This is a question Family Feuds

Pooster tells us that a relative was once sent to the shops to buy an onion, while the rest of the family went on a daytrip while he was gone. Meanwhile, whole sections of our extended kin still haven't got over a wedding brawl fifteen years ago – tell us about families at war.

Ho hum
My grandmother is 93, my great aunt is 96.

In 1930 (or so) my great-aunt had a rather shotgun marriage to a young gentleman. My grandmother didn't really disapprove of her pregnancy, but rather of the feckless fellow she got hitched too. Granny and great-aunt had a falling out at the reception, tempers rose, things were said and when my great-grandfather committed suicide a few years later my grandma sort of blamed it on the stress of having to deal with a layabout son-in-law. They haven't spoken for 79 years. Its only because my dad keeps in contact that we have ever met my great-aunt. Oh and we can't tell my grandma that we see her now and then. She still goes on about it - "ruddy cheek" et.c.

79 years over an argument at a wedding? Seems a little excessive to me...
