Be very careful what kind of gifts you buy your significant other. Especially if that gift involves DNA and tracing their family history.
A woman recently revealed that her entire world was turned upside down after she bought her husband a DNA kit for his birthday in order to trace his family history. The couple had grown up in the same small town with each other and thought it would be really cool to see what the family tree looked like.
Well, turns out the family tree looks really close since the kit revealed that the woman's husband is actually her cousin. The results have ended up "poisoning" her marriage as the couple struggled to come to terms with the fact that they're related and have a two-year-old son together.
To make matters even more confusing, the couple now suspects that this revelation could mean the husband's father was unfaithful to his wife. She added: "His parents have been married for 30 years and my husband has always held his mother close to sainthood."
The woman is afraid to bring it up to the family and her husband refuses to speak to her about it. They are now sleeping in separate bedrooms.
