Does divorce end a family

Divorce only ends the ‘nuclear’ family, the group made up of mother, father, and their children. Most families include many more people such as grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins or even half siblings and step parents. Divorce does not change these relationships except by deliberate actions by the divorcing couple. The degree to which a family is ‘ended’ is up to the individuals involved and children of divorce have the ability to maintain family relationships with other family members, even if they have to wait until they’ve reached their own majority.
