Lol, I hear you. I literally have the worst sister-in-law in the world.
The hilariously sad Smack-a-roos include (we just laugh about it now):
– Asked me right before we became engaged what date I thought our wedding would be…and then immediately booked her wedding for that date a few weeks later
– Ruined our engagment because she was afraid it was nicer than hers
– Would always make comments about my weight (I’m not even close to be fat…but has said “skinny girls on the dance floor only!”…ahahaha) because she has been dealing with an eating disorder all her life. Sorry, stunting your growth to look like an 80 lb. little girl is not attractive to me. Nor is it something to be proud of. My man prefers a woman that is healthy, strong, confident in her body and sexy in all the right places, as a real woman should be.
– Claimed my solitare engagment ring was a “copy” of hers (umm all solitares on a plain band are just that…solitares…and sorry I haven’t even seen or care to see your ring)
– Spread untrue rumors to his family…which at first were hurtful, but then everyone realized that she was batsh*t crazy
– Threw a temper tantrum at another wedding that everyone heard. Ruined their rehearsal dinner, according to his family.
– Literally tried to run her then fiance off the road (everyone in the family found out about it)…and when she found out that he was going to leave her…oops, what do you know she’s pregnant before the wedding! (There was also also the family’s idea to try to rescue her now husband before their wedding, he was going to sneak out and leave her according to their family, but had to stay when she turned up pregnant.)
What it comes down to is jealousy. Some people thrive off the downfall of others. If they want something of yours, they show their true colors. What we have learned from her manipulative ways, is to keep her out of sight. Our whole family agreed that they only attended her wedding out of obligation and didn’t really want to be there.
The best thing to do is recognize when someone is a jealous and unhappy person that it often stems from mental illness. We have learned that people like that will only ultimately let on who they really are…
