because they get so heated. It's nice, though, to be able to have a different view point to think about.
