210: I Love You, But I Hate Your Politics

It can feel a bit overwhelming to discuss politics with a significant other, friends or family in today’s politically charged world. Unfortunately, with the 2020 presidential election looming, the political divide in media and culture will likely be more apparent than ever. Listen to today’s show to learn how to constructively talk politics and love someone with different political beliefs.

In this episode, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Hear the real life story of a successful long term marriage between two individuals on the opposite ends of the political spectrum
  • Communication tools for talking about politics with your partner, friends and family
  • Why it’s OK to disagree with your partner politically
  • Deciding if political differences are too hard to overcome in a relationship
  • And much more!
