He certainly should be civil/polite to the new BF. Was he close with his sister’s ex? If so, I would imagine this is a shock to him and after 6 years, might feel like a huge loss, especially if he is unsure if he can continue a relationship with her ex. Have you checked in with him to see how he is processing the end of the relationship?

It’s not Adam’s fault. Does he still hang out with Luke?

Well….it’s a lot to process in such a short time, but the family needs to try to be as supportive as possible (within reason).

I would imagine that this “new” person *may* have been in the picture for longer than may be realized.  Otherwise, she’s moving pretty fast and I’d maybe try to have a gentle conversation with her about not jumping into a new serious relationship too quickly.

Definitly be civil.  I dated my ex for five years and when we broke up I was dating his best friend in less than two weeks and, due to circumstances surrounding my family and the break up, I had also moved in.  Trust me, everyone was a bit judgemental at our situation and it sucked.  I just trying to find my happy, but everyone else was too busy making gossip.  Five years later now that guy is my FI and we’re happy as can be. Breaking up with my abusive ex was the best choice I’ve ever made even if the time line I chose did seem unconventional.  

Also, this new guy may not be so new.  Not saying she was cheating, but my FI and I moved fast at first because we had been in love with one another for quite awhile, never acting on it.  He had been one of my best friends before I started dating the ex, so it seemed natural to us.
