I'm not trying to be rude here, if you don't want to answer, then feel free to skip this entry.
1a. Are your parents divorced?
1b. If they aren't, do you get frustrated when people say "Ah, you have it so easy, your parents are together!" or something along those lines?
2. Did they get remarried?
3a. Did you approve of your mom/dad remarrying?
3b. If no, what objections did you have?
4a. Were you accepting of your new stepmom/stepdad?
4b. Did you ever call them Mom or Dad?
5a. Did you ever have problems with the new "family"?
5b. Did the new "family" ever have problems with you?
And for a personal question: my father and stepmom are having their first anniversary in less than a month. I want to surprise them with a card or gift showing them that I remembered and that I care. I truly, honestly cannot think of anything to give. I'm still young, so I can't buy wine, and my Father's Day tradition is to give my dad a basket of fine chocolates and "treats". These aren't the sort of people you'd jokingly give condoms; besides the fact that they would look at me like I just put Satan up my butthole, they're 54 and 55, and that's ew. What general gift would you give them (besides a gift certificate)? If you knew they were into music and singing, and were fairly conservative religious folks what would you give them? (I mentioned religion because, like I said, I'm not going to give them something like condoms.) Thanks for any help!( Collapse )
