What do you tell your sister who s getting marriedto a someone who you used to know (and is messed up) after 3 months?

She s 24
Already has a 5yo child
Still lives at my parents house
Never lived with the guy
Don t care for her daughter
Had 20 000 debts

How to make her see sense

You can't. Be honest with her but it's not your life. Some people have to learn the hard way. Be there for her

I think if you're going to dissuade, it would be OUT of marriage... This'll be stuck in my head all night now.

It's simple, you can't. She will do what she wants no matter what you say. It sounds like she already makes bad choices.

You tell her as your sister, you'll support any decision she makes, but her decisions should not be made lightly as she has a daughter to think about too. Then roll on into the things you're concerned about.

Make sure you reiterate you'll support her regardless, because that's what family does.

You can't and just because someone doesn't look good on paper

you can never tell how their marriage would go.

You can't. She has to live and learn.
