For many people, the idea of having two major events scheduled for the same day is an absolute nightmare.

That nightmare has turned into a reality for one man who is feeling extremely conflicted after his best friend’s funeral was scheduled for the same day as his sister’s wedding.

He’s 28-years-old and has found himself in a very difficult position. In two weeks, his 30-year-old sister will be getting married, and he will be one of her future husband’s groomsmen.

However, in the middle of all the wedding excitement, tragedy struck, and his childhood best friend, Alex, passed away unexpectedly.

“His funeral has been scheduled for the same day as my sister’s wedding,” he revealed.

“Alex and I were like brothers. We grew up together, went to the same schools, and he was the best man at my wedding last year. Losing him has been devastating, and I feel a strong need to be there to say goodbye and support his family, who are like a second family to me.

When I told my sister about the conflict, she was upset and said I needed to prioritize family.”

His sister told him that he could find another way to pay his respects to Alex and that missing her wedding would ruin their relationship. His parents are siding with his sister and said that family comes first, and Alex would have understood if he needed to miss the funeral.

“On the other hand, my wife and several friends think I should go to the funeral, as Alex was a significant part of my life, and this is my last chance to say goodbye,” he explained.
