Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his fiancée Shailene Woodley are no strangers to making headlines.
Ever since the pair got engaged in the strangest way imaginable, they’ve been in the news non-stop. Between the (maybe shady) origins of their relationship and all the kooky stuff that their pairing has become defined by, it has been one thing after another
And the trend continued this week.
Rodgers has sparked a lot of controversy recently with his views on politics and society. Initially, Woodley seemed to vocally back him. But in the weeks since, that support has apparently subsided.
According to People Magazine, the pair is now actively avoiding talking about politics.
“They are not talking about their politics, and they never really have,” the report reads. “They disagreed on a lot of things. Early on, they decided to agree to disagree about things and not debate them.”
Apparently, the two are on very different pages when it comes to this topic.
“She is not someone whose mind you can change, so Aaron hasn’t even tried,” the report added.
In hindsight, Danica Patrick’s response to news of Rodgers and Woodley getting engaged was quite on point. What a mess this relationship is. No wonder the breakup suspicions emerge so frequently.
All other drama aside, it will be interesting to see what happens with Rodgers going forward. He recently got very blunt on the status of his future with the Packers, and it left folks with more questions than answers. There is at least one squad that seems interested in doing a deal for both him and wide receiver Davante Adams, but it unclear how willing the Packers will be to accommodate.

One way or another, 2022 will be a defining year for Rodgers and Woodley both.
Will this couple ultimately survive it and move forward in a healthy and happy manner?
Time will tell.
