I have no interest in my husband's brother, nor is he interested in my sister, and I can't really venture into what-if land there. Some can handle it and see no problem, as everyone is single.

Some will make a case of it, finding it disrespectful of the ex and sibling.

Applying a code to those relationships doesn't somehow protect them from change or lock our old feelings in the past. " when someone close to you dares to date someone from your past, ask yourself what really upsets you about the prospect.

If you can articulate clear reasons that speak to genuine hurt feelings, emotional discomfort, and perhaps even concern for your sister or friend's well-being, then express those.

And as stated above, it could cause issues down the line if the sibling feels weird because they don't trust you around their brother/sister because you 2 used to sleep together, and they fear you may be again.

When I tell people about this situation, everyone thinks what she is doing is wrong. They say I shouldn't have a problem with it since I've been happily married for 13 years and that it was over a decade ago when we were teenagers. I understand you'd be hurt that your sister is dating your high school sweetheart, but I find it more difficult to understand how you'd be upset with any female close to you dating any ex of yours, regardless of when you dated him, how serious you were, what the breakup was like, and what your feelings for him are now.

Not every relationship is created equal, and you shouldn't apply some silly "code" to all of them as if they are.

I figured it has been 15 years, we are both grown adults now and, yes, part of me wanted him to see just how fabulous I turned out.

It's called the Girl Code and she needs to respect it.
