I have recently found out I am in a relationship with a communist. After telling my friends, they told me I should dump him. However, I personally don't feel that I should dump him, but I know that my friends will continue to pester me on this matter.
As such, I want a second opinion on what others think.
I, personally, want to tell you some of his traits, in order to get a better picture of him, and to eliminate some prejudice on the matter.
-He currently works in the field of accounting, making over 100k.
-He lives in a very small house.
-He gives away 60% of his paycheck to charity.
-Midrange Attractiveness, not ugly, not drop-dead gorgeous.
-Works out twice a week, fairly toned muscles
-Is a member of Mensa
-Works every other Friday at a soup kitchen.
-Some artistic ability, can replicate a decent picture of people's faces.
-Reads 2-5 books per month.
-Music tendencies vary, however, leans towards classical, piano music, and other. One song I could find is this: Con Te Partiro by Andrea Bocelli
His views are communist, and as my friends state, this will lead me to an unhappy life.
Do you agree with them and believe I should break up with him, or should I continue and see how this goes?
Also, any thoughts/experiences with dating a communist.

Come on... if anything, I'm sorry but I think you should break up with him because HE needs to be with someone smarter than YOU.
You're going by what your friends think?
He has very developed, mature (and in my opinion much needed) beliefs about the world... whereas you have none to counteract them, but rather would listen to your friends and people on the internet?
What about YOUR thoughts about dating a communist? Do YOU agree with communism?
I think you are not compattible with him if you not only do not share his socialist views, but don't seem to even have any of your own views but would rather place your friends as bastions of judgement.
You don't even write why your friends think it will lead to an unhappy life. Your friends are clearly sheep who believe whatever the media tells them. Let me educate you: socialism means equal wealth distribution, but it can never truly be put into practice because human beings are so selfish and most governments that promoted communism/socialism ended up robbing the people blind. If your guy really makes that much and gives so much away he really is an exemplary human being.
Our system is capitalistic and that's why our media and government demonized communism so much. Not because it's wrong, but because they want to promote capitalism.
Get an education to think about the issue for yourself. This is an answer for you and you alone.1
