He Upset His Brother After Telling Their Parents Not To Buy His New Wife An Expensive Traditional Wedding Gift That Costs Between $40,000 To $50,000

But there’s one thing he won’t help his brother with – his wedding gift. While he was recently out to dinner with his girlfriend and his mom for her birthday, his girlfriend commented on a pretty necklace his mom was wearing.

Then, his mom started talking about how in their culture, it’s traditional for the groom’s family to gift their new daughter-in-law a set of expensive jewelry on the morning of the wedding as a present.

It’s a big deal, as these jewelry sets cost between $40,000 and $50,000. His mom told his girlfriend she had already picked out the set she would give her when they get married.

“My girlfriend was honored [and] then asked if my mom picked out one yet for [my] sister-in-law since their wedding was coming [up],” he recalled.

“My mom said no and that she was going to meet with the jewelers soon to see what they have to offer.”

That’s when he intervened and asked why his parents would even bother following through with that expensive tradition, considering his brother’s fiancée had rejected all their other traditions for their wedding. He said he wouldn’t be chipping in and suggested that his parents give them a toaster instead.

After dinner, he received an angry phone call from his brother and future sister-in-law. Their parents had decided not to gift them expensive jewelry. His brother told him that they’d all be uninvited if he didn’t convince his parents to change their minds about the gift. 

Was he wrong to suggest his parents get his future sister-in-law a different gift, or is his brother overreacting?
