She moved in with me right after high school and she’ll be starting college next year. She’s very introverted and extremely quiet. Her body language says it all about her self-esteem. She walks sometimes looking down and most of the her is not fully erect but a little bent over forward, sorry if it doesn’t make sense English is not my first language.
The thing is, we were both physically punished by mom. When I was 13 she sort of stopped but kept abusing my sister, let’s call her Julie. Mom used to hit us for anything, not doing chores, not doing them right, not doing enough chores, getting a bad grade. She was also possessive of us and would almost never let us play with other kids. One day I came home to our mother whipping Julie with a power cord she cut out just to hit us with it. That was too much for 13 year old me and it left an awful raw wound in her shoulder.
Right after high school Julie wanted to move out and came home with me. It’s not ideal because one of us has to sle... keep reading on reddit ➡
Life always finds a way to surprise you.
After a DNA test, I was connected to a half-sister. We both grew up with married parents and (up until now) were under the impression they are biological parents on both sides. We both have one sibling each. Not sure how this happened, but my guess, it's most likely an affair. Her and I both also lost our fathers (hers 15yrs ago, mine last year).
I'm assuming that if I ask questions someone will get hurt or shamed (infidelity is never fun). On the other hand, maybe our parents know and just aren't sharing.
Does anyone have an experience like this? Did you ask your family about it? Was the drama and emotions it created worth it? Not sure if I should just let it be or try to seek answers... Not just answers, but maybe we would want to be in each other's lives?
My half-sister's sister is planning on taking a test as well. We're hoping it will at least shed some light if it's my father we both share or hers.
Background: Bad blood began 4+ years ago when we rented a property we owned to half-sister (sister) and "brother-in-law" ("BIL") (they were not then and are still not married now).
Within 6 months (their lease term) they and their numerous pets (which were NOT included in the lease) trashed the place so thoroughly that it took us 2 weeks to clean up - including a 14ft. trailer full of large trash bags (think hoarders level). We also had evidence the "BIL" was using and growing illegal drugs on the property - obviously not OK per the lease.
We sent them a bill for the clean up, they didn't pay. We sent another, final bill - including notice it would be filed at small claims court within the month - and then sister paid the bill, but did not apologize. Sister paid because the lease was in her name and not "BIL's" - his parents wouldn't let him sign the lease.
Since then, sister has told several family members that they did apologize by paying the bill. Also, "BIL" has told sister in... keep reading on reddit ➡
AITA for not giving my half sister my kidney?
Hello Reddit, this is a throwaway for obvious reasons and I am on mobile.
So I (14M) was born from an affair between my mom and my dad. She already had a (1yrF/my half-sister). My dad didn’t know my mom was married when they started hooking up but when she got pregnant her husband found out and left her.
My mom was going to abort me but my dad paid her a lot if money.
She signed over rights and was not part of my life financially or emotionally. She just birthed me. I don’t blame her or hold men/ women who leave accountable.
Everyone from her side know about me however they don’t care.
Well, my mom and her husband got back together for my half-sister and my dad ended up starting a business and earning about 8 figures yearly.
My mom contacted my dad saying she wanted to get to know me better. I was skeptical and not sure because I didn’t really think about her often, but I decided I would meet her. I met up with her... keep reading on reddit ➡
My half sister has a weird obsession with me. She stalks me on my social media profile and acts like a deranged ex. I'm pretty popular on Instagram, where I also post my art, so making it private is not an option.
She is 17, and I haven't seen her in years. The last time I saw her, she was 12 and it was at my grandfather's funeral.
My biological father had an affair with one of my mum's friends when she was dying. It was sick and my poor mum found out about it 5 days before she passed away. The other woman was already pregnant with my half sister.
I was 15 and old enough to know what that meant. I refused to live with my dad (courts allowed it) and started living with my maternal grandparents. My 2 older siblings were in college and they haven't talked to him in years.
We chose to keep them out of my life and we like it that way.
Whenever I, my husband or my siblings make any sweet post, she literally spams the comments section with comments about us abandoning her and our b... keep reading on reddit ➡
Me and my sister share a car right now, and when I was driving home about 3 or 4 days ago I got into a minor accident that wasn't my fault. The car got completely totaled cause the axel got bent, I was fine and the other driver was fine but ow the only car that works (that we can drive) is my mom's which she takes to work, while we take the bus to our work.
My sister has been blaming me over and over for this accident, and I have had enough. I told her to knock it off but it just didn't work. She is technically my half sister (share the same dad) and my dad cheated on her mom with my mom and had me. Her biggest insult she always calls me is "divorce baby" and I hate it with a passion. Our relationship other than that is alright but if we are ever fighting or I piss her off she will start saying that over and over. I forgot what exactly happen but I know she called me the divorce baby who couldn't drive and I locked myself in my room for the rest of the night.

Ok so hear me out. My parents built a forever house 15 years ago, it’s a very big and beautiful house, worth about 6,000,000 Mexican pesos, about 1/4 million dls. Sadly, we only lived there together for a few years because my parents separated. My dad went to live by himself, same with me (now 25f), and my mom and my sister (now 24f) have been living together for about 8 years. My parents both agreed that my dad would finish paying the mortgage and then the house would be officially mine and my sister’s, and we should decide together if we keep it or if we sell it to buy apartments or for our weddings, things like that. I’m very grateful, my parents worked really hard to build it. But I would prefer to sell it and use the money to buy an apartment in a bigger city, since I hate our hometown, but my sister is a big sentimental nostalgic person and is very obsessed with living there when she gets married and has kids, that’s also fine.

The night prior, my half sister had called my dad to ask if she and her husband’s family could come over to enjoy our backyard and swim in the pool. He agreed.
My dad told me the plans the morning of. I was pretty annoyed with all this on short notice because both my parents were out that day and I was going to be the only one home. I also had a dental appointment for the same day so I couldn’t even properly host all these people. It felt like they dumped all of this on me.
“It’s only 3 hours max”, my dad told me.
For some background info, my brother in law is a creep. He’s known in the family for attempting to rape my other sister, and just being an all around pervert and asshole. He makes it uncomfortable for me to be around my sister and my nephews so I generally try to avoid them. Because of this, I’m not very close with them.
Anyways, the day comes and I luckily end up leaving for my dental appointment before anyone gets to my house. I come back after about 2 & a half hour... keep reading on reddit ➡
The title might be a bit confusing so I'll try to explain a bit better. Keep in mind I'm on mobile and English is my second language.
I'm a 22F currently living with my parents again due to the quarantine. I've been working from home in the room that my 24yo sister and I used to share when we were kids.
The house is quite small so whenever everyone is here it's a bit difficult for me to work since I have to be talking to my clients 89% of the time. When I told this to my parents they offered me an unfinished cottage (it's literally just the foundation and the walls) in the back of the house they had previously intended to turn into a 2 bedrooms 1 bathroom for me and my sister to share.
In the past we both worked to get it fixed but she didn't save enough money and wanted me to pay for it and she'd paid me back later on. My father advised me not to do it because she is known to be unstable financially. So we didn't and we left it like that.

Title says it all. I recently saw she kept liking and retweeting sexual abuse threads on twitter and finally saw one where it asked about your own experience and I saw her entire story and screenshotted it, when i confronted her about it she lied and said it wasn’t her which i quickly disproved and now with all the spotlight on her she confessed in front of me and my dad. We were livid my mom (who my dad divorced several years ago) has gone so far as to even tried to defend it saying they were young and didn’t know but now here I am a hour after the confrontation of me and my dad who I told to stay in the car as I knocked on his door pulled him out and we exchanged blows. I put him on a pedestal when i was younger thinking he was a special and kind person, but now I know everything and I made sure to tell everyone in the family to keep away from him and i couldn’t care less.

My older half-sister [27F] and I [24F] have different dads. Hers was an abusive deadbeat who left the picture, and didn't contact her until she was 16. He told her she had to choose between him and my dad. She chose her birth father. My dad is extremely wounded by her choice. He tells me how he feels he was never a good enough father because of her decision. It's been over a decade since she spoke to him, and he's missed out on her graduation, her wedding, and the birth of his granddaughter. It wasn't until this year that she started speaking to my dad again - and that's only to ask for money. Her birth father likes to regularly remind her that he will cut her off if he finds any communication between her and my dad.
A few weeks ago, I was Facetiming my dad at my sister's house with a couple of her friends. I Facetime him regularly, and my sister's never once bothered poking her head in and saying hi or anything. This was the first time her friends were there while I did this. My... keep reading on reddit ➡
My sister is two years older than me but we graduated from the same college a semester apart. She walked in April and I walked in June. The cap is gown is $50 and I asked to wear hers since we're the same size. She said yes but I'd have to pay her half.
Side note: whike in college, she needed a graphing calculator which cost $100+ and I let her use it for years free of charge. The previous semester I gave her my iclicker that was $50 because she needed one for a lecture hall class and I didn't need it anymore.
I thought her charging me was ridiculous so I decided to just buy my own. She was never going to wear it again anyway so idk why she didn't give it to me. Now my mom and sister think I'm the asshole for not "splitting the cost"
Sidsnote: we finished college at the same time, she told me last minute she was walking in the spring even though we both needed summer classes to graduate. I guess she wanted her own ceremony.
I recently was halving some coworkers by my apartment for drinks. Typically we go to bars, but we thought this would be safer.
Around 7 we’re coming by. 2 of them would be people who are my superiors. One is just a standard superior, nothing really special, but another was a huge superior. Like this guy could one day be on the C-Suite of our company that has over a trillion dollars in assets.
My 19 year old sister was visiting. I was already going to allow her to have drinks with us (this is the United States), but I told her she needs to at least dress conservatively (for example, I was in business casual). I mentioned to my boss she’d be joining us, and he didn’t mind, but when I got to my apartment with everyone, my sister was dressed not at all conservatively.
She was wearing that thing (idk what it’s called) that’s like this half shirt that cuts off right below her chest and those jean shorts that are so short the pockets come out the bottom.

Backstory:So I was the baby born from an affair, my bio dad left his wife and married my mom when she was pregnant with me. My dad had a daughter at that point who was 3, and she split time every other month and spring break at our place. My (half) sister HATED the divorce and she lashed out at her dad for awhile and just recently (maybe 3 years ago forgave him and my mom). But she has always HATED me, I was the "divorce baby" in her eyes. I don't remember this but my cousins told me that when I was a baby she refused to do anything with me and constantly screamed when I cried. My dad tried to make her stop but she never would.
Once I was able to start walking and talking and such things got BAD, she basically tormented me and treated me like her own punching bag. I didn't understand till I was older and we fought A LOT, my dad... keep reading on reddit ➡
My older half sister has always had an issue with me and my brother. She always felt that our dad treated us better than her.
When in actuality, my dad was constantly putting her over everyone else because she would always throw ridiculous tantrums. She also treated me and my brother poorly and always made our dad choose between us. And 9 times out 10, he would do as she said just to avoid the drama.
Last April, my now husband and I told everyone informally to save the date because we managed to snag a venue in October.
While we were still designing our wedding invitations, my older sister sent out wedding invites for her own wedding on the same exact day as ours.
To this day, she claims it was all a coincidence but I know for a fact that our dad told her my chosen date before she confirmed hers. I also know she booked her venue after we did.

I recently inherited a house from my mom,500,000 dollars and two cars from her. My sister found out this at her funeral and demanded me to give some of the cash. I refused and she yelled at me for being the "favorite child'. Here is some more info.
My dad died who me and my sister shared as our bio parent. My dad never gave any inheritance to us and gave it all to his wife my bio mom. . My sister called me the favorite child because I received all her dads things through my mom and her child hood home after my mom passing away.
My sister has started gathering her family members and they are ranting about me on Facebook and Instagram which a lot of people are joining her side. So now I am wondering if I am the asshole for not giving away the inheritance to my sister.
My parents divorced when I was 2. I am now 18, and until about three years ago I would spend summers and every other holiday with my dad. Most of that time was also spent with his parents, my grandparents.
My mom remarried when I was six to my stepdad, who is like my actual dad to me since my biological father is a POS and was abusive. They had my half sister a year later who is now 12. I refer to her as my sister, and introduce my stepdad as just "dad".
My grandparents on my biological father's side are very old, and honestly probably won't be around for much longer. I haven't seen them in three years and have very limites phone calls with them, always on my mom's phone with her sitting next to me. (They do not know this for certain but have guessed over the years).

Backstory: My parents were highschool sweethearts and got married young. They had 3 children (2 older sisters, and myself). My mum has always been very self centered, and acted like she disserves an award for just existing. My dad was in a car accident when I was about 9 years old. At the time she told people that he was fine and just making a big deal out of a few scratches. In reality he had broken 3 ribs, and his right arm and leg. They divorced 6 months after the accident.
If my sister's and I got recognized for something at school, she would manage to turn it all around to being about her. Isn't she amazing for raising 3 girls all on her own.
We were only important if we could make her feel better about herself, constantly having to tell her how pretty she was and how she was the best mum in the world. We only existed to her if we made her look good, we had to look and act a certain way or she would cry and scream about us being disappointments.

My sister in law is biracial (brother in law's second wife). I've always knew she was (both by the way she looks and her voice) but somehow she couldn't grasp it before her DNA test. She got the DNA test and was shocked to see that she was 48% SSA. She's not precisely light skinned but her hair is about a 3b hair so maybe that's why she never suspected. She's still coping with her new discovery.
I did 23andMe a few years ago and have found it really useful for both health and ancestry information. For a while, I’ve been telling my wife she should do it as well, especially since we’re thinking about having kids and we want to understand what we could be passing on to them. She decided to do it after the last $50 off special they had and got her results last week. She was really excited about looking at her results and when she logged into her account and checked her ancestry information, she was shocked to see that the top DNA relative is a “Half-Sister” who shares 28.6% of her DNA. She has no sisters that she knows about.
This person goes only by the initials “MV” on the site for privacy reasons. My wife sent MV a message on 23andMe a few days ago, but has not heard anything back yet.

I’m adopted. My birth mother lost me when I was 6 months old. She had gotten pregnant with me at 15 and I was taken away from her when she was around 16-17 due to some complicated circumstances but I think I would’ve been taken away from her eventually and I’m honestly glad I did. I reunited with her on New Years Eve of 2018 over Facebook. And we first met around January/February of 2019. I gave her the benefit of the doubt in the begining, because she had seemed to be off much better than when she left me. And In all fairness she is. But at times she feels like she’s at the adult equivalent of getting pregnant at 15. She had my half sister with her ex husband, and now she has a fiancé and they live about two hours away from me up in the mountains. We live in California Incase that’s relevant for laws.

***UPDATE: Added below and in replies ***
This coworker has had rotten luck the last 18-24 months. She’s lost two sisters and the most recent one (2-3 weeks ago) left behind a lot of debt. From what I know about her, she’s kind of the glue that holds her whole, quite large, somewhat troubled, extended family together. There’s all sorts of dramas with separations and problem children etc and she gives everyone a place to stay and tries to help everyone.
So it’s fallen to her to clean up after her sister and she’s trying to clear this debt and she’s come to me. She’d previously borrowed $1400 from me about 9 months ago to help pay for the same sisters medical treatment, so that she could keep money she had in a long term deposit without any fees. She has payed me back $400 to this point but still owes me a grand.

My sister and I both completed MyHeritage DNA kits, and were obviously surprised to see the results claiming we're only half sisters! We look wildly different, but have always assumed that she takes after our dad, and I take after our mum.
We share 1,642 centimorgans of DNA (23.2%), which after a bit of research seems to be just below the lower limit of what siblings can share - i.e. it is possible in theory, but highly improbable.
I also have a couple of close-ish DNA matches (great-uncle/first cousin; 779cm shared) on my results that do not show up at all on hers.
So I guess my question is - is there any way at all that we could be full siblings, or do I need to start hunting down a biological father?!

Seven years ago, my biological sperm donor cheated on my mother with a college aged girl that was like two years older than me. I cut him out of my life, went FULL no contact since he was a real bastard and I found it incredibly creepy that he was now "dating" someone that was basically my age. I haven't kept up with his life, I made it really clear to everyone in my family at the time, I want nothing to do with him and if they wanted me to still come to family things on my dad's side, that was my condition.
Everyone respected my boundaries, until recently.
Turns out, Sperm Donor got married to his 25 yr old GF, and had a kid. But surprise, surprise, their massive age gap relationship wasn't all roses and they got divorced pretty quickly later. Not my problem, but now ex-Wife is getting remarried and gave Sperm Donor full custody over their 5 yr old. Sperm Donor was a pretty shitty parent with us, so unsurprisingly, I doubt he's too keen to be a single dad at near 60.

I don't want to publicly post details. I don't even know if this is the right place to post. But any advice would be gratefully received. I live in the UK so data protection laws are a thing. Also I only know her approx age, give or take a year, there are two potential spellings of her first name, our fathers first name and an approximate location. I know she has two other older siblings but I know nothing about them, not even gender, except one was in uni when I was born. I don't know which resources would be best to use. I'm not interested in seeking out my dad.
My wife's sister has been through a lot in the past six months. Apparently she and her ex had been having problems for a long time but no one had really realized how bad it was until he had failed to show up to our wedding. They had been trying to have children for a number of years and had just slowly drifted apart with every test and procedure and consultation.
Within a year of our wedding, when we had realized they were having problems, they separated and she chose to stay at their old house until they were able to sell it. Being that she had stopped working when they had got married, it was hard for her to just jump back into her career after the separation. She went in for multiple interviews and got really far with one job opportunity but it fell through due to Covid.
By the time they sold the house, she had nowhere to go and was tired of being alone. For whatever reason most of their couple friends had turned their backs on her after the separation. The few who had kept in tou... keep reading on reddit ➡

Edit: I just want to thank everyone who took the time to read this and give me the advice I needed. You've made me see things from a different perspective and to me that's very valuable. I'm determined to meet up with my half-sister, alone, soon as life returns to normal. I feel we have a lot to talk about.
My dad cheated multiple times on my mom and as a result I have two half siblings (that I know of), 16F and 8M (different mothers). My dad is now dead.
Recently, my half-sister's mom contacted me and said she wanted to meet up and talk. I reluctantly agreed because I didn't want to seem like an asshole. She said that, as the older child (I'm 25F, and have a brother, 18M), I should make more of an effort to keep in touch with her daughter and spend more time together (me, my brother and my half-sister). She said my half-sister often asks about us and wants to get to know us, and that it would be a good idea for us to hang out more often (I've seen her like twice in my life).

When I was in elementary school, my dad’s daughter from his first marriage moved in with us. She was in high school at the time. From what I remember, she was pretty responsible and cared a lot about me and my younger brother despite us being annoying due to a lack of any kind of actual discipline from our parents. My uBPD mom would make her do all the chores, babysit on weekends, and blame her for her marital problems with my dad. My uBPD mom would leave weird passive aggressive notes all over the house like “smile! cameras are watching!” and stuff like that and also would go through her bedroom regularly because she was convinced she was pregnant, cheating, doing drugs, etc. She wasn’t. When it came time for prom, my uBPD mom refused to buy my half-sister a dress unless she had a date and my uBPD mom kept saying that her date was gay because no guy would go with her. (In reality my half-sister went with a friend because she couldn’t afford her own dress since she couldn’t work due to... keep reading on reddit ➡
I want to preface this by saying I am completely pro choice I firmly believe that it is the woman’s body and choice! That said I draw the line when abortion is being used as a form of birth control
ETA 2: SOOOOO THE DRAMA CONTINUES HER FULL BIO SIS (my other half sister) called me up saying that apparently when I hung up half sister laughed and said that I was so easy to upset. Turns out She ISNT Pregnant at all; Was doing it as a “Joke” and just wanted to see my reaction.
My other half sister is completely on my side she apparently had ago at her and said it was bang out of order and that she is crazy.
So I’m going to go shower and cry because she legit broke my heart and then block her on everything.
Anyway onto the situation;
My half sister (we will call her Meg) lost her V at 12 I was incredibly concerned about her sexual safety and told her mother and In result I was shunned by the family for “Lying” - 3 years later Meg came clean when she found out she was pregnant at just... keep reading on reddit ➡
Little background info: i'm 26, just finished med school. My father was 77 and passed away in March. He and my mother bought a flat together, but when I was 13 my mother was diagnosed with cancer, and her last wish was that my father gave her his part of the flat, so when she died 2 years later (so i was 15 at that time and my father 67) i inherited the flat.
The problem is, my father had another child from his previous marriage, my half-sister who is past 50 now. She didn't know about this and thought that she will inherit from the flat. I didn't know my father never told her the truth. We didn't really have a sibling bond... my father and his first wife separated when my sister was 18, and he got to know my mother years after that.
my sister feels like it would be fair if all the money went to her, (it's not a huge amount, like 1/4th worth of the flat, but not that little either), as "compensation" for the flat. my country's law says we split the money in half. It is impor... keep reading on reddit ➡
Our (32M/22F) father passed away 18 years ago when I was 14 and my sister was 4. I didn’t have a great relationship with him and things were usually tough because he struggled with alcohol. He inevitably died in a car accident while driving drunk, and that’s something I’ve never really been able to forgive him for. When he passed, I was crushed and my whole life was changed over night and for the first years, I would cry and miss him like you think anyone mourning the loss of a parent would, however as I got older and began to really understand the decisions and choices he made were selfish, and he should have known better. So yes, I’ve become somewhat resentful. My sister however didn’t have the same adversities growing up, and doesn’t really understand the abuse and hardships I went through ... so she doesn’t understand why I don’t think of him on thanksgiving or Christmas. Every holiday, Sis will text me and ask if I miss him and for the first decade and a half I just said yes. But... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have two boys one is age 8 and one is age 14. I have one girl who is age 12. Me and my son recently moved out from our apartment to our new house with my husband. The house has three bedrooms one for us and two for kids. I plan to give one full bedroom to a girl because I feel it's not a good idea to put girls and boys.
My son before we moved used to have a full bedroom so he is a little upset about that. Anyway it's a few weeks after we finished the arrangement and got the house in order. My son has been complain that he needs to have the room that my daughter got and I refused.
My son has been saying that it's been near impossible to sleep in the shared room cause his half brother is so noisy and that I read his half brother a book so that he can fall asleep. He complained about how his half brother messes with his things and distracts him from learning and studying his ap classes. I refused and told him he has to learn to live with what he got after he asked me why ca... keep reading on reddit ➡
Title says it all. I wish I was joking
Am I the Asshole for not helping out my mother and my half-sister?
Hello Reddit, this is a throwaway account due to the nature of the situation. Also, English isn't my native language, so I'll ask you to forgive me for any grammar or syntax mistakes I make.
I (27 M), am the illegitimate son of a very powerful and influential household in my country, I won't divulge names to preserve my privacy and security. I was born from a forbidden relationship between my mother and my father.
My mother is the daughter of a great conglomerate and that makes her name carry weight in my country, and her relationship with my father (who's a working class man), was forbidden by her family.
However, when she got pregnant, things got a bit complicated. Her family wanted her to abort me, and cease every relation with my dad, and she was going to do that. From what I understood, she was never really interested in having a proper relationship with my dad, just some fun.

I work for the post office. With corona going on and the world falling apart, I've working an ass-ton of hours. Due to this, I'm not the only one taking care of my golden retriever, Cooper. My sister in Monday, put Cooper's training collar on him (because he's crazy and only listens to me) and she never took it back off. I haven't been around since Monday because I've been in the off & on pattern of going to bed the second I get home from work. I went to take him for a walk tonight and realized he had his collar on. I asked how long it had been on, she then tells me that she didn't know he was even wearing it. Through my almighty powers of deduction, I figured out she in fact was the one to put it in him because I was with Cooper early Monday and he was not, in fact, wearing the training collar. Needless to say, my boy has a rash on his neck, and three sores from the collar. His neck looks rough, like nothing I've ever seen before. I'm planning on taking him to the vet tomorrow, bu... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have a 17 year old half sister I’m trying to locate. My estranged father died a year ago so it’s impossible to get info from him now. I have her name, age and a town I believe she is living in but nothing more. Unfortunately it’s very hard to find information on her since she’s under 18. I’ve looked on social media and other sites but have had no luck. Any advice would be appreciated.

Long story short my baby half-sister has been reaching out to me a bit more as she is going through some teenager stuff and mentioned astrology and how interested she is in otherworldly stuff.
I gave her a link for her birth chart and even though we are quite some years apart and a different sun sign (Scorpio and Taurus) we both share a Virgo moon and Leo ascendant.
I just found it really interesting and was wondering whether there is any meaning behind this - or is it purely a coincidence?
Ok I know it sound bad, and yes it probably was bad. I felt like I wasn't in the wrong.
So little background my younger sister and I were the typical sisters just well half sisters so we have the same dad. And all our lives my dad told me to take care of my sisters and love them. So I followed through as much as I can.
But my sisters mom had other plans. I cant go into everything shes done to me but here's a few:
-feed me foods I'm allergic to
-not feed me at all
-not bathing me
Shes even went to take family photos with my sisters and dad, but not me. So I have a deep hatred for her, but it only got worse when my dad died. When he died my whole relationship with my sisters poofed into non existence. Its only got worse. We try reaching out to her mom and she makes more and more empty promises. Every time we call and wish my sisters happy birthday. I can hear their mom telling them what to say. It only makes me fear what she tells them
But the second to last straw was wt my a... keep reading on reddit ➡

My husband ans mum seem to think I am crazy but really need objective opinions. My mother had my sister when she was 16 , then met and married my dad and had me. He raised my sister ( let's call her Jane) from the age 2. She doesn't know her real father , they both really had a father-daughter relationship. Sadly my dad passed away 2 years ago. Jane went to another european country for work. I had a baby in January and named him after my dad. Jane came back to the UK last week... She had tattooed my son/dad's name on her. I am so so annoyed. She did it months before his birth ,and we didn't disclose the name but still I am so p-off. I wanted th... keep reading on reddit ➡

I'm 28 year old woman and I DO NOT have a relationship with my father. He left our family for a younger woman when I was 18. I haven't had any contact with him in all these years. He tried to accuse my heartbroken mother of parental alienation, but I quickly shut that down.
As a lawyer, I lead a hectic life. I live with my partner of 4 years who has a 5 year old daughter. Her mother is not in her life. She left my SO and their baby for her sugar daddy and I've been raising my step daughter as my own since she was 1. I hope to adopt her one day. She's my little girl and I love her with all my heart.
Well last night, I received a call from my grandmother crying over the phone telling me that my father suffered a massive heart attack and that he's currently in the hospital.
I was informed that he will be undergoing a complicated heart surgery which will render him unable to take care of his daughter for a while. His wife passed away a year ago so he needs someone to look after his d... keep reading on reddit ➡
Reposting, my previous post was removed because I put the names, my bad.
Sorry if this is not the proper sub to post this, but here I go:
I am a 35y/o who just found I have a half-brother and a half-sister, long story short: (All this happened in Mexico by the way, Guadalajara to be precise) my dad had a previous marriage before marrying my mother, and he had 2 children in this relationship. According to the person who told me, my dad left this person and abandoned their children to start a new relationship with my mom, he broke communication with his old family because he didn't want my mom to know that he was previously married (healthy I know). I confronted my father and after he had a mental breakdown; he told me that it was true and told me their names (after a long dance) X and Y, now my last name is like the 6th most common last name in Spanish, so I am screwed... I have no other information about them, he says he has no idea about them, so he doesn't know where they live, et... keep reading on reddit ➡
