SIL was in a long distance relationship with a guy for 8 years. Yeah. 8 years. They'd continually discussed trying to coordinate their grad schools/internships in the same city so they could experience the relationship on a daily basis before advancing the relationship. SIL finally got an internship in his town. Right before she arrived, he told her he was too busy with med school and needed a break. DH thinks "stuff happens". I told him no way, this guy has always had other girls on the side, (or more likely SIL was always the side) and with her coming to town, he had to get rid of her before his whole game was up. I also think SIL is an idiot for doing a long distance for 8 years and never bothering to introduce him to MIL and FIL, and MIL and FIL are idiots for letting this happen to their daughter. So much stupidity.
