Morning fellow ATS members & the non member lurking crowd. This election cycle has brought all new meaning to the word "divided". I mean damn folks can we find yet another way to separate ourselves? My wife is a democrat, I am registered "independent". My wife is gonna vote the left ticket regardless of WHO is on it. ( it could be Darth Maul or Vader ) as long as they lean left. Me, not so much. I vote for who I feel is best suited to do the job. Regardless of their affiliation.

In this past election cycle it's obvious she voted left.....I did not. I was gonna vote Jill Stein then found she was not on the ballot in my state. So I voted Trump. Should have keep that lil tid bit of knowledge to myself. My house is now, DIVIDED.

My wife more than once in our time together has told me her distain for Madonna. But now it seems as is if Madonna is a damn God. Never mind that she created an image of a less than virtuous woman, and made mad money carrying this persona in the present time. Alas, but know they have common ground...the hatred of Trump. AS far as I know my wife has never meet Mr.Trump nor has she ever read any of his books or the many articles on the web about him...good or bad. It's just HATE.....without explanation.

I just don't understand it. We have now had words more in three months than in the past 12 years. I kid not about that fact. She has taken the side of CNN, Meryl, Madonna, Shia, Etc Etc Etc,. With every chance she gets, she tells me just how Trump cares only about Trump & how he's gonna do away with this & do away with that. Like he's Satan himself. I on the other hand take the high ground....sort of. I don't need to bitch, whine & complain. I just need to wait. Wait & see if the man does what he said he would do. I certainly want hold my breath that he does, none of the past Presidents have, so he would just be the status quo in that.

But this just pure hatred of a man is just astounding, why does she hate him? Is it that he don't talk like a life long sucker of the teat of government?
Is it that he was & is successful ? Or that he's a loud show off who is now The Loud Show Off POTUS. I think it's that he's not the normal politician & some just would rather go bat shat crazy than except that fact. So, with this I ask....Am I the only one living in a house divided ?

I absolutely mean no disrespect, but the only reason your home is divided, is because you married the wrong woman, or.....she married the wrong man.

Settling for someone is one of the most saddest things on earth.

I wish both of you luck....if you believe in that kinda stuff.

12 years is a long time. You should both have a formal sit down and tell her she is worth more than politics. Both of you should agree to no more politics. Its truly not that important. Nothing either of you think can be done about it. Leave it out of your relationship and remember back to this time last year, before all the madness.

Mate,it will all blow over just be patient and bite your tongue

I can understand people voting trump as he was going to change the system and put America 1st

I can also understand people not liking or trusting him for his past actions and words

Our relationship is one of love & trust. But politics is something she's always been into...me not so much. Not till I married her. I actually told her" you created this in me" by getting me involved in the political process. a reply to: VinylTyrant

No, surprisingly, my house is No longer divided. As shocking as that is to me.
For the past 8 years, my mother has railed against me, being a hard core Obama fan.
Well, then she got.... um, burned, by the healthcare subsidy.

Now she tells me she actually voted for Trump. I was floored.

So yeah, our house has managed to bridge the divide this election.
Now I can go on family vacations again.

Hang in there. soon we will have reeducation camps like colleges are for you. Then you too can become a mindless liberal.

Joking

Remember the Woman's always right even when they are wrong. Make her think she is the wise one and u made a dumb mistake.

hahahahahahaha

Just remember, if you poke a bear with a stick, the bear might poke back.

I have won more arguments by keeping my mouth shut than by actually using any debate style.

Does your wife know that you invalidate her by saying her choices are less cerebral than your own?
Hers are emotional or at least not thought out while yours are carefully calculated and focused?

And comments about a virtuous woman?

What is a virtuous woman as opposed to a nonvirtuious woman and does that adjective apply to men as well ?
If you have cubbies for women to fit in well...

A lot of us have the same problem, my wife is a liberal and I am a "don't give a flying f**" kinda guy. She bashes Trump constantly, me I patiently wait for her to stfu. If I open my yap to explain reality, I get verbally assaulted, insulted and accused of all manner of stupid crap. You can't talk rationally to irrational people, they are driven by emotions and once triggered there is no getting past the wall of stupidity. As an example, I woke up the other morning to a day of arguing because she had a dream that some woman was giving me head in the shower, that's how triggered these liberal twits are, they can't tell fantasy from reality.

So I have a very simple rule, nobody can talk about politics in my house. If and when they do, they better have their bags packed or travel light, because they're going out the door.

Cheers - Dave
