She's been in love with him for a very long time. The man is married with a beautiful wife and two children. For sure he'll never get a divorce and marry my sister. So... why is she so tied to him? How could she do that to her family?
Years ago, she promised not to continue that relationship but now she's still secretly meeting him. Just last month, I saw her having lunch with him. I then had a serious talk to her, trying to persuade her to stop. It was so cruel that a member in my family was intefering with someone's family life. I didn't dare to tell mom since she would've felt terrible if she'd known that fact. However, yesterday's incident was more than mom could stand. She's collapsed. Someday his wife will find my parents, like she did several years ago, and make a fuss about it. That would be a shame to my family.
What should I do now? Talking to her? My brother and I have tried but couldn't seem to change her mind. Forbidding her? I don't know where it could take us. She's got her job anyway.
It's hard to write about all of these. I just wanted a place where I could let out my thoughts and receive advice from you.
I'm so worried about my mother, too. :(
