My Mom and Dad fought too much also. It is hell growing up in an environment where you don't feel loved, safe, or accepted. Needless to say I am close to neither of them and tomorrow I have to celebrate Fathers' Day as if none of my crappy childhood happened. Sad.
I was always closer to my dad, afterall,he was the one who caught me having sex with the football coach's son, he didnt freak out at all, he just told me to be more careful.....Thats been our little secret..... I became close to my sister when i saw her at the club years ago, i never in a million years thought she'd come to a club considering how very religious she was.... We had so much fun that night, she goes out all the time now and is so much happier.....
Growing up, I was closer with my mother. But she was a stay-at-home mom and my dad worked a lot so I was just around her more. As an adult, I'm probably equally close. I talk to my mother much more frequently but have more meaningful conversations with my father. My mother is more into telling me gossip where as my father is more into talking about things in his life and work.
That may be, but don't draw any conclusions about homosexuality and fathers there. I think generally speaking, if you asked anyone this question of any sexuality, the majority would no doubt say they are closer to their mother.
Was not really close to anyone. Was in boarding schools most of my childhood. When I was home, Mother and Father would be traveling. If I had to choose, I would say Mother and I had a comfortable relationship. Father and my brother had a very strong relationship/bond. After my brother died, Father's demise was 2 weeks later. (My brother was Gay also.) Cheers, Keith
I was mostly raised by my grandparents from I was very little up til age 7 or 8, then my parents divorced and I grew very close to my mom. My dad has always been there but my relationship with him has been kinda shaky. So I would say I've always been closer to my mom. No brothers or sisters from that marriage.
