  • Be honest and forthcoming with them. Don't share things that are personal, but tell them the truth. They are teenagers right? Tell them that you fell out of love with each other and that it isn't fair to you, their dad, or them to stay in a loveless marriage.

  • Go to counseling and have them walk you through it together as a team even if you only go a few times.

  • I would get a counselor and have the kids go through the transitition that way. That is what I did.
