On family & relationships

How did your parents' choices & guidance in your youth affect the choices you make in relationships now?

For example: My boyfriend's father offered only a brief talk regarding 'the birds & the bees.' He advised him to sleep with a succession of women, moving from one to the next, never returning their calls, & never allowing them to tie him down (basically, screw 'em & leave 'em).
My boyfriend decided to take the exact opposite route. Because of his father's advice, he formed himself into the most honest, kind, upstanding & respectful man I've had the pleasure to know.

Did your parents' words of advice have a similar effect on you, or did you heed their actions instead?
