@ChefChicka:  The best thing you can do is to be there and be supportive for your brother. Let him know you support and love him no matter what he decides to do, and that some times people make mistakes–even huge ones like marriage.

And be polite but distant if you have to deal with her at family events.

I would try to focus on what you want out of this situation? I’m going to take a wild guess here and guess that what you want is for your brother to come out of this in the best shape possible? That right? So waht can your do to make that happen? Be supportive of him. And at least cordial to her. Because extra drama from you will undoubtable add to your brother’s stress. You don’t have to tell her you love her and can’t wait to be BFFs. But drama doesn’t help anyone. Again. Think about what you really want. Act to try to make that possible.
