Although our reasons for voting may differ, as well as our views on what issues are the most important, we share the same political background.

If there is frustration about an issue, that level of frustration is often shared between the two of us as we realize the impact this election’s outcome will have on our family.

At the end of the day our core beliefs and values mirror one another, but this isn’t the case for all couples.

In an effort to help you and your significant other exit the voting booth the same way you entered it — together I’m sharing one tip via Shine and that can help those who are in a relationship with their political opposite as well as one tip my husband has taught me when it comes to our own disagreements.

I will be honest and say that sometimes I struggle implementing his tip but that is because despite it being a great one, I am a creature of habit and therefore have to make an extra effort to remember to use it.

Now is not the time to try and convince your significant other to change his or her political views and adopt your stance.

Chances are he or she is just as passionate about what he/she believes as you are. This might be an appropriate time to simply agree to disagree.

Your Facebook name, profile photo and other personal information you make public on Facebook (e.g., school, work, current city, age) will appear with your comment.

People often have this notion that what makes relationships thrive is always spending time together.

They might be understanding of our situation, but at some point, we need to include them back in our lives to retain their trust.
