Just Wondering....

what percentage of the Pit is from a family that is not necessarily nuclear?
(haha no, not radioactive, the other thing)












were you raised by your biological parents, mostly?

parents ever split up?

spend a few years with your grandparent(s)?

have your biological parents played a major role in your life? positively or negatively, do you think?

here is the place to answer these questions and more!
poll incoming.

I've had the very unusual situation of being in a family where my biological parents are still together and there have been no divorces or anything in my close family (aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins). Weird hey.

same here. No divorces, nothing. probably stems from our inability to let anything go

I am a bastard.

And I actually had two cousins that called me that when I was little, like it was the 18th century.

I was raised by my bioligical parents and they are still married even though they talk about getting a divorce every few years, only to change their minds.

Same. Although my parents have threatened to divorce quite a few times.

My grandparents on my dad's side also hated each other for nearly their entire marriage and slept in separate rooms for more than 30 years. So I don't know if it has more to do with my family having successful marriages or them just refusing to divorce for one reason or another.

My rents now sleep in separate rooms, because they reckon they are getting too old and actually need to sleep. If they're in the same bed they won't because my dad has a lot of trouble sleeping so he tosses and gets up quite regularly and used to freak out about waking mum. I buy that story.

TS I think you have the most unusual and unrepresentative sample group here!

By the way, I answered "yes," but I'd forgotten that my parents hired help to raise me for a significant amount of time. Would I still qualify if the help assisted in raising me?

My biological parents have been together since they were married and I was raised by them.

No one in my immediate or close extended family has had a divorce. That is for cultural reasons; some of my older married relatives avoid their husbands/wives as much as possible.

I was raised by my biological parents. They've been happily married for I think 36 years now. My mom quit working to stay home with me and my siblings when we were younger.
My dad was partially incapable of working* (which of course isn't good in itself), but for us as a family this meant that he only worked half days and was home a lot as well. So I spent a lot of time with both my parents and they were definitely a positive influence.

Other than that I've got one uncle who has gotten a divorce about fifteen years ago and has remarried since.

*I'm not sure what you would call this in English. It's a medical/legal thing where he is considered partially disabled and is only allowed to work a certain time. He gets welfare on top of the money he can earn while working because of this.

Both parents were present, but tbh me and my dad can be in the same room AND 10,000 miles apart at the same time.

Neither of us are big at initiating conversation.
