    Post Re: How did you grow up?

    I grew up with both biological parents from birth till about 10
    At about age 10 the parents divorced.
    I lived with mother a few months until she asked me to leave.
    I lived with my father till about 17-18 when he decided to move far away from my school.
    I then finished up school living with my older 1/2 brother.


    I picked biological father because I feel that he was the one who actually raised me even when they were both married.

    I also have another interesting thing to add to this post. Yes, I was born by both biological parents married. I got a strange fact, well not really strange but kinda rare. My parents were born on the same day.

    Post Re: How did you grow up?

    I guess I'm in the minority here. I was raised by mother, step-father, my grandparents, and various aunts & uncles. I lived with my mother's family for many years so I'm very close with them - my aunts & uncles are like siblings and my grandparents were my second parents. I am an only child, but I have a huge family: 14 aunts & uncles and about 25 1st cousins. I also spent a lot of time with my great aunts & great uncles before they started dying off. My Mom is fantastic and we are very close, although nothing alike. My Dad is way, way too much like me, but we still get along just fine.

    My parents were never married. They were both 16 when I was born - still in high school and still just kids themselves. I couldn't have asked for a better family, though. My parents rawk.

    Raised by both parents with several brothers. The extended family saw only occasioanlly as they lived out of state growing up.

    One of my great-great-great grandparents had over 20 children (no adoptions). Now that must of been interesting...and um.. no, they did not live in a shoe!

    They really were into family in those days.
    Turman found a copy of The Graduate, and thought highly enough of the story that he made a movie he considered to be 90-percent faithful to the book.

    But Turman and director Mike Nichols made one key adaptation, changing the Braddocks from WASP-y blonde characters into a dark-haired, more ethnic-looking family.

    LOL! No, not as far as I know. It's not impossible tho. They did originally move to the Catholic sanctuary colony of Maryland in the 1600's sometime; that colony went Protestant in the 1600's and from what I understand the colonists were expected to declare loyalty to the Church of England...that was tied to the wars of those times in England and Ireland of which I am not positive of the details. King James II and Cromwell, etc.
