It's been a bit of a surprise to hear that one of M's siblings is getting a divorce. And I'm sad about it, even though I don't know them very well. Of course it's the children, of similar ages to my own, that I feel for most. It sounds like it's going to be very acrimonious as well, with threats about withholding access already.

And in very bad-taste, at least that's the one in three marriages, I suppose. Not that statistics work that way.

Ohhhh sorry to hear it. If I were you I'd be worried about contact between cousins. I know I saw far less of my grandparents than my cousins whose parents were still together. It's just that bit harder once the mother and father are split, specially if it's the father who is in your side of the family. Any acrimonious silly-beggars, I would happily bitch-slap both parties, after being the child of that sort of thing I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Abster xx
