His Cruel Sister Wants to Reconnect After Being Diagnosed With a Terminal Illness, but His Wife Says She Needs to Stay Out Of Their Lives

A man had a strained relationship with his family, particularly his sister who had been consistently cruel to him and his wife. One day, his sister explained she was very sick and wanted to be part of their lives again, and asked to attend their daughter’s birthday party. His wife was wary about her re-entering their lives, however, and here’s what she had to say:

Her Stepson Did Something “Unthinkable”

The woman explained, “My husband and I have been married for 11 years. I have two teenage daughters, and he has a 19-year-old son from a previous relationship. We had two more children, aged nine and four. We had custody of his 19-year-old son until he did an unthinkable act to my daughters.”

Charges Were Brought, But They Didn’t Lead To Anything

The woman did not explain what her stepson did, but it resulted in charges being brought against him. The stepson moved back in with his mom, over 1,500 miles away from them. In the end, charges were dropped, but the woman was thankful that at least everyone was now safe.

The husband’s sister-in-law told him to abandon the woman and her daughters, asserting that his son needed him more. But her husband didn’t listen to her, and they stopped all contact with his sister-in-law as well as his stepson.

He Received Sad News

One day, the husband received news that one of his relatives had died. Her husband’s aunt was responsible for the funeral arrangements, and it was the sister-in-law’s duty to inform them about the services.

However, his sister-in-law didn’t tell him the plans for the funeral service! The husband eventually received a text from a cousin, asking if he would attend. However, the notice was too short, as they lived three hours away, and they wouldn’t be able to attend the funeral.

After the funeral services ended, the woman and her husband received a distressing phone call. His mother had been airlifted to the hospital, and despite the fact he no longer spoke to her, he left work to be by her side as he didn’t want any regrets. But when his sister also arrived at the hospital she started an argument with him, telling them he was “hateful and selfish, so he left.”

His Sister Resented Them

The woman explained that her sister-in-law harbored feelings of jealousy towards her husband. He had managed to overcome a challenging upbringing, while the sister-in-law had chosen to live off the state. The sister-in-law never asked for financial help but made snide remarks about their financial stability and implied that they were privileged.

A week after she arrived in the hospital, her husband’s mother suffered a stroke and her husband once again rushed to be with her. However, after his sister arrived at the hospital five hours later, he decided to leave and chose to have no contact with her.

They Reconciled

Several weeks later, her husband received more worrying news. His sister had phoned to tell him she was very sick, and as a type one diabetic who neglected her diet, her kidneys and heart were failing, and the doctor gave her a year to live. In light of her situation, the husband and sister-in-law reconciled.

Then, one night the sister-in-law called to ask about their 9-year-old daughter’s birthday plans. The husband told her the plans and the sister-in-law asked if she could attend. However, the woman didn’t want her to be there and reminded her husband of all the hurtful things she had done to them.

Instead, the woman suggested that her husband take a weekend trip with their two children to visit his sister. However, he did not like that idea and hoped that if his sister attended the party, they could put the conflicts behind them. The woman, however, wanted to avoid the drama, as she believed her sister-in-law was consistently negative and cruel.

The Internet Responded

One person said, “You offered a reasonable compromise. She’s a generally insufferable person who can’t handle having adult relationships. If she is truly working to make amends, she should take what she can get on your terms – not hers – and enjoy the open door you’re providing. Hopefully, with the time she has left, the door will open more and more but for now, it’s understandable why you’re guarded with your time and energy.”

Another Person Made a Comment

“Why do you even believe she’s dying? She sounds like the kind of sketchy kind of snake who would say that to slither back into your lives. Watch your wallets.”
