Skipping your sister's wedding is a pretty drastic thing to do — but what if it's because your sister's dating your ex?
And what if she started dating him while you two were together?
A woman in this situation recently asked Reddit for advice. She's caught between wanting to set boundaries against the ex who hurt her, and wanting to make her family happy. Here's what she said.
My sister is marrying my ex-bf who she started dating while I was still in a relationship with him. Yes, I know my ex was a scumbag too, but honestly, it hurts more my own sister did this to me over his cheating lying ass.
At first, everyone was on my side and didn't urge for reconciliation and respected my desire to be nowhere near those two.
But now they're getting married (and my sister is expecting her first kid/my parent's first grandkid) my mum is saying I should let the past stay in the past, and move on. That future niece deserves to have a loving extended family and a loving aunt.
