    My ex voted like extreme left wing and me extreme right wing:p
    We could have talks for hours about politics,religion and history and without getting fights never had any fight with her about politics.

    Still i tried to get her away from left wing parties but she didnt want to, and thats what i love women that decide themself and dont get influenced by others.
    If christ is the answer then what is the question?

    I think it's constructive to discuss politics but obviously there will be disagreements. It's better to think of politics separately from the relation.

    I wouldn't expect any "partner" that I had to agree with me if he didn't really; I'd rather him disagree with me and make the arguments than to have him lie to me about what he believes. If there's one thing I hate more than anything, it is being lied to.

    The point is I think, to acknowledge political differences, but realise that it's not really a difference in compatibility, because there would be no reason that one and one's "partner" is together if they disliked each other.

    I'm not in a relationship, but my previous partner and I were political opposites and it was one of the reasons for our split.

    Over two yeas ago, I had considered schooling and living in Europe. I was a racial preservationist, held mostly conservative values, and I didn't view America in the light I do today. We got along because of those things. My boyfriend was a European immigrant living in Germany. So, I visited a number of times and acquired a plethora of knowledge and experiences that only strengthened my appreciation for my own country's culture, history and politics. Somewhere along the line, he started leaning towards the left. He liked socialism, I liked capitalism. He favored the EU, I didn't. He was more open to immigration, I wasn't. The list goes on. The problem was we both enjoyed politics so we discussed them a lot, and therefore, we argued endlessly.

    It hit me hard realizing how different Europeans and Americans can be, and it hit him hard too. We sadly understood that the political differences we had were very much a reflection of our cultures, upbringing and moral values. That jeopardized our ideas for family. I learned the hard way the importance of homogamy in relationships, and so political and cultural similarities are some things I would hope to have in marriage.

    Also, I think being apolitical is unwise. My best friend couldn't care less about what is going on in her own nation and it makes me want to bash her over the head with a frying pan. If my partner didn't care, I think I'd go crazy.

    Well I think that my boyfriend and I roughly agree on politics, although he is much more passionate about it than I am. We also hove different oppinions on things like welfare which seem to stem from different life experiances. So a political discussion can be fun and no we've never had an argument over it, religion however, well on paper it should be ok but here we both care so mole hills become mountains.

    Me and my ex had arguments over it all the time, she is a socialist, while I am more a nationalist or pan-germanic. She got so mad at me sometimes, even though I was serious and had good arguments. I tried to explain her how immigration from non-western people could be a problem, and she told me she had realised also that immigration wasnt all that good, but still she voted for the socialist parties that wanted to open the gates even more.

    this thread made me smile because i've realised that even though my boyfriend and i have a lot of political discussions, i doubt either one of us has any idea where the other person stands. half the time by the end of the discussion we reverse sides i suspect we disagree, but have enough respect for him that i would not try to change his mind. i don't see being a in a relationship as an ongoing project to try and turn my partner into a clone of myself, thus see no point.

    i think there are many lifestyle choices that are a lot more important that politics. i would rather be with someone who is socially and environmentally responsible but on the opposite side of the political spectrum than someone who has political beliefs identical to mine but drives an suv to work every day.

    it's just politics...not unimportant, but not something i'd base my life around either...

    It's important to be politically compatible with your pair in my opinion. I can't imagine myself marrying a multiculturalist for example. You can't really keep politics out of your life because your political views affect life. A multiculturalist would want your children to go to "diverse" schools and have "diverse" friends or even partners. I couldn't accept that.

    I had a former sort-of-girlfriend who broke off all contact with me because I wouldnt turn to the apolitical conformist she wanted me to be, like herself. Dumbnut. No regrets there.

    And she tried (and failed, I may add) to throw down my Norwegian flag (Which I got on my wall on my room).
