One of my siblings ended things with their SO last night, after dating for about 2 years. She told me she loves him but he just wasn’t the right one. It makes me so sad for them both. My wedding was less than 2 weeks ago and thinking that she probably has had these feelings for a while yet put on a brave face for my wedding (as MOH) makes me feel so sad. He has become pretty close with our family (heck we all went out for dinner saturday night!) and his entire family was at my wedding as well.
I haven’t been in this situation before (married my high school sweetheart) so I can’t fully relate to how she must be feeling. She is so independent and I’m really proud of her for knowing what she wants and always putting herself first, I just wish I could do something to comfort her. She told me she isn’t ready to talk about it yet. 🙁

Do you live nearby? Take her for a mani/pedi and/or out to lunch. Let her know you can avoid the subject or talk about it, it’s up to her. You just want to spend some quality sister time with her. I would spend the time talking about the good stuff in her life right now.

@beachbride1216: That’s a good idea, we do live really close to each other. I just want to hang with her until she is ready to talk.
I logged on facebook this morning and they have both deleted any pictures of them together 🙁 I feel like I am taking this worse than she is! She isn’t the type to date around so I know this isn’t a hasty decision, but it just sucks to see something that we all thought was so good come to an end.

ugh this is the worst feeling! I totally sympathize with her. When I broke up with my college boyfriend I wanted to throw myself out the window — it suuuuucks!

Sometimes when people close to you break up, you feel it too! Happened to me when my husbands brother and his wife broke up because she is one of my best friends so i felt so stuck in the middle. I have never had a break up either- married my high school sweetheart.
Just try and be there for her- maybe not get her to hang out with you and your husband cause she may feel like the third wheel. Go see a really good comedy movie- not romantic comedy haha. Or a musical show- they always cheer you up.
When she is ready to talk to her- listen. sometimes all she needs is someone to listen to how she feels
