Boyfriend &amp  his sister
Hi Doc

I''''m here for some advice. I really need some, no idea what to do about this.

I HATE my boyfriend''''s sister (and her husband). She''''s the most selfish person I''''ve ever come across in my entire life. She talks about herself all the time, takes no-one in consideration, moans about everything and treats my boyfriend asif he''''s an idiot and that she''''s so much better than him. Then she gossips about everyone all the time - so whenever she talks to me, I don''''t want to say anything because she''''s just going to freaking gossip about me later on.

I''''ve expressed my feelings to my Boyfriend and he always just shruged it off. Recently he suddenly just had this giant fight with me about it. He kind of made it clear that he''''d pick her above me, so if I don''''t cut the s**t, It''''d be over between us.

I''''m not sure how I feel about this. Should I just shut my mouth in the future, and not say anything about her to him? On the other hand, we''''ve been dating for almost 4 years, and if he chooses his sister above me, it''''s a GIANT problem for me. How can I continue as if everything is fine, when I know I''''m clearly not that important to him?

Thank you

She sounds like a thoroughly unpleasant person. If he is so cowed by her, or for whatever reason, will not deal with her ugliness and bad manners to wards others, then, as apparently they come as a package deal, you may need to reconsider remaining a close friend of his. Could you really shit your moth and pretend to like this harpy for the next 40 years ? Life's to short to choose to remain in contact with horrible people
