When we go to her house for any event we most likely will spend the night with all of our cousins. My older cousin,Savanna is one month older than me and the oldest of the young teens. Savanna is a very supervising person and always thinks she is everyone's parent or in charge and has always been like that. And it has always bothered me since we were little.

    Divorce in most American homes happens due to lack of establishment of a common ground between the husband and wife.
