These 23 People Found Out Shocking Secrets About Family Members


I have a brother from another mother. When my parents were young, they were one of those couples who would constantly break up and get back together. Once, when they were broken up, my Dad got another woman pregnant. The baby was given up for closed adoption. All I know is that I have a half brother somewhere out there, ten years my senior.


My dad is a straight man. Everyone in the family assumed he fell somewhere on the LGBTQ spectrum but he had to marry mom for appearance sake back in the ’60s. We were wrong. No Transparent shenanigans for us. He fooled around on mom with another woman.


My great grandfather was a horrible gambler. He was always losing money. In order to pay it back he “lent” out his daughters, he had 5 of them. They would do “wife” duties for the men who he owed money. It could be anything from making dinner, cleaning the house or having sex. I dont know for sure when it started but it ended when my grandmother was 8 and she was the youngest, the oldest was 17.
