Dating brothers


It’s astounding how many clients have now made the same joke.I overhead one client call me the “nottie.” I’m now feeling pressure to try to look hot, when that's not what I'm about.Shortly before I was hired, the owner was sued, because while all the senior positions went to men, the rest of the staff was made up of extremely attractive women. I’m a brunette who’s over 25, and I’m not “curvy,” just one big curve.



We were always extremely close and shared a bedroom growing up.My brother, though, is exhausted with this charade.He thinks that if we get the family together with a therapist to talk through the issues, they'll eventually accept it.He said that while incest is generally illegal in most jurisdictions, the laws tend to be enforced in a way that would protect minors, prevent sexual abuse, and address imbalances of power.

Those aren’t at issue in your consensual adult relationship, but Markel suggests you have a consultation with a criminal defense attorney (don't worry, the discussion would be confidential) to find out if your relationship would come under the state incest statutes.

Dear Nottie, Your firm must have been a source of endless stimulation and even hilarity for the male clients for so long that they no longer notice that they’re flouting the normal rules of courtesy.
