    He’s single. Your sister admitted to that much over Thanksgiving. That’s the reason.

    Oh for God’s sake, he’s married with a child. I would think changing his FB status is the last thing on his mind.

    @Nika2013:  About 5 years ago my long-time boyfriend broke up with me for another girl (it was later rumored that he got her pregnant). I cut all contact with him for a few months, even though he would still attempt to contact me. Eventually we did start speaking again and he convinced me that he was sorry. It seemed as if we were getting back together, but when I went to update my facebook, he never accepted it. He was actually just stringing me along for the sex. A few weeks later I saw that he was in a relationship with someone else. I think this guy probably is trying to keep his options open and so he doesn’t want to acknowledge his relationship with your SO’s sister in a public way.

    I get on facebook about once every three months. So maybe he just hasn’t seen it. Or doesn’t want to publish his relationship status on facebook.  I wouldn’t worry about it. But I’m, obviously, not a big facebook person!

    @Nika2013:  I’d say there’s probably a reason, but I’d also give him the benefit of the doubt (until he proved otherwise).  He’s technically still married, and there’s a child, so I’m assuming he’s in the middle of a divorce?  Custody battles are terrible things, if he shows the world he’s with another woman before the divorce is over it could mean bad things for him as far as the divorce paperwork goes, people can get really nasty and that might all his future ex-wife needs to completely drain him financially and take the child forever.

    Me personally, I’d tell my sister she looks really ridiculous posting that on Facebook.  But we have the dynamic that would allow us to have that conversation…  Don’t know how your sister would take it.

    @Nika2013:  Sounds like they have different opinions on their relationship status, and she’s being hopeful it is something more than it is.

    If he’s on facebook all the time, and won’t change it, then he’s definitely avoiding it.
