The Strawberry Letter: I Took Up For Him and It Backfired

Dear Steve and Shirley,

My brother and I were best friends, and I love his wife like she's my blood relative. Her family has become my family because my brother and I lost our mom 10 years ago, and our daddy is a loser. His wife's family has welcomed me for Christmases, birthdays, and other family gatherings.

All of that has come to an end because I took up for my brother, and it backfired on me. I manage a restaurant in the county, far away from the city, so it has become the spot for cheating men to go on dates. My brother is the main one who's always hitting me up for a table in the back.

Back in November, I put him in the back for a date with a lady who flew into town to see him. She didn't know he was married, so I played along when I met her. My brother also needed an excuse to spend the night with her, so I went along with his lie that he was staying at my house so he could go to a baseball practice with my son the next morning.

A few days later, my sister-in-law, my brother's wife, called saying my brother had left his to-go box in the car and the food was spoiled. I told her that he came by to see me, and I gave him some food, so he probably forgot that it was on his back seat.

That was back in November. Last week, I got a call at work from the lady he had dinner with; she was trying to reach my brother. I called my brother, not knowing he was in the car with his wife, and told him that his little girlfriend had called me looking for him.

My sister-in-law has blocked me, and so has her family. I choose her and her family over my brother any day of the week. My apology won't do, so how do I fix things with her?
