Hi friends, many of us stay away from our parents from some or the other reasons.. some will get married and stay away and some for either education or job purpose they need to stay away.. Since I am married I stay away from parents and I miss them a lot.. I visit them once or twice in a week.. Somedays I will inform my husband I need to see my parents and go to visit them direcctly from my workplace so my husband can come and take me home later.. So how about you? Please share.

Visiting my parents is one of my desire always because of my work abroad so once a year only visiting them. And besides their place are farway from our home, they are in the province while we are in the city. So every year will planning always vacation there.

Hi friend, its sad that you can visit them only once in year.. I guess they too miss you a lot.. Try to make some time atleast once in 3 months and visit them.. So that they will be happy and you can also make yourself happy.. All the best..

It is my father who visits me. :) You see, we both stay in the same house. But he keeps going out for something or the other. Effectively, he visits me 10 times in a day! he he. Kidding. My father and me - we stay in the same house. I lost my mother almost 45 years ago. I think of her everyday, if that qualifies as a visit.

Hi friend, Thanks for sharing.. Good that you will not leave your parents after marraige.. but in India its a Custom that Girls after marraige will go to her husband's house and if she dont have any brothers then she and her husband takes care of her parents when they are old..

Hi, You are so lucky that you are still staying in the same city with your parents after getting married. For me, I have been living faraway from my parents for the past 15 years. Now I am married and I am still staying far away from them. I will only visit my parents once a year.They will come to visit me too when they are free as we not living in the same country. How I wish I can visit my parents once a week like what you are doing. But for my case, it is impossible and you are very lucky able to see your parents very often.

I seldom visit them since I have started working. But these days, for some reasons, I try visit them every week. As long as I have got nothing to do at work. ^_^
