My mother as well as father are harshly outdated fashioned.
When our father wanted to propose, he asked our Grandfather for his daughter’s hand in marriage.
Once they were married, they wanted nothing more than the idyllic American Dream of the white picket fence as well as a family of four. As much as they appreciate each other, they also bicker constantly. It’s mostly harmless as well as without malicious intent, however they do voice their disagreements loudly. One of the things they often war over is what to make for brunch. They each appreciate something the other hates, as well as this results in official confrontation over what they eat while together. The other thing they have never agreed on is temperature settings in the house. Like our wifey as well as I, our parents have a digital thermostat for their central heating as well as cooling system. My mother always likes the condo to be on the warmer side, while our father almost exclusively wants the A/C cranked to a frigid setting at all times, regardless of the weather outside. Eventually, they resorted to zone controlled heating as well as cooling. My father’s office has its own ductless mini cut that he can set to a frigid temperature while our mother is unaffected in the residing room. Although this isn’t a perfect fix, especially since they still share a living room at night, it has improved our father’s moods while he works or reads in his study. My mother seems to be a tiny bit happier as well, absolutely gratified not having to wear as many sweaters on warm Summer days while frigid indoors. Every little bit of change counts in the end.
