Life can sometimes be hard on any of us, not to mention it could be unpredictable to the point it changes our paths forever. This story posted on Reddit shares how one person had many girls since his teenage years, and he managed to have four kids from three different partners by the age of 28. As this person’s sister explained, he did not care about any of the kids and thought they were accidents, simply put. Talking about life’s unpredictable twists, the careless dad finally settled with a girlfriend he had for three years in a row. He proposed to her, and that is when it all went bananas. The same night, his sister mentioned his offspring, and it became apparent his fiancee had no clue about any of them. Needless to say, a scandal followed between the man and his new fiancee.
Worried that she did something wrong, the sister asked Reddit if she was to blame. We understand her confusion, but we agree with the majority of people who commented on her topic. She is not to blame for sure. Some of the most relevant comments on this particular matter are posted below. You can read the whole discussion on Reddit.
Here is how everything started:
She basically thought that her brother wouldn’t be long with that girl, but she was wrong.
They had a plan to marry and get engages, but she told something that her brother’s future fiance didn’t know.
And here is how people reacted and expressed their opinion:
1. The period
We agree with this post completely, and it is true that not telling your future wife something this important for three years is not a good thing to do.
2. The choice
The father is not right to say that it is his choice only. His future wife plans to commit to him, meaning that she has every right to know about this.
3. The favor
We are not sure if she would turn her back on him for not telling her such an important thing, but we know that she may consider leaving him after that.
4. The member
This is a true example of what would have happened later in the couple’s life together, and we guess that nobody should keep such things secret.
5. The matter
Even if the brother was determined not to tell about this, he had to warn his sister about his intentions and ask her not to spoil everything.
6. The kids
Imagine finding someone you care for and getting married to them, and later discovering they had four children from three women before you.
7. The piece of work
Having fun while in your youth and not wanting to settle is understandable, but having four kids you never wanted to have is something huge.
8. The engagement
We could not agree more with this post, and you can see why. Some people are determined to hide such important things for as long as they can.
9. The time
Not telling such a secret is as close to lying to your partner, and we could all agree that the fiancee had every right to feel betrayed by this person.
10. The plan
There are more aspects to this story that are wrong. Apart from not telling his fiancee about the kids, he proposed knowing she wanted kids and clearly didn’t.
11. The minor secret
It seems that this person was furious after reading the topic, and this post is spot on. This is not a minor secret, of course. It is the biggest one you could have.
12. The info
The majority of people on Reddit support the sister for doing what she did. She had no clue that she had to never reveal the truth behind her brother’s past.
13. The woman
We think that the woman referred to as Natalie would have been devastated to find out about this year into her marriage with this person.
14. The liar
Lying to this person was simply a huge no-no, but the father obviously had no intention of revealing the truth and had no problem with deceiving Natalie.
15. The correct behavior
This post shares a different kind of problem. The brother and the parents would probably never forgive the sister for doing what she did.
16. The shaming
This person wanted to state something we also thought about, and we really think the parents need to be shamed for taking their son’s side about this.
17. The couple
A couple needs to be together only if both people have similar goals, intentions, and desires. In this case, the man obviously had different intentions.
18. The deception
Yes, the brother did try to deceive his new fiancee, and he had been lying to her for three years straight. We know that some people out there have done similarly awful things.
19. The parents
We know that this is a different view of the situation, but there is no telling just how many parents often take the wrong side when there is a conflict between their kids.
20. The awareness
Many people marry young and shortly after they meet someone they fall in love with, but you can see that people sometimes have huge secrets.
21. The girls
This is true, and we think that the sister who revealed the secret had sympathy for Natalie and she did not want her to suffer when she found out about it.
22. The mentioning
This was not just about failing to mention something, but intentionally hiding a huge secret that your future spouse just had to know about.
23. The woman
No woman should be put in a situation where she finds out her future husband had four kids he kept secret from her for three years.
24. The details
There are many details related to this story, and we know that the fact he lied to his future wife is the most important of them all.
25. The future
We guess that this relationship had no future, at least not after such a huge secret was revealed. Most women would walk away after finding this out.
26. The engagement
Sure enough, the sister ruined the engagement, but there are things that need to be done. This was the right thing, even if it was unintentional.
27. The secret
We think that the sister would have never agreed to keep the kids a secret from her brother’s fiancee, and we wouldn’t have done it, either.
28. The experience
This person decided to tell things as they are, and we believe that they revealed the reason for this tough situation – the brother’s lack of responsibility.
29. The marriage
We agree that people who hide such things from their future spouses would not make the best partners, as they will probably hide a lot more things in the future.
30. The step mother
This is absolutely true, and we never want to imagine what it would be like to become the step-parent of kids you never know existed before.
31. The attachment
The fiancee was about to become legally attached to this person, and that would have been a mistake. We guess that hiding four kids from your future wife is preposterous.
32. The hero
Most people on Reddit who decided to share their thoughts on this matter sympathize with the sister for not letting the fiancee fall into a trap.
33. The parents
Some people cannot believe the whole situation, and they seem to put the blame on the parents and the brother combined.
34. The karma
Here is an outlook of the situation that we completely agree with. The brother finally decided to settle with someone, but his actions in the past got the better of him.
35. The kids
The brother had to reveal everything as soon as he felt things would become serious, but he obviously didn’t do it.
