Now it seems as if everybody, no matter which side of politics they're on, is online asking "Who was Paul Ryan's black college sweetheart?"

Couples are meeting (especially online) with mutual attraction, love, shared values and shared dreams being the critical factors in getting together. It's not a Right or Left political thing.
