Long time lurker, first time poster. You guys seem like a good community, so any advice and feedback would be appreciated.
Here is my long story:
My brother brought his now wife around for the first time back in May of 2011. She seemed ok, and she made little effort to open up to me, but I chalked it up to her maybe just being shy. Shortly after, he proposed. Since the engagement, I tried to take the reigns and open up to her. I am a hair stylist, so I opened the salon on an off day (Sunday), brought a bottle of her favorite wine, and did her hair for practically free. The whole time she told “embarrasing” stories about my brother and something just came off as…. fake. From that point on, I just felt that something wasn’t quite right with her.
She did ask me to be in the wedding, and I wish I said no. She became a huge bridezilla- even asking my parent for thousands of dollars. Out of nowhere, she sent me a novel of rude and irrational texts. My brother came over the next day and apologized for her bad behavior. She never did, and still hasn’t apologized. Since that, I have definitely kept my distance, but I always have remain cordial.
They now have been married for 3 months, and we see them even less. If my brother comes over, it is at a really random time and with out her. He did come out for my birthday about a month ago, but it was with out her as well. He finally admitted that he was really frustrated with her and dropped the “divorce” word.
I guess this is more of a rant, but I hate seeing this happen to a loved one. I feel it in my bones this girl is sneaky and up to no good. I know all I can do is keep quite, and support my bro. However, with the holidays coming up, I will have to see her more, and I would love nothing better than to clock that fake smile off her face….!
Any advice on how to deal, or anyone else in a similar situation?
