It's my parent's anniversary today, 49 years, and in that time I have only seen them argue about 3 times, which was short lived.
How did they do it I ask myself ........ well friendship and fairness seems to be the key and respect,
My dad has always been a hard worker and bread winner, and mum stayed at home and looked after the house and children and worked part time to bring extra in.
Dad was born one of ten children and the youngest 8 spent their lives in and out of banardos homes, he went into the merchant navy as soon as he left the home at 16.
Mum was one of two her dad fought in the burmese war and had another fight when he came back due to an unpredictable wife that used her fists and temper on him ,which shattered my mums nerves.
So they both had rough childhoods, yet have made stable parent's for the three of us. Neither drink or have had affairs or have run off to get their heads together so to speak.
I think friendship and fairness towards each other is the key and maybe the fact mum think she is in charge , or dad likes to let her think she is ha ha...................
CONGRATULATIONS MUM AND DADXXXXX
