A few days ago, A Reddit user opened up about why he is refusing to attend his brother's wedding. The man explained that his brother called his wife "a thief" for wearing a ring that belonged to their late mother. Other Redditors also weighed in on the topic and spoke about their own experiences.

A Redditor posted that his brother called the cops on his wedding because he suspected his wife stole his mother's wedding ring. The man said that his deceased mother had passed down the ring to him since he was the eldest brother and his siblings weren't interested in the family tradition.

For most people, their siblings are their best friends. They spend their entire childhood together and develop a strong bond. Siblings always stand behind your back to catch you when you fall. They have seen you grow old and know everything about you, which is why most people maintain a good relationship with their sibling even after growing up.

MY BROTHER CALLED MY WIFE A THIEF

A few days before his wedding, the Redditor's younger brother showed up and asked for the ring because he wanted to propose to his girlfriend. The man refused because the ring was now his wife's engagement ring, and he couldn't ask her to take it off and hand it over to his brother. The brothers argued, and the Redditor uninvited him from his wedding. In the post, he wrote:

"But Carl showed up at the wedding and started calling my wife a thief repeatedly telling her to give back my mom's ring that I helped her steal. He made a scene by calling the police and it ended up being closed as family dispute. My wedding was ruined and my wife was devastated."

The Redditor did not talk to his brother for a year after what he did. He hadn't heard from him in a long time then one day he received an invitation to a wedding. Thinking about what happened at his wedding, the Redditor rejected it. However, his family thought what he did was rude and tried to force him to attend the wedding.

The Redditor asked other users if he was cruel, and many of them told him that he wasn't. They said that it was his right to reject the invitation and stand up for his wife. They also suggested that this might be another attempt from his brother to get hold of the wedding ring. Most Redditors supported the original poster's decision and told him not to attend the wedding. 

Sometimes, things might get bitter between siblings, and that happens in every relationship. Some people on the internet shared similar stories to the user and asked strangers for advice.

MY BROTHER EXCLUDED MY SON FROM HIS WEDDING

Another Redditor, helpwiththis_, posted that his brother invited him to his wedding but asked him not to bring his son because his to-be-wife, Tara, said so. He also mentioned that Tara and his ex-girlfriend (his son's mother) had a rivalry in high school because they liked the same boy who later rejected Tara and dated the Redditor's ex. 

The Redditor got his son's custody after he was born, and his girlfriend meets their son occasionally. He also mentioned that his siblings were allowed to come with their kids at the wedding except him. Tara had banned his 5- year-old son's entry, and he wasn't happy about it. In the post, he wrote:

"My brother pleaded me to go along with this because he wants her to be happy on their special day. So I said you know what fine. But if my son isn’t allowed at the wedding then I won’t be going either."

After hearing this, the Redditor's brother got mad at him because he wanted his entire family to attend the wedding. Their parents think that Tara is unreasonable, while their siblings think the Redditor is over-reacting. He asked other users for advice, and they flooded the post with their comments.

One of the users said that he did the right thing by standing up for his son. If other kids are invited, then the child should not be excluded from the wedding. They said it wasn't the child's fault that the bride was holding grudges against his mother. Another user commented

"Is he planning on cutting his nephew out of his life forever due to his fiancé/wife’s childhood feud with the child’s practically non existent mother. Does this mean she will make him or expect you to miss family events/Christmas/birthdays etc if your child is there?" 

Other Redditors suggested that he should ask his brother what his long-term plans about treating his nephew are. And if he plans to exclude the child from every family event, he should make that clear.

I DON'T WANT TO GO TO MY BROTHER'S WEDDING

Another Redditor, ItsAWitchThing1, asked other users if she was unreasonable by thinking not to go to her brother's wedding because her mother thinks he is overreacting. The woman revealed that she was very close to her brother until he met Sarah.

She also revealed that she had health issues when she was young, and some of them even continued as an adult. Her brother knew about her condition and told Sarah about it, which made her reach out to the Redditor to talk. The Redditor's brother then broke her trust by telling Sarah all her secrets, which upset her.

A few years later, she found out that her brother was getting engaged to Sarah. She also learned that her brother didn't plan on informing her until their father intervened. The Redditor revealed that she had a mental breakdown in her flat, and her brother stole her apartment's key and barged in with Sarah. They then took pictures of her which they planned on using as blackmail later.

A few months after that incident, the Redditor found out that her brother included the entire family in the wedding ceremony except her. The brother didn't even send her the invite but expected her to come. This upset her, and she decided not to attend his brother's wedding.

The Redditor also mentioned that Sarah asked for a £500 present for her wedding. She then asked other Redditors for advice, and one of them commented:

"It seems like he's doing everything he can to make you feel unwelcome, why dont you arrange to do something different for that day so even if he does ask you have a valid excuse?"

MY SON DIDN'T INVITE HIS BROTHER TO HIS WEDDING.

A confused mother wrote to Miss Conduct on The Boston Globe asking for advice. She explained that her younger son did not invite his elder brother because he is always mean. She feels sad about it because it reminds her of when he wasn't included in school activities.

On the other hand, the younger brother thinks his parents are always taking his brother's side. This time, their father decided to withdraw the financial support and boycott the wedding if he didn't invite his brother. The mother also mentioned that she loves her daughter-in-law and wants to attend the wedding. Miss Conduct replied:

"Dismissing your younger son’s pain is cruel, and shielding the older one from the natural consequences of his behavior is not the kindness you think it is. He needs to learn that if you hurt people repeatedly, they’ll exclude you."

Miss Conduct hinted that the parents shouldn't take their older son's side because he is mean to his brother. She also said that the money they want to give is a gift and not an obligation, so it's their choice. However, they should let their younger son know about the condition that they will fund his wedding if he invites his brother. 

It's natural to have rifts in the family, but that doesn't mean people hold grudges against each other and don't solve the root problem. What advice would you give to these people who posted their concerns on the internet? We'd love to know your thoughts.
