This is the reality for Malcolm (22M), who has been asked by his terminally ill sister's mother, Sandra, to become the guardian of his half-sister, Elena (12F).

Let's dive into the story and see how it unfolds. 😱

"YTA and hes right, youve been together for 6 months, and its his literal sister who is currently losing her mother to cancer. Youre nothing worth compared to her, and you dont get a say. If you dont agree, leave him, he deserves better. Its also not selfish to ask him to become the guardian. You were so out of place saying what you said." 😱

"YTA. Your (now EX) boyfriend has stepped up to take care of his FAMILY. He didn't NEED to 'consult' you on any of it. You have no say in HIS life. Six months? He's been her brother for TWELVE YEARS. She was part of his life before you showed up and she'll be part of his life long after you're gone (which is probably about now). He agreed to step up, knowing full well what the responsibility is. You are the one being selfish... cold-hearted, short-sighted, and self-centered. No thought to this little girl losing her mom, with only her big brother for family. Just you, and what YOU want." 😡
