In Dating, Are Politics More Important Than Looks?

"We love Arnold!" said Jenna and Barbara Bush at the 2008 Republican National Convention. "Thanks to him, if one of us ever decides to marry a Democrat, nobody can complain." Of course, since then, Jenna Bush has gotten a Republican. (And as you've probably heard, Arnold & Maria recently called it quits.) As much as the Bush twins may have wanted to rebel against their family, it's very rare for someone to date someone of opposing political beliefs.

Do Politics Matter To Your Relationship?

I would and have dated someone of opposite politics and in fact, dear reader, I married him. (10 points to the person who names that literary reference.)

Because, we literally cannot watch a political debate together without glaring at each other from opposite ends of the couch and then someone sneaking out to eat all the Cheetos, just to make the other person upset. Those were my Cheetos!

These are the pillars of a relationship. Not all that values and morals crap.
