Man left 'shocked and confused' after discovering his wife is his half-sister

A man has explained how his life was turned upside down when he discovered that his wife is, in fact, his half-sister.

In a lengthy , the man clarified that he was adopted two minutes after he was born and has never known anything about his biological parents. He also said he met his wife “by chance” eight years ago.

He said that they have two children together, a girl of four and a two-year-old boy, and that his wife “got sick just after our son was born and now is in need of a kidney transplant”.

He claimed that none of her relatives was a match or viable doner, so he got tested to see if he could fulfill the life-saving role.

“I got a call the other day saying that I was a match,” he wrote. “The doctor then said something about wanting to do additional testing due to some information from the HLA (human leukocyte antigen) tissue test results. I didn't think much of it and agreed.”
