My parents' and my relationship is more like that of business partners. Keep each other close, but always watch out of the corner of your eye. Mostly my doing due to political differences. My younger brother was the "apple in their eye." Typical little right wing dick.
Working for a family owned company, I have to deal with father several times a week. But the last time we were together as a "family" was at Nigel's, (my younger brother), send off , [funeral], several months ago. Father and I shook hands, and mother and I hugged once. LOL.....that's our relationship.
-sorry for the in-depth description. Just a really bad day with father today at the office.
