Juliette came from a stable middle-class family, which gave her a more practical idea of a romantic partnership and what to expect/seek in men. Although her mother and father were quite different, she grew up seeing that those differences can stand the test of time and help to balance things out. Tia grew up without much of a father figure and her search for a romantic partnership stemmed out of a fantasy rather than an example.
