A man took to Reddit after getting into a nasty fight with his younger brother, Mark, over a woman. When the man first met his girlfriend, Jenn, he had no idea she was once involved with his brother.

They'd met at a bar, and they immediately hit it off. The man described Jenn as the most brilliant, most beautiful woman he's ever met.

The man had just moved back to town when they met. He had been in another state for a while, so he had no clue who the woman was or anything about her past.

One day, after things got pretty serious between them, he proposed introducing Jenn to his family and even showed them pictures of her during dinner.

The Man Finds Out about the Woman's Past

Finally, the man's phone wound up in his younger brother Mark's hands, and he went berserk. He slammed the man for being a terrible brother for choosing to date his ex-girlfriend and demanded they break up.

The man insisted he had no idea that he and Jenn ever dated. For weeks, Mark blew up the man's phone. And when it all stopped, the man thought Mark was finally over it.

Through it all, the man's relationship with Jenn just kept getting better. It got to a point where he knew it was Jenn he wanted to settle down with. So, on her birthday, he proposed to her. He invited their families and her close friends to a fancy dinner before getting down on one knee.

Once again, Mark objected. However, the man and his sisters quickly shut him down and asked him not to cause a scene. For months, Mark kept a low profile. He rarely showed himself until one day, he invited the entire family over to his apartment.

The man thought it was weird that after all the fights, he'd suddenly invite everyone over. However, because the man's parents and sisters were going, he decided he and Jenn would go as well. Their dinner went smoothly. It wasn't anything too fancy, but it was comfortable enough that they moved to the living room to talk.

Mark Made the Most Daring Move

"He invited me and Jenn for family dinner at his apartment with my parents…About 30 minutes into normal conversation, Mark stood up and told us he had an announcement," the man said. He prepared a speech about being glad his family was around for such a special moment in her life.

Then, he pulled out a ring and got down on one knee, asking Jenn to marry him. Jenn looked uncomfortable the entire time and asked him to stand up.

Meanwhile, the man was fuming. Their dad tried to grab Mark to pull him aside, but the man got to his brother first and punched him.

Through it all, Mark argued that the only reason Jenn was with the man was because she wanted to get back at him. He added that she wasn't really into his brother.

Before things could get worse, their parents ushered the man and Jenn out of the apartment and promised to talk to Mark. Several days later, the man was still furious.

After Reddit users commented on the situation, the man clarified that it was him who approached Jenn first, so she couldn't have been out to get him as part of a revenge plan. Jenn also admitted that she had no idea the brothers were related when they met at the bar.

It was Mark's overreaction to the relationship that was a big red flag for the man. While he was sure he wanted to be with Jenn for the rest of his life, he wondered whether something happened between her and Mark that made him react that way.

Despite the anger he felt, the man decided to speak to his brother once and for all to set things straight. He never gave an update, but it's safe to say he's sure Jenn doesn't want to get back with Mark.

What would you have done if you were in the man's situation? Is he right to fight his brother over love?
