While I don’t feel like you necessarily need to be married to be a good parent, this is just completely irresponsible. Unfortunately, it sounds like your family is enabling her in a big way.

@kaylaann:  It may be that having the miscarriage gave her a wake up call. If your worried about her intentions in regards to childcare after the baby is born talk to her about it. Your not going to know otherwise and if you want to help her that’s the only real way to do it. It’s also really not about you and your wedding…

Does your mother know about this? Like a PP said, it sounds like your family (esp you mother) are enabling her. If I were the mother I would make it clear that I would not look after another child.

As long as your mom keeps picking up her messes, your sister will keep acting like a teenager. You’re never going to convince her otherwise. Might be better to show your mom the toll it is taking on the family and see if you can help her stop being your sister’s safety net.

I think it hurts you what she does to herself — because you love her.

But the truth hurts too. You probably could tell her that you are happy for her but it would be a difficult situation for the kid to be tangled in a potential custody battle; etc. If I were you, I would’ve been like, “You ever realize the pain you cause mom?” (etc etc)

@kaylaann:  I’m really sorry that you’re in that situation then. I know it’s hard seeing your Mum tied back down again in a time when she should be able to think about doing things for herself rather than looking after a chlld. The poor kid must be confused too.Would your Mum speak to her sister or does she not do confrontation?
