Dear Carolyn: My sister is getting a divorce. Theyre still living together and trying to be civil and remain friends, because they were friends for a long time before ever getting together. Im glad about that, because I really like him.
But she keeps talking badly about him to me in texts and emails. Im tired of it because I know her and I know she is worse than he is about most of the things she complains about. Ive been trying to keep my mouth shut, but its not easy.
Is there any way for me to gently remind her that if she truly wants to do this the right way and remain friends, like she says, maybe she should call a truce with him and at least try to work on the friends thing? Shes getting the divorce she asked for, so continuing to whine about his faults is not helpful to anybody. In-Law
