A man's family shunned him after he fell in love with his deceased brother's fiancée. Lies about their relationship spread and they moved away. Now that they have a child, his family wants to make amends. But he's asking for a public apology to his wife and an admission of their lies before he considers it.

His father thinks it's beyond petty. Should the family just reconcile in this situation or is the man's condition reasonable?
