A wonderful guy might not be a good match

Dear Amy: I have been dating a man for seven months. He is absolutely wonderful. We even talk about marriage, except that we don’t agree on the policy. This has become even more evident with the recent Supreme Court decision in the Dobbs case.

We decided to adopt the rule “we have different points of view, but we support”.

Yesterday I hesitantly asked the question, “Are you vaccinated against COVID?”

I was almost afraid to hear his answer because I knew what it would be, and of course he was not vaccinated.

It’s completely my fault that I didn’t have this conversation earlier in the relationship, as I have lupus and am on multiple immunosuppressive medications.

With the latest variant of COVID being so contagious, I am very worried that he will eventually catch the virus, and then I will catch him because we spend so much time together.

When I asked if he wanted to get vaccinated for me, he said “No” and gave me a long list of political reasons.

How do I explain how important it is for my health?

I have five children (all under 18) from my previous marriage.

With my health problems, I already fear leaving my children too soon, if the worst should happen.

Should I just throw away a relationship that ultimately makes me happy? Should I end it because of political differences?
