We have been married nearly 30 years, we don't share the same political beliefs but we agreed a long time ago to agree to disagree.
He is however becoming more and more convinced by the Covid conspiracy theories which has caused heated arguments. He reads about it and listens to podcasts about it all the time and doesn't believe the numbers of people dying are truly Covid related
On the Thursday TV press conference, the medical officer made reference to those who think it is all a hoax and they should grow up, he also said that attitude is an insult to the nurses and medical professions.
I have heard the terms before but it just resonated with me this time and I asked my husband if he thinks the entire NHS and the army are in cahoots and are just playing along with the hoax. He had his eyes closed as if pretending to be asleep (he wasn't) and didn't answer me, the rest of the evening was spent in silence.
By the time I went to bed I was shaking with anger and just wanted to scream and cry at the thought of his denial of all the people involved in caring, helping, supporting, this list of people is endless.
Perhaps I have blown it all out of proportion and I wasn't sure whether to post this under coronavirus so forgive me if I am in the wrong place, but at the moment it feels like I cannot get over his lack of belief, care or humanitarian compassion.
I cant quite see where our relationship can go from here as I really cannot agree to disagree on this.
Can anyone please help me to see and think a bit more clearly please?
