Couple Decide To Take DNA Test For ‘Fun’ But The Result Unearths Dark Secrets About Their Family History

They say to make your relationship interesting, the partners should be trying new things every now and then. You could decide to eat out, visit interesting places or you could take a DNA test to find out more about your family history.

But before going ahead to take a DNA test, people interested in discovering more about their family tree should read a few of the horror stories posted online, so they know what they’re really letting themselves in for.

From the couple whose marriage was blown apart, to the young guy who discovered his girlfriend was actually his half sister, it’s fair to say that DNA testing kits are not for the faint-hearted.

A young couple recently decided to go for a DNA test for a bit of “fun” but the whole experience didn’t end up well for them. The pair thought it would be interesting to take the test in the hopes of discovering some exciting information about their ancestors, but the result ended up tearing their relationship apart.

As the Mirror puts it, the 26-year-old man, whose name was not identified took to Reddit to share the information that his girlfriend, 27, broke up with him over their DNA results.

He says the results uncovered a very dark family secret even he didn’t know about, and his partner simply couldn’t get over it. He explained:

“A month ago, my girlfriend and I thought it would be fund to do the DNA test offered by Ancestry.com to learn more about our family tree. They really give you a lot of info and it took a while to go over.

We were having a lot of fun with it but then I found something out about one of my ancestors that has now caused me to lose my girlfriend.

There were a few names in my family tree that I did not recognize and after doing some research it turns out that one of my ancestors was an infamous serial killer.”

Understandably, the man was horrified upon learning the news and decided to double-check with his family if at all the results were accurate. The man’s family admitted there was a serial killer in their family, but they have tried their best over the years to disassociated the family from the person.

The girlfriend simply could not get over the fact that she has all along been dating someone with blood ties to a serial killer. Few months down the line, she called the boyfriend for a serious talk.

The man wrote,

“This weekend my girlfriend wanted to meet to have a serious discussion with me. [She] broke up with me because she could not deal with the fact that I’m related to a serial killer.

She told me that she loves me very much, but explained that the fact I had the same blood as someone so evil has made her look at me differently.”

After this revelation, the man then asked his fellow Redditors if they had any advice on how he could win his lover back. Some were shocked by the woman’s behaviour and told the man he was better off without her.

One person commented: “If she let ancestry.com results come in the way of your relationship, her foot was already half out the door and she was just looking for an out.”

Another replied: “She was either looking for an excuse or she was a complete moron. Either way OP is better off.”
