disparity of thought
Hi folks, I'm relatively new to this forum, and though I'm not married, I am in a committed (though relatively young) relationship. I've been grappling with figuring out the best way to discuss current events with my partner when he and I have different outlooks.
I'm interested in hearing how other couples handle differences of opinion on the matters that aren't spoken in polite company--or in the GardenWeb/ThatHomeSite forums--poligion & Relitics (if you know what I mean)!
Besides treating each other (and hence, their opinions) with respect, and not trying to change his/her mind about stongly held beliefs, how do you handle it? Are there issues you just don't talk about? Is it a source of contention? Do you have lots of discussions and explorations on these topics?
