    Depends… Will the difference lead to fighting? Or just friendly disagreement? As long as each partner doesn’t take themselves too seriously, should be no problem!

    It does matter if politics matter a lot to you.
    If you are passionate about a specific ideology, then she has to be at least sympathetic to your views, although it is not necessary for her to be as passionate, or active.

    If you have strong political views, it goes with a lot of other things, not directly related to politics.
    Example: say you are a passionate Green sympathiser: you might decide to eat less meat, because it has a great impact on greenhouse gasses. But if your partner does not want to go along with it, it might cause friction.
    You might associate with “friends” just because of their politics, your partner might not appreciate this.
    You might decide to donate money to a political cause, which could cause friction,
    or participate in protest marches etc.

    In general, extreme left and right-wing do not mix well, because it is mostly an issue about values.
    And values are deep-rooted.
    If you love your partner, try to bring him/her to your side, or find middle ground if at all possible.
