What's your secret?
Every family has its secrets. Sometimes they’re pretty mild. Uncle Carl didn’t get his limp from the war, he got it from falling down the stairs when he was drunk. Sometimes those secrets are pretty horrible. People are arrested and sent to death row, and their family remains quiet, hoping that no one will find out. These Redditors finally spilt their secrets to the world. It’s just too much pressure to keep them hidden. And here’s what they had to say. What’s your deepest, darkest family secret?
We found a picture of two great aunts arm in arm with Hitler. We also have a signed photograph of Mussolini (Conte_Vincero)
“Hey Mama, can you dig out the pic with your aunts and Hitler real quick? I wanna post it on the internet.” (roadkilled_skunk)
A Fresh Start
That my great great great grandpa left England for America and was supposed to send money for them to come over, but he never did. He just started a new family in America. (jakash)
Found out my father had a secret family and that we were it – his wife and kids don’t know about us to this day. Also found out a while later that an uncle had an ex wife and kids he kept quiet about too. (hadasamatter)
When my great grandmother was 14, she and a friend snuck out to go to an army base to party. My great grandfather, a 39 year old officer got her pregnant. He married her to save face. They had 4 kids total, but he treated her more like a very spoiled daughter than a wife. When he was 70 he had a stroke, she made him a special “medicine” and accidentally poisoned him. She was investigated for murder, but was found innocent. (SaguaroMommie)
