Brother Wants To Adopt Little Sister After Dad Dies, But Wife Refuses, Claims He’s Choosing Sibling Over Marriage

A 28-year-old man faced a tough decision when his 11-year-old sister, orphaned after their father’s death, chose to live with him. This choice conflicted with his and his wife’s agreement to remain child-free. The situation escalated, causing severe marital strain, as his wife firmly refused to adopt the sister, suggesting the uncle could care for her instead.

The man shared his dilemma on Reddit, where he received mixed reactions. While some empathized with his wife’s desire to adhere to their initial agreement, others supported his decision to prioritize his sister in her time of need. The post, later removed due to excessive attention, highlighted the man’s struggle between familial duty and marital commitment.

Eventually, the couple decided to part ways, as the man chose to take in his sister, leading to the breakdown of his marriage. His wife accused him of choosing his sister over her, to which he agreed, emphasizing his sister’s priority.

This situation underscores the complexities of life decisions, especially when unexpected circumstances challenge established plans. The man’s choice reflects a deep sense of responsibility towards his sister, albeit at the cost of his marriage.
