"AITA? I planned a last minute gender reveal, got the tests Monday and had my mom put something together for Sunday. I told my husband to tell his family which would be his brother aunt and cousin in driving distance and forgot. Well me and his cousin have been friends long before I got married and his aunt is upset at me for not personally inviting them saying aren’t I supposed to be her friend?. I messaged them both apologizing neither even bothered to open the message. The only people at the gender reveal were my mom and two of my friends it wasn’t anything big at all and planned in less than a week I could understand feeling left out but to this point? I’m not sure what to do as I said sent two long messages to his aunt and cousin and now since they made him feel bad he’s saying I don’t care about his family."
