My mom died almost 5 years ago. She and I didn't talk for a couple of years before she died. I was the black sheep when I was 5 and she married my stepdad. They had his son and a son together. I just got lost. They'd forget my birthday, not let me out of the house (which changed once I was a teen). My 'real' dad passed when I was 14 but I never knew them.
I was super close with my mom before she passed. My relationship with dad is good and with my stepdad. My stepdad and I became a lot closer after she passed.
I get along great with my mom. I suspect it's because we don't live under the same roof. I didn't see or talk to my dad for many years after he left us, I was 14 y/o. I started talking to him again, phone only, when I was in my 20's. He passed away almost 12 years ago. I went to the funeral but I never saw him face to face while he was alive.
Yes. For a long time my mom and I never got along, growing up...but now we do. And I have always been close to my dad too.
I get along with my mom for the most part. I never was close to my dad though.
Yes I get along with my parents...don't get me wrong, I get aggravated at them from time to time, but other than that we have a wonderful relationship.
