How sad for these people that this is the memory of their life with their parents.  I'm researching for my 50th anniversary and feeling so good about my life with my husband and children.  we are so fortunate that we grew up together as adults.  These people are still selfish teenagers (the parents).  They don't know how lucky they are that their kids still want to do something.  God bless them.
