Betrayed by a Brother 😡

Our friend (26m) went to a family gathering to celebrate his dad's birthday, but little did he know that he'd be confronted with the painful past. Three years ago, he discovered that his high school sweetheart, C (25f), had been cheating on him with his own brother (23m) since his second year of college. 💔 The betrayal was so deep that he cut them both out of his life. Fast forward to the family gathering, and his brother walks in with C, now his wife, and a baby stroller. 😳 Despite his brother's awkward attempts at apologizing, our friend just can't seem to forgive him. He's left with trust issues and a broken heart, wondering if he'll ever be able to move on. 💔 Let's see what the internet thinks of this heart-wrenching situation... 😢
