For those of you who thought Brad Womack had finally found true love his second time around, think again.  According to HollywoodLife, Emily Maynard’s mom, Susan Maynard, commented that their relationship is a bit rocky.  Maynard told People, “They have not officially broken up.  It’s still kind of on and off, I hear nothing but good things about Brad.  They are still just trying to get to know each other.”  Although it doesn’t seem as though Susan Maynard has much confidence in the couple making it in the long run, we will just have to wait and see.

Do your parents know best when it comes to your relationships?

Cupid’s Advice:

As frustrating as our parents can be sometimes, they are the people that have known us the longest.  Cupid has some advice on why our parents may know what’s best when it comes to our relationships:

1. Your best interests in mind: As much as we all love our friends, the only people who we can be positive only want what’s best for us are our parents.

2. They’ve been there: It may be strange to think of your parents as young and dating, but they were in your shoes once before.  So, don’t be quick to rule out their advice.  It comes from a place of experience.

3. They know you the best: The only people who know us better than we know ourselves are the people who have known us the longest — our parents.  This means that they probably also know what you need in a relationship.
