IS THIS A MATERNAL THING?

Howard asked Hugh about his childhood, and Hugh was very forthcoming, noting that his mother left his home when he was 12: "I felt a bit weird. I felt like a leper...[usually] parents broke up but mums never left." Hugh added that he didn't lose his virginity until he was 18, as his father had put the fear of god into him: "My dad was a full-on Christian...full-on into it...that was one thing you can't do." Later, when Hugh became engaged to an older woman (now his wife), his father asked him: "Be honest, is this is a maternal thing?"
