My younger sister casually mentioned under her breathe to me that she ‘wont be here anymore’ as of May 1. Apparently she is moving in with her Boyfriend or Best Friend and she hasn’t bothered to tell my parents yet.
I feel kinda bad for my parents, because I know my mom is going to be upset (probably not to my sister directly, but just in general). We’ve had a ton going on the last few weeks (happy and annoying) and this is just going to add more all at once.
The crazy part? My parents leave on vacation on May 1 for two weeks with my grandparents and some friends. My sister is planning on dropping them off at the airport at 6am that day, and then moving! I”m scared she’s not going to say anything, they’re just going to come home to find her gone!! Even if she does tell them RIGHT before the trip (AKA sometime in the next two weeks) she is going to ruin their trip, and my parents will be so upset that they aren’t even here to help her move, etc….
I know I should probably just stay out of it, but I feel bad knowing about it and not saying ANYTHING!

Admittedly it’s hard to tell how your parents will react without knowing them, but I think most parents would be pretty upset if their daughter sneakily moved out of home. I don’t think it’ll ruin their holiday if she said something before – maybe they’ll worry a little, but unless your sister is really young or her bf is absolutely horrible, I’d hope that they’d be happy that she’s showing some independence.
If you think your sister won’t tell them before she actually moves, you could give her a date – if she doesn’t tell your parents by that date, you will.

Wow, no matter how old she is that is not a very mature or considerate thing to do.
One thing we’ve learned with Future Sister-In-Law, though, it not to get too involved. It’s kind of like bashing your best friend’s boyfriend, you know? If they make up, than you’re the one who was too hard on him.

My sister is 21, so she is definitely OLD enough, but as you can tell she doesn’t always act in the most mature manner. She’s a full time student with very little income (and $0 expenses while living at home) and her Boyfriend or Best Friend really doesn’t seem responsible at all, so my parents are going to worry. But most of all I think they are going to be upset that they weren’t included in the process AT ALL. She’s literally just leaving. Add on the fact that I just got engaged 2 months ago, and have started making plans to move out next year (which my parents are obviously involved in), and its going to seem like a lot all at once.

Update: My mom found out (without me having to say anything, yay!). I guess my sister had made a few more suggestive comments to here, so my mom was finally like “What is happening, are you moving out? When?”, and my sister told her a few details. Now my mom is just on her to tell my dad (my mom doesn’t think she should have to tell him, she thinks it should be my sister’s responsibilitly).
SOOO… at least its off my shoulders now!
