After a man discovered that his wife had cheated on him, he did a DNA test on his children. It turned out one of his three children was not his. 


Things took a different turn when the DNA test results came out. The man had decided to abandon his wife and the son who didn't belong to him.

However, he contacted his son four years later, asking him to come back into his life. The 18-year-old boy was sure he didn't want to reconnect with his father after he had abandoned him based on a DNA test result.

The boy wrote a Reddit post under the username turnsoutinsane, narrating what had happened in his house. It all started four years ago when his father found out about his mother's affairs.

He knew she had cheated on him a few times in the past, but he forgave her every time. However, this time it was different because the affair had been going on for a long time. 

After learning when the affair started, the man suspected that his children might not be his. To clear his suspicions, he decided to get them DNA-tested.

The results revealed that two of his three children were his. OP (Original Poster) was the child whose DNA results showed his father was someone else. 

He shared that his mother had forgiven his father, and they were going out on a date.

OP revealed that his father divorced his mother after and moved out with his siblings. Other members of the family also stopped talking to him and his mother.

He recalled that his elder brother was very rude to him, while his mother was depressed because everyone had cut ties with her. 

But that was not the end of the story. Without sharing the reason behind it, OP revealed that he took another DNA test and discovered that the results of the first DNA test were erroneous and he was actually his father's biological son. 

When he told his mother and grandfather about it, they had different opinions. His mother wanted him to reconnect with his father, while his grandfather talked to a lawyer to see what could be done.

The boy had no plans of going back to his father. His brother kept calling him after learning about his DNA test results, but he didn't want to talk to him. And while his family members were pressuring him to reconcile with his father, his mother had forgiven his father, and they were going out on a date.  

He wrote a Reddit post to ask other people if it was wrong to tell his family that he didn't want to talk to his father. "You are under no obligation to anyone," Redditor therespectablejc replied, adding it was his choice if he didn't want to talk to his family. No one could force him otherwise.

Another Redditor named Golgi_Apparatuz agreed and shared that he went through something similar as a child, but he stood firm on his decision and didn't talk to his family members.  "Your self-care comes first, always," the Redditor wrote.

Meanwhile, OP wrote another post sharing something he had never expected to happen. He explained:

"The lab didn't make a mistake on my results. What they did is they MIXED the results of all children."

Everyone in the family was shocked to learn that it was OP's elder brother who wasn't his father's biological son despite resembling him the most.  However, the brother planned to get another DNA test to confirm this. 

plshelpimamess asked OP if his father kicked his brother out after discovering the truth. He replied that he had moved away from his family, so he didn't have any updates. His grandfather told him about the lab test results, and he was pleased to find out about it.

Most Redditors felt his father shouldn't have abandoned him after getting the DNA test results. They appreciated OP for not talking to his father.

Questions to Ponder:

Do you think OP's father was at fault?


Do you think the man should have abandoned his 14-year-old son after learning he was not his biological child? Since his wife was at fault for cheating on him, punishing the child for her mistake seemed unfair. Most people might agree that he shouldn't have abandoned OP.

Do you think his father should kick his brother out after knowing that the lab had mistakenly swapped their results?

If the man treated his children alike, he should abandon OP's elder brother after learning he wasn't his child. It isn't clear if he kicked him out, but most Redditors felt it would be fair if the man did that. What do you think?
