Cupid’s Advice: 

Telling someone that you and your ex lover have decided to split is not the easiest tasks especially when there is family involved. Some couples live separate lives, but stay together in order to please their family members.This is not the best idea especially when you are not happy being with this person. Cupid has some relationship advice when it comes to telling your family and friends about your divorce:

1. Don’t break the news at a family event: This can become awkward very quickly. You don’t want to ruin a fun filled event with some bad news. Avoid making any “grand entrance” with news about a separation. You don’t want to be put on the spot to answer private questions about your relationship.

2. Try not to play the blame game: Pointing fingers at why the relationship ended is the easiest way for many to avoid talking about what really happened. Even if it is the other person’s fault try not to be petty about what happened. Accepting what when wrong is the first part of the healing process. Learn how to tell the story in a positive light. Use words like “this was the best decision for us” or “we’ve come to a mutual agreement”. Not only is this mature, but this language will be best for telling important people like your children.
