First, I'll give you some background. I'm a 26 year old guy. I have a brother who's 28 and we were like best friends. We even look so much alike, people think we're twins and we have to correct them. Two years ago, I moved across the country for a job. He stayed in my home town.

First, it wasn't a "chick".

I don't understand. So you're saying it could only get worse, not better? My brother was always good about picking out nice girls. I don't know what happened there. There's something he likes about her, but I don't know what. She's hot, but that's all that's going on with her. My brother had hot looking girlfriends in the past, but this is the one he picked. I'm just here venting. My brother and my friendship is decaying. I'm not happy about it.

"When we got near each other and started to talk, she swooped down like a hawk and gave him a chore to do or pulled him away (like in another room)"

Did you ever confront her when this kind of thing happened? Tell her "hey I only see him twice a year, you see him everyday so give me some time with him" or something like that?

If my brother had married a gal like your future SIL I think I would have had to say something. It might've caused friction between the couple but there's going to be friction somewhere with a control freak.
