Re: How do you explain the grandparents' divorce and remarriage to your children?
my wife's parents divorced when she was an adult, and her father remarried the year before we got married. he died when our eldest was 10 months, but we still visit his wife (nana) at least once ayear for about a week (she lives 7 hours away). for us it wasn't a big deal -- just that zayde and bubbe were mommy's dad and mom, and that after they got divorced, he married nana and bubbe met papa ken. its never been a source of confusion for our kids, and they never assumed that either papa ken -- mil's boyfriend -- or nana was a parent to dw. I don't think why they got divorced has come up yet. my parents are still married.
