I'm 35 and childfree. My sister is 33 and a mother of 3 kids - between 6 to 10 years of age, two boys and a girl . I have always had a strained relationship with my sister and usually avoid being around her kids, as I don't really like kids in general. Yesterday, my sister came over unannounced with her kids. She told me her brother in law had met with an accident and she and her hubby needed to go see him in the hospital. She said she needed me to watch her kids for the evening as our parents are out of town.
I told her to get a sitter, but she said she couldn't get one on such short notice. I refused again, telling her I had never babysat before and was looking forward to a quiet evening. First she told me she was just leaving them there. I told her I would call a child welfare committee and would report her for abandonment if she pulled something like that. She begged and pleaded and actually began to fake cry. As I didn't want to provide my neighbours with entertainment, I re... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have been dating a girl I'll call Jess for just over a year now. From the beginning I thought she was a great girl and we really clicked, so generally things have been going great between us. But as the title suggests I got a huge curveball recently.
A couple of weeks ago Jess and I were hanging out with her sister, who I'll call Anne who was visiting from out of town. I've hung out with Anne before and she also seems like a great girl who is actually very similar to her sister. Well we were drinking quite a bit that night and at one point Anne brought up a sexual encounter she recently had. While I'm not a prude, I didn't really feel comfortable talking about sex with my gf's sister so I gently tried to tell them to take the conversation back to PG territory.
At that point Anne kinda laughed and said it's not like talking about sex is a big deal between them given all they've been through. I thought she just meant that they were sisters, but Jess had a weird look on her face, so I... keep reading on reddit ➡
I know it sounds bad. It is bad.
This happened about three months ago. For context I live with my girlfriend in an apartment with one bedroom.
My sister was visiting from out of town. She said she'd sleep in the couch. I thought that would be that. We ate dinner, chatted, had a good time. When it was time to go to bed, however, i was feeling horny. I turned off the hall light and then opened the door to crawl onto out Queen size bed. I don't see shit. So I crawl in on my side, wait a few minutes, and then it happens.
I turn to my girlfriend. Her back is facing me. I grab her ass and whisper "I'd love to fuck you." those exact words.
Turns out my girlfriend is a good hostess. She had offered to sleep on my couch instead of my sister. I ended up grabbing my sister's ass and telling her id love to fuck her.
My sister turned to me. "Max?" I recognized her voice.
I hoped out of bed. I was mortified. I ran into the living room and, sure enough, there was my girlfriend. I ran bac... keep reading on reddit ➡
So my wife is paraplegic, she was when I first met her. It’s from an accident a long time ago, but she’s adapted well to it. I love her and she’s just as “useful” as someone who can walk.
My sister for some reason has never liked my wife. She’s always had some problem with her, whether she claims it’s attitude or something else. I’ve talked to my wife about it and she doesn’t know why, and I’ve talked to my sister about it and she’s never given me a straight answer on why she doesn’t like her. I had just accepted it until now, not everybody likes everyone else, and until now my sister hadn’t said anything rude about it.
Now my sister was a prostitute in college, and she claims she’s just “camming” now. She doesn’t have a job, she just does that. She told me because I found out accidentally once. She made me hide it to our family and claims she has a job at a company near us.

AITA for not giving my half sister my kidney?
Hello Reddit, this is a throwaway for obvious reasons and I am on mobile.
So I (14M) was born from an affair between my mom and my dad. She already had a (1yrF/my half-sister). My dad didn’t know my mom was married when they started hooking up but when she got pregnant her husband found out and left her.
My mom was going to abort me but my dad paid her a lot if money.
She signed over rights and was not part of my life financially or emotionally. She just birthed me. I don’t blame her or hold men/ women who leave accountable.
Everyone from her side know about me however they don’t care.
Well, my mom and her husband got back together for my half-sister and my dad ended up starting a business and earning about 8 figures yearly.
My mom contacted my dad saying she wanted to get to know me better. I was skeptical and not sure because I didn’t really think about her often, but I decided I would meet her. I met up with her... keep reading on reddit ➡
My sister and I live in the same city, but our parents moved to another country for retirement. They flew us out for their anniversary. Our parents buy all of us tickets on the same flight. My sister has two kids - a 6 month old and a 5 year old. She is currently separated from her husband so she would have to handle 2 children by herself on a 10 hour flight. Or so I thought.
She calls me up a week or so beforehand and asks me if I will be willing to help her take care of her kids on the flight, and something about taking shifts so we can both sleep. I tell her that I wasn't comfortable with that, but she says "nephew loves you so much" so we can work something out on the flight and hangs up.
I was pissed. I didn't sign up for mid flight babysitting. I called my airline office and asked if they had any business class seats available. They said yes, and I upgraded using a mix of points + money. The upgrade cost me $50 out of pocket, the rest covered by my frequent flyer miles and it... keep reading on reddit ➡
My sister and her boyfriend recently broke up because she’s pregnant and keeping it and he wants her to get an abortion. Apparently she doesn’t want to stay in his house anymore or he kicked her out(not entirely clear which), because she’s asking to stay with me.
Well I have a 2 bedroom apartment and my girlfriend and I sleep in separate rooms, so there’s no bedroom for her to stay in. I told her she would have to sleep on the couch and she said that would be “unacceptable” like she was making a hotel reservation.
I told her to fuck off and find another place to stay then and she got pissed and said she couldn’t believe that I wouldn’t sleep with my girlfriend for my own sister. That sentence is making me laugh now but I still told her to find somewhere else to go. My parents are now getting pissed at me because she has no where to go.
Edit: she’s like 2 months pregnant, the sofa isn’t going to kill her
My (20F) sister (30F) has two kids (5F and 7M) She recently divorced her husband and is temporarily staying with me because she has nowhere else to go. She could move in with our parents but for some reason, she decided to stay with me for a few days. Few days turned into months because of the pandemic and so, here we are.
I honestly don't mind. I love her, and I love the kids. What I can't stand is her behaviour. Bear with me. This is going to sound very bizarre.
My sister is very religious. She has a facebook group, whatsapp group and an instagram where she has about 5000 followers. She's probably also on reddit and many other social media.
Usually, she's nice and sweet, but lately, she's become somewhat crazy. She has these “sessions” with her kids every few days. These “sessions” last about half an hour. During these sessions, she teaches her kids about the LGBTQ community. Not good things, but she teaches them about how being gay is a sin and all of that.

I am 24 now and left home because i got a well paying job as a planner. Anyways 12 years ago ,i was a kid and my sister came out as gay, they beat her up to our horror,it was my dads doing and made her move out,she was 17 years old. They refused for me to speak to her and shunned her entirely from our lives. So i couldnt get any contact with her until recently where my one grand uncle took care of her then he sadly passed away. She then went into depression and drugs after getting kicked out and it went worse when he died. You see a cousin had managed to get ahold of her a few years back but told no one until i moved away and then met him at his place for drinks. I hunted the streets and everywhere until contacted everyone i knew and didnt know to speak with her. When i found her she hugged and cried ,we both did.

Ok so, first off I’m on mobile so forgive me for formatting.
When my sister was 1 year old, my parents didn’t want her in their bed anymore and she was eager to sleep in mine so my parents let her share a bed with me; I was 12 at the time.According to my parents I wouldn’t sleep by myself until I was 3 years old, so I figured that they would help me introducer her to sleep on her own when the time came.
Also, she already had her own room, with a crib that was I believe appropriate for 0-5 year olds. It was one of those cribs that you could rebuild into a proper bed. So basically, my parents had prepared in advance for my sister to learn.
However skip 5 years and my sister, now almost 7, is still sleeping in my bed. I am almost 18 and about to start uni in September. Many times during these last years, I wanted to sleep by myself since I feel uncomfortable being a teen, almost an adult, and still having to share a bed with her. I wanted a room for myself again where I could stay up l... keep reading on reddit ➡
A message to our users, both silent and vocal, questioning why we decided to go private, and wondering whether or not it was the right move:
We are completely aware that this sub is not where people are going for information/to show support for the Black community. By going private, we were telling people that instead of creating and posting memes for a day, they can use their time and energy to do something more productive donate money and show support for the Black community. It was also a display of solidarity for George Floyd and his family.
People said it was disruptive, but that’s just it. The point was to try and disrupt people's normal day. A lot of privileged people don’t even have to bat an eye at the protest, so if we can force them to notice by temporarily taking down a meme sub, then that’s great.
And don’t get us wrong, posting memes in solidarity would have been great to, and we encourage it now, but that would be missing the point of yesterday’s event. Giving resou... keep reading on reddit ➡
So, this is obviously a long story spanning our entire lives but I will try to condense it as best I can. Players are: Me (30f), my sis (34f), husband (39m), Neice (5f), and dad (80m)
My older sister has had trouble with drugs, alcohol, and the law our entire life. She has been bakeracted no less than 20 times since her 18th birthday and has actually technically died twice due to her decisions(she's back by the grace of the medical professionals treating her). My dad has constantly bailed her out on anything whether it be jail or missing rent payments because she spent the money on drugs.
My dad had cancer for the last decade. Despite my sister and him already living in the same apartment complex and my dad paying the entirety of her rent, my husband and I were essentially forced to move across our city 3 months before our wedding because Dad was starting chemo and needed extra help. My next 3 years were devoted to caring for dad. I lost 2 jobs due to the time I needed to take off to... keep reading on reddit ➡
So me and my husband have a 7yo daughter who is extremely curious about everything.
Me and husband wanted just a weekend out with just the two of us so we had his sister (17) babysit for the night while we went to the beach house for a date night.
It was so needed. Was really nice to be able to have sex while not exhausted from the day. We watched Lifetime movies, had sex, cuddled, binged Love is Blind, had more sex.
First time in 7 years we actually got to just be a couple again.
We called every night to make sure everything was alright at home and we got pretty enthusiastic yes from both of them and it seemed like daughter was having a fun time with her aunt.
Then we got back home. We thanked his sister for babysitting and gave her $500 for the weekend.
The next night our daughter asks us if she's ever going to have to see her aunt again and we laugh and ask why and she tells us "because she's mean to me."
So now we're wondering what the hell happened. I get she's 7 so I thi... keep reading on reddit ➡
I suddenly remembered this story today. I don’t think I have ever told this story to anyone before. So here goes.
This happened a few years ago when I was a pre-teen. During the summer, my family and I went back to our hometown to visit my grandparents. We were short on rooms so my sister and I shared the same room the entire summer. We had separate beds, but sometimes my sister would trade blankets with me because my blanket was thicker and warmer.
One day during the summer, I discovered porn. But instead of finishing the job when I watched it, I went to sleep that day without completing the experience. I woke up with wet spots on my bed and underwear the next day.
At the time, i was about 80% sure what came out of me wasn’t pee, so I went on google to figure out what happened. I learned that I had a wet dream. I washed my underwear and my bed sheets but for some reason I did not wash my blanket.
When I went back into my room, I saw my sister had switched blankets with me a... keep reading on reddit ➡
Basically what happened is read my sisters blog. It was sent to me by a friend of mine who was asking if one of the “characters” was me. Spoiler alert, it was me.
Its couple years old and really popular. She doesn’t use our family’s real names but they are very similar and use the same first letter. So think real names: Katy, Julia, Marissa and Brad then the fake names being: Kathy, June, Marnie and Bob.
It’s descriptive enough of our lives and what we do for work that my friend identified me from it.
Its mostly about her and her life but there is still a lot about us.
A year ago I had an abortion. It was during the lowest point in my life so far and only she and my husband knew about it. She swore to me that she would take the secret to her grave. Yeah, she dedicated a whole entry to it.
A couple months ago she and her husband got laid off due to world events. I run my own business that wasn’t really affected and I offered her a job there to help her out. She’s not qualified in m... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just for some background, my family is a bit larger. We are all pretty healthy people, but we are not naturally thin. Both of my parents are bigger, I’m a bit bigger, and growing up my sister was to.
Now my sister works hard to fight being a bigger. She eats like a rabbit, and does pretty crazy workouts. People tend to look up to her for keeping her weight down and “getting healthy” but from my perspective she is constantly stressing herself out to maintain this appearance with all of the running etc.
My daughter turned 14 a couple of months ago, and has been expressing distaste about her body for a while. She’s a bit chubby like myself. It makes me sad, but I’m trying to teach her to love herself for who she is. I know that my words haven’t gotten through to her, as she has been going to my sister for advice.

Long time lurker on the this sub first time poster. On mobile so sorry for any formatting issues.
I (34f) am soon getting custody of 3 of my sister's (31f) children. She had them removed from her custody a year ago in July, they are 5, 3, and 2. I myself have three kids 11, 5, and 3. Husband and I have been preparing to get them for about 6 months now including buying a 12 passenger van and we're a few weeks out from closing on a 5 bedroom house.
Husband and I do not think my sister will get her life together anytime soon, she and her husband have had a year to work through their parenting plan and all they've done in that year was 1 parenting class, no therapy, no UAs, nothing required by the state for them to regain custody. It seems she is more in love with her addictions than her children.

My sister (25f) and I (22f) grew up in the deep south, my dad is almost 400 lbs and my mom is close. I grew up as a fat kid however when I started college and moved to a very fitness friendly state (CO) I lost alot of weight. I started to care more about my looks. I became a personal trainer last year and got a rhinoplasty recently to fix my crooked humped nose. My sister decided to move up with me. My sister was not very approving of my weight loss nor was she happy I did alot to change my appereance. While we get along wonderfully most of the time we still have fights about her thinking I'm vain.

I'm the middle of three. I have a younger sister (25) and an older brother (30). I'm 27. My parents, over the years, saved up 30k to be split between my sister and I for when we eventually got married, which would be 15k each.
My sister got engaged before me, and they planned their wedding for April 2020. As you can imagine, this couldn't happen. They'd picked an all inclusive venue and spent the entire 15k. Unfortunately, their venue has been horrible, denied any refund. Wedding insurance doesn't cover pandemics and they're now going under anyway. The 15k is just...gone.
My sister now wants to elope, which my parents and other family are absolutely horrified by. She and her fiance say they can't afford to pay for a wedding themselves because of their job situations. The only thing she has from the first wedding that she could take to a second is her wedding dress, which would still need to be altered.

My (21f) mom (53) met my dad (54) in college. My dad comes from old family money, but my mom's family was very middle-class. But when my sister (24) and I were growing up, my mom acted like she had always been upper class, and is very snobbish. I remember how we would go to dinner with her siblings and she would insist on choosing the restaurant to make sure it was "up to her standards" make a big show of paying the bill, and then would shit-talk her siblings and their spouses/kids the whole way home, making fun of their clothes, cars, jobs, you name it. She has always placed importance on whoever was wealthiest/had the "best" family, and wouldn't let my sister and I hang out with kids after school who weren't up to her "standards." It's made our relationship a little strained, especially since she obsesses about these things today, but she's my mom and I love her.

shes 23f im 18F. Grandma died 8 years ago, and she left more than enough money to pay for all her grandkid's colleges educations with a few stipulations: dont get arrested, do drugs, be a drunk, get pregnant / get someone else pregnant. The money was put into accounts in the parents names since we were all kids then.
In sophomore year my sister got pregnant. Shit hit the fan panicking about college, the baby daddy left & she hasnt tried to find him/get child support, & the stress from that caused a hard complicated pregnancy. both are ok.
Mom * dad still let her go to college as long as she didnt have another and maintained a 3.5 gpa. which she did. She graduated last December with about 2 grand in debt, I figured her money must have been used to help raise her kid and pay for her pregnancy the past 2.5 years so she had to get a bit of a loan. which seemed understandable.

me(24f) and my sister(26f), I’ll call her Red, don’t have the best relationship. Red has always had issues with relationships and them not lasting long while I’ve been in a lot of really long relationships. She has purposefully ruined a few of mine and even tried to get one of my past boyfriends to hookup with her. my sister moved back home because of quarantine making her get fired and me + my fiancé moved back for the time being since we just ended our last lease and are looking for a home. when we moved in I brought my very expensive wedding dress and put it in MY closet all the way in the back so no one had a reason to be near it.
Every now and then my sister asks to borrow a piece of clothing or some shoes and I almost always say yes since I don’t care that much and I thought maybe it would help our relationship a bit.

So my(25m) sister(19f) is staying with me during quarantine because I live in her college city and our mom is across the country. I live in a two bedroom apartment, but the second bedroom I had been using as a game room/office.
Our mom sent her some money for a bed when she moved in, but my sister spent it on a new computer. Since then she’s been sleeping in a sleeping bag on the floor. For about a month now she’s been whining that it’s uncomfortable and I’d just been ignoring her. Apparently she texted my girlfriend about it because when I talked to her she said it’s “inhumane” that I’m making her sleep on the floor and I should buy a cheap bed for her.
I don’t see why I should have to since she can move back with my mom, or sell her computer and buy a bed. She was given money, it’s not like she didn’t have a chance.
I (22f) have an older sister (25f). My sister is very sensitive about everything. When we were young, if I made the smallest comment like "I prefer pink over blue" it would make her cry because she thought I was aiming at her by saying it. My parents would always ask me to apologise to her since she's sensitive and I'm "emotionally stronger" than her.
My parents never controlled my sister's diet growing up, letting her have what she wants since they found it too difficult to control her.
I was skinny as a stick when I was a kid, so even though my family has a long history of thyroid disease my parents didn't think there was an issue with me. However, my sister has been overweight the majority of her life, so my parents thought she'd be the one with the thyroid issues. They took us to an endocrinologist when I was 10. I got a diagnosis for Hashimoto's Thyroiditis while my sister didn't, and instead got told to exercise and watch her diet. I got hypothyroidism due to Hashimoto's, and... keep reading on reddit ➡
The problem needs some backstory, so I'll start with saying my sister and brother are 7 and 8 years older than me, respectively. Growing up, they never outright excluded me, but it was clear that I was a tacked on addition to what they considered an already complete family. I was definitely an "oops" baby, my mother was much older when she had me. My siblings, being only a year and a half apart, are extremely close and always have been. Even when they did play with me or pay me any attention, it was always sort of "time that we have to spend time with this relative" whereas their own hanging out was natural, they just happily spent time together, if that makes sense.
It went this way for our whole childhood. Even when I tried to bond in a sisterly way with my sister, since it was clearly a lost cause with my brother, she always kind of treated me like the little sister of a friend she had. Polite, but with one foot into the next activity. I even overheard her complaining to my paren... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm a widower with an 8-year-old son. His teacher is new in our town (she only arrived last September) and lives in our block, we're practically next-door neighbors. Like, if we're out on our balconies we can see each other and talk. She obviously knew no one here, so over these past few months and especially during the lockdown, we grew kinda close. We had a bit of a moment the other day, I asked her out, she said yes. But we both decided to wait until the school year was over.
I called my sister to tell her and she called me an ass. She said that I shouldn't be doing that to my son, because it's not uncommon for boys his age to develop crushes to their teacher and that I don't want to make things complicated for him.
I told her that she doesn't know what she's talking about cause I was sure my son couldn't care less since he already has a crush on a classmate of his. And also I wasn't asking for her advice, I was just calling her with some good news.

I (17f) am a twin. My sister and I are basically chalk and cheese, we don't get on too well and we have separate friend groups and interests. It's never been anything major, we're just different people with very different personalities and after being forced to act like typical bff twins for so long, we squabble more than we get on with each other.
One of the only major fights we've had is that my sister befriended a group of girls who teased me for years. I've always had a more alternative style and often got bullied for being 'emo' and whatever. Because of this, my parents have always expressed that they love that I'm 'different' and 'unique' even though I don't really think I am - despite having a weird style I'm still a basic white girl who loves dogs, Starbucks, shopping, etc.
I think that my parents' insisting that I'm unique for years made her feel left out, as my sister has always fit in and never struggled to make friends with anyone and everyone. This has made her adopt a... keep reading on reddit ➡
My half sister has a weird obsession with me. She stalks me on my social media profile and acts like a deranged ex. I'm pretty popular on Instagram, where I also post my art, so making it private is not an option.
She is 17, and I haven't seen her in years. The last time I saw her, she was 12 and it was at my grandfather's funeral.
My biological father had an affair with one of my mum's friends when she was dying. It was sick and my poor mum found out about it 5 days before she passed away. The other woman was already pregnant with my half sister.
I was 15 and old enough to know what that meant. I refused to live with my dad (courts allowed it) and started living with my maternal grandparents. My 2 older siblings were in college and they haven't talked to him in years.
We chose to keep them out of my life and we like it that way.

When I was 14 and my oldest sister, Sara, was 22 we found out that she was pregnant with Paul, her boyfriend of 4 years. They immediately got engaged and they were really happy. For a time. Sara had a horrible pregnancy, about 16-18 weeks in the "wonder of creating a human life" evaporated within her. She developed hyperemesis (which if you don't know is really bad morning sickness), she was constantly in pain, she developed gestational diabetes, and just all around hated the experience. Around this time Paul, the then-fiance, started getting sick of the complaining. I believe the argument was "your body is built to do this, it can't be... keep reading on reddit ➡
My sister is in her third trimester of pregnancy, and she's about ready to pop any day now. We're all excited about her new baby. Ever since the pregnancy began, my sister and BIL have kept their name choice a secret from everyone, even their closest friends and family. My sister and I are pretty close (we can be dicks to each other every now and then, but at the end of the day we'd still take a bullet for each other), so last night she decided to share her baby name with me.
The name is Portabella (and yes, she did give me permission to share it here). Like the mushroom. At first I thought she was joking, but then she started saying how we could just call the kid Bella for short. There's obviously nothing wrong with Bella, but I think naming your kid after a mushroom is weird. I told my sister that she can name her baby whatever she wants as long as BIL is on board, but she did not take this well.

This is going to be long. I'm warning you. I'm angry. I'm frustrated and I'm shaking. I need to write it down and hear some advice.
My sis is just so creepy towards my bf. I can't take it anymore. She was really spoiled by my parents when she was young because she was their first child. She always WANTS everything and when we were little, she always used to steal my toys/books/clothes etc. I was never allowed to touch any of her things but she constantly stole my stuff and was always rude to me. My mom for some reason has always preferred her over me and thus, most of the time, I was told to let it go.
Due to this, I have lots of resentment towards her and I don't really like her. I'm honestly sick of her behaviour, and I just want some peace and quiet in my house.

So I wasn't expecting to make an update post, because I honestly wasn't expecting there to be an update to this. Unfortunately, I'm wrong.
I gave my oldest two weeks to really think about whether he wanted to talk to my sister or not. I figured that the decision he made at first might have been made out of anger, so I wanted to give him time to make such an important decision.
Ultimately, he decided that he did actually want to talk to her. I have to admit I was a little bit surprised, but we set up a zoom call between them anyway (of course with me supervising). Right before the zoom call he admitted to me that he wanted to talk to her, "Just to see if she'll say sorry,".
She did not say sorry.
Actually she opened the call with, "Hello! It's been so long! I... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hello! I wanted to draw Star Guardian Lux and Jinx in memory of my older sister. She was a Lux main and at the time I was a Jinx main. We would do Star Guardian bot almost every game. She used to stream too and I used to join her for it. She was actually getting noticed and could probably have made it as a streamer. She made almost 1000 followers in about a month or two of doing Twitch. Unfortunately, she never made it to 1000. It's been a little over 3 years since my older sister committed suicide. She died the day after her birthday.

I don't really stream anymore after she died because it's been too hard for me to. I am still working at getting better at art so I'm sorry that this isn't the best. I hope the image brought you some happiness even with the backstory. I hope you all stay safe during these times :)

I know how the title sounds!
I’ve been with my husband since I was 17 and he was 20, his sister is 4 years younger than him.
3 years into our relationship we got married, I’m 28 now.
I gave birth 8 months ago and I’m currently 6months pregnant with our second.
Two years ago my husbands sister lost her flat, she had a 2 year old so I of course agreed to let her stay with us- rent for her is £200 a month (which barely covers her food) and we specified she would have to tidy up after herself and her child because my husband and I both work full time.
I’ve been off for a while now, I’m still working from home though but no longer go into the office and while his sister has never been the tidiest (she did the bare minimum) she now does absolutely nothing apart from making a mess.
My husband helps out sometimes but, bless his heart, he can burn water and he has no back bone meaning despite only having one child at the moment I’m tidying up after two, three if you count his sister.

So my sister had a small informal wedding recently, and I stayed over at her place the night of. Basically it turned out that only a small amount of the wedding cake was actually eaten at the event, and she put the other 80% in the fridge.
I stayed up late and got stoned, and I ended up eating the entire cake. The next morning, my sister was furious with me and claimed that it was for them, and that I should have only taken a piece, but that really baffled me. Yes, she didn't specify that I could eat her food, but it seemed natural to me that a house guest should be able to help themselves to whatever amenities are available. I refused to apologize, and she's still a little upset with me about it. Honestly feel pretty stubborn about this one but I'd still like to hear anyone else's opinion.
First name Anakin, middle name Skywalker. I wish I were kidding.
My sister is 19, four years younger than me, and she became pregnant unexpectedly with her boyfriend of only three months. She’s way too young for a kid, and that shows in a multitude of ways, but none so egregious as her name announcement.
She posted on Facebook yesterday a calligraphy banner with “Anakin Skywalker last name” printed on it.
I put a laugh react because obviously I thought it was a joke? But then later when I called her to ask for the real name she said “no, that’s exactly what we’ve decided to call him.” I asked how the BD felt about it and she said “well I’m carrying the baby for nine months and pushing it out of MY body so I get name privileges.” Wtf.
I said dude, you know this kid is going to be abysmally bullied, right? You’re giving him a name that is fully entrenched in pop culture. It’s not a name that he can fit to his own identity, he’s going to be known as Darth Vader his whole fucking lif... keep reading on reddit ➡
My sister is a senior at high school and I am a sophomore. She was about to be valedictorian at graduation this Spring.
She has a tiktok account where she posts videos of herself and ones she takes at school and home. Some of them are kind of nasty, filming people unaware to make them the butt of jokes. She's filmed me for it, including filming me when I was crying.
I made her take down the video of me but she still did similar things to other people. I honestly didn't get all the jokes, some were weird tik tok inside jokes I guess? But they had people being sneakily filmed and made the butt of a joke, which isn't cool.
So after a while of that, I went and screen recorded all of her nastiest videos and sent an email to the school guidance counselor. I used a throw away email address and said that I wanted to anonymously report bullying by a student at the school towards other students. And to watch the videos attached. I pretended to be a concerned bystander rather than someone wh... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m (26F) my Asian parents’ first kid, I was the test-trial child. I had fuckups so my sister (19F) won’t. They count on me for things since they’re not good with English. I was forced to mature at a young age.
Then my sister came. I guess that they saw that I turned out fine, they didn’t need to restrict my sister like a dog. They’re overbearing to her, but tiger-parents to me. They favor her like a daughter while they treat me more of a friend-daughter than actual daughter.
Sister was angry at their protectiveness that she turned rebellious in high school. She knew she had more leeway than I did. She was right, they tried to stop her from partying and getting drunk with other kids.
She fell pregnant last year, no baby daddy in picture. My parents have traditional Asian beliefs, and by traditional, I mean bullheaded beliefs that’ll bend a trident. They had high hopes for her: college, good-paying job and a family of her own.
They were angry at her pregnancy, but they didn’t believ... keep reading on reddit ➡
Throwaway because the last thing I want is more drama during quarantine.
So sorry if I mess up any bee terminology. I’m not a beekeeper, annnnd my sister’s hobby-turned-obsession has put me off basically for a lifetime.
It all started when the shelter-in-place came down in my state. I didn’t want to stay confined to a dorm, and since my sister has a house, I was happy to crash with her when she offered.
Here’s where it gets messy.
My sister is a beekeeper as a “hobby.” It’s never bothered me before. But when coronavirus started spreading in our city, my sister started to get paranoid. Not paranoid about OUR health, mind you, but the health of her *bee colony.*
First she was afraid that predatory animals might come in and disrupt her bee colony to get the honey (I guess they’re getting bolder with less people outside).
Then it got weirder. She started telling me that she was worried her bees might get COVID. She said that the virus started in bats, so who was to say it wouldn’t... keep reading on reddit ➡
Throwaway. This happened months ago before the quarantine but is still being brought up from time to time.
My sister is an outspoken feminist and even though I am a guy, I support her causes and have attended protests/events related to women's matters in the past. She holds these issues close to heart and since we grew up together and have a great relationship, I also want to do anything I can to help her.
The reason I opened up with that is because a friend of hers, that we both know, invited her (and by extension me) to her birthday party that her parents were throwing for her. Now it was mostly going to be Indians there as her parents were going to invite family that lives in America and back in India as well, and a few handful of friends of other friends who were also white
My sister was excited and the friend mentioned that she'd help my sister wear Indian clothing (I think it was a sari garment). Apparently it was acceptable for the men to come in more Western clothing but re... keep reading on reddit ➡
My sister has been living with me since I live close to her college and had the room in my house. Things were fine and we were living pretty well together.
Late last year I realized that she was sleeping with my best friend from high school. That completely ruined my relationship with him because he'd talk about his new fuckbuddy to me and damaged my relationship with her but I tried to just distance myself from the whole thing and let it go. She used to sneak him in at night but to her credit she stopped after I spoke to her about it.
Well in the middle of the night, I woke up to get some water and over heard her talking to him about how I'm controlling and a dick. So I went in and told her I'd like her to move out in the morning. Guess she didn't believe me because of how shocked she was when dad came to fetch her. Honestly I also feel like pulling out funding her degree but that's a bit too much. AITA?
So I (26f) have an older sister (28f). When we were very young, our parents (dad is from Spain, mom isn't) divorced and I decided to live with my dad while my sister decided to live with mom. As a result, I grew up fluent in Spanish while my sister did not.
Dad moved back to Spain to retire, and sister decided to join him for a while since she didn't spend a lot of time with him growing up. She spent a few months there, got a boyfriend and came back home with him.
She introduced me to him a while ago, and it was very clear he was struggling with English. So I decided, why not strike up a conversation in Spanish? I'm fluent, and it'd give him a break from having to speak English all the time while he's here.
My sister was preoccupied, so I started talking to him. Just general things "how'd you two meet?" and so on. She comes back into the room, and seems put off that I'm not speaking in English with him. After dinner they go back home, but I get a long text from my sister. It basical... keep reading on reddit ➡
So this is a generally long story, dating back about eight or nine years ago from the beginning until now. I’ll throw in a bit of context here to help you understand the situation a little bit better; My grandparents on my father’s side of the family are really well off in wealth, they practically own all of the lands within a small city environment that was inherited from my grandfather’s father before him and split between himself and his two siblings, they do business in renting out the land to companies, farmers, and homeowners (from my understanding). This has brought my grandfather’s life worth up to roughly about 2.8 billion dollars within his lifespan before he passed away.
My grandparents encourage a lifestyle where we need to make our own way within the world, but they are willing to help out with certain expenses such as school funds, rent, homeownership, and sometimes even smaller things like vet bills, shopping, etc. Now we can get onto the story. So about roughly nine... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi reddit, got a situation on my hands.
I'm (23M) not a big guy by any means. Hell, up until a few months ago, I certainly wasn't athletic. I'm about 6"2 and 165lbs, and was a pretty "nerdy" dude. Spent a lot of time on my Xbox, rarely doing much athletic work.
My sister (21F) on the other hand is very athletic. She's about 5"7 140lbs, involved in many sports. Always has been. She always took pride in her athletic ability.
So once the l0ckdown happened 2 months ago (in UK), I decided to take up exercise, mainly due to curiosity and boredom. I wasn't concerned with bulking up, so I just ate my maintenance calories but ate high protein (so I'd stay the same weight but gain strength).
I went from being able to do pushups/pressups with 5kg on my back at the start of quarantine, to 2 months later (now) being able to do 7-8 reps of weighted pushups with 35kg on my back (while staying @165lb bodyweight). I can also do weighted pullups with 20kg attached to me, and weighted dips with 17k... keep reading on reddit ➡

Afternoon Assholes, Some background, my husband & I decided this January that we were going to try to have our first baby. My sister (who is in a lesbian relationship) has also been trying for a baby for about two years, but in October of 2019 her & her partner got licensed to be foster parents. The whole family was so happy for them when they got their license and so was I. Now they’ve had about 5 or 6 temporary placements & 1 permanent placement who they’ve had since she was 2 and she’s now 3. 3 weeks ago we found out we were pregnant with our first child!

Edit: I just wanted to thank everyone for their kind words. On some of your recommendation I’m sending her a book about science experiments. She loves science and wants to be a scientist when she grows up.
I feel a bit guilty because I haven’t talked to her in quite a while. But she got ahold of mom’s phone and she called me. I’m almost 30 and she’s 6. And she’s so cute. First thing she asked me if I’d I still remember her. I told her of course I do because she’s one of my favorite people in the whole world. She asked if she could visit me. I had to tell her she lives far far away so she probably couldn’t tonight. She then asked if I was lonesome. I got a bit choked up because I really am. But I told her “only sometimes”. Now she wants to sent me her “science experiments” because she doesn’t want me to be lonely. Regardless of who you are or what your relationship is with your parents I hope you all make time for your siblings. They can be the most precious things in your life.
One 26-year-old Robinhood trader made $1,500 in less than 24 hours betting on a beaten-down airline stock, while many so-called experts on Wall Street warned about buying into an overvalued stock market that was bound to tumble again amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Last Thursday, Lequon Godbolt, purchased a call option for American Airlines that made him $200 on the millennial-favored stock trading app.
After seeing reports that the airline was increasing domestic flying for summer travel, Godbolt bought another call option minutes before the close. When the market opened higher last Friday after a surprisingly positive jobs report, Godbolt raked in his profits.
“I just started taking it seriously about two months ago,” Godbolt — a New York resident— told CNBC. “I’ve been watching AAL since the beginning of that time and I felt eventually, once Covid relaxed, mar... keep reading on reddit ➡
Like a lot of people, I had to save up and buy my own car. I was lucky to find an old Volvo in 2016 when I started my freshman year of college. All 4 of my siblings got cars from my parents but times changed and they couldn't afford one for me.
My sister who I love has crashed 2 of her cars. Each time my other siblings pitched in to buy her another car. At the time it didn't really bother me since I had my own car. In 2019 my Volvo had major mechanical failures and the repairs would cost more than the value of the car. I had a job but I still couldn't afford the repairs. So I spent my senior year of college without a car. Thankfully the bus system was amazing and it took me to my job and other places I needed to go. In January my sisters car broke down but it still works.
I woke up last week to a new car in the driveway and for a few minutes, I thought it was mine. When it was given to my sister I lost it. Everyone in my family was home and I let them have it. She doesn't have a j... keep reading on reddit ➡
My sister(15f) lives alone with me(22f)
About an hour ago she came into my room crying saying that she feels like she ruined my life. She mentioned that if it wasn’t for her I’d still be with my ex(he left because of her) and that she feels that she makes my life so much harder. I tell her that she makes my life better but I don’t think she believes me. What should I do
Edit for clarification:her last home wasn’t a healthy environment for her to grow up in and my ex hated how she was always at my side
My (25M) parents are very religious Christians. They are pretty okay usually, but are crazy about no premarital sex etc.
And in their minds this also means that you don't need things like the HPV vaccine or birth control until you're married. All because they "pushed" you to have sex. Very flawed logic, I understand that. They aren't against any other vaccinations, however. HPV is the only one they refused to let us get.
When my sister was 15, she had been getting really bad period cramps and such. She missed school regularly because of it, and the doctors recommended getting her on birth control to help with it. It was an immediate no from my parents. They were willing to try anything other than that. In the end decided to just exclusively pray for her recovery.
So sister couldn't get on birth control and suffered every month because parents' refused to get down from their religious high horse.

When it comes to salary, she specifically asked, I don't like to have that conversation but hey I thought, if we are going to one day be married than its important to know. When I told her, she got a bit shy about sharing hers, but I didn't mind. And my girlfriend prides herself on being a feminist so I didn't think anything of it.

My sister recently had a baby. While she attempted vaginal birth, her heart rate dropped and she doesn't even remember being wheeled in for surgery. Her fiance was allowed in the OR and they had already started cutting her by the time he caught up. Basically she was gonna die and they were rushing to save her and the baby. My sister spent a week in the hospital to deal with the various health issues. But it appears to have a been a freak thing and she's healthy as is the baby.
After recovery they resumed normal sexual activities. At some point, her fiance decided to inform her that while he didn't want to tell her what to do, he's glad she had a c section so she still "feels good down there." Apparently he wanted her to get one so she wouldn't end up loose like his ex. My sister called him a moron, along with many other colorful statements, and can't believe how dumb he is.
He also doesn't believe me that c sections weaken the pelvic floor at the same rate vaginal brith does. He gen... keep reading on reddit ➡

My sister (16) has been bullied by 2 girls, Sarah and Jessica over the past couple months. They share one class together. Im 17 and next year is my senior year. Ive been in this city for the entirety of high school and I love it here, I'm the founder of the hiking club where we usually pull up about 40 kilos of garbage every time we go hiking and I'm the captain of the rugby team. I'm trying to get a scholarship at the top university in another country and I'm absolutely sure i can get it.
My sister however, has been constantly complaining about how she's being bullied. Its never physical, its just some girls occasionally say mean things to her in person and occasionally online, some of which i feel like she might deserve a bit like one time where she got everyone in trouble because she refused to admit to cheating off other people on a test (she cheated off of them and copied their wrong answers word by word... keep reading on reddit ➡

In December 2016 I bought a playstation 4 with my own money. What’s the problem? The problem is my sister, in may 2018 she wanted to make a playstation account, and since then, she plays fortnite 4-5 hours a day but, I can’t play with her switch and my parents never said a word to her while she was playing.
Why she plays the playstation instead of the switch if she only plays fortnite? It’s because for her the switch is s**t and the playstation is better
Then why she bought the switch? Good question.
Sometimes when I’m doing homework and she wants to play and I say no, she goes to my parents telling them that I don’t want her to play the playstation, so my parents make me turn off my computer, leave my room so she can play. Sometimes I even got into arguments with some teachers because my sister was playing and I couldn’t use the computer to send homework.
When she plays she yells and screams all the time, at the point that a neighbor wrote on the condominium elevator twice in 2... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was adopted when I was 5 years old by a couple who were 28 and 30 at the time. They had no other children. This past year, two things happened. My adoptive father was diagnosed with cancer, and my adoptive mother got pregnant for the first time in decades. My adoptive mother always thought she was infertile, but apparently her "miracle" had arrived. She carried on with her pregnancy despite his cancer and her age. She died in childbirth, and my adoptive father followed her two months later.
Which left me with an infant baby sister and two dead parents. My family is telling me that this is my duty, that I'm not a child or incapable, and of course they're not offering to take her in at all. They've all vehemently refused. Everyone is furious that I "used" my adoptive parents' resources, and now that it's time to reciprocate I'm "taking the easy way out". They say I'm the right age to have a child anyway, and that it's just like if I had sex and gave birth to her. They've even brought... keep reading on reddit ➡
My sister is 37 and has been mostly single for the past 3-4 years. She's a doctor and is working like 70 hours a week on occasion and the hours can be brutal. However, she takes time for herself and she's quite attractive (if that's not creepy to say). Plus, she's very intelligent and well-read and can discuss a ton of different things.
She's been complaining to me about her dating life a lot lately, saying how she can't find any guys that want to date her that she also wants to date. I have obviously asked her the reasons, and the main ones are she's looking for someone close to her age who's also career-driven like her, and more importantly, he must also be her intellectual equal. And he must also not be unattractive - to her at least.

While it was an effective way for me to give birth, it is the least dignified. My plan is to hold off pain management for as long as possible even though this is my sister’s kid.

It turns out when I have been out, or not paying attention, they've been lending my car to my sister who is 17 and has a minors driving license. I told them that wasn't OK to have done without asking me, plus I told my sister to stop taking my car out.
I don't like her driving it because I don't have my car insured for a minor driving it, and what if she crashes? Plus, even though I'm hardly going out, I don't like seeing my car missing with no warning randomly.

I got engaged recently to the absolute love of my life. Now this relationship was born out of a lot of drama. We met when I was working as an administrative assistant for him, and he was engaged to another woman. There was a lot of back and forth, and no one in the situation was very mature. That's all over and things have been great for the past year.
So I have two sisters, Rose and Diane. At the time this was happening they were both living with our parents, so when I'd come by to see Rose, Diane would overhear a lot of this and she never liked my fiance. She thinks the relationship was inappropriate because he was my boss, and I can see why someone would think that, but I'm going to be completely honest, I've never really had career aspirations. That job was always a temporary means to an end well I looked for a husband.

So I (18M) find that I've been faring rather well under this lockdown. I've sought out intellectual stimulation by diving deeper into great literature, especially philosophical works such as Man's Search for Meaning. I've contemplated my existence, asked the hard questions but also rewarded myself with copious amounts of Halo 3 (an old classic I like to play).
Now I'm quite different to my sister (23F). I'm not particularly close to her. She's more of the "party" type. She likes her instagram, astrology and terrible teen drama shows.
I guess we both do sort of fall into stereotypes. Needless to say, she has not fared well under this lockdown. Something that has always bugged me, but which I've never commented on directly to her, is her infuriating and asinine forced "positivity".
