Brother Wants to Adopt His Little Sister after Dad’s Death, Finds Out His Wife Is against It

After her father-in-law’s death, a woman faced a challenging decision when her husband’s younger sister needed care. The couple had mutually decided against having children. A Reddit post, twice restricted, detailed the man’s conflict about caring for his sister and his wife’s contrasting stance.

Married for two years, the couple, mourning the loss of the OP’s father, confronted the dilemma of the eleven-year-old sister’s guardianship. Despite their prior agreement against having children, the sister chose to stay with the OP. Tensions escalated when the wife insisted that they shouldn’t have a child, suggesting the sister’s uncle could adopt her.

The OP, prioritizing his sister’s well-being, decided to let her stay, prompting marital tensions. When the wife couldn’t accept this decision, the OP declared their separation. The wife accused him of choosing his sister over her.

Opinions on the post varied. Some criticized the wife as selfish, urging the OP to prioritize the sister. Others sympathized, acknowledging the challenges of caring for a traumatized child. The situation highlighted the complexities of family dynamics, sparking a broad spectrum of responses.
