An uncle is in hot water with his sister after refusing to lie to his nine-year-old niece that he will be marrying his pregnant girlfriend. The couple is committed and excited about the baby, but doesn't want to get the government involved—much to his sister's chagrin. He wrote on "Am I The A**hole?":
My girlfriend and I (28&29) have been together 9 years, just found out we’re going to have a baby. We are very excited, have been trying for almost six months so this is huge for us. My sister and niece came over to our house a few days back, they already knew since we told everyone else already.
