People married into different political parties all the time back in the day. How many husbands voted Republican and how many wives voted Democrat for how many years? It was never really an issue for people until recently. Sure, there were some, but nothing like today. I don't quite understand it. I don't have a clue what my friend's political leanings are, I don't care, I've had the same group of friends for 20+ years That's not going to change because I find out who they voted for.
