A man and his wife have suffered the loss of two children due to medical conditions. As they were still grieving, they were asked to babysit their family members' children during his brother's wedding. Despite his explanation for being unable to do so, the family dropped off the children at their home anyway and he demanded they pick them up, causing the family to miss most of his brother's wedding because they were looking for someone to babysit.

The family blames him for ruining the wedding by not doing this "one little favor." Was he really the a**hole? Read on for a heartbreaking story of loss and family expectations.

Man misses brother's wedding due to entitled family behavior 😠

When a couple loses a child, it's understandable that they need time to grieve and recover. But for one man and his wife, their family couldn't seem to understand that. Despite their tragic loss, they were still expected to take care of their relatives' children on the day of their brother's wedding.

When they refused, they were met with anger and blame from their family, who accused them of ruining the wedding. Was this man really in the wrong for standing his ground and refusing to take on more responsibilities during a difficult time?

Let's take a closer look at the situation and the reactions of people on Reddit.
