Couples Court: Should Our Plaintiff Concede In This Election-Related Dilemma?

Talk about a political football!

We’re not sure we want to touch this one with a 10-foot pole, but we’re guessing this week’s Couples Court plaintiff isn’t the only one caught in a dilemma like this …

Dear Rik & Michele:

My husband and I have been married for nine years, and this might be the angriest I’ve been with him yet — it’s over the presidential election. He’s for Donald Trump, I’m for Hillary Clinton.

That’s not the real problem, though. We’ve been on opposite sides in political debates before, and we’ve always worked through it. But this time is different.

He’s planning to watch the returns on Election Night with some of our friends (all Trump backers) and insists that I go with him. I don’t want to, though. If his candidate wins, I’ll be dismayed — and if mine wins, he’ll be furious. And I just don’t want to risk having those kinds of emotions on display in public.

Should I go along to keep him happy, or am I wrong to draw a line in the sand?

Yikes. If this election’s any indication, we’re sure there are some split opinions here. What do you think, jurors? How should Judge Michele Mathews rule?
