Definitely not a YDI. The little sister might be a total pain in the ass but he can't do anything about it "because she's family" so OP, you do you and dump him if his little sister impacts you that much. If you really care about him though have the courtesy to tell him what's the matter, maybe he can place some limits on the sister when you're there.
I used to think the same way, but I have seen marriages break up over family members being deadbeats, thieves, bigots, or just assholes. Everyone has a breaking point, and given that it's pretty difficult to cut family members out of your life (even if one or more of them are awful people), ending the relationship is probably the best course of action for OP.
Dang sorry OP. Maybe you could try talking with your boyfriend about it or at least explain to him why you are breaking up with him.
You shouldn't let others dictate how you feel girl! Brush that off.
Just talk to him about it! If he cares about you, he'll do something!
well if you really loved your boyfriend you wouldnt even consider dumping him an option. sorry, but it sounds like whether you hate his sister or not, the relationship won't work.
I see what you are saying, but 32 also has a great point. There are marriages where one spouse has a family member that can completely ruin the marriage. As 32 said, it could be a drug addict, a thief, or something else. The problem can be when the spouse basically chooses their family member over their spouse and the spouses feelings and need for space. For example, if there was a family member (a brother let's say) that did drugs and was homeless and stuff and the husband lets his brother live at their house all the time and the brother causes major problems, then yes, it's conceivable that the wife would want to break it off with her husband because of issues with the family. Again, the bigger issue is that the husband would be choosing the family member over his wife's needs, but still. In any case, because they are not married this wouldn't apply to op, but the point still remains that even though someone loves someone, there is a breaking point and family members could be it. :)
Unless she loves him but he is constantly taking his sister's side over hers. I had a friend who's bf's mom would call her a slutty bitch, but her bf wouldn't ever stick up for her because "she's family, what can I do?" Also had friends who ignored family problems and ended up getting horrible divorces later on thanks to that. If the sister is being rude, OP has talked to her bf about how it bothers her, and he still does nothing, then I can understand a breakup. If OP hasn't even tried anything though, then yes I guess he wasn't all that important to her.
I understand that people don't always get along with thier significant other's family. But never have I heard someone breaking up with the other for it. If you really love your boyfriend you'd find a way too deal with it. Like spending more time at your place or neutral places.
To me it sounds like as good a reason as any to break off a relationship. His sister will always be a part of his life, and if she and OP really can't get along, it saves everybody a lot of grief if they just break up before things get too deep. And you're right, she probably doesn't really love him, but there's no indication that they've been exclusive for very long, so that's not really unusual.
#27 I agree. Holding on to a romance when there is pain and distress resulting from either side's family is overplayed. It's not awful that she feels this way, as some people have indicated. OP should be honest with him and they should see what they can try to do to make the situation better.
Kids can be evil. For example my best friend was over weight and was insecure about it. Every time he would go to my house my little sister would ask him why he was so fat every time she saw him. Wouldn't even say hi first. It was incredibly rude but he couldn't say anything about it and my parent never protested either. So I know how you feel OP but you have to remember that you're the adult or older at least and that a talk with your boyfriend about how she treats you could take you a long way instead of just dumping him
Why wouldn't your parents say anything about it!? I don't know how old your sister was at that time, but your parents should've told her immediately to not say such incredibly rude things. (I'm kinda assuming she was really young and asked your friend out of curiosity, and not to be mean on purpose.)
