Are Political Differences Driving Couples to Divorce?
The increasingly divided political discourse in the U.S. was the impetus behind a survey conducted to determine how, if at all, political differences have impacted Americans’ romantic relationships since 2016.
Wakefield Research’s study, entitled “The Trump Effect on Relationships,” surveyed 1,000 “nationally representative U.S. adults,” and their collected data revealed that:
- 11% of Americans – and 22% of Millennials – have ended relationships over political strife
- 22% of Americans – and 35% of Millennials – know someone “whose marriage or relationship has been negatively impacted specifically due to President Trump’s election”.
