Partly


His parents are still together so I would say yes for him but no for me.


I think we both had good and bad role models


She had a rough start to life but ending with 2 of the most amazing loving people I have ever met!!
I did not come from good relational parents. But 2 very loving caring parents. But I'm learning what I missed everyday from the one I love!


Our parents were all married for 40+ years so I'd say yes. It wasn't always rainbows & sunshine but I think they took their vows seriously and worked through problems rather than quit.

Yes she has awesome parents


I don't think either of our primary role models were the best examples BUT, there are parts of my parents relationship that was beautiful and amazingly loving and I was surrounded by great role models via my maternal grandparents, aunt/uncle and cousins.


I think if you figure it all in we were both blessed


She did, but I don't think I did. I am not sure if I have ever been around good relational role models, but we are working on being some good relational role models for my daughters.


My parents weren't bad, just not what I wanted in my family. My older sister is though and he had great role models in my opinion
Ummm I plead the 5th

No


Definitely


No. I didn't. I still don't. My parents argue in front of me and my siblings even if it's a small argument still. And they never show affection. My mom stays ill at my Dad and really never cares to have him around. So I didn't but I've always known how to love and what love is and so I hope that to him we are never anything like his parents are. But I think he has good role models when it comes to his parents so yeah.
