After five years you would think you’d know everything there is to know about your partner.

One woman has disproven that theory after learning the true feelings of her long-term boyfriend.

The 25-year-old took to Reddit to air her frustration upon learning her 24-year-old boyfriend doesn’t believe she should be allowed to vote.

She told other users she was “so confused” and “didn’t know what to think” after the revelation.

She said: “He just admitted to me that over the past year he’s grown more and more extreme in his views to the point that he believes women have ruined the country (we are American) and that they should not be allowed to vote.”

“He says he did not feel comfortable telling me about this sooner because he thought he would lose me.” She continued.

Since then she has felt as though he doesn’t value her input and views.

After stating her case, she simply wrote: “Am I wrong in questioning our relationship over his new beliefs?”

Twitter users were quick to jump in with their thoughts.

“You cannot ditch him fast enough.” One user wrote. Another shared an illustration of red flags to prove her point.

Many people expressed their views on how this was a good example of how women have been “convinced” that they should always be kind and respectful.

One of the most shared views on the thread said: “It’s actually insane how throughly we’ve convinced women that being kind and accommodating is really important that this woman thinks she needs to be respectful of this view.”

The debate is still going on and the reaction has encouraged the woman to confront her partner about his views.
