Re: Invasive Sister-in-Law
      10/06/10 09:11 PM

What I mean by "maintaining my composure" is that I have been, but find myself bursting into tears as soon as I am alone...and I'm afraid I'm going to betray my feelings at some point. It should be noted that my sister-in-law has two adult children who she barely speaks to or sees. Additionally, she has stepped between (almost literally) my ex and me while we were still separated, perhaps to "protect" her brother in some misguided way. As far as I'm concerned, our divorce was OUR business, not hers. Against my wishes, he allowed her to be with us when I wanted to be alone on long trips to see our daughter at college games, in an effort to have time to talk things out with him. I resent her for these reasons, and also her presence at ALL of my daughter's collegiate events. It should also be noted that she and my daughter were not particularly close when I was married to her brother. I have always been there for my daughter. I feel sidelined by them...just as I always had during my marriage. The three of them have very similar personalities: stubborn, passive-aggressive. I can divorce my husband and his sister, but I love my daughter and want to be close to her. I just need to know if/how I should confront my ex-sister-in-law for what I feel is overstepping her boundaries, or, as you have said, continue to take the high road and hope my daughter sees it for what it is. I suppose time will be on my side...
