41chevy Posted February 13, 2017 Share Posted February 13, 2017 Reuters Feb 10, 2017 Woman Ends 22-Year Marriage Because Her Husband Voted For Trump The 2016 election saw the ending of some friendships, family gatherings growing tenser, and now marriages are on the chopping block. No, seriously—some people are calling it quits because their spouse voted for President Donald Trump, like this retired California prison guard who decided to end her 22-year marriage because her husband, a conservative Republican, voted for Trump. For Gayle McCormick, it is particularly wrenching: she has separated from her husband of 22 years.The retired California prison guard, a self-described "Democrat leaning toward socialist," was stunned when her husband casually mentioned during a lunch with friends last year that he planned to vote for Trump – a revelation she described as a "deal breaker." "It totally undid me that he could vote for Trump," said McCormick, 73, who had not thought of leaving the conservative Republican before but felt "betrayed" by his support for Trump."I felt like I had been fooling myself," she said. "It opened up areas between us I had not faced before. I realized how far I had gone in my life to accept things I would have never accepted when I was younger." The Reuters/Ipsos poll of 6,426 people, taken from Dec. 27 to Jan. 18, shows the number of respondents who argued with family and friends over politics jumped 6 percentage points from a pre-election poll at the height of the campaign in October, up to 39 percent from 33 percent. Get a grip. My parents voted differently for decades and they never went to the lawyers. It’s not like he was caught with cocaine, hookers and was wearing a buttless clown suit. Then, I could see you facing those uncharted areas mentioned before. Last Thanksgiving, The New York Times reported how families cancelling dinner plans over the election, with some planning special events, like weddings, in ways where their Trump-supporting relatives wouldn’t be able to attend. Stupid!! Now Democrats are exhibiting this tantrum as well, delaying cabinet nominees votes over Trumps election. They think Conservatives and Republicans are the spawns of Satan. Yippeeeee!
