雅思口语:a couple you know who have a happy marriage

  这是一个真实的故事。
  有位小朋友成天抱怨,自己出生的意义,就是来给爸妈当电灯泡的…… 或者爸妈是因为在秀恩爱的时候需要一位观众吧。总之,家庭旅行永远是爸妈两个人,甚至三个人视频聊天,聊着聊着两位家长就把她忘了,瞬间开启恩爱模式。所以,这对爸妈实在是太合适我们的雅思口语了!
  如果你的爸妈也如此甜腻,或者你也认识类似的爸妈,快来秀出来虐虐狗吧:
  I'd like to talk about my roommate's parent.
  I was told they've been married for almost 30 years, but they are still as sweet as those newly-weds.
  Her father is the breadwinner, and her mom is a homemaker who takes care of everything at home, but it's always her mom who has the final say on the big decisions like buying a house or a car.
  And the three of them would video chat about 3 times a week. At first, her parents would listen to her talking about what's going on at school, but after a few minutes, her parents would totally ignore her and start to chat with each other, just like she's not there. So this public display of affection is really killing my roommate. (PDA = public display of affection)
  Oh, I almost forgot, they would take several trips a year, at home and abroad. For them, it's like having honeymoons every year, of course, without my roommate who otherwise would be the third wheel.
  And I'm sure we don't call her mom a homemaker for no reason. She's like a superwoman, I mean, she's quite versatile. For starters, she's good with her hands, she always makes scarf and sweaters for her husband. And also, she's an excellent cook, what she makes is out of this world. People say, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, I guess they are right.
  语言点解析:
  newly-wed = a person who has recently got married 例如:
  The newly-weds spent their honeymoon in Venice.
  breadwinner = a person who supports their family with the money they earn例如:
  When the baby was born, I became the sole breadwinner.
  homemaker = a person who works at home and takes care of the house and family
  say = the right to influence something by giving your opinion before a decision is made例如:
  We had no say in the decision to sell the company.
  People want a greater say in local government.
  The judge has the final say on the sentence.
  versatile = (of a person) able to do many different things 例如:
  He's a versatile actor who has played a wide variety of parts.
  be good with your hands = to be skillful at making or doing things with your hands
  out of this world = used to emphasize how good, beautiful, etc. something is例如:
  The meal was out of this world.
