My sister just told me (which I have seen coming) that she and her hubby are getting a divorce. She has been with bil since they were 16 and have 2 kids. And I want to be there for her, but I live across the country from her. I would appreciate any advice on what I can do to 'be there' for her when I am miles and miles away. I'm worried about her. She says that she is ok. But, I don't think that it really has hit her yet. TIA!!

My brother is going through a divorce and I sent him a nice card to let him know I am thinking of him and things will get better eventually. I was thinking maybe a gift card to somewhere special. There isn't a whole lot to do except lend an ear. Don't badmouth the spouse because if by some chance they get back together someday she will remember you bashing him.
