My SIL and BIL might be getting separated and my BIL has two kids from a previous marriage. Even though they aren't blood relatives to us we have always thought of them as our nieces. Is there a way to continue to have a positive relationship with them but not overstep our bounds?

What do you do when one of the parents refuses to accept his/her part (i.e., doesn't pay child support or skips scheduled visitation)? How do you explain that to kids?
My parents stayed together "for the children". I must say it was much harder on us when my parents split after 26 years of marriage. If the parents fight all the time, it would be hard on the kids at first, however in the end they would understand that it was for the best.
How do you explain to your teenage children that you don't love your spouse and just stayed together so that the child had two parents?
