Throughout the campaign, people were taking sides, and the effects began to permeate the bedroom.
Couples were splitting up in "you’re fired" style — that is, instantly and without warning.
As a dating coach in the business of love, I saw first-hand the strain in people’s relationships — including mine — when Trump ran for and eventually became president. We began sending each other digital versions of photographs neither of us had tossed away.
During the presidential campaign, I found myself on the opposite end of the political spectrum from the man whom I thought was the love of my life.

That was, until the heated election season rolled in, where out of nowhere, our relationship began to fray, and our perfect world abruptly started to crumble."I can’t take another four years of the Clintons," he murmured while pouring himself a martini.
"Don’t tell me you’d vote for Trump," I yelled and lost my appetite.
