Too vocal about politics?
I’ve been dating my boyfriend for nine months. Politics seem to be our biggest issue. He’s a republican and I’m a democrat. I recently attended the Women’s March with some friends and he’s livid. My sign supported Planned Parenthood, and since he’s a staunch pro-life person, he feels I want to kill babies. He also thinks I’m too vocal about my beliefs.
This guy means the world to me and I love him to bits. It sounds to me like he wants to break up, but I’m not sure, and I don’t want to. What should I do?
