As I am writing an essay for my social policy class, I am reminded of the time when my father first sought training and found a job. This was after 1996 when Clinton passed the welfare reform in 1996 to end welfare as we know it. When my parents immigrated to the US in 1986, I had four older siblings and I was in my mothers womb. My parents took several classes to brush up on their English but they never fully attained a GED or anything because there were many of us (9 children total). Lots of kids, yes, my father was an orphan and only child so he wished to create lineages for the future so that we, the kids, would have family to rely on in times of hardship, unlike his sad story. So, when the reform took place, my father sought training at my brother's high school which was a technical high school that was more focused on skills in certain types of programs from cosmetology, health care, to auto, etc...
Sometimes, my father and brother would share a class together and at that time, my brother was dating his girlfriend. I remember when everyone wanted to be my brother and his girlfriend because they were so perfect for each other.
I don' want to go too much into his situation but... here's a lingering question that I hope I will get some answers from.
strong bonding couple. one gets married for cultural reasons and tries to live on while the other remains single even until this day. the married one has two kids yet is not happy in life and never stops thinking about the other. what do you do?
I just want to say... all i want is for you to be happy and not miserable. Do what you want as long as you are happy but what about your kids?
