Unexpected duties

Many duties or expectations go far beyond what was anticipated. For example, my mother said, in regards to my future husband and mother-in-law, "He is wonderful, but I hate to see you become involved with her." I foolishly answered, "Mother, I am not marrying her." With a sideways look, she replied, "That is what you think!" How wise she was. Dealing with some parents as a teacher was quite the same.
