In many cases where siblings have parents who split up and enter a relationship with someone new, it can take them a different amount of time to adjust to that new person in their lives. Some siblings adjust faster and can build relationships more easily, while others have a harder time.

One woman recently dropped out of her sister’s bridal party after discovering that their dad’s girlfriend, who she does not get along with, will also be in it.

She’s 32 and has a younger sister, Maria, who’s 25 and getting married. She was planning on being one of Maria’s bridesmaids.

When she was a teenager, her parents got divorced. Although her mom got full custody of her and her sister, her dad would still visit. Unfortunately, when her dad did come around, he mostly wanted to spend time with Maria.

Her dad’s excuse for what felt like blatant favoritism was that Maria “needed him more,” and this hurt her growing up. Her relationship with her dad hasn’t been the same since her parents’ divorce.

A few years after her parents split up, her dad began dating his current girlfriend, Jane. Unfortunately, she and Jane don’t really get along, as she immediately started inserting herself into her business.

“Jane was obsessed with the idea of reconciling our relationship,” she explained.

“The few times I’ve met her, she would get into arguments with me, claiming that my dad only wants his daughter back and [telling me] to give him a chance.”

She and Jane have gotten into a few nasty arguments, and Jane accuses her of being her mom’s “lap dog” because she doesn’t want to reconcile things with her dad.
