What a shame πŸ™ I’m so sorry. Do you have other bridesmaids who can step up and be supportive of you on the wedding day? Is there any chance things might turn around between your sis and the rest of the family? πŸ™

That is sad πŸ™ I noticed your wedding is still a ways away. Perhaps things will calm down before then?

Hope the door doesn’t hit her in the ass on the way out.  That’s a low class move, regardless of circumstance and I’m sorry.

Hopefully your sister will come to the realization that she’s acting inappropriately and apologize for her behavior. You still have some time until your wedding so hopefully it all works out one way or another.

All I can say is

(a) I am sorry that this is impacting your beloved Wedding Plans


(b) Divorce sucks.  And something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.

As someone who has gone thru it… unfortunately I have to say… one has to live it to believe how incredibly insidious, horrid and devastating it can be.  AND YES it does make some otherwise sane people “lose it” and become crazy folks.  If she is a Mom with young children the situation can only be that much more horrific for her.

HUG HER, LOVE HER… try to understand.  Her WHOLE WORLD is on the rocks…

Your Wedding is important to you… for sure, but it is a joyous celebration of LOVE (which in her situation only makes things for her look all that more bleaker).

It is one thing to find the LOVE of your life… YOU.

And something completely different to lose that relationship… HER (no matter the circumstance)

Imagine every single hope and dream that you have going into your marriage being shattered… the results are devastating !!

The grief overwhelming.

As nuts as she is appearing to you, I’d give her a HALL PASS on this one.  It will take time, but she’ll come around eventually and be the Sis you truly can connect with… but it may take a long long time (took me over 5 years, and under 10 to get back to my old self post-Divorce… and I had no kids in tow).

Hope this helps,
