When I was 11 I moved out of my fathers home & went to live with my mother. My sister who was 13 decided to stay with my dad, only the 2 of them lived there. He added her to his checking account so she could help him pay bills. Around this time he took us shopping for new furniture for the living room & let her pick out what set she wanted. When I visited for Christmas we opened gifts, after I left my sister called me and told me my dad bought her a new bed set, I thought it was weird she had extra secret gifts. Around the time my sister was 15 my father remarried, also at this time my sister began drinking heavily. My mother would try to talk to my dad about it but he would say it's normal all teens drink. His marriage only last a couple years. After the divorce my dad added my sister back on his checking account, she even had her own checkbook. He also added her on his credit cards, and she could use them freely. I always thought it was weird. I always felt like the odd man out around them. My sister has always been competitive with me for my fathers attention. We are both married now & have families of our own, but do not speak. We had a few arguments over who monopolizes my fathers time & attention. He once told me he is afraid to make her angry for fear she will never speak to him again I always felt he treated her like his wife.
No she never told me anything odd. My father moved out of state & when he visits she pretty much demands he spends majority of his time with her & he must be with her for all holidays & he does it.
