A Redditor had shared a story about the infidelity he experienced, on the Reddit’s “relationship_advice” subreddit. The man had shared that he was 20 years old when he had a one night stand with the mother of his son.
After they found out that the woman was pregnant, they decided to start a relationship, and later married. As OP had some suspicions about his wife’s pregnancy, he never talked about it, and accepted that he was the father. OP learned that the woman was pregnant when he was in military service, and few months later, when he returned, he proposed.
OP shared, “I grew up in a home without a dad and never wanted that.” So he wanted to be there if he was going to be a father.
As 12 years passed, OP was still married to his wife. He explained that even though they are “extremely volatile and rocky” OP wanted to stay in their marriage for his son. “Our marriage is dead outside of our child.” OP said.
As he saw one of his old friends, at the time he experienced the story, OP’s friend asked that if he was still together with his wife. Then the friend said, “it was crazy I dated her and then you stole her from me!” As OP wanted from his friend to explain what he meant, the friend said, “it’s no big deal but I was seeing her up until that weekend you met her.”
At that moment, OP’s mind was made, as he was going to take a DNA test. He used the test on his son without talking with his wife. The Redditor learned that he was not the father. As OP was devastated with the result, he shared, “I don’t know how to act or feel. I’m just a zombie right now.”
On the other hand, as he raised the 12-year-old boy, OP said that he is his son, no matter what. The Redditor explained that he will never abandon his son. “Absolutely nothing will change that.” the devastated man shared.
