My parents fight and argue but they have never talked about splitting up or getting divorced. My father suffered through that and it caused a lot of stress and tension. This stress hindered school and education which eventually put a hold on dreams.

We may not understand the good that develops from hardships at the moment, but later in life we will see the significance they hold.
His parents only showed him hatred and showed him what they both didn’t want him. He tried to break that chain with his family but he always remembered his parents. He was always having flashbacks to his childhood. Despite all the trouble that his parents put him through, he still had love for them both. His mother never came back for him and his siblings but he did not despite her regardless of her abandonment.
He just knew that she was the perfect wife do to the explanation given to him by his older brother.” The only thing I ws not used to was Mala.” (Lahiri 's 190).

Holden was undergoing a very difficult time in his life; he was lonely and desperate for someone to talk to. Instead of seeking his parents, he chose to avoid them. This portrays the lack of the primary support system in Holden’s life, his parents. Religion can be a strong support system providing guidance, comfort, and answers during difficult times.
He seems very distant from his siblings and can hardly hold a conversation with a stranger throughout the book. While this is partly due to grief, Jewel also probably feels as if only his mother was able to give him the love that he deserves. This mentality leads Jewel to ignore others.

), has not displayed his self-realization because he is not aware that he has harmed people from his actions and because of that he has not matured. Pip has been more successfully redeemed at the end of his story than Richard Rodriguez because Pip has recognized his selfish mistakes in his private life, and because of this recognition, he has grown. One’s selfish actions can lead to the destruction of important relationships and regret for one’s past desires. During Richard’s younger years, he had always felt close to his family, speaking the same language, and sharing commonalities. As he grew older he distanced himself from his family because he wanted to feel like an outsider.
He told me that it is not that he does not find women attractive, he thinks that they are very gorgeous, he just does not find them sexually attractive. He just could not see himself ever having sex with a female and for a long time he had trouble accepting this fact about himself. He claimed that he grew up with a father and mother in his household, and he was afraid to inform them of his choice he feared that he would not be accepted and only told a few close friends and cousins. He claimed that it took a lot of courage and he told his mother first before his father. His mom accepted the news rather lightly and claimed that she could always tell that he was homosexual.
Odysseus and Penelope's marriage clearly illustrates the theme of love. The Odyssey also illustrates other relationships where love is of great importance – one of the most emphasized is the father-son relationship between Odysseus and Telemachos. This relationship is a little awkward because they both never really got to know each other but they still care for each other's well being. When Odysseus hears of all the suitors devouring Telemachos's future fortune and mistreating him, he wants to return and revenge the misuse of his family and property. Odysseus, like any parent, also misses his only child while he is at war.
Upholding his part means he does whatever he can do to help raise his children. Sometimes when some women give birth, their husbands or partners abandon or desert them expecting the women to take care of the children alone but this man does what he has to do as a responsible father.

Friendships when men are involved are much different than when men are unmediated. In a mother and child situation, a man unmediated leaves the mother alone to earn money and support her family. The mother is the only figure that the children have to look up to and this is why she must face difficult decisions and ways of life. In other friendships, involving men can cause complications.
