Politics & Religion vs Relationships

Quoting Maryclaire2000:

 

Hi SL ,

 

Religion and Politics in general is a volatile subject  ..As far as 

I could remember in my Sociology Class it is the No. 1 dont as 

well as in the Psychiatry Treatment because it could cause 

agressions but in real life we face it and could face it sometimes ..it is only how we deal with it ..

 

According to my experiences , I know a lot of couples who were

married of different Religions and Political views  but the subject of disagreements and separations are only about money , the children , the In Laws , jealousy and mostly their 

own Professions but I know too that Religion could cause clashes between 2 people because of the customs and traditions ..In here communication is badly needed as well as

in Politics before the couples ask the advice of their Lawyer and before the Court ..

 

In my 23 yrs .of married life ..we talked about everything including about Politics ( we belong to the same Religion ) but we have learned to respect and accept each other views and opinions ..without yelling and screaming at each other ..LOL 

 

SL , my last word ...It is known Politics between Politicians is worst 

and real dirty but Politics and Religion within relationships should be , must be, could be handle with care , respect , and accept the views

and opinions ..because we are raised from different aspects which involve the family , customs and traditions , backgrounds ( school ,

Church , neighbors, the govt . family) .." NO TWO MEN HAVE THE 

SAME OPINION and NO TWO MEN ARE THE SAME " ....

Love your mature and experienced response, to this complex topic.   I would have liked to be ' a fly on the wall ' during some of those political discussions though.  (smile)

 

Interestingly, the both of you belonged to the same religion, although having come from different corners of the world.  This of course, begs the question : Did you meet each other in Church or a similar setting ?.

 

Glad to know that, you had 23 years of marriage bliss, even though you've had different childhood environments.

It surely confirms the possibility of such.  Thank You.

In a romantic relationship, as you are both mature adults, (not age, emotionally) neither should be a problem. Religion may be if you have children.  Two different religions may confuse them, ern confuses me at times. 

 

As far as voting goes, if you are the opposite if each other, don't discuss it. Just go and vote for who you want or have faith in. I'm not politically minded. I just want a government who doesn't steal my hard earned money to line their pockets. I admit that I prefer men to women. Love Emmanuel and Donald but loathe my president. 

 

I'm not religious but enjoy church weddings and christenings. The odd church service or just being in a church can be a comfort. If my partner us religious, he can go on his own. However, should he be  Jehovah's witness, or belong to the Church of Scientology or a cult,  I will have to bid him farewell. 

 

My personal opinion is that sex and/or money causes bigger problems. There, you gave my 2 Euros worth of opinion!

Quoting rmac22:

Well marrying an arch conservative when you are a flaming liberal can be very contentious.  If you both are reasonably bright it does not have to be.  You just agree not to bother each other on that subject and live up to that.  At time of election you could just both take the day off and go mountain climbing or whatever else you both might enjoy.  Your votes would cancel each other on every issue anyhow. 

 

My mom and dad each believed the other canceled their vote.  They never discussed politics with each other.  Both went to the polls together and each voted their own mind.  Happily came home together and went on with their lives.   

 

Now two different religions can be a whole other problem.  If you both believe you belong to the one true faith and both faiths believe all others are doomed to hell, you naturally want to save those you love.  Persistently trying one to save the other does solve the problem -- you get a divorce.   

 

 

An agnostic and a true believer, I think, would have the same problem.

An excellent summation, citing parents whom you knew from birth.  I Thank You, for such a wonderful start to an important topic.

 

Yes, there are many couples who think it's best not to talk about politics, but focus instead on the euphoric hormone high, better known as ' chemistry '. 

Albeit a good beginning, we know that it has a tendency, to sometimes fade, with the passage of time.  Apparently, that is when the political differences,  begin to haunt a relationship.

 

Insofar as religious differences are concerned, there are instances where One insists on the Other to convert.

Perhaps those who have experienced such, may enlighten us about it.
