Gayle McCormick, has left her husband who she has been married to for 22 years
The retired California prison guard, a self-described “Democrat leaning toward socialist,” was stunned when her husband casually mentioned during a lunch with friends last year that he planned to vote for Trump – a revelation she described as a “deal breaker.”
“It totally undid me that he could vote for Trump,” said McCormick, 73, who had not thought of leaving the conservative Republican before but felt “betrayed” by his support for Trump.
“I felt like I had been fooling myself. It opened up areas between us I had not faced before. I realised how far I had gone in my life to accept things I would have never accepted when I was younger.”
Though her husabnd who says he had not thought of leaving the conservative Republican before but felt “betrayed” by his support for Trump ended up not voting for Trump. McCormick, says she is too old to divorce her husband, but wants to live apart because she couldn’t stand the thought of arguing with her husband every damn day.
