Non-Negotiable

It’s always interesting to see the things that people stand for – or won’t stand for.

This Wall Street Journal article describes the trend among well-to-do singles (though the article indicates that the trend isn’t exclusive to the affluent).  They won’t date across political lines.
I wonder if these folks would be as adamant that they won’t date someone outside of their religion?  It’s amazing how often I hear young people assert that what someone believes about the nature of the universe and their place in it isn’t a major consideration in terms of dating, courtship, and marriage.  Yet at least for some, sub-genres of political ideology are grounds for exclusion.  Interesting.
I guess I’m somewhat encouraged in that at least it’s a starting point.  Something where people are willing to say that truth is not merely subjective and where differences of belief need to be taken very, very seriously.
