Firstly, let me assure you there's no way your sister is over this guy after barely 3 months. They were together 3 years! This was the guy she expected to spend the rest of her life with. You don't get over that in less than 6 or even 12 months, trust me. Secondly, your sister is hurt. And angry and disappointed and disillusioned and humiliated and grieving. She's on the rebound and trying anything to mitigate the pain. Right now she needs your unconditional support and love, not judgment. The worst thing you can do is tell her how much better she'll feel in a few months' time. So what? How does that make her feel better NOW? Tell her you're concerned for her wellbeing, her safety, her health but don't lambast her for her behaviour.
