A widow posted her story on the Reddit App and asked other users for their opinions. She stated that she was being judged for not dropping a dime for her older brother's wedding.

A recent post on Reddit addressed an ongoing family issue between a woman who lost her husband about a year ago and a man who is soon to walk down the aisle with the love of his life.

She explained that her husband's insurance policy affords her a very comfortable life with her daughter. Her older brother happens to have a girlfriend, and the pair have decided to seal their relationship by tying the knot.

Recently, following the ease of the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, the poster's family held a meeting to discuss the upcoming wedding ceremony.

In attendance were the poster, her dad, stepmother, bride, and groom to be, the groom's mother, the bride's dad, mom, and the groom's siblings.

At the get-together, the bride seemed thrilled as she "handed out" information packets. According to the widow, she lost interest when she got to the list of expenses.

That was not all; the shocker was when the poster saw that every family member was given an amount to contribute. The widow exclaimed:

"You expect me to contribute?"

As the meeting proceeded, the bride's father reiterated the agreement they all had as a family. Apparently, the bride had been promised $70,000 from her parents.

She was assured that the groom's family would cover a nice rehearsal for thirty people and an open beer and wine bar at the reception.

This wasn't a good enough offer for the soon-to-wed, and she began throwing tantrums and even went as far as to challenge the poster who made her way out of the meeting at this point.

The woman happens to have a blunt personality and has explained to her family that she won't contribute after all the drama she witnessed.

She said that her friend advised her to contribute for peace's sake, but she seems to have made up her mind on what to do.

The whole issue is stirring friction between brother and sister, and the widow's dad wants her to "let this die down."

Many commenters agreed that she was not to blame and that being blunt and saying things as it is should not cause her to apologize.
