Dating your step sibling

One of my work colleagues is doing this and I am kind of grossed out by it.

They were raised as brother and sister from the time they were 12/11 and now they are 27/26.

I have no interest in my husband's brother, nor is he interested in my sister, and I can't really venture into what-if land there. Some can handle it and see no problem, as everyone is single.

Some will make a case of it, finding it disrespectful of the ex and sibling.

Would you just go for it regardless of what your ex thinks? Personally I wouldn't simply because in some capacity that person will be part of your life again, I'm sure it could and would cause a problem down the line.

But yes in truth I think it's a bit too disrespectful to the ex, especially if you ended it on a good note. After my husband's grandmother died, his grandfather married his late wife's sister a few years later.

Not because you're trying to get back at your ex, but because you're genuinely into the sibling. If you're worried about hurting your ex, would you pursue the sibling if you had their blessing?OK, let me explain: Say you have the same father, and you live with your dad and your half-sibling’s mom (dad’s wife).
