Man's Brother Got His Ex Pregnant, He Refuses To Go To Their Baby's Gender Reveal Party

Gender reveal parties have caused a lot of drama in the past few years. People are starting to realize that parents go way too hard when sharing the gender of their unborn child. People get roasted for celebrating something that really isn't much of an accomplishment anyway. Your child was bound to show up as one or the other, whether or not you fill a balloon with pink or blue confetti.

This gender reveal party is even more contentious, however. A man's ex-girlfriend cheated on him with his brother and they are now having a child. This guy is asking on Reddit's 'Am I The A-Hole' page if he is in the wrong for not wanting to attend their pointless baby shower.

    It was Reddit user u/ClearAsk616 who does not feel like going to celebrate his brother and ex-girlfriend as they enter this next big chapter of their lives. The whole situation already seems very sticky, and this is only the title.

    Font - My brother "Adam" is 32M. Cassie, his girlfriend/ my ex girlfriend is 22F, I'm 23M. I dated "Cassie" for two years, right after graduating. We had been close friends throughout high school. Her and my brother had met a handful of times but he joined the military at 18 so he was only home when he was on leave.

    The two of them dated for two whole years. So she is really a true ex-girlfriend. Isn't there some kind of bro-code between brothers? As for the girl, why would you want to keep in in the family? This gives me 'Sweet Home Alabama' vibes.

    Smile - Two years ago, my brother was staying home for a few weeks after a deployment and i caught Cassie cheating on me with him. We broke up and she almost immediately began dating my brother.

    Font - Font - After a few months they moved in together and my mom and the rest of my family basically just ignored the fact that Cassie and I had ever dated. My mom gave me shit every time I wouldn't come to a dinner or something they were at. I've since moved on, but it's still weird whenever I see them together so I try to avoid it.

    Font - Font - Not long ago they announced they were having a baby. Which is great, I wish them and their kid the best. They're having a baby shower/gender reveal today that the whole family was invited to and my mom just called me to ask when l'll be there and I told her I wasn't going. She told me if I don't have a legitimate reason not to go l'm being an asshole because this is my niece or nephew and in a few years l'll regret not letting everything be water under the bridge.

    Font - Font - tftrivenisop · 9h Oh my god, so NTA. Your family seem like they don't care about your mental health at all. You brother slept with your at the time girlfriend and you should be the bigger person? Hell no. Don't put yourself in an uncomfortable for you position, because of all that "blood is thicker that water" bullcrap. G Reply 4 1.3k 3 ...

    Font - Font - chinesisch · 9h NTA! Your brother AND EXGF are TA, not you. They forgot you were FAMILY/BF before hooking up. Its different if you were broken up and THEN they got together, but the way they did it, thats kind of the ultimate betrayal. G Reply 1 331 ...

    Font - Font - that-bro-joshy · 9h Asshole Enthusiast [7] NTA You're entitled to your feelings and you're handling better then most people would, your brother and Cassie are the A-holes and if your mother (or anyone else) can't see that then it just sums them up. Stick to your guns, your feelings are just as valid as anyone else's. G Reply 1 161 3

    Font - Font - neutralgood079 · 8h Partassipant [2] Nope NTA. Great family though. Just brushing off the fact that your brother slept with your gf. Really great family there. I don't give it long before they fall apart too. Might as well stay out of the mess. But you need some boundaries so you don't have to be guilt tripped into ever associating with them. "Sorry that I don't want to see my ex gf and the guy she cheated on me with"-should do nicely. Wash rinse repeat every time your mom brings i
