How Do I Tell My Nosy Sister To Leave My House?



Question From Ms. T

My elder sister moved in with us six months ago because she was transferred from Ibadan to Lagos and she had no where to stay. I love her a lot, but she is always having conflicts with my husband. She is very lousy, she talks to us in commanding tunes, and always pokes her nose into our marital affairs.

It is causing a lot of tension between my husband and i. My husband wants her to leave but I don’t know how to tell her, whenever we have a disagreement she always says I am disrespecting her because I am married and she is not. I told my mother about her behavior, she said she is my sister that I should beg my husband to let her stay and learn to tolerate her till she gets her own apartment (which she is not looking for!). I don’t want to displease my family and I don’t want to jeopardize my relationship with my husband. I really don’t know what to do.
