In the book “Dollars And Sex,” Dr. Marina Adshade, who’s an economist, says,
“The characteristic that married individuals have most in common with their partners is their political beliefs.”
Interestingly, she says, individuals tend to not seek out partners with the same political affiliation as them. Instead, having shared political beliefs with your spouse just happens to be a natural byproduct of married individuals.
I take this to mean that having a shared political affiliation with your spouse, although it doesn’t rank high on people’s list of needs in a spouse, is extremely important for marriage and happiness.
This means that if you’re an argumentative, an opinionated, or not an open minded individual, then this is extremely important for you to remember when it comes to finding someone you can get along with.
