poppyfee :  Absolutely. and it’s often not a direct jealousy, but it ramps up the expectations/feelings of expectations for her. My cousins that are around my age (i have a lot of cousins and we’re close) all got married WELL before me and it made me feel more anxious about it. Even though I personally didn’t want to be married at all, it made it feel like it would make others judge me for it and put more pressure on me. And it’s true, when you’re older/in the same age group insensitive relatives will definitely pull the “so when is your turn!” card. Once everyone is used to it I bet everything will settle back into place. It’s just a period of adjustment and everyone getting their heads around it. Might also be an idea to tell your mother to lay off her, and that it’s putting a strain on your relationship. She may not realize she’s harming her daughters’ relationship rather than encouraging one of them.
