My parents have a lot of family, but they stopped talking to their families competely. I understand why my mom decided to cut off most of her family, because they were much more supportive of us when we had money and now that we have nothing to offer them a lot of her family members stopped talking to us. A few of her sisters stole from her as well. but I don't understand why my dad cut off his family... They seem like nice people but he never actually talks to them. So what are a few things that makes a person cut off their family once they get a family of their own and move out?
