Incestuous relationships are often considered to be immoral, taboo, and illegal in many countries. One of the main reasons incest is frowned upon is because it can lead to genetic abnormalities and health issues in any offspring that may be produced.
A man just discovered his marriage was actually an incestuous relationship. Here’s what happened.
Man discovers his wife of six years is actually his sister
When a man learned that his wife of six years and the mother of his children is actually his sister, his life was completely turned upside down.The man claimed that because of closed adoption, he was adopted shortly after birth and has no knowledge of his biological parents.
The man recently underwent tests to determine whether he could donate a kidney to his wife.
He wrote on Reddit, “Just after our son was born, my wife fell ill and is now in need of a kidney transplant. None of her relatives were a good match or donor, according to our inquiry.” The post seems to have been removed from the site.
He stated: “I made the decision to get tested to see if I could donate even though I knew it would be unlikely. The other day I received a call informing me that I was a match. After that, the doctor made a comment about wanting to conduct additional research because of data from the tissue HLA (human leukocyte antigen) test results. I agreed without giving it much thought.”The man received the test results and discovered that his wife and he had a “abnormally high match percentage.”
The couple also had kids together, devoid of any genetic disorders
They are not only married but also have kids. He went on, “I was astounded and perplexed. He explained that due to the way DNA information is passed down through generations, siblings could have a match of 0% to 100% and parents and children could have at least a 50% match. A high match as husband and wife was unusual. What does that mean, I questioned.”
He added, “We are related—I’m not joking. Although I am unsure of what to do next, I am aware that it might be incorrect. My wife and the mother of our children, she is.”To deal with the situation, he asked for advice from others. Many people came forward with suggestions.
“I guess there isn’t much point in blowing up entire worlds at this point since you are already married with kids and can’t go back on that,” wrote a user, as per reports.
One more wrote, “You already have children, and since you didn’t mention any bizarre abnormalities, it is assumed that they are all healthy. If you’re content, you’re content. Continue being wonderful parents to your kids by giving the kidney to your sister-wife.”Another said, “There’s no point changing it; everything has been great for so long.”
