Recently a friend of mine going through some serious boyfriend problems used her parents' dating experiences and 35 year marriage as a way to justify staying with the wrong guy. In her mind, if her mom and dad could work though their trials and tribulations, then she and her man could too. Though I didn’t agree with her specific situation, I do understood why she was trying to replicate her parents’ happy relationship.
So if you're one of the lucky ones to have parents that have a loving relationship, do tell, do you try to model your own relationships after theirs? Or are you just the opposite?
