Brides-To-Be Share Why They’re OK With Marrying A Trump Supporter

The election may be over and done with, but there are still some tiffs and feuds caused by the election floating around in relationships that won’t be cured overnight.

So what happens if the love of your life, AKA the person you’ve already said a big ol’ “yes” to, is still rallying behind the candidate you’re constantly rolling your eyes at?

Just take note from these six brides-to-be who share why, and how, they are somehow A-OK with marrying a Trump supporter.

1. He knows he’s wrong.

It’s irrelevant after the election because I know my fiancé knows he is wrong for voting for Trump. That’s why I’m OK with getting married to him. He won’t admit he is wrong, but I know he thinks that because who in their right mind would still support Trump these days?

— Abby D., 27


2. Every relationship needs conflict in order to grow.

The only thing my fiancé and I fight about is Trump. He voted for Trump. I did not. The fighting and constant political debate keeps our relationship hot. Every relationship needs some drama, and this is ours. And I kind of like it.

3. She plans to change his mind.

It doesn’t bother me that the love of my life voted for Trump because I plan to change his mind about his stance on politics and who he votes for in the future.

I plan to get married, and then, make him vote Democrat in the next election. Then I will feel like I won.

— Elsie P., 29


4. Politics don’t matter.

Sure, we disagree about our political stance and who we wish won as president, but if you are about to marry someone who you love deeply and dearly, politics don’t matter.

People are allowed to have their own opinion and vote for whomever they want. Who am I to change that?

5. He’s the one who looks like a fool.

When people find out my husband-to-be voted for Trump, they think he is a fool. It makes me look like the smarter one in the relationship – which I am, duh.

6. Their kids will laugh at him one day.

I’m excited to have kids with my man, and then, one day, tell the kids about daddy’s big mistake in voting for Trump. They will laugh at him, and so will I.

— Cheryl W., 29
