A woman was left devastated after she learned her husband and the father of her children had been carrying out an affair with her mum for more than two decades.
If there's two people you could probably expect to count on in life, it's your husband and your parents.
They're often with you through thick and thin, and that was definitely the case with one woman, who had been with her 39-year-old husband since they were both 15 years old.
The couple got pregnant with their first child when the woman was 17, so they decided to move in with her parents for support. Or so the woman thought.
They got married at 18 years old and went on to live in the woman's grandparents' home after they passed away. They welcomed four more children together, and the woman was convinced she had a 'good marriage'.
In a post on Reddit, she explained: "We were intimate more than twice a week, we went on date nights, we bought each other gifts, we didn't fight."
However, her entire world was turned upside down on New Year's Eve 2021, when she returned early from a girl's trip and walked into her bedroom to find her mum and her husband having sex.
"My mother screamed at me to get out of 'their' bedroom which really shook me up even more," the woman said.
When she confronted her husband, the wife learned that her mum had allegedly 'seduced' her partner when they were 18, after they'd moved in with them.
"They’d been having unprotected sex at least once a month for longer than we were married," the wife wrote.
But the horror didn't stop there, as she added: "I ran the math and was horrified, because the timeline meant my twin brothers and youngest brother could be my husband’s."
After the news came to light, the wife's dad insisted that a DNA test be carried out to determine whether her brothers were really his, or her husband's.
Unfortunately, the tests revealed that the woman's twin brothers are actually her husband's biological children.
"He got my mother pregnant less than a week after getting me pregnant and while I thought it was so cute and fun that I shared a pregnancy experience with my mom, she was carrying my children's half siblings," the wife wrote.
The woman also claimed the affair began after she and her husband had an argument, after which her mum 'comforted him and they had sex'.
"He loved it and then pursued her after that," she wrote. "He said he would’ve divorced me, but knew he’d get cut off from her and she was so much better at sex than me, so stuck it out with me."
The wife has since kicked her husband out of the house, while her mum has also been kicked out by her dad.
The woman says she's now developed health issues as a result of the stress, and she's also attended therapy to help her deal with the events that unfolded.
After sharing her story on the sub-Reddit 'True Off My Chest', the wife was met with support from dozens of commenters who assured her she was 'so strong'.
