  • Bustyodust: My great grandmother wasn’t actually Mexican but rather was adopted by a Mexican family from a Chinese family who was being kicked out of Mexico when railroad construction was over. She always had more typically Asian features but only spoke spanish and it was never really questioned. 23 and me is a hell of a thing.
  • Tobepacific:   In the 1970s a dead girl was found on my grandpa’s property. Everyone including the local police just assumed she was in with a bad crowd and murdered by drug dealers.

In the 90s, some of his grandkids came forward about all the molestation. After that, people started to realize grandpa probably killed that girl.

  • Yeshelloitsme:  My fathers brother killed 4 girls when he was in high school. My father was the one who found out and told the police.
  • Madame_ F: When I was 5 years old (1988), Santa Clause left a Nintendo on our front porch. It was wrapped in newspaper, and my parents had no idea who gifted it to us. My dad, particularly, tried to figure it out. He was always suspicious that it had been a family friend. It was by far the best gift of the year, and we played it all the time throughout our childhood.

My dad died in 2004.

Last Christmas, my mom explained that she was the one who had bought it and surreptitiously placed it on the porch. My dad really liked to be in control of things and had forbidden the purchase. She knew better. She didn’t tell a soul for 30 years.

Thanks Mom

  • Voice_of_craisin- My cousin is actually my sister.  Apparently my mom got pregnant really young and her much older sister adopted my sister and raised her as her own.  It was actually an amazing moment when we found out.  My cousin (sister) and the sister I was raised with and I are really really close.  Just happened last year.  We’re all old now (I’m 50 and my cousin/sister is 58) so it’s just a really neat thing that makes us all happy.
  • Amendris:  After my mom died I found out the real story behind my parent’s marriage. She came to my father’s country to visit some of her relatives. Met my father and after just one week she asked him to marry her so she could stay in the country. My father accepted because he had noone else and his parents were pressing him to get married already. But the highlight of the story is that over some time, the two of them fell in love with each other. Their love only grew over the time and they were really happy together. My mother spent her last days very ill, and she would accept only my father by her bedside. He swears to this day that she was an angel sent from god to take care of him. I am shocked that they got married just like that, out of the blue and ended up loving each other so so so deeply. I can only hope to have as good and loving marriage as they had.

HiEdit: I had no idea my parents little secret would touch so many people! Thank you all, it means a lot!

Reddit family secret 7-9

  • Roo1ster: About a month ago, my mother-in-law’s 88 year old sister revealed on her death bed that her husband’s best friend was actually the father of all 4 of her children.  Her husband was an abusive grade A jerk by all accounts.  While everyone was shocked, no one was saddened by this news.  Yes – he contacted with all 4 “children” (youngest is in his 50s) within hours of her passing. Also, one of the son’s first comments was “Is that why he gave me his old car when I needed one back in college?”
  • Icosotc: One week before my younger sister’s wedding, my dad decided to call myself, both my sisters, and my mother (his ex-wife) to meet at his house for something “very important he needed to tell us.” We all thought he had cancer or something. We were very worried. Once we were all there, he sobbingly confessed to having a 5 year old son living in the town next to ours, which means the kid was conceived and born while my parents were still married. He claimed he didn’t know for sure that the kid was his, and he had only recently gotten a DNA test, He showed us a picture of our half-brother. He looks EXACTLY like my dad. My mother was devastated.
  • Fuhnetically: This is years ago, and I only got a few rough details, but my baby mama’s dad wound up getting caught in a sting trying to purchase a teenage girl. He had a separate apartment all set up, transferred the funds and when he went to the “delivery” meet, was arrested by the feds.

reddit family secret 10-13

  • Notseriousatall:  A buddy of mine met a girl at a bar. They totally hit it off. He told his parents about her and his Dad took him outside and told him not to date her because she was his half sister.
  • Coconut lemongrass: When I was in my early 20s I got a very distressed call from my mother.It turns out my uncle (married for many years and father of 3 adult children) was in the hospital for trying to commit suicide.He had tried to commit suicide by overdosing on his antidepressants.He was on antidepressants because he was depressed that he was HIV+.He was HIV+ because he had been having sex with male sex workers.Everything was kept hush hush and my uncle and aunt remain married to this day, 10+ years later. I don’t have contact with my family anymore for other reasons so I haven’t seen my uncle for over 5 years but I’m glad HIV medications have come such a long way.
  • Skatora: I’ve got two: (1.) My uncle sexually molested his sisters (my mom, my 4 aunts), when they were between the ages of 9 – 16. He did the same thing to my cousins (his own effing daughters and sons) when they were that same age. He was also a religious leader in his church, sooo… Who knows how many more victims he had.

(2.) My grandfather “started a business” in Mexico, and he moved down there (while staying married to my grandmother). He never allowed anyone to visit, because “it was too dangerous.” Yeah…. He married some Mexican chick and started a new family (had 3 more kids). We didn’t find out until after he died, when his son reached out to tell us the news.

  • Notyetaserielkiller:  I found out when I was 12 that my dad wasn’t my biological father. I was around 14 when I learned my aunt’s deceased husband used to abuse her. I was around 18 when I learned my mother had told my dad’s mom that my grandfather molested her and my aunts.

Edit: For clarification, my mom met my dad while already pregnant with me. She didn’t cheat. My biological dad was an on-again off-again fling

Also, my grandfather was my mom’s dad. My mom told my dad’s mom about it, who told me after my mom passed

the end i will write a full background of what happened.

just know the story was passed to me by mouth i wasnt there
