Wedding Drama: Fair or Favoritism? 🤔

So, here's the situation: Dad refuses to pay for Jacob's wedding because he's too young, and Jacob ends up eloping. Years later, Carl raises Jacob's daughter Jade, and now Dad is offering to pay for Carl's wedding as a thank you. Jacob is furious, accusing Dad of favoritism. Is Dad in the wrong, or is he just showing gratitude to Carl and his fiancee for stepping up and raising Jade? Let's see what people have to say about this family drama... 👀🍿
