Wedding Dilemma: To Invite or Not to Invite? 🤔💔

Our protagonist lost his dad at a young age and formed a strong bond with his mom. However, their relationship took a turn when she started dating a younger man named Jack. As their relationship grew, our protagonist felt more like a hindrance than a son. Fast forward to the present, and he's engaged and planning a wedding in Hawaii. When his mom asks about the wedding details, he admits that he's not sure about inviting her and her family, as they're a constant reminder of the pain he's experienced. This leaves his mom in tears and leads to backlash from relatives who call him ungrateful. Let's see what the internet thinks about this heart-wrenching situation... 💔😢
