Q: My sibling won’t come to my wedding because she refuses to get over an old feud between us. I am hurt, and don’t know what to tell her to convince her to come.
E: I am sorry to hear of your woes. It is never fun when you fight with your siblings. Perhaps you could tell your sibling just how much it would mean to you for them to be there. If you haven’t already, maybe you should extend an apology to them to apologize for anything you may have done wrong to make them not want to come. All tension can be resolved with a little love and forgiveness.
D: Bah, who cares! I have not seen a single one of my siblings since I was but a mere 8 weeks old, and do you see me worrying about them and whether they join in my affairs? Why would you want to be stuck with someone for the rest of your life anyway? You humans and your strange affection for family and marriage. I will never understand it. I say do without the wedding altogether, and your problem will cease to exist.
