I also grew up in a single parent (mother) family, but it\\\'s a little weird, I wasn\\\'t told that my brother and I had different fathers till I was 33, his father was trying to make contact. Looking back it was fairly obvious, I was 4 years younger, but about the same size as him, but you don\\\'t think to ask those questions when you\\\'re young. We had lots of family around though, aunts and uncles, so we never missed out. And I know lots of kids that grew up in \\\"normal\\\" families that are really fucked up.

P.S. I do get to laugh at him though, he has a half brother on the other side who has the same name as him, now that\\\'s awkward!

Its fascinating how some kids grow up in the strangest conditions into very ordinary and well adjusted people, and others, start out in such an average situation only to becomes something totally bizarre. The pendulum swings always. Really makes you wonder about the whole nature and nurture more. As of yet, we cannot quantify upbringing and it makes for a world of very different results. As you said, some \"really fucked up\" peaople. Maybe I should have cited more how we live in an age that seems to not frown so much on the nonclassical design as it use to. Sure people are fighting gay marriage tooth and nail, but remember when being called a bastard actually meant something really bad. When a single mother deserves a stoning in town square. We have moved forward in some ways I\'m glad to see.
