Brother’s Future Wife Expects Woman To Babysit 40 Kids During Their Wedding, Goes Ballistic When She Refuses

Imagine being extremely close to your sibling when growing up, only to realize that it may all change for good after they get married. This is what happened to a 20-year-old woman whose older brother was about to marry his fiancée, Emily.

“We don’t get along at all,” the author of this r/AITA post said about Emily, her future SIL. It turns out, Emily asked her to babysit the guests’ babies at their ‘childfree’ wedding, the same wedding she initially didn’t allow the author to attend because she was too young. “In Emily’s eyes, a child is anyone under twenty-one years old,” the author explained.

But the author was not happy to accept the offer, saying “the more I refused, the angrier Emily got.” Read the full story below and be sure to share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Ridiculous! A slibing not invited to a wedding? That's just cruel. And she has to babysit for 40 childeren! That's just mad. I hope your brother opens his eyes and understands what of person Emily is. He can be ashamed too for his own behaviour towards his sister.

Nope, you are not the asshole. What I don't understand is why would the fiance need a child care type service if children aren't invited to the wedding. And seriously who the f**k considers a 20yo a child. Sounds like Emily is just making excuses to get rid of you. I would honestly stand my ground and not even go to the wedding. Your brother, Emily and your family that's pissed at you are the assholes here.

Thank you - that's exactly the problem I was having with this story. All these people aren't supposed to be bringing their children. 20 is not a child and if she is considered one why on earth do they want a child looking after other children. Two people with 40 children is way too many anyway - that's extremely unfair. I'd not want to go at all.

Nate should have a good look at his to-be-bride and reconsider his options. I hope his sister will be there when he gets divorced.

I hope it doesn't come to that, Hope he'll take a good look and back out before he needs a divorce.
