OUCH! Engaged Couple Expecting a Child Learn They Are Brother and Sister

October 5, 2015

The perfect couple they were. They probably shared similar features, and it's a fact they held a very knit bond, but only to learn after dating for five years, becoming engaged, and expecting a child, they are blood brother and sister.

A South African couple who choose to remain anonymous is said to be in shock after discovering that they are brother and sister with the same mother and father. According to the Daily Mail, their parents split up when the woman was eight months old and the man was two years old. Neither of them knew about each other, and they grew up separately about fifty miles apart, the boy with their father and the girl with their mother.

The two reconnected in 2007 while attending college together and fell in love. The discovery of their incest relationship occurred when the two decided to introduced their families before their planned wedding, and of course they are devastated by the news, and don't have a clue what they will tell their unborn child.

“It was love at first sight. We were studying together at Tshwane University of Technology in Nelspruit,” the woman said. “When I first saw him, we connected. We fell in love and since that day, we never looked back. All we wanted to do was just to have a family and many kids. So you can imagine how shocked we were when they broke the news. We are going to have a child together. We do not know what we will tell him when he grows up.”

Wow… what would you do if you learned the man or woman you were in love and starting a family with was a distant cousin, or even worse, your brother or sister?
