A reader writes: My boyfriend and I are talking about moving in together.
However, there is one problem: his overbearing sister. She insists on organizing all events and then bombards us with lists, e-mails and nagging phone calls. My boyfriend and his family laugh about it and tell me to ignore her control-freak ways, but I feel anxious about losing my sense of autonomy.
It’s come to the point where his sister is making me reconsider our future. How can I deal with her without losing him?
