Never, and if that angered him and killed me for it I would not care because people like that are used to getting their way and I definitely would not give him the satisfaction of it.

I suppose it would be ONE way to legalise lesbian marriage in a country.

Depends on how this dictator rules (fear or honor/welcome from subjects)
Also, all of the other considerations would come first (good personality? Attractive to me? etc)

Yes then I would use my Lady Macbeth charm to convince him/her to change the country to a democracy.

more complicated than it seems. A dictatorship only really implies keeping power through force. If you are the only sane person in a crazy land then you might think using force to impose rational practices or fewer crimes/killings just. I can't think of a "nice" dictator because of the kind of person you have to be to get there. They could have at least in theory a decent and kind side.

So would it be possible to fall in love with one, sure, but marry probably not because it's impossible to keep the peace forever in a land of imposed rule even if you were only repressing cruelty. Those types of societies have to undergo societal change in order to improve. So to me country stability would be the same as relationship stability in this scenario.

I'd prefer to marry an autocrat. Dictators generally don't have the people's well being at their heart whereas Autocrats can. Basically you can have a nation where one person rules but they rule benevolently, generally making their nation a good place to live. This is called an Autocracy, on the other hand, you can live in a nation where said ruler rules with an iron fist, jailing desenters and political opponents at will, this is what we refer to as a Dictatorship.

Besides you just HAD to go and remind us of that Fran Drescher movie, didn't you?
