We used to look alike (we are fraternal), and as we've grown older we now look very different. She is taller, heavier, slightly darker. She has natural hair. We dress very differently. But we are pretty much the same person, with the same likes, dislikes, etc.

One of my aunts even went so far to point out our baby pics and say that my twin sister was the cuter one in every baby photo. I mean I don't really care, but what the hell's the point in that???

I try not to be paranoid but it kind of feels like I'm being purposefully slighted.
LOL

You sound like me

Your family compliments your sister because they feel that she needs it. You are always taking care of your appearance so they probably look at you and think you don't need a confidence boost.

I'm guessing they're done throwing compliments into the gaping black void of narcissistic need.

The first thing I thought when I read the OP posting was, this is someone looking for people to compliment her and feel sorry for her. Very needy.

Your family loves you because you're kin but doesn't mean they have to "like" you.
Here we go again.

Are you saying the married sister should receive respect and compliments simply because she is married?

I personally feel if I sleep with married men its none of my families business...
That doesn't give them a right to judge my life.

The married sister should be respected for having children within a marriage. And she should receive compliments for keeping up her good looks despite having been pregnant three times AND having a hectic life raising three children properly.

So... have you ever slept with another woman's husband? And if so, if you were my relative, I would judge you harshly. Why? Because you are bringing shame to our family name and making our collective morals look bad.

And being a baby momma (an unmarried mother collecting welfare or not having the father involved as a parent) would also be shameful behaviour to my family. Living with a Section 8 voucher would been seen the same way. Have some dignity and pride in yourself, and don't live a gutter trash lifestyle!!

It's not the woman's fault if the man abandons his responsibility. I hate when people look down on single mothers.
