I personally don't get along with my parents so I wouldn't ask to bring a date over, but I do have friends who have completely open and honest relationships with there fam. Looking at things from two very different views, I do think that it is important for the person your dating and the people you are closest to to be acquainted. I don't think time is necessarily a deciding factor on introduction. Wether it's two months or two years, if you feel a connection with someone, it's definitely a good idea to inform your loved ones of your status.
Informing the people who are close to you of your feelings and intentions for another, is a good way to get feedback from the people who care about you. Allowing your loved ones to be involved in your relationship early on shows them that you value there opinions on your decisions and informs the person that your dating that you have a strong support system and shows that your serious about them as well.
This is also a good way to let the a** w****s know that they better be straight with you or there going to be answering to quite a few people...
As for your personal situation, support your sisters decision, even if the rest of your family dosnt. If things turn out to be good between she and the new boo, then she will love you twice as much for supporting her. And if things turn out bad, at least she knows that she can turn to you for comfort (andto kick the guys a**). Eigther way, you will strengthen the bond between the two of you. What else could you ask for?0
