There’s an unwritten rule in society. That you should always be on your family’s side of an argument, divorce, breakup, fight or anything else that involves two sides.
But what if you knew your family member was in the wrong?
Ever heard the saying, ‘Mind your own beeswax’? Well, when your sibling is in the wrong, we’d recommend staying far far away from those bees and their wax. But a Reddit user, by the name of brotherconfessedchea isn’t so sure.
She has taken to the internet to ask us intelligent online folk what to do in her… sticky situation. Her brother is currently going through a divorce, but he just confessed to his sister that he has had an affair…
“My brother and his wife are going through a divorce. They’ve been married for five years and have two kids. However, during the past year, things have been absolutely sh*t for them. They’re marriage started breaking down, they were always fighting and shouting,” the Reddit user wrote.
“Recently they announced they were getting a divorce, and are going through divorce proceedings currently. From the way things seem, it looks like they will split assets 50/50 and have shared custody over the children,” she continued.
It all sounds very amicable. Concious uncoupling kind of vibe. Nice neatly wrapped divorce story. (As far as divorce stories go). But then she and her brother decided to get alcohol involved. We all know that's never going to leave things uncomplicated and mess free...
After a night out drinking at the pub, the sister and brother walked home and crashed on the couch. The Reddit user believes her brother was slightly more intoxicated than she was. They started to talk about deep stuff. You know the kind of drunk where it goes beyond funny antics to 'how we came to be in this world' type conversation.
