Sister is cheating on lesbian partner who is like family — should I tell her?

DEAR DEIDRE: I HAVE discovered my sister is cheating on the woman she has been in a relationship with for 15 years.

This woman has become part of our family and I am torn over what to do.

I am a 33-year-old woman. My sister is 35 and has been having an affair with a girl of 20. All the family are in a state about it.

My sister and her partner have a nice life together with everything they could wish for. I can’t imagine what she could want with someone so young.

No one wants this new girl around. We want the person who has been part of our family for so long. There must be something we can do to put things back to how they should be.

DEIDRE SAYS: We can not sort out other people’s relationships. You can have no idea how things really are between your sister and her partner.

They may appear to be a contented couple on the surface but they could both be very unhappy.

Getting involved, especially when you have your own agenda of wanting to see them stay together, is likely to do more harm than good.

Tell your sister that you are there any time she needs someone to confide in and keep your fingers crossed.
