THis might be long so sorry in advance. Let me give some background. My sister and I are 20 years apart. We are more like mother and daughter than sisters. In the past few years we have started to have much drama between us. She is very head strong, does what she wants, when she wants. Our parents are still around but might as well not be because neither of them have any parenting skills whatsoever. Her senior year my parents allowed her to live with her boyfriend because neither of them wanted her to do something stupid like marry him. Well this relationship turned into a disaster. So she broke up with him and started dating this other guy. She moved in with him at his parents house. In January of 2007 she married him. She is only 19 he is 22. When we first met the new guy I liked him. He was good to her, seemed like he at all together. Had a job had been going to school. Then we found out he quit school. Why??? Seems he had gotten himself into trouble before he met my sister. It's pretty serious, like prison time kind of serious. Well it is finally coming to court (it happened 5 years ago) and they want me to be there as a character witness. It has been highly suggested by both my principal and my superintendent that no one take any leave during the first six weeks of school. I have explained this to my sister and her husband that I just can't take time off. They are upset with me. I have told them that I would write a letter to the judge or anything else but take a day off. They are both threatening to call my principal and ask her themselves for the time off for me. I told them no!!! They are also telling me that if dont go to bat for him that they will never speak to me again. I need some advice with this. I am dead set on NOT going because this is what is expected of my job, but if I don't go my sister will be mad at me. What do I do??? Help!!!!
