Well, dear Data, you've done one of the things that helps --- written to us abou it, and used the chance to get it off your chest. The whole brother/lover/sister/living together/working together bit sounds rather incestuous, doesn't it ? And it sounds a competitive rather than friendly atmosphere. If you folks were the main three at the meeting, and your brother already knew this was your idea, what was the point of his lover presenting it and pretending it was his own idea ? Both of you knew where the idea came from, so what was he hoping to active ? Is he usually so insecure as to need to grab at a chance to look more important ?
It's usually, anyhow, a better idea when one has such brainwaves, to jot down the idea in a memo, with your name on it, and the date, so there's evidence for the record, of where it came from, and from whom.
Can't you discuss this with your brother ( alone ) and describe how annoying this was for you, and how it severely discourages you from making any other contributions to the company ? Isn't he prepared to give you some formal share in the business, especially in proportion to the success of such ideas ?
To what extent is there otherwise some sense of competition between you and his lover, such that the guy might want to undermine you ?
