There definitely has to be similar core values in order for a relationship to even get off the ground in my experience. Otherwise all the work to overcome other differences would seem too much I think. Good point.
Differences are healthy and intriguing in most cases but fundamental differences like the presence of racism or the value of emotional involvement would not be.
