People get way too hung up on blood relations. Just because you dropped out the same crotch as someone doesn't mean you owe them anything. If the woman were say a good friend instead of your sister, would you still try to get to know her new happy family? Of course not.

That would be a kick-ass thanksgiving.

Wow, that's insane. If I were her, I'd cut ties with the lot of them and move to Europe.

She needs to adopt a kid who looks similar.  Dress it just like the niece.  Buy a house next door to the sister.  And then hire someone to be the child's other mother.  She must look similar to the ex-husband.  Then invite them all over for the holidays.
 
2012-11-27 01:39:50 PM  
She could probably get her ex back in the sack. Offer him anal and the video tape it. Mail it to your sister and your folks.

The other article, "My brother and his wife live in our soon to be home town and have generously offered me and my family a room until we find our own place. However, they have large nude portraits of themselves-one of my brother and another one of my SIL-hanging in the main hallway."



HA. I'm so going to do that.

had a shipmate one time who told me he was married to his ex-wife's sister (with kids) and the whole family was cool with it, including ex-wife & parents. He claimed he didn't get involved with his wife until years after the divorce.

Whole family was from Florida.

Q. Sister-in-Law's Hospitality: My brother and sister-in-law invited our family and four other families over for Thanksgiving this weekend. We all brought side dishes, wine, desserts, and drinks so that they only needed to cook the turkey. When the meal was done, my sister-in-law came up to me and asked me to make sure to leave a check before we left. I asked her what the check was for and she said it was for hosting the dinner. She said $100 per couple should cover it. I was floored. The turkey only cost about $30 and everyone else bought at least as much in side dishes and wine. She told me there are a lot of costs that guests just don't see. In order to avoid a scene, I wrote her a check. (I know at least one other family reluctantly paid her as well.) I asked my brother what that was about and he didn't know anything about it. $500 to cook a turkey and host a dinner seems a bit steep to me-what should we do?


Holy shiat that sister-in-law is a biatch.

And then subtracted the value of 1) the food brought by them, and 2) the entertainment of their company, coming to a...carry the 1, slide the Abacus... and yes.  The hosting sister owes everyone else $50 apiece.

I'm guessing that was her way of making sure nobody ever came to her house for Thanksgiving again.

It's pretty gross to have sex with someone your relative has been with. To me, that person becomes off limits, even in the realm of imagination.

My brother is a good guy, but I would never want to go where he'd been. It would feel too dirty.

But you'd still love the same parents. I'm not defending these people's actions, but family is not something so easily dismissed. Just like when you get a divorce, you're never completely out of each other's lives when you have kids. We are all tied to people in life, and some of them are people we don't like or even hate.
 
2012-11-27 03:46:26 PM  
I don't know how I"d feel in that situation.

But I'd be posting a lot of comments about "sloppy seconds" on dear sis's Facebook while I was figuring it out.

Wow, who needs enemies when you can have a family like that. And hey sis, he cheated on his wife with you, hope you keep his cock nice and warm, because he'll do it again at a drop of a hat.

So who do you owe anything to then? Nothing to nobody? fark all and let them rot? Not sure I agree there. If you can't trust your family not to destroy you, who can you trust?

Maybe this is a hold over from back when we would do anything to survive, I am thinking though that it is detrimental now.

Lots of people cheat. It takes a special kind of asshole to charge for Thanksgiving dinner with the family.
 
2012-11-27 03:55:21 PM  
The cheated on sister doesn't have to "accept" anything, she's an adult and her feelings are valid. She should completely sever ties with the sister and her new family.

Life is frustrating and imagine the husband's pain. He probably didn't want to hook up with her but when the moment happened, it happened and then it snowballed from there. I have a super hot sister-in-law that I would have a hard time not poking!!!

However, they have large nude portraits of themselves-one of my brother and another one of my SIL-hanging in the main hallway. They are not posing in any sexually suggestive way, but you see everything. Last time we visited my son was a toddler and the pictures weren't an issue. He is now 5 and I feel it's inappropriate for him to see nude portraits of his aunt and uncle. Is it rude if I ask them to take down the pictures? I'm all for giving kids age-appropriate sex ed, but I fear this is just too much too soon."

She shouldn't do anything to make the exhusband or sister feel better about themselves, but forgiveness may help her move on. It is a lot to ask for the level of betrayal that she experienced. Her parents should understand if she considers her sister forever dead. But not letting go and forgiving may be hurting her more than her sister.

Fark the ex, fark the sister and if my parents actually accepted it, fark them too. I'd be fine with them having my sister and the grand kid over for a visit. She's still their daughter, and they deserve to know their grand child. The ex can keep his butt at home, and until there was one heck of an apology I wouldn't be standing on the same street as my sister. There is too much hurt in the world for someone to betray their own sister like this.
