Married Couple Takes DNA Test, Discovers They’re First Cousins, Confront Family Who Kept It A Secret
Another time you’re glad to be never-married and celibate. No chance of this happening.
Speaking of which, a Redditor recently shared a story of how he ended up figuring the latter out by simply gifting his wife a DNA test kit.
… While DNA tests are great gifts, they can turn on you and point out that the person you married is actually a cousin or something
Reddit user u/PM_MeMyPassword recently went to the TIFU, or Today I Effed Up, subreddit with quite a unique story.
So, both OP and his wife grew up in a small town in the South. Both of their families have been living there for quite some time now.
Both of these lovely individuals also had previous marriages and 3 kids each from those marriages, and there are no plans for any more now that they are together.
Last year OP got his wife an Ancestry DNA kit as a gift. Apparently, she wanted to know more about her European roots, and her sister decided to do the same.
In this case, that is exactly what happened to this man, leading to his now-viral post on the TIFU subreddit
