- Wedding: February 2011
This doesn’t sound like the classiest way to go about it but I don’t think it’s fair to judge your sister. It’s hard to tell what goes on behind closed doors & what drove her to make that decision. Maybe she’s being selfish but she could have some legitimate reasons for her actions.
@MrsRugbee: I appreciate your advice, I am certainly not one to bash my sister. As I said, you are right I do not know what went on behind closed doors. I do know that she verbally abused him, that she didn’t come home till all hours of the night for at least the past year now. She works in a pub, he trusted her.
She sits in her bedroom and doesn’t really speak with her family, he is always playing with the kids. She never went to his family functions, and if she did it was after a fight.
She is selfish and especially now, thinking about herself more than her kids.
I agree that no one really knows what goes on behind closed doors. I do think it is way too soon to bring someone new into the picture. The children are going to need time to get used to things. Unfortunately the damage is done, the best thing to do is be there if the kids need you. Maybe offer to take them out and do something. Let them know you will still be around. Children can take things personally. In order to find out how they are doing some one on one time might be a good idea.
@StormyRose: I agree with you as well, and have always been extremely close with my niece and nephew and will continue to do so. We always try to do solo sleepover’s with them at least once every 2 months!
I am devastated and sad for the kids with the whole situation…
I thought I was at my breaking point a month ago, now I am ready to check out!
You can’t control other peoples choices, and you can’t change them, best thing you can so is spend some extra time with the kids.
