Yikes! Sorry you’re going through this. I don’t have any real advice to add, but I just wanted to say that I don’t think you did anything wrong (by calling a couple of times), and I wouldn’t have cared if my sister called to see if I was pregnant so she could make appropriate wedding arrangements (I know you said this wasn’t your intent by calling, but I think in a normal sibling relationship, your sibling would understand that you need to make plans and you’re not trying to be insensitive). I also agree that your Brother-In-Law was out of line & I would be livid if my fiance talked to my sibling like that. Best of luck sorting all of this out!

ETA: I also would have no problem with my sister being present when I told my parents about a pregnancy. The more the merrier! The only thing I would ask is that she not tell them before me (which you didn’t).

Honestly, screw her. I wouldn’t invite her because I wouldn’t want her or her husband there…it would ruin my day.

Being famiyl doesn’t mean much in my book…shitty people are shitty people and I wouldn’t tolerate that behavior.

This is a little ridiculous! I would invite them but not make them part of the planning or anything. simply a guest… He should not have done that, no matter the circumstance! and your sister shouldnt have stood up for him either. If anybody, especially my fiance, were to yell at anybody in my family he would be in the wrong. Do you think he could be abusive… he sounds like he might be if not physically, mentally… was your sister like this before she was with him… or pregnant?
