I need some advice on a tricky family situation.
What would you do if your aunt told you your cousins were divorcing and would NOT tell her own sister (my mom, the aunt of these two cousins.) My mother practically co-raised her nephew for the first years of his life. But, neither he nor my aunt will tell them about this divorce, however my aunt thought it great to tell me! That makes me monkey in the middle! GRRRR! :mad:
I am supposed to magically remain silent for four to six months (possibly up to a year) while this goes through. That includes holidays and get togethers! ALSO, I hate divorce, and I feel it’s wrong to remain silent about it, but don’t know what else to do. This divorce is predominately based upon selfishness and money (not even legitamate reasons for divorcing…in my opinion.)
My mother will be VERY mad if she finds out I have held it in for six months, but, my Aunt keeps calling and making sure I didn’t say anything. :mad: My, humble opinion is to just tell my mom and forget my aunt who did this to me in the first place! My mom MIGHT be able to still help her nephew…slap sense into him if necessary. :rolleyes:
I do not know what GOD wants me to do. Honor my “secrecy” to my aunt, preserving harmony with them. OR, honor my mother and break the silence causing huge family discord with my aunts uncles and cousins. THANKFULLY, grandma and grandpa died decades agao and don’t have to witness this awful mess. There will be discord either way, but, with the telling my mom, at least I can keep my strong relationship with her. Which I feel most important. HELP PLEASE!
Any advice, as well as prayers that my cousins GROW UP and don’t get a divorce would be most appreciated.
Thanks! God bless you and Mary keep you!
