(Closed) Sibling Jealousy

DH and I had been together 5 years and I’d recently told him I wanted to marry him (not just live in sin forever). I was waiting for him to tell me whether he felt the same. About a month afterwards I got a text message from my mother telling me my younger sister had just gotten engaged.

I felt like throwing up.

I won’t lie, I was *so* jealous. They were *so* young, and I hated that her SO was so sure he wanted to marry her while mine wasn’t.

These feelings lasted a day, maybe. Luckily my sister was travelling at the time and I didn’t have to see her while I was feeling that way. By the time I did see her, I’d gotten over those feelings mostly and was just excited and happy for her. Hopefully your sister is the same!

There is a little of this going on in my family.  I try to ignore it as much as possible.  Hopefully they’ll get married one day and we can be mean to them:)

She will come around.  I know there is a bit of sibling jealousy in my family, but mostly coming from me.  I am the youngest, and only 18 months behind my sister.  Basically, by the time things for me roll around, my parents and everyone in my family is tired of it.  I am really excited about planning my wedding, and since this is the third wedding in the family, my parents are OVER IT.  It can really hurt sometimes, but I just try not to dwell on it. 

Give her some time to come around, she is probably dealing with issues with herself.  It’s hard to see younger siblings get married when your not.

My sister didn’t show up at my wedding. She was my maid of honor. No show, no call – 7 months later, no explanation. Haven’t heard from her. I know that shortly after I got engaged, she became obsessed with the idea of becoming engaged. She was seeing this guy and kept saying he was going to propose soon. Then we all went out to dinner and he didn’t know anything about her at all and she was all moon eyes over him. A few weeks later, he didn’t show up for her birthday dinner because he forgot. After that, she basically disappeared. I’ve heard that she’s engaged now, to someone else entirely. It kills me.
