Episode 034: Thoughts from Mom-nonymous
Episode 034: Parenting Your Parents with special guest Samantha Gurewitz
Samantha Gurewitz had a Mom who has been married a few times. She and husband #3 bought Samantha into this world. Her mom then divorced and married #4. This guy wasn’t very nice, they fought all the time and that is what Samantha lived with -constant bickering.
Samantha didn’t have any rules or direction when dating. She pretty much did what she pleased –sex, drinking, and drugs. No rules or parental input.
She was going to marry a guy who cheated/groped another woman. She was going to marry him for insurance. After she spoke up about the lack of a ring, he offered her an ugly ring. She backed out of the wedding at the last minute and they remained a couple. They tried to work it out. They stayed together, but Sam quit doing the things she loved. She even quit improve for awhile. They eventually parted ways.
Samantha has dated guys with talent some without trying to figure out where she can find a partner who is right for her. Having seen so much fighting in her Moms’ marriages, she admits that she has come out very broken and and confused. She really needs someone who understands her past and loves her for where she is today.
