A bit marriage/ nuclear family focused...
on 11 March 2011
We got 2 of these, one for my partner's parents and one for my mum. It works well if the grandparents in question are still married/following the nuclear family standard and for the religiously inclined as half the questions seem geared to relatives wedding days, the grandparents wedding day, clothes/expectations etc. Also, some questions are very biased, such as assuming you bake cakes with a woman and go to the park or play sports with a man, something my mum cannot really relate to as she both played sports and baked cakes, which most people probably do... I ended up writing my own questions about what she has done in life such as career, travels etc as this book seem to think marriges are the only important thing to aspire to. The book is otherwise nicely laid out and if you have a traditional family with uncomplicated family trees this would be a good purchase.
