How can I explain to my kids my SIL is now with a woman?

say nothing they will work it out in their own minds and take it in their stride

There’s no need to explain anything unless they ask questions… then you teach them that people are allowed to love whoever they want

My daughter once said a boy in her class had 2 moms and asked why so I explained different relationships to my 3 children, I just told it bluntly… They are children and have no racism or discrimination at this point so they see it as normal.
Just tell them that your SIL loves this person and wants to be with her and leave it at that…

Don’t make it a huge deal because it isn’t, explain to them that love is love and that this woman is her girlfriend and changes absolutely nothing.

Just tell them? Tell them people can fall in love with the same gender as they are, it’s perfectly normal. Love is love, no matter the gender.

This is aunt Sally and her friend xyz. If it’s a long term relationship then say it’s auntie’s girlfriend . Don’t make a big deal about it… Honestly the kids don’t really care, and if they do they will ask. Would it be any different if she was dating a guy??

You don’t until they ask. Let them start and answer with questions nudge them in the right direction if you need to.

Unless you, yourself, are struggling with how you feel about this, the answer is very simple. That’s her girlfriend, love is love and keep it moving. Your answer will help shape your children’s acceptance or ignorance.

Go into details/explanation just if they move in together or even get serious about their relationship
Or if they show physical love in front of them, and i think it will be different conversations with each one of your kids bc of their age

“Hey kids, aunty has a girlfriend… she’s so happy.”

Normalize it by not saying anything. Refer to her as her girlfriend because that’s what she is. If they have questions they will ask and then you can be as honest and open with them as you feel comfortable

You dont have to mention until they ask, and then it’s just auntie’s girlfriend.

My name is Alison out of respect for you and your spells I must make this testimony know to all. I’ve been to other spell casters without seeing any result,all they want was after my money. I just wished I came to you earlier,i got the best from you. My ex husband was gone for a year and I went everywhere and other spell casters for help but no result until my friend introduce me to Dr. Olisa. After the Love Spell was done, I finally got a calls from him.His spells worked wonders and my husband is back with full of love. It was like a miracle! He suddenly came back with flowers saying that i should for give him,i was truly flabbergasted and shocked when my husband kneel down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him back…I’m really short of words and joyful,you are a God sent to me and my entire family… And now i am a joyful woman once again.Thank you so much Dr Olisa.

Just tell them. How would you explain if she married another man? The exact same way as that. She fell in love with someome else. 🤷

No need unless they ask and then you just simply say that’s who she’s dating because she can
