A woman's sister is going through a divorce and she's not taking it well. However, the woman is blaming her sister for the entire ordeal. Apparently, the sister was not ready to have kids but went ahead and got married anyway. This caused problems with her husband, who wanted biological children. The sister eventually told her husband that she didn't want kids, and he filed for divorce. The woman who posted the story thinks that it's her sister's fault for lying to her husband and not being upfront about her feelings. But is she right? Did the sister have a duty to tell her husband the truth, even if it meant ending the relationship? Or should the husband have been more understanding of his wife's wishes? It's a tough situation, and there's no easy answer. But one thing's for sure - this family is going to have a lot of drama to deal with in the coming weeks and months.

Sister blames divorce on refusing to have kids, AITA?

Deciding whether or not to have children can be a difficult choice for some. But when one partner wants biological children and the other does not, it can lead to a heartbreaking situation, as it did for one woman's sister. After two years of marriage, her sister's husband asked her to be upfront about not wanting children, and now the divorce proceedings have begun. The woman is left wondering if she is the a**hole for telling her sister that it was her fault for lying and not being ready for motherhood. Is she right? Or should she have been more understanding? Let's take a look at what Reddit users had to say about this complicated family situation.
