Most words in these languages have Latin roots; that is why they both are called 'Roman languages'. But 'père' and 'padre'(father) come from the Latin 'pater' and 'mère' and 'madre' (mother) from the Latin 'mater'. 'Cohabiter' and 'cohabitan' (living together) comes from the Latin '' cohabitare'. And the list goes on.
