OP’s sister, pregnant with her first child, requests their mother’s presence for the whole of July. Unaware to OP, the baby’s father shockingly turns out to be OP’s ex-boyfriend, introducing an unexpected twist of treachery. This past transgression creates a palpable rift between the sisters, adding an unexpected layer of complexity to the wedding situation.

The sister’s request for the mother’s presence is made more intense due to her due date coinciding with OP’s wedding. The mother is then cornered into a seemingly impossible decision: to support her pregnant daughter or to be present at her other daughter’s long-awaited wedding. Struggling with the decision, she suggests that OP postpone the wedding.

OP, undeterred, asserts her stance, refusing to delay her much-anticipated wedding. The confrontation intensifies, pushing the mother to decide who she will support. This decision is further complicated by the influence of meddling aunts, urging OP to consider rescheduling her big day.

The familial conflict reaches a boiling point, putting everyone’s relationships to the test.

The mother, under the pressure of the escalating tensions, finally makes a surprise decision. She decides to divide her time, attending the wedding while ensuring she’s present for her pregnant daughter. The decision, although an attempt at a compromise, escalates the existing conflicts due to perceived favoritism.

The Silent Protest

OP’s aunts, unsatisfied with the mother’s decision, decide to boycott the wedding as an act of solidarity with the pregnant sister. This unexpected boycott places additional stress on OP, leading to new challenges in maintaining the wedding plans. The family’s division is made more evident, creating a larger chasm within the family unit.

The readers in the forum had a lot of mixed views on the matter. Here are some of their responses:

One reader said, “Your wedding is on a particular date. Your sister can either make it or not. You have a venue and vendors and your spouse’s entire side lined up.

Your sister wants you to inconvenience ALL OF THEM in order to have your mother with her for “AT LEAST A MONTH”? Don’t make me laugh. Your sister and her issues sound like they could fill a psychologists’ convention for a month.”

Another Commenter Thinks

Another responder wrote: “Don’t for a second even consider postponing. Sounds like your sister is devoted to ruining everything in your life that she can. That seems like a deep-rooted psychological problem or just pure evil.

Your mother can make her own decision. You don’t specify how she reacted to your sister’s betrayal. But you should celebrate your happy marriage with people who want to be there for you.”

A Third View On The Story

A different person states, “Your sister and mother have known for months the date of your wedding. It’s unreasonable to wait this late to ask to postpone. Your mother can spare one day.

I’d make an offer, though, if they are serious about postponing. They have to pay the full cost of the loss of the deposits, an inconvenience fee, and the full cost of rebooting the wedding. They have until 5 pm Monday to have the full amount in cash delivered to you.”
