When it comes to family members, the urge to snoop can often backfire. Because learning too much information about your next-of-kin can be a real buzzkill, especially at the next family reunion. These stories will serve as a reminder that sometimes ignorance really is bliss.
1.) From RatSalad_918:
Mom has a boyfriend in another state. Dad knows, my brother knows. Mom doesn't know we know.
2.) From Olivecats4lyfe:
After my dad died his secret mistress released a bunch of erotic essays he had written. Enough to fill a book.
3.) From beach_bum77:
I had a great Aunt tell me she was dying of cancer, but not to say anything to the rest of the family.
I was the only one close to her.
She had refused all treatment, was 90+ and had decided enough was enough. She didn't want the family trying to talk her into treatment.
Died 8 months later on her terms.
