In an era where tradition often collides with modern values, one man found himself in the crossfire of a family feud. After his sister's boyfriend sought his 'permission' to propose, he responded with a firm 'no.' Not because he disapproved, but because he believed his sister, a successful, independent woman, didn't need anyone's permission to get married. Little did he know, his well-intentioned response would ignite a firestorm of controversy within his family. 😲
