Eloping Couple Stands Firm Against Family's Do-Over Demands 💍🚫

This couple found themselves in a whirlwind of family drama after canceling their big wedding and eloping instead.

Despite the family's insistence that they'll pay for everything, the couple remains firm in their decision to not have another ceremony. With a baby on the way, they've suggested using the money for something more practical, but their families won't budge. Let's see what the internet thinks of this sticky situation... 🍿
