The Aftermath of a Brutally Honest Talk 🌪️

After the big sister's candid talk about the realities of parenting, the little sister and her husband decided a dog would be a better fit for their lives. 🐶 They admitted they weren't ready to handle two babies at once or provide the necessary support for a potentially disabled child. The big sister's parents, however, were less than thrilled, accusing her of scaring the young couple away from parenthood. 😡 Her husband, on the other hand, applauded her honesty, although he suggested a more gradual approach to sharing such intense information. So, what do you think? Was the big sister out of line or just being brutally honest? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 👀

"NTA You did the right thing. It is SO easy to get caught up in the baby craziness because of family. 'Oh but then they'd grow up with their cousins.' 'Aren't you worried about being OLD?' 'Well I hope I'm still around by the time they are.' My boyfriend and I are at that stage where our families have been at us for having kids since we're the last in both families. We got caught up in it and went through a baby craze, but after a 5 or 6 months it passed. The no contact with family because of covid helped too. Although we want children, both of us are happy we didn't end up pregnant. There's still so much to prepare and save for, plus we're happy being delinquents for a few more years." 😊

NTA for expressing your truth, but parenthood is subjective 👍

NTA. Rarely anyone tells the truth about children and pregnancies. People get devastated when they see the reality. Those who don't prepare others are the a**holes. Did you know you can get endometriosis because of childbirth? In my eyes, you're right. 😊
