Using Ser to Express an essential Characteristic

I am a bit upset at the fact that a hint given on a test made me change the correct answer to an incorrect.  I just finished a quiz and the question was "Sus padres ________ bastante delgados. Their parents are quite slim.

(HINT: Their parents have always been slim )".   I knew the answer was "son" however after seeing the hint, I changed it to "tienen" even though I thought, or knew it was wrong.   I changed it based on the hint.    Imagine my dismay when I found out the answer was "son" and I had known it in the first place.
