“I’m so confused. I don’t know what to think. But I just feel that I need some advice.

In the time I have known him, my boyfriend has always fell politically independent, or so I thought. Politics was never an issue between us at all. However, he just admitted to me that over the past year he’s grown more and more extreme in his views, to the point that he genuinely believes women have ruined the country (we are American) and that they should NOT be allowed to vote at all… He says he did not feel comfortable telling me about this sooner because he thought he would lose me.

I’m upset and I can’t tell if I’m wrong to be upset about this because I know that everyone is entitled to have their own views, but now I just feel as though he doesn’t even value my own input/views. He has assured me that he still thinks I should be allowed to vote but that women in general should not…

This is a person I have been with for almost 5 years. We’ve talked about marriage. I don’t know what to think. In all other aspects, he is the perfect, most amazing partner, and I can’t imagine my life without him in it. But this suddenly has me rethinking about a lot.

Am I wrong to be questioning our relationship over his new beliefs? As his girlfriend, am I supposed to be tolerant and respectful of his views even though I may (strongly) disagree? I can’t tell if I’m overreacting to this or not. The whole situation has made me feel terrible and I’m so confused.”
