Ok my Moms brother and his wife are getting divorced, they have 3 kids under 13, the 2 boys (13, 7) really look up to me, and I am like their idol for some reason. They live in Wales and Im in Ireland, but we are quite close to them and see them around 2 or 3 times each year, they come over for in summer and christmas. So the whole family (including wife) are comeing over next week and staying down the south for a week, but then my uncles wife is going back to wales, when my uncle and the kids come up to stay with us for a week. My whole family are really close, and I love my aunt very much as do the rest of the fam. But I just got told today they are seperating, and I am really hurt. Is she still my aunt? What do I say to the children to get their mind off things when they come up? The 2 younger kids don't really understand the severity of the situation and look forward to having 2 houses. Im pretty confused about this. In Ireland, divorce is extremley rare, and it is my aunt looking for the seperation, it came as a huge shock to my uncle. I consider him like a father to me, since my Dad died he has been one of the only real main male influences on me. So I feel very much involved in this. How do I take the kids minds off things and just try and help them have a nice 2 weeks with us? What is my aunt to me? is she still my aunt? Im really confused guys please help.
