    Why does a home have to have parents in the first place? What about those of us in child-free relationships? I'm never going to be a father, and my partner is never going to be a mother, and that's the way we want it!

      Huh. When you think about it, no place I've lived as a bachelor has been a home.

        It would be an interesting meta discussion: "What makes a home?" I totally get that not everywhere a person lived would be considered their "home", but also I've had multiple places over the years that I would (at the time) have considered my home.

        So, what's the line between "Place that I live" and "Home"?

          Apparently it requires both a Mommy and a Daddy or it's not a home.

          Seriously, though. I would describe a home is wherever you go to relax and get away from the rest of the world. You may live in a house, but if you're not comfortable there it's not really home to you.

          I answered a question of what every home should have in what I thought. Not what anybody else thought. I should have said a gun, it might have been more neutral....lol!

      This is true as well! I just meant it in direct comparison to the context of the OP, which was parenthood. Obviously a home doesn't require children to be complete either, but blantant bigotry is horseshit.

      Sorry, now I'm getting mad thinking about this. I should probably take a walk or something instead of replying further in this thread.

        You really should calm down a little bit.

        i figured they meant more as in parents. parents make for good home for children

        (they do - children in single parent homes perform way worse in a lot of areas in life, so having parents is good for growing up)
