In the latest celebrity news, Bachelorette Becca Kufrin disagrees with fiancé Garrett Yrigoyen’s recent Instagram post. Yrigoyen posted a photo of the “Thin Blue Line,” a symbol showing support for police officers. “With so many friends and family in law enforcement, I couldn’t sit back and not support them,” said Yrigoyen on the post. On a recent episode of the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, the reality TV star spoke out: “I believe that he is a good person… I do think [the post] was tone-deaf, and it was the wrong time and message and sentiment.” Kufrin’s co-host, Rachel Lindsay, was more critical of his silence about the Black Lives Matter movement: “I don’t think Garrett is malicious, but Garrett is what the problem is.”

In celebrity news, Becca Kufrin opened up about her fiancé Garrett’s recent social media posts supporting the police during the Black Lives Matter movement. What do you do if you disagree with your partner’s social views?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s impossible to agree with your partner on everything. However, differences in political and social beliefs can feel harder to find a compromise. If you’re not sure how to talk to your partner when you disagree on these views, Cupid has some advice for you:

1. Acknowledge each other’s views: You don’t have to agree, but you both need to understand where the other is coming from. Acknowledging and understand your partner’s views will let you understand their thought process. Being able to have healthy conversations will prevent misunderstanding their views.

2. Be specific: Focus on the issues you’re discussing. Don’t diminish each other’s beliefs to political parties or candidates. Even if you’re registered to different parties, there are still issues you might have similar views about. Having pointed discussions about the issues you care about will prevent you or your partner from generalizing.

3. Agree to disagree: It’s almost impossible to change people’s beliefs. You need to decide when it’s time to give yourselves space to disagree about topics. Some topics can easily be left alone. Other topics that you’re passionate about may be harder. If you’re unable to comfortably leave these disagreements with your partner, it may be time to consider how these disagreements affect you and your relationship.
