A Letter To The Man Who Marries My Sister

by Camila Leon

My sister has been my best friend and person since day one. So, getting her means you get me too.

Dear future brother in law,

First of all, I’d like to say congratulations. You could’ve ended up with anyone else in the world but you chose my sister and made it work. Secondly, marrying her means marrying our whole family. And finally, good luck!

No but seriously, thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for existing. Thanks for showing her not only the ability to love herself but also how to love you. Thank you for being tender and caring in all aspects. For being her rock when she was in a hard place and always accepting her decisions for what they were as well, as giving her advice and reassurance when she wasn’t sure she’d made the right choices.

Thank you for always being by her side when things got tough. For loving her despite her flaws and her difficult moments. My sister is one of the strongest people I know in this world, and I have always looked up to her. That being said, she will have her moments…

She will crack and take her emotions out on you.

Maybe she’ll question everything you do.

She might get easily annoyed and argue with you for no reason, but that’s just what our family does. We’re loud and we argue, but things will always clear up.

Don’t get mad at her for this. Be patient, hold her hand and most importantly be her shoulder to cry on.

Despite all her quirks and short comings, my sister loves hard and deep even if she doesn’t always show it.

She’s the most independent person I know, but she’s been hurt before. She might have her guard up at times or try to hide her vulnerability, so always treat her right because she deserves someone who will.

I know that if she chose you too it’s because you make her better. You’re her person now so please don’t take it lightly

With love,

Her baby sister.
