A woman and her ex split when their son was just a year old. Now, six years later, she has majority custody and is engaged to her boyfriend of four years. After announcing their engagement, her ex demanded to 'check out' the new fiancé, leading to a tense conversation. The woman's mother, a firm believer in traditional family dynamics, has tried to get her daughter back with her ex before. But this time, she took it a step further by inviting the ex to a family gathering without her daughter's knowledge. When the daughter found out, she left immediately, sparking a family feud.
