I’m simple and to the point. 

I would tell her to butt out.  

Your sister isn’t bothered because she’s fulfilled right now by her goals.

I would tell my mom that my relationship with my sister is noneoff her business.

@axeyourmakeupkit:  This. The level of intrusion that your mother is engaging in is intense. If you hadn’t said your ages, I would have guessed that you and your sister just went off to college and she was feeling empty nested.

yea your mom needs to step back a bit and stop micro-managing.  you and your sister are grown women, you’ll figure it out.

It’s the Irish mammy syndrome! My partner is Irish and I’m French, and I was so surprised when I first met my Future Mother-In-Law. One not helpful suggestions would be to run away, but as she’s YOUR mother, I don’t think that’s an option… The way my partner deals with her is by listening to her, but not reacting. of course, then I have to listen to a rant, but at least, there isn’t more drama with the mother. Which brings me to my second point: if your mum doesn’t get her dose of drama from you and your sister, will she try and create it another way?

Maybe your sister is afraid that as she’s single, and you’re building a new life with your partner, she’ll end up being “stuck” with your mum?

Good luck anyway, and you’ll be fine!!
