I illustrated the stark differences between my mom and dad who have been married for 40-year.
You could always rely on my mother for straightforward answers.
My father was, and still is, always very pleasant, and not wanting to cause friction or worry with seemingly controversial statements
He’s very intelligent and book smart, so as I’d gotten older, I figured he was just trying to give me answers that he thought wouldn’t upset me. I eventually ended up figuring it out from a book in my elementary school library. The book was Where Did I Come From, by Peter Mayle
Ma had no time for sentimental or florid explanations
Papa just wanted me to be happy
My mom also warned me about STDs
My dad was right to strict at times
Both my parents are hard-working people who went through a lot. So I can understand this sentiment
Despite their difference, they were extremely supportive parents who were there for us all the way
