She finds out he has a secret son he’s never met – how can she see him in the same way now?
The Truth Comes Out
The couple, who have been married for several years and recently welcomed a baby boy of their own, were attending a family gathering when the truth came to light.
The husband’s father made a remark about his sons having three boys, which sparked an uncomfortable silence.
Little did she know, this seemingly innocent comment would uncover a hidden secret.
Something Is Off
“I looked at my husband and he looked like he had seen a ghost,” she revealed. “It was as if everyone in the room knew something I didn’t.”
Feeling suspicious and unable to resist her curiosity, she resorted to snooping, hoping to find evidence of her husband’s lies.
To her surprise, she found nothing wrong, but she couldn’t shake off the feeling that there was more to the story.
Searching for Answers
Seeking answers, she turned to her mother-in-law, who inadvertently spilt the beans.
With tears in her eyes, she confessed her knowledge to her mother-in-law, who offered an unexpected response.
“Oh honey, there is nothing wrong with an addition to the family…even if he is a bit older,” her mother-in-law revealed.
The mention of the child’s age caught her off guard.
The Son Was Not Acknowledged
It turns out, her husband fathered a child at the age of 17 but chose not to take responsibility.
The family recently reunited with the 23-year-old son, and they had been urging her husband to meet him.
Shockingly, her husband had kept this secret from her.
Confronting Her Husband
Emotions running high, she confronted her husband, expressing her desire to meet the long-lost son. But her husband’s response was one of anger and hesitation.
He claimed that he hadn’t yet met the child and wasn’t sure he wanted to.
This left her stunned and questioning her husband’s intentions.
She couldn’t help but wonder if he would someday reject their own son, as he seemed reluctant to be involved with this one.
“I want to meet my son’s brother and foster a relationship with him, just like I do with my other stepson,” she declared, seeking support and guidance from the Reddit community.
A Huge Thing to Hide
Reddit users were quick to show support to the wife, with this user warning her about what else the husband might be doing behind her back, “Honestly, this is a BIG thing for him to hide from you. what else is he hiding and can you be 1000% sure he isn’t hiding something else?”
In a shocking twist this user slams the wife for making it all about her, “You don’t spare one single thought about the actual kid. Meeting YOU is not his priority- he hasn’t even met his own FATHER yet.
It is valid to be angry your husband lied to you and never treated this son well – but to force a meet up in such a delicate situation that really isn’t about you? That’s not a valid ask.”
