Most of us have heard the story of how our parents met.
Whether it’s at a coffee shop or in a classroom, many children love learning about how their parents fell in love and started a family.
One woman said she was horrified to find out how her parents’ relationship began.
Post to RedditThe woman explained that she was getting ready for her own wedding when her parents decided to tell her their love story — a story they believed was “romantic”.
“Short story, my dad was married to someone else, and they tried to get pregnant but couldn’t.
“He started an affair with my mother – who worked with him and knew about his wife and they were trying to get pregnant – and my mother became pregnant with me.
“When this happened, my father left his ex-wife and married my mother,” the woman explained.
The daughter was shocked: both the story itself and her parents’ indifference about what had happened.
“I know they met at work, but I don’t know anything about it.
“I blew up with them and told them they were horrible people, and a few hours later I texted them that I was kicking them out of my wedding.”
However, the parents initially thought their daughter would understand and told her she was overreacting.
“I don’t know if I made the right choice. They are good parents.
“Honestly, I wouldn’t even care if they admitted they hurt people or acted guilty. But they’re bragging about how literally ‘romantic’ it is.
“And now I can’t stop thinking about the poor woman my father left behind, and how I was part of the reason it all happened.”
Although the woman’s fiancé has told her to try and forgive them, she says she can’t see them the same anymore.
