Thank God I married a conservative....

It was a crucial question prior to getting married. We are a house-united.

Sounds like someone has been into the Rum tonight.

Nah, only watched the news...and looking forward to 2012.

But as another poster commented, it IS good in a marriage, I think, when both spouses are like-minded. My wife has the same values as me. She is not a citizen of the USA, but she knows more about the politics and political leaders and the values of this country than just about any American I know. I always am so impressed of what all she knows and the people she knows so much about.

In the Philippines, even before meeting me, she used to watch FOX news every day. She would really be a good candidate for Congress one day. She cant vote yet, but my vote will be for the same person she would vote for if she could vote. She actually wants to help campaign for the person her and I would like to see president, if that is possible.

So yes, it IS nice to have shared values in a marriage. And I really DID get clarification on that from her wayyy before we married. To me it was an important issue, where she stands on so many things such as her view of abortion, the family, the church, gay marriage and the impact on the nuclear family, national defense, spiritual beliefs and much, much more. I had lots of time to get to know her before she ever got here and before we had the chance to marry, and I wanted to know every little and big thing that could be a potential red flag or indication we we would have a difficult time as a couple or not. In learning her values and discovering we had shared values, it DID help in giving me a feeling of reassurance that the choices we were making to be together for life were going to be ok. And it DID help me to know her much better, to know what was important to her, what mattered in her heart in life about so many things... And the values of her heart made me fall all the MORE in love with her.

While I agree that is important that both spouses share core values, I don't think that equates to meaning that you both vote for the same politicians, belong to the same political party, or agree on every piece of legislation. That would be boring.

The Philippines is predominantly Roman Catholic and the Church has a long history of standing up for the poor. In fact, they believe the message of the Gospel is essentially to do for the least of your brothers. So I'm not sure how well that translates into the modern American Conservative, political ideology. You'll never hear a Filipino candidate openly claim that poor people are lazy or that they should pull themselves up by their own bootstraps. In fact, all recent presidential candidates in the Philippines have campaigned on the plight of the poor. Most of it appears to be lip service, but nonetheless, that is quite different from the political rhetoric you hear from modern Conservative American politicians.

Just because we share the same values and prefer the same person for president, etc. does not make OUR life boring, far from it. We simply have the same values. :) And it is nice in OUR relationship at least to share these same values. We differ in enough other ways than that. :)

And as far as I know, conservative values are not in o[[osition to the poor. As a matter of fact, conservative values seek to help the poor, not necessarily by free handouts around every corner enabling the poor to tay poor.

I am a conservative, and our family income is under $20,000 a year. So in the United States of America does that make me rich? No. Do we give to help the poor even though we are poor ourselves? yes. You fail to comprehend conservative values. I am just thankful that my wife and I share the same values as I said, and not concerned about you and I sharing the same values. :)

Ask most Filipinos what the solution to the problem with dire poverty in the Philippines and you might be surprised what they would say. The Catholic Church doesn't make quips about whether charity is instituted (welfare) or not. In fact, the Church sees it as a moral duty and public one. They look it as an obligation rather than the American view of it being simply voluntary. While there are wide range of political views in the Philippines, they aren't as polarized between "conservative" and "liberal" the way it is here.

We're not Catholic. :)

But I agree, in part, with you.

I am just thankful for my conservative Christian wife and her values, and looking forward to 2012.

"she used to watch FOX news every day."

Sorry to hear that, she might want to try BBC for unbiased news

2012 will be nice, the GOP is well on their way to getting Obama re-elected ;)
