Well – you’re right, you can’t ask them not to be friends with him.. but to me, it seems like it has a LOT to do with age and maturity. Everyone in this situation (especially your little brother) seem really young, and so they may not realize/care what it’s doing to you. Not to say they’re jerks or anything – they just may not be old enough/mature enough to care yet. 

I say this because my brothers didn’t give a CRAP about me or my feelings (or anyone else’s really) until just recently, and they’re finally beginning to resemble adults. I don’t think that they didn’t love me or anything, but I do think that at younger ages, they were too self absorbed to see how their decisions affected others.

I don’t have much advice for you, sadly, except to talk to them about how you feel; they just may not take it in an adult manner.

They may also know that you cheated on your EX-H twice and feel like you are the bad guy in the whole scenario. If they generally like him as a person and feel like you did the dirty on him then that could be the reason that they have remained friends and don’t have your back. I can understand why they might feel like that.
