Psychology Of A Witch-Normal Marriage:

Two of my characters have mortal fathers and witch mothers. I kinda want to explore, as realisticly as possible. One character's father is pretty accepting of magic and the other's is a bit more Darrin Stevens like in attitude, although he has good reasons to be. This thread more information on the society the two character's mothers come from as well as some character information if it helps.

It really depends on the characters.

Some thoughts: In our society, it's traditional for the man to have more power than the woman. So a more masculine normal guy might have trouble dealing with the thought that his wife can do all these gnarly magic things that he can't do.

On the other hand, maybe he loves her too much to care, or maybe takes pride in the things he can do that she can't, or maybe he takes vicarious pleasure in her magic and the conveniences of it.

In one story I'm working on, there's a mage mother, a non-mage father, a mage son and an Anti-Magic daughter. Mages in that society are seriously freaked out by Anti-Magic, just as non-mages freak out about mages. The father is the one who has the easiest time accepting his daughter's powers, because he's already accepted his wife having magic when he doesn't, and he doesn't think this is any different. (And I should really dig that up and resume work on it!)
If I'm asking for advice on a story idea, don't tell me it can't be done.

Unfortunate Implication?

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
