A Christmas Without Family: The Price of Neutrality? 🎄😢

In the midst of a family feud sparked by a brother's divorce, one woman and her husband find themselves in an impossible situation. They're being asked to choose sides, but they're determined to stay neutral. However, their decision comes at a cost. As the conflict escalates, they're left out in the cold, uninvited to Christmas celebrations by both sides of the family. As the festive season approaches, they're left wondering: is their neutrality worth the isolation? Or is it time to pick a side and mend the broken ties? Let's see how the internet weighs in on this family dilemma... 🎅🤔

NTA. Stay neutral and let the family fight it out. 😱

"NTA I would stay out of it. But I can understand where your brother is coming from. When the cards were down Anna chose her mother. She can have perfectly valid reasons for that, but it would be hard to know that your wife when push came to shove had someone else who was going to be more comforting? More important? Then your brother. I don't know your brother, but my guess would be is that Anna was his #1. If he had a scary surgery or something else he wouldn't have picked anyone else. It's hard to know when your #1 has you at #1 unless it's something serious or important in which case... #2 I would also guess that he was hoping right up until the delivery that she would change her mind and then had 6 days to really think about it.... alone" Replies: "Yep I completely understand the brother. My husband is my #1, no questions about it. I'm pregnant now, can only have one birth support, and he's it. Didn't even have to think about it. The thought of choosing someone else to be there during the birth of *our child* is unimaginable to me. If I wasn't my husband's #1, I would have hoped he wouldn't have proposed to me. I don't want a marriage with someone who would seek support and comfort during one of the most critical life moments in someone else. That's not what a marriage is to me. Anna made her choice and frankly shouldn't be shocked by the outcome. She had the right to choose someone else but that led to irreparable damage to her marriage. Actions have consequences and she's facing that now."
