Dad’s Fuming After Discovering That His Wife Had An Affair, Gets Revenge By Refusing To Pay For All Of His Kids’ College Unless They Prove Their Kinship With A DNA Test.
A husband wife relationship will have its ups and downs. A child should not be affected in the fight. Biologically or not a father and child have a very special bond. However in this story the father wants to punish the offspring for his wife’s unfaithfulness. Should the child be involved? (This story was sent to us by Lukas).
My dad found out my mom was cheating and she won’t say with who or when but we know it’s likely around the time she was on a stay at home mother. Thing is she had all of us (2 brothers one sister) around the same time so any one of us could not be my father’s.
He’s divorcing my mother and wants us to take a DNA test to prove we’re his children otherwise he isn’t paying for college for us. He promised to do so before this and all of us have been counting on it.
My sister (oldest) did the test because she was confident she was related to our dad. She was likely pre-cheating and she looks the most like him so I was pretty she was. She’s also in college and is relying on our dad and he’s going to keep paying because the results of the paternity test came back positive.
I have a feeling I’m not my dad’s biological kid since I don’t look anything like him and people even have commented I don’t look like the rest of my family. I’m terrified because I think he’s upset enough that he won’t talk to me anymore and definitely won’t be paying for my college. I don’t want to take the paternity test because I don’t want to know but if I don’t I probably won’t get college paid for. The money isn’t in a college fund but set aside as investments my dad has and isn’t going to going to my mom in the divorce proceedings probably.
I don’t know how things will go and I’m starting college in September. I stupidly picked a pretty expensive school because I thought my dad would pay for it and he said it was ok but now even if my mom was willing to I don’t think she can afford it.
I’m so mad at her and my dad for putting me in this position. I’ve told him I’m not doing the test and he said that’s ok but he will assume I’m not his and not have anything else to do with me once since I’m 18 already. I’m living with my mom but not talking to her because of this.
Should he punish the boy for his wife’s actions & how would you handle such a situation?
