Mom Influencing Political Views
Q: My husband and I have always been on the same page politically. Lately, heís been staying with his family more due to his fatherís illness. His family has completely different political views than we do, and the more he stays with them, the more his views seem to be changing. I fear my mother-in-law is bringing up politics a lot and influencing him. He is very impressionable around his mother, and Iím finding it very difficult to see my husband change so much in such a short time. What should I do? - Janice, 29

Dr. Anna: Emotions about politics are at an all time high lately. However, your husband is also in an emotional situation. A parentís illness can be a very difficult and vulnerable time for adult children. Try spending some time with him and showing your support for him while his father is ill. You could also mention some of the changes youíve noticed, but you might give it some more time. Most likely, your husbandís views will settle back to normal when his circumstances calm down again.
