Woman's sister loses her children and she hosts her for 3 years: when she asks her to leave, a quarrel breaks out
The nature of relationships between sisters is often unique and, sometimes, can be somewhat complicated: sisters almost always love each other, but conflict and tensions can arise. An example of this is the story of a young woman - let's call her Nicky - who decided to open the doors of her own home to her sister and brother-in-law after the couple experienced a terrible trauma: unfortunately, they lost their three young children in a terrible car accident.
The couple had two daughters aged 8 and 6 and a son aged 3. "My sister and I are 10 months apart and have always been very close. At the time my sister's children were killed, I was living alone in a three bedroom house and I opened my home to my sister and her husband. Obviously, neither of them were able to go back to work and we needed each other. I didn't want them to worry about money or losing their home after what happened," Nicky explained.
So, over the years, Nicky supported the couple emotionally and financially. Both refused to go to therapy and are unemployed. "I have a good job, but it's not easy to manage the situation and I didn't expect it would go on for so long," Nicky said. Later, Nicky met her current boyfriend and they are now about to get married. Nicky has diplomatically tried to let her sister know she needs to move out now, but apparently, her sister cannot take a hint.
"Last weekend, I made it clear to my sister that I wanted my house back and she and her husband need to move out. She got angry and ran to our mother, who called me selfish for not being more considerate. Since then, both my sister and brother-in-law don't talk to me anymore," Nicky stated. Most users who read Nicky's story sided with her and supported her actions.
Later, Nicky updated her post, explaining that her sister finally understood that she had a problem: "she told me she knew she needed help but didn't want to accept it. Now, she says she is willing to go to therapy. I haven't talked to her again about moving out, but her admitting she needs help is a huge step forward, so I'm not going to push it for now," Nicky wrote.
