A Loveless Story: Surely Not Your Ordinary Love Story
My parent’s love story is not what every fairy tale story should end, “And they live happily ever after.”. My parents have a unique love story to tell. Allow me to share my parent’s unique love story.
They have been married for forty-one years, and been living together for forty-four years. My mother met my father when she was still 16 years old and he was the only man she has ever been with. Looking at the photos of my dad when he was a teenager, he looks like John Mellencamp Cougar. He had a long and feathered brown hair, loved to wear tight bell-bottom jeans, white shirt, and he drove an orange Trans Am. My dad was regarded as a “cool” guy and my mom was an ordinary teenage girl.
My mother attended Catholic school, who always wear uniform every day, and her hair was always curled by her mother using Coca-Cola cans. She found a great escape being and dating my dad as her parents were always strict and conservative. She became hot and fabulous! She has a photo taken at a carnival wearing a yellow halter-top belly blouse and a tight bell-bottom jeans. She said she used to iron her hair to straighten it because there were no hair straighteners before.
My parents had their childhood and teenage years in Brooklyn, a famous and less dangerous place. Children rode bikes going to school, and used uncuttable bike locks to secure them during classes. My mother was allowed to hang out at the park until dusk, and my father used to party all night long.
My mom accepted my dad’s wedding proposal at the age of 19 because she wanted to get out of her parents’ house. My mom craved for freedom because my grandmother was extremely hard on my mom.
My mom got pregnant at the age of 24, and my parents moved to Queens, where my father made good money working in a telephone company. My mom always wanted to have a baby, and when she got pregnant with me, they decided to move to New Jersey. For the rest of her life, my mom was a dedicated mother to my brother and I.
However, as time went on, we saw the love, appreciation, and connection vanishing. They have lived for the sake of their children but have not created a lot of intimate, romantic, and loving memories. My mother gave up her career and entered married life just to escape prison, not knowing the life sentence it brings.
