Keeping the family peace during political season


Hour Two

Do you worry about politics ruining your personal relationships? Are there family members you re-consider inviting to functions because of their heated, dinner table conversations? Have you and your partner made a pact not to parse a stump speech or even turn off the TV when a presidential debate is on? Our guest, Clark University psychologist, DR.

And Philadelphia couple, ANDREW COLE and JANET LEWIS, discuss how they enjoy a healthy marriage, despite having separate accounts of what they do in the voting booth.
