I was talking to my partner who I have been dating for a short time and I just found out he is against gay marriage. I am for gay marriage. I am opened minded enough to understand that everyone has a right to their own opinions and beliefs so I don't think any less of him. I'm trying to figure out why exactly he is against it out of curiosity, and in all honesty it is kind of a turn off for me. Like I'm bummed he doesn't feel the same way about it as I do. One thing I have learned about my past major relationship is compatibility deserves much more credit then it usually gets. My ex and I had nothing in common and it caused nothing but lots of fights and never having fun with eachother because we liked completely different things.
I really like this man and this is probably the first big disagreement we've had on something. But it's something I strongly believe in and I have friends who are gay. He does too... Which is why I'm confused he's apposed to it... But could this be a deal breaker? I don't want this to bite me in the ass down the road, but I wouldn't want to end it over something like this anyway. Thoughts?

Maybe he is bummed that you don't agree with him.. This whole post has been about what you like and what you want. I am not entirely for or against gay anything. I won't permits it nor deny them their rights but they better leave me the hell alone that's for dang sure !! Your guy has every bit the right to no like it as you do to support it0

I don't see why something like that should be a deal breaker. I do think that two people need to have similar values and beliefs in order for a relationship to work but is disagreeing about the concept of gay marriage that big of a deal? Why should that affect your relationship? If you really feel THAT strongly about it then it may cause issues but ultimately, I don't see why disagreeing about gay marriage should be a deal breaker in a relationship.1
