My parents are still married. For a long time I did not like them. Then I had kids. I still dont agree with things that they did, but now I understand that kids dont come with a manual. When I went thru rough times with my wife, and we were apart for 2 years, my parents helped me any way they could. For the most part they were great parents. Supportive and loving. Sometimes they could be my worst enemy. I learned to filter out a lot of things I did not need, and explain to them when they overstepped the lines I tried to make clear. We are still on great terms. As a matter of fact, they are coming over for dinner tomorrow night. They will always be my parents, but they are people as well.
