A Heartbreaking Choice: Family or Wedding? 💔

After years of a strained relationship, a woman gives her mother an ultimatum: choose between her and her step-sister's wedding. The step-sister had an affair with the woman's fiancé and has caused chaos in her life for the past six years. The woman's mother, who recently had a heart attack, is now faced with a difficult decision. The stepdad is supportive of his stepdaughter, but the mother and her best friend think she's being childish and controlling. Will this ultimatum finally put an end to the family drama, or will it only make things worse? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...
