You're kind to them, give presents, and enjoy their company in family gatherings, but you've set boundaries. So, what happens when your brother-in-law (BIL) tries to convince you to take his daughter to see the Sonic movie? 🤔🎥

Boundaries Tested, Couple Stands Firm 🚧

This child-free couple has been accused of being heartless after refusing to take their niece to see the Sonic movie. They've set clear boundaries with their family, but their BIL tried to push those boundaries by asking them to take his daughter to the movie. The couple offered to rent the movie on pay-per-view for them later, but that didn't seem to be enough. The family has a history of trying to drop their kids on the couple, even using their financial situation as leverage. Are they really the bad guys here? 😕💢 Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...
