I talk with my mother on the phone everyday. She and my dad are in a different country, and I am in a different country. I call up home everyday, but inevitably end up talking only a few sentences to her, and talking all the rest of the time to my dad.
I really feel sorry for my mom. And my dad used to explicitly tell me several times to not talk to my mom, and instead come and talk to him.. he used to tell me that she doesn't know anything. And I was really scared of my dad and wanted to please him, so I think I ended up just ignoring her all together growing up.
They are still married. Divorce is not very common in my country. And besides my mother really didn't have any other go. So poor thing, she just put up with whatever my father did. And I know how much injustice he had done to her. She doesn't fight back at all. She just bears everything in silence.
I am very affectionate twoards her, even though I don't talk to her that much or share a lot of things with her. And recently, my father is also changed somewhat - ever since I left my home and came out. He is trying to be affectionate towards her also. So she is little happy now. She was not at all happy when I was in the house. Thanks for asking.
