People are divorcing and it seems ‘unreconcilable differences’ is the cause; but, maybe that phrase should be changed to ‘political differences’ with this new wave.
Wakefield Research found in a new data report that 1 in 10 couples, wedded and not, have ended their relationships fighting over TRUMP.
For millennials the percentage is high, of course. It stands at 22 percent.
According to the report, almost one in three Americans said political clashes over Trump “had a negative impact on their relationship.”
“Since Donald Trump’s election, political discourse in the U.S. has been more tense and divisive than ever,” Wakefield said.
It seems that loving and accepting relationships can’t stand the test of time when it comes to Trump politics.
“Passionately opposing points of views are not only driving wedges between strangers and even friends, but we are now seeing evidence that this dissent is having a detrimental impact on Americans’ marriages and relationships,” the report said.
According to the report, 24% Americans whom are with someone and 42% of millennials told the survey “since President Trump was elected, they and their partner have disagreed or argued about politics more than ever.”
Even online dating reports are showing that if people are politically incompatible either party is not interested.
Interestingly enough, the dating sites showed Democrats especially (you know, the party of tolerance) are unlikely to date a Trump supporter.
However, Republicans seemed to be more willing to give a Hillary supporters a try.
Wakefield confirmed those reports when they found that even Americans whom are unattached would consider divorce if their partner had political differences.
“Among Americans who did not vote for Trump and who are not in a relationship with a partner who voted for Trump, a third (33 percent) would consider divorce if they had a spouse who voted for Donald Trump. This number jumps to 43 percent among Millennials who did not vote for Trump or have a partner who voted for him,” said Wakefield.
