why didn't you share a room with someone else? someone like, oh I don't know, your husband?

haven't you ever heard of fighting siblings? it's quite extreme to assume a long time abuse.

Show it anyway

haven't you ever heard of fighting siblings? it's quite extreme to assume a long time abuse.

This idiot doesn't understand how people work.

That's just how siblings work. I'm a 17 year old girl and my brother is 21 and if it comes down to it neither one of us are scared of roughing the other one up. That's just how we were when we were younger so it sometimes shows now. Lots of siblings still fight like they're children, it's not a big deal and no parents are going to think that either child is abusing the other because of a little sibling rivalry, let alone accuse the adult sibling for assault.

No I don't know how "healthy" sibling rivalry- which I think is bullshit anyway- works, because when my older brother and I fought it led to broken bones, concussions, and PTSD for me and stab wounds on his arms for him. Sibling rivalry CAN become abuse, and a lot of people sit on their ass and ignore it because "oh, they're siblings, one trying to do major bodily harm to the other is NORMAL!" I'd rather point of the possibility than be the same type of person that led to me having cracked ribs three times.

Maybe her husband didn't go with her, or her in laws have this crazy rule that, even though their married, they can't sleep in the same room?

I assumed that if there were only 3 bedrooms, and 2 opposite sex sibling living there, that it meant girls would bunk together. Otherwise brother and sister would have to share a room so hubby and wife could have a room.

Was the air mattress under-inflated? And if she's 17, how can she have a brother for 24 years?

24 year old brother. That's what makes "of" different that "for".

You see people writing things like "my boyfriend of 7 years," and it doesn't mean he's a 7-year-old.

Is this 24-year-old brother of your sister-in-law your husband? Or is there a third sibling involved?

You let that one little comment get under your skin? YDI.

Slap him with the mattress

Next time you go visit spring for a hotel near by.

He can she have a brother of 24 years if she is only 17 years old?

this is a copied comment. That is like asking how can I have a 62 year old grandmother.

Why were you not sleeping in the same bed as your husband? And why was it your job to stop the sibling rivalry?

If it was fun, then cute, but wrong place. If serious or aggravated, notifying the parents or police are the correct steps.
