    Arguments with Partner Over Politics

    Does it ever happen to you that you disagree politically with your partner and it turns into an argument? I hate very much when it happens. eyes::

    I had an argument with my partner yesterday because I disagree with some things about the organisation he is in and it was like this, we were conversating with a member of theirs who asked me why I don't decide to join once and for all and I said the reasons, I disagree with some of their theories and I am unsure if I can make a compromise yet, also I'm unsure if I can vote for the party they support because I'm in a dilemma which party to vote for yet, so it turned to a political discussion and my boyfriend took the side of this guy politically speaking. I was so mad I felt like my blood was boiling inside my veins and smoke was coming through my ears.

    How are you and your partners politically, do you agree on everything? Is it better for one of the partners to be apolitical?

    I generally keep politics, religion etc. out of my relationships. If it's a soar subject it's nothing to base a relationship on. I laugh at married couples who think about divorce because one is republican and the other democrat (now that's splitting hairs). Unless your partner is radical about a political ideology you feel is destructive to your own lifestyle I would say it's best kept out of becoming an issue. As long as they don't tell me what to think or say I am completely content dating liberal Christians. And you will often see that liberal gals often brag to their own kind that they are dating/married to a right winger.

    I sometimes have them with my Boyfriend. He doesn't like Radicalism too much. For Example, I got him to join this Site but he doesn't want to Post here because he finds too much Radicalism. :
    He also thinks we should move to Germany in the Future but I am not so certain yet. However, our Relationship isn't based on Politics and we respect our different Opinions on various Things. We just agree to disagree, basically.

    I don't discuss politics with this one. He is apolitical and too stressed/busy to discuss just about anything, actually :p

    In past relationships I had, and almost always my partners had similar views, so when we would have a fight it would be, e.g., a theoretical debate over some aspects of NS, and stuff like that :p But those days are long over, thank goodness, as it didn't do me any good to have partners with strong political views. It somehow always seemed to get me into trouble.

    Politics is an important part of relationships for me, because politics is an important part of my life and I value it. I couldn't have a partner who wasn't socialist. But even with this one who is socialist there are disagreements, I guess it's about how the ideology is interpreted, I see that with NS as well, they disagree about things between themselves like whether it's right or left wing, whether it's capitalist or socialist economically speaking, and more. For my boyfriend politics is important too and if I switched my ideology he wouldn't want me anymore, some probably think this is cruel but I think he has that right. I guess we need to learn to "agree to disagree" after all. If I joined that organisation it would be easier but I can't right now because of the doubts.

    Between you and your boyfriend, you are the one who sticks closer to the true principles of German socialism. He joined that organization of TRAITORS and supports them. Honecker would be rolling in his grave if he knew what these idiots are doing. Nonetheless he should have disagreed with you in private. Arguing against your pair in public is disrespectful towards a lady.

    My partner is of the large majority in this country which doesn't care about politics. To ask her if she supports a party or has a stance usually invokes the response of "I'm not into politics. I couldn't care less"

    I should remind her of that when she next opens the council tax bill or finds the regulations for her career not to her liking

    Politics and relationships, in my opinion, never seem to match up.
    "The only way to get smarter is to play a smarter opponent."

    The same right holds for you, so don't compromise your ideology or join a group you're not 100% comfortable with, because he expects you to. Make sure you don't do anything out of pressure, that you will regret later on.
    I hope he can respect your own views and will and not let this influence your relationship...

    Yes it's true I would not want a relationship if he turned to another ideology than socialism either so we are on the same page there. I told him the decision is mine and he says that's alright. I disagree with Ossi though I wouldn't call them traitors but they are wrong about some issues and I hope I can make them realise that.
