Husband ignores wife at sister's birthday, confrontation ensues 🔥

A wife invited her husband to her sister's 18th birthday party at a restaurant, but he declined, saying he had a meeting with clients. However, when the wife arrived at the restaurant, she discovered her husband was also there, having his meeting in a corner table with four men.
