Since my sister has been living with us I’ve seen how controlling he is

I’ve never been a big fan of her husband. He has small-man syndrome.

But since my sister has been living with us I’ve seen how controlling he is.

He has told her she needs to stay covered up around me and any of my friends.

She is seven months pregnant and I’m her brother, for goodness sake.

Even though she is living with us and earns her own money, she has to ask his permission for everything, whether she can go to the park with a friend, or even buy toiletries for herself.

My sister is reluctant to admit there is an issue.
