Well, my husband passed away a few years ago so the situation is a little different, but I still refer to them as my nieces and nephews.
My parents still call my cousins their nieces and nephews and my cousins still call them their aunt/uncles and they've been divored for about 13 years.
They are still my nieces and nephews
Did you include the nieces and nephews in the divorce decree?
I still refer to my ex's niece and nephew as mine. However his sister tells them I'm still their Aunt. So no not weird.
I still refer to them as my nieces and nephew, and they're still a very big part of my life. They also have a great bond w/ my children that are not related to them (they're only DS1's cousins). My other kids also refer to their mom as "Auntie".
