A man is struggling after his wife's family, who she cut contact with 16 years prior due to abuse, are now insisting on meeting their granddaughter. The man's wife passed away last year and made it clear that she did not want her family near their daughter. The man's sister-in-law is pressuring him to let the grandparents meet the child, but the man is conflicted about whether he should respect his wife's wishes or give in to the family's demands. He doesn't know the full extent of the abuse and manipulation his wife faced, but he wants to honor her wishes. However, the family's persistence is making him question if he's being too heartless. Read on to find out more about this emotional dilemma.
