If you are from the Midwest, you know the “House Divided” in the Fall in the State of Michigan. The first month I moved to Massachusetts, I was driving on the street and saw a house with two flags hanging out, a green MSU and a blue UM. I bursted into a big laugh in my car.
The “house divided” is another common issue in the last week after the election. Quiet a few couples coming into my office angry at each other because of the election results.
“I don’t understand how can he/she vote for this person!”
“How can he/she accuse me of this!!!!”
There are quite a few articles out there to talk about this issue. You can see the link below for the two articles for further readings and the authors’ full perspective. I want to add in more ideas here that you are not only unlock this “divided” situation but also turning this crisis into an opportunity to strengthen your relationship.
