Should I text?

My sister and I aren't close. Getting that out there.

I just saw on Facebook that she is no longer "married", she's now "single". I want to ask her if she's okay. Yay or nay?

ETA: I've made all attempts in the past to contact her, and they typically go ignored. I haven't even gotten a "Happy Birthday" out of her. She's 19 and very immature. She's even stopped talking to our dad. I don't want to get pushed away. I say text because we've never talked on the phone and I figured texting would be a quicker way to find out if she would even bother responding.

Would you want her in your life now or are you just curious to know how it ended?

Yes - she's still your sister.  Even if you aren't close, it doesn't hurt to reach out.

 yay. I wasn't close with my sister until she went through a divorce. She will probably appreciate you being there for her.

I think that's a good way to start out a conversation, since you're distant.  Maybe ask if she's okay and if it would be okay if you called her.

 It honestly depends on your relationship; I don't know anything about her, you, or how you two get along. I don't know enough about the situation to tell you one way or another.

That being said; my sister and I aren't close either, but if she were going through a rough time I would definitely call and check in.
