A woman who met her partner and now fiancé in a tabletop role-play group two years ago was preparing stuff for their upcoming wedding when she discovered something that broke her heart: he’s her half-brother!
According to the woman who shares her story on Reddit, she and her partner had hit it off immediately. They enjoyed a fun-filled romance and she especially admired his close-knit family who readily accepted her with loving arms, too.
It was a dream come true for the woman who goes by the handle ooopcest (OC) on Reddit. After all, she was the product of a broken family whose father was always absent. Getting accepted by her would-be husband’s family was truly a wonderful thing.
But just weeks before their wedding, OC and her would-be mother-in-law were working on wedding invitations when the older woman mentioned that her husband is not really the real father of OC’s fiancé but his stepfather.
OC didn’t mind that, of course, but she nearly fainted when she asked to see the photo of her fiancé’s real dad – because it was her dad, too!
“I don’t know how I kept from screaming and stayed conscious. I excused myself from the room and promptly threw up. I’m pretty sure she [future MIL] thinks I’m pregnant now; which is just a whole other can of worms unleashed,” she recalled.
What pained OC most was when she tried to break the news to her sweetheart – only to learn that he had known about it the previous year but didn’t think it was such a big deal, especially considering they had specifically planned on not having kids.
Amazingly, more Redditors were concerned about trust issues between OC and her fiancé over the fact that they were actually siblings in a relationship! They believe that the fiancé keeping the big secret from her for over a year rang more bells and that she should break up with him because of that – and not just because he’s her brother.
Hmmmm. What do you think about this?
