Should I insist that my sister not intoduce her boyfriends until there's a ring on her finger?

My sister has had a few serious boyfriends over the past couple of years. Each time she involves them and they too like these guys. Thjen when it's over between them she expects my kids to "breakup" with them too. I don't think this is fair to them, so I don't think I want the kids getting to know anymore of these guys. They have all been good people but starting and ending a relationship should be up to them not her. Any advice

Wow. very serious. I wouldnt want to see the face on my daughters face when she was told she would no longer see uncle whatever his name is. I really think you need to protect your kids feelings, dont get them use to the idea of seeing people in and out of their lives. Kids easily get attached too fast.

I see both sides of the coin. Your sister probably wants to see how the bf acts with her family before getting the ring, but you want to protect your kids. I would make her wait a couple months before bringing them around or having the kids spend alot of time with the bf. If she wants to bring them to family get togethers or holidays that's her choice, you don't want to start a feud over this, but tell her that if she wants one on one time with your kids it should just be her.

WELL I MEAN I UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU COMING FROM I MEAN IT IS A PERSONAL CHOICE THAT YOU HAVE TO MAKE SHE COULD GET A RING ON HER FINGER AND THEY STILL BREAK UP SO YO AND YOUR SISTER HAVE TO COME TO AN UNDERATANDING OR HAVE A SIT DOWN WITH YOUR KIDS AND EXPLAIN TO THEM THE SITUATION
