A bride’s strange request to keep
her sister-in-law’s most sentimental
possessions has a family at odds.
The sister-in-law (SIL) took to Reddit’s
“Am I the A******” forum to figure out if
she should give her family heirlooms away.
The bride is married to the woman’s half-brother.
After borrowing jewelry from her sister-in-law
for her wedding, she now expects to keep it.
The 17-year-old cherishes the jewelry because
it’s all she really has left of her mother. “My mom died
when I was 6, so I don’t have many memories with her”.
The bride borrowed
several pieces for the wedding. Then
afterward she demanded to keep them all.
The bride and half-brother felt entitled to the
jewelry because they are having a daughter.
“They’re calling me a selfish
a****** since my niece won’t have any
inherited jewelry from her paternal family” .
Reddit was happy to validate the girl’s
decision to keep her mother’s jewelry.
“That is your property and they have no
right to demand you give it to them.
That is ridiculous,” one user commented
