My divorce was final in August 2008 (I had decided to divorce in Sept 2007 and served him in Jan 2008). We haven't told my daughter about the divorce yet. The biggest reason is because my ex was in Iraq as a contractor for KBR for the past 3 years and it was the norm for her to not have him living with us and only visiting a week or so every 3 or 4 months, if that. Now he is back and is living in our house until it sells (which could be soon!). I have since moved with my daughter to my home town about 200 miles away to be closer to my family & friends for support & the love that we haven't had for some time. Now, we are faced with the questions from her, as to why we don't do allot of things as a family anymore. I would like to tell her after the holidays (with my ex of course), but I'm just at a loss for what to say....
Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!
