Would you marry someone whose parents are: Answer to all Yes- I’m not marrying the paretns.
My Mother is very thin
and my father is very over weight.- I get eating habits from both parents.
Granted those Genetics come along with our children but its all about eating right and exersising.
as a married Bee DH doesn’t have thin thin parents but they are not obese! but he has awful eating habbits and its been a … journey.. to change his tastebuds up a bit.
Both of my paretns are recovering Drug addicts
My mom has 23 years clean and my father has 27 – I grew up going to NA meetings and its the main reason I have never tried anything not even alcohol and I never will.
I freely tell people about my parents and sometims I think they are shocked that I am so open about it . It is who my family is and its saved my life.
My best friend from HS just passed away and although it hasn’t been officialy stated so we all assume it was her heavy drug use. There was a reason I never went and partied with her and it was my parents and their recovery… if it wasn’t for that I could be with her now.
IF it was DH’s parents activily using it wouldn’t affect me marrying him just how much my kids got to see the grandparents. bummer. but kids first.
Dh’s Biological parents are divorced.
Mine Never Married
and my adopted Dad dicvorced my mom the year before the wedding.
WE still got hitched.
Does our marrige mimmic our parents messy ones … often. yes. but we are aware of that and acutally in counciling to learn how to break those habits and change those things now. Its working out really great actually.
its wonderful to have such an awesome partner.
We don’t want a divorce because our parents divorce hurt us so much.
as long as DH wasnt. You have to date someone long engouh to know this and the signs. My husband would never abuse me. and if he did I’d be out the door in a heartbeat.
it would affect how much we saw grandparents tho… I’m not leaving my kids with someone abusive.
Have a history of cheating?
Again yup. I’m not marrying the parent. and cheating is not genetic. I would hope the person was disgusted by it . I trust dh completly.
