Darling Husband has a lot of siblings. He is not close to his brothers but is very close to 2 sisters. They are around the same age, grew up together. One of them lives internationally so we don’t see her often but when we do see her I can expect to be ignored for few days but it’s ok with me since he only sees her once every few years but they text everyday and the 2nd sister who lives close to us even I’m good friends with so we all always have a great time together .

 

as far as the family pictures go I think your it’s something your bf needs to discuss with them. Since you guys are not engaged or married yet they don’t have to include you but dh sister insisted on including me in her wedding photos and we had only been dating for a year and I felt weird about it but he wanted me in them also it’s not like I could say no without being rude.

you can join the Fitbit thing. Just ask his sister you want to join .u see her often enough lol

My Fiance doesn’t have any siblings, but I have two younger brothers and we are very close. Try to seem interested in things she is interested in and hopefully your relationship will grow. She may be a perceptive person and feel that you are annoyed by her relationship with her brother.

My brother and I are extremely close. We text often and probably talk once a day. Military brats so sometimes all we had was each other. My brother and I are two years apart and best friends. I’d be very upset if his significant other didn’t respect that relationship and tried to imply it was odd or annoying If it’s truly that we are just close and talk and hang out often. Learn to embrace it.

countrygirll :  Yes I see how that would hurt.  You should expect them to treat you as a daughter.  As their son’s wife, that’s truly what you are.  Sorry I can’t give you advice on how to handle this.  Have you made your feelings known to your husband?  Maybe he, nor his family, realize that it’s bothering you such.

I guess I’m lucky, for now.  My, then boyfriend, and his family took family photos over Christmas break (4 months before we got engaged).  They invited me to join them.  I took several pictures with just my boyfriend and several with the entire family.  They did take some without me and that’s fine too.  Now, though, I suspect it would be different since I’ll officially be part of the family next year.
