Hi there, just hoping to find someone in similar situation with advice. My husband cheated with my sister a yr ago. Him and I worked through it and are a very happy cpl now. We did seperate for awhile and he realized what he almost lost. My thing is what do I do with my sister. I haven't spoken to her in a yr, she moved away and still writes me from time to time but I'm still so angry with her. She had also stolen from me repeatedly and lied when the truth came out. Just wondering of after a yr should I start to forgive? They'll never be allowed near each other ever again but how do I have a relationship with her after this? Any advice would be great! And no judgements pls!

Does your sister know that you know? Was there alcohol involved(not that it would be an excuse)? Were you close with your sister prior?

If I was in your situation I don't think I could 'forgive' my sister. I do feel I could 'accept' it as being in the past. So I think I would keep my interactions with my sister on a more superfiscial level until I felt more comfortable and she had regained my trust. I would also limit my frequency of communication with her(remember b-day and holiday cards).

As a starter I would send a letter to her sort of like this:
'Sisters name'
I've received your letters. I hope you are well. I have nothing further to write or say at this time.
Love,
'Your name'
