A woman finds herself in a difficult situation when her sister announces her upcoming wedding. The invitation states that the wedding will be a child-free event, which puts the woman in a tough spot as she has two young sons. She believes weddings should be family events, and if her children aren't allowed, she doesn't see the point in attending. This decision leads to a heated argument between the sisters, with the bride-to-be even threatening to cut ties if her sister doesn't attend.
