The intended purpose of this study is to provide participants with a platform to share their experience in both the current political environment and through other political times in their lifetime as an individual and as a person in a same sex relationship. The research question addressed was focused on individual experiences over time, experiences as a couple, views on current politics and perception of the impact of the political environment on individuals and couples’ experience of life. In summation, a primary research question could be brought to “How do you feel the current political environment affects you as an individual and you and your partner as a couple?”
