I get along with both of my parents well. That being said, I get along with my mom better then my dad (parents divorced at the age of 3 for reference).
My mom is very nurturing, kind, loving, a humantarian in effect, and is very graceful. Being the emotionally sensitive child that I was, she cared for me very well. The downside to her, which didn't really come to a head until I graduated highschool, is her lack of logic. She has a very very hard time grasping anything practical and or scientific, and it has and does affect her life in a negative manner. ...She gets sucked into conspiricy theory VERY easily. The biggest parallel between me and her is our thinking styles are nearly exactly the same.
My dad is extremely hard working, reliable, tough, firm, and very protective. He'd jump in front of a bus to save your life without even thinking. Bound to duty, he will help you with any problem you have (so long as you help yourself). The downside is he has nearly no empathy, and can not emotionally relate to anything outside of himself. He's too logical and forgets the human aspect very often. I never got along with him as a child, and it wasnt until I graduated highschool that we could somewhat relate. The biggest parallel between me and him is our motivations are nearly exactly the same.
Also, you might be able to see why they were only married for 4 years, haha. I love my parents very much, and they feel the same about me, despite the very rough childhood I had.
