I’ve found that people who hate their parents are usually trouble. People who love their parents tend to be better-adjusted to life. They tend to play more nicely with others. They’re happier. They have bonds.
I know one pick-up artist who refuses to date women from a broken home. He says that divorce has taught them bad ways of relating to the opposite sex. I think this is extreme, but I find it comforting when people are bonded to their families.
It’s like Pico-Robertson. Some Jews hate this community. They say it is boring. Conformist. Blah, blah. I think this community is what you make of it. I’ve lived all round the world. The dynamics of community are similar. If you look for the good in other people, you will find it (you just won’t have much to blog about).
