Hubby and I are very touchy feely. We hug, hold hands, tease, and cuddle on the couch when we watch tv. My dd (15) has a girlfriend who spends the night every once and a while whoes parents are newly divorced.... and she is having a really hard time of it.
Do hubby and I act normal when she is here... or do we tone it down a bit?
One the one hand I feel we are a good example and shouldnt change who we are.
On the other hand I dont want her to feel bad seeing us knowing that her parents couldnt work through their issues.
None of our other kids really have friends whoes parents are divorced.

Nope, just keep doing what you're doing. First, it give a lot of kids security to see marriages working when their parents' didn't. It gives them hope that their marriage can make it. Also, your kids are the priority. Your kids need, every chance they get, to see the love between their parents and to feel the security that that gives them. It'll probably be just as good for their friend. It's nice, though to see that you care about your daughter's friend and want to make her feel comfortable and secure at your house. Good job!
