We all have our own political beliefs, and i know that. And i know how important these beliefs are. These beliefs are an outward showing of our inward beliefs. The ability to know how you feel about issues is an important part of being a successful member of society, But, from time to time, humans fall in love. And when we do we don't always ask about politics.

What amount of influence should politics have on our relationships?

*agrees with Kenny* I actually asked my boyfriend this and he said the same thing.

I think that no matter how strongly held your beliefs are, as long as neither of you believe that the other is wrong (that is, that you should change their mind) you will be alright.

But if we disagree severely over the issue, is it possible to move past it? The love is still there but the opinions will never change. thank you for your input!

I think politics should play about the same role as religion in a relationship. While it isn't necessary that you believe exactly the same thing, a relationship with someone who's beliefs you do not respect, or who doesn't respect your beliefs, seems likely to turn into a harmful relationship. Also, if reproduction is a possibility, some agreement on how the offspring are to be indoctrinated is beneficial.

I think it really shouldn't affect relationships at all. We should all keep an open mind and be accepting that we all have different beliefs. There is always a line between discussion and argument which can be a fine line. In a relationship you should always discuss and not argue about it. If a person really loves you they will accept - maybe not understand, but accept that you think something different. Unless it is like killing babies.
