During a Christmas dinner with her family, her parents brought up her living arrangements and her older siblings' marriage choices, causing her fiancée to feel embarrassed and her to feel angry. In response, she shared a premature birth story and asked to see her family's birth records, causing her parents to quickly change the subject. She warned them that she would bring up private family matters if they ever mentioned her living arrangements again. Despite her parents being upset with her, her fiancée was relieved that the subject was finally dropped. Read on for the comments and reactions to this family feud.
