Me 25F with my boyfriend 25M of seven months He has VERY bizarre opinions and I want help understanding him and getting him to understand how others see him Relationships submitted 7 hours ago by throwaway47273747483 have been with my boyfriend Henry for around 7 months now and he's an amazing guy etc I really see this developing into a long and very serious relationship There are no big problems or red flags One thing that gets me though are his political opinions They are esoteric somewhat incomprehensible and frankly bizarre He is an ardent monarchist we are in the UK but not in the typical use of the word ie liking the Queen being an impartial head of state he literally believes in the divine right of kings and that it is the only natural form of government He claims to recognise no monarch since James ll and apparently the real legitimate successor is some guy called Francis who I've never heard of who is also supposedly the rightful king of France and Greece He never votes saying he has no desire to assist his monarch in their choice of servants which is technically how the UK government works the Queen chooses whoever wins the election He expressed disgust at Prince Harry's recent engagement I pressed him as to why I was slightly worried it was racist in nature and he said both Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are commoners who have no business marrying royalty then made some remark about the Royal Family being a ghastly bunch of arriviste Germans anyway so I suppose it doesn't matter It's just strange It's like his worldview is so odd and so far removed from anything I can even begin to understand I can name the current major Royals and a few of the more important historical ones whereas he is an absolute expert He will passionately debate anyone who wants to though again it just makes him look strange Friends at dinner will be discussing normal contemporary political issues and he will interject and go on some tangent about how this all relates to King John's submission to Papal authority in 1213 He does seem to genuinely believe this stuff but it gives an odd impression to those around us No one can really reply beecause they don't know what he's talking about so he definitely gets the feeling he's winning these debates he's far too well-mannered to be rude about it but it's certainly an unspoken truth in his view tikkunolamorgtfo TFW your boyfriend is a 17th Century Catholic vampire who is NOT OVER™ the Glorious Revolution of 1688 Meme
