His wife you could say “wore the pants’ in his new family.” He should have made decisions that concerned our relationship and me but he didn’t. I never dreamed the day would come when someone would come between one of my parents and I, at most a spouse of one of my parents. I was in his life long before she and his new family came into it. I felt that I was being treated unfairly. I was supposed to be daddy’s little girl just as most girls dream about.
Helen and my mom rarely go out and do anything but when my mom does I’m happy for her. I’m Julie, I had to hide the person I liked because my mom didn’t really like him, and she thought he was too old. Well, my mom shortly let that go because now he basically lives with us. The house is a little crowded at times but we deal with it. A couple of months ago I told my mom I was pregnant, she didn’t find out the way Julies mom did but she said the exact same thing, “I cant be a grandma, I’m to young.” But after letting everything sink in, she got to know Dylan, the guy I liked, and knew that we would be great parents.
This causes a child to think that their parent doesn 't love them because they want to start a new family with another person.

Just remember that talking to your parent about how you feel about them getting remarried will help them decide if it’s the right thing to do. When my mom remarried, I really didn 't care because I have always been the shy one so I wasn 't going to open up to anyone. Time when on and I wish I would of said something.
Being raised in a single parent house there are some pros and cons that come from being raised this way. My mom and dad like I said before never married the reason being is because my dad didn’t want my mom to have me. He told her to get an abortion because he felt like it already coasted him a lot to pay for two kids and then to add a third I guess it seemed to be just too much for him . My mom indeed up having me when I was younger it was very hard. My mom tried to do as much as she can but with no dad in the picture it was even harder.
Personal Narrative: Divorce Mum had briefly informed me that we were going to a place that would "make sure that the right parent looked after us." This was drilled into me for weeks in advance along with the miscellaneous "I love you more than Dad does" and " you enjoy living with me more than Dad, don't you?" What Mum didn't realise is that children can see straight through people like her so her ongoing effort to unbalance my opinion just floated straight past me like a cloud. My brother, on the other hand, had a tendency to make it seem as if he trusted every word Mum said. Whether he really did or whether it was all a very well performed show of his is hard to tell.
But as Chris starting drinking more he changed from the caring man my mother knew and loved to a vicious uncaring man. Sometimes I didn’t understand why she stayed with him, but in her mind being married meant trying to work though problems no matter how daunting so she tried mostly for my brother and me. Then out ... ... middle of paper ... ...again. He really did shape up, that was the best part. As far as I know he is total sober today and has a good relationship with his son.

They haven’t really changed my thoughts in regards to divisions of labor in families; however, I have learned that each arrangement has pros and cons. In addition, these pros and cons may be differently individualized according to each family’s needs. One arrangement that specifically stood out to me was the modern breadwinner/housewife couple because these are the strategies that my parents had adopted before they divorced. The authors mentioned how these types of marriages end in divorce more often than any other. There reasoning behind this was that studies show that mothers who stay at home are less happy than those who work.
This passage reveals a personal truth because, throughout the chapter, Ray keeps repeating how she never wants to ... ... middle of paper ... ...ir food reflected this. Ray's mother was not only making biscuits to feed her stomach, she was also feeding her soul with the rich culture that exists in the south. Ray accepted her mother's wisdom with a grain of salt, vowing never to become her mother. She did not become her mother, but she did acquire her mother's undying love for that which lives around her. Through the simple act of making a Cracker staple, Ray reveals the truth that she loved her mother and disapproved of her giving up on her dreams, but at the same time she embraced her mother's love for all things and for the Cracker culture that can be described simply by the food we southerners love to call soul food.
