1/2 You've described my wife and me up until about two years ago.
We also married young (younger than you two) and have been together nearly 23 years now.
I completely gave up on politics in the mid-2000's.
Big tech, oddly enough, roped me back in. I understood, earlier than most, how dangerous Google, etc. were.
My wife was convinced I was borderline crazy just a few years ago [your phone listens to you and shows you ads based on that data -- that sort of thing].
