Family dynamics can be complicated, and a Reddit user found himself estranged from his family due to his sister's infidelity. The user, who was close to his brother-in-law, cut ties with his sister after she left his friend for another man. Despite his parents' attempts to reconcile the family, the user has refused to attend family gatherings where his sister is present.

He recently gave his parents an ultimatum, stating that he wouldn't attend any family gathering if his sister was there. The situation has caused a rift in the family, with extended family members taking sides. Some family members have reached out to the user to try to resolve the situation, but the user remains firm in his decision.

What do you think of the user's ultimatum? Is he being unreasonable, or is he justified in his stance? Read the full story and share your thoughts in the comments below.

Ultimatum over sister's infidelity sparks family feud 😡

A man's relationship with his family has been strained since his sister cheated on her husband and left him for another man. Despite his parents' insistence on supporting his sister, the man has distanced himself and is now demanding that his sister not be invited to family gatherings if he is to attend.

The situation has caused tension between the man and his parents, with both sides feeling hurt and upset. The man's extended family has also become involved, with some reaching out to try and repair the relationship. However, the man remains firm in his stance and is unwilling to compromise.
