How to put up with sister’s cheating husband



May 28, 2019 - 10:09 AM

Dear Carolyn: My sister’s husband confessed to an online affair and apparently is going through a major midlife crisis. My poor sister is of course stressed and worried, although they are doing marriage counseling and he is also doing counseling himself (I think).

The problem is we (my mom and I, we’re a very close-knit bunch) now hate this guy’s guts. We were never crazy about him — he’s selfish, rude, etc. — but tolerated him because he made my sister happy. Now he’s not even doing that.

So if they stay together, what’s the best way to deal with him? Because it’s going to be really hard to deal with him after all of this. — Hate His Guts
