9 Dos and Don'ts of Meeting Your Sibling's Partner

If you have siblings, you may feel this innate protectiveness over them—even if they're older. With this in mind, it makes sense that when they introduce you to someone who may potentially break their heart, you may be a little tougher on their new partner than you would be on, say, their new co-worker. Even though it's coming from a place of love, try to ease up a bit because their new S.O. is probably already intimidated and nervous about meeting his or her partner's sibling.

Even if your sibling's new partner isn't exactly your cup of tea, being rude or standoffish won't do anything except upset your sibling and give their partner a bad first impression of her significant other's family. Our advice? Be as nice as you can (without coming across as fake), and if they aren't the right person for your sibling, they'll realize that on their own in due time.
