Are They Still Together? Reason For Their Separation

Every relationship has problems; if it doesn’t, it’s not a relationship. The same is the case with them. Amber and Jim’s difference gained attention when their son, Michael, disclosed his sexual orientation. One of the reasons for their separation is a financial problem. After their son came out as gay, he stated that his dad was not providing him financially for his college.
“I came out as gay, and that’s how it all started; I was advised that if I ever did everything that he didn’t approve of, I would be expelled from school, I’d don’t ever see my mates again, and he was likely to harm my friends if he didn’t tell people what he would want.” Said Michael, Amber, and Jim’s son. He further added that his expenses were cut off because he was gay.
When talking personally, Michael told that he was economically and personally cut off and couldn’t meet his family or relatives from Jim’s side. “And afterward, when I began living with my mother, it was he wasn’t heading to let me speak to my younger sisters on his side of him and Amber.” said the boy.
In response to this, Jim used his pending case in court as a reason why he couldn’t support his son financially. The second reason that could have contributed to their fallout is Amber’s cancer. Not once, but twice, she fought breast cancer in her life. Jim blamed Amber’s lifestyle for her cancer.
