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

Just tell them that she is their aunts girl friend and don’t make it sound weird or they will associate as being weird. The youngest may not understand, but I bet the older kids already know about same sex couples.

How about telling the Truth

Oh wow. The kids are little. Love is love … what else is there to say to them

“This is your aunts girlfriend” and if the older one comes back with something about boys only liking girls and vice versa you hit him with a “no anyone can like anyone they want as long as they’re happy”

I wouldn’t say a word . They will pick up on their own , sadly .

I have 6 year old twins and my best friend married a girl. My kids were in their wedding. They’ve never even said anything about it at all. I really wouldn’t worry to much about it. If they ask then explain it. Teach them you love who you love

You explain it to them the exact same way you would explain it to them had she chosen to be with another man. :woman_shrugging:

Just be open and honest

Who cares who she is with. Kids aren’t that closed minded.

No need to explain. Unless they ask. My SIL is with a woman. Our kids don’t see it any different.

Why do you have to explain to a child an adult relationship? A child is a child and should stay in a childs place. It’s not the childs business who’s with who.

You don’t need to unless they ask. My brother is gay and my son has never asked about him and his boyfriends relationship (he’s 6) he just knows that they love eachother and that’s it.

super easy.
ya just go, This is your Aunt’s girlfriend.
