In all three of these mixed marriages the Republican is the male. This fits national data as men are disproportionately Republican.
What is interesting to me in each of these cases is that when I begin to talk government, international issues or election material with the husbands, the wife says something nasty and walks away.
Is anyone else having this experience?
It coincides with my long-term dealings with human beings: the happy people are Republicans and conservatives, the unhappy people are Lefties.
Moreover, I find that Republicans and conservatives are curious and want to find out what other people are thinking about. When it comes to the entire domain of government and political thought, I find very few Democrats or Lefties enjoy a broad-based discussion. Lefties are happiest talking to people who mimic the same ideology and memes. The NYTimes, the New Yorker and Doonesbury.
I hate to be rude to my many Lefty readers (you are much appreciated) but I am actually curious about other peoples experience in this form of mixed marriage. Three is too small a sample. If I had a dozen examples I would be much happier.
