Just a month away from his dream wedding, a young man met his fiancé’s close friend, who revealed a heartbreaking truth about her and their baby.
They say marriages are made in heaven, but a 24-year-old bride-to-be’s wedding was ruined on the ground when he accidentally came across an old friend of his 25-year-old fiancé. During this shocking process, he packed his suitcases and found himself on his parents’ doorstep, seeking peace after discovering a heartbreaking truth about his future wife.
The man in question (we call him Martin) was happy to swap rings with his fiance, Sarah (the name was changed for obvious reasons), until he met an old friend of hers a month before the event. He was shaken when the woman revealed to him a secret she had kept from Sarah for over a year.

Published as throwRA_peaceofmind in Reddit’s ‘Relationship Advice’ section, Martin said he was unsure which way to go – marriage or divorce – after the unnamed woman revealed that the baby he became father to Sarah may not have been his .
Martin said her friend thought it was better for him to know the truth before the wedding. She remembered the confession Sarah gave her shortly after her pregnancy that summed up her affair with another man. The revelation had the effect of a bomb on the young man and he could not bring himself to believe it.
Everything Sarah’s friend had told her made no sense and contradicted what he knew about the woman he loved. But with each passing day, doubt creeps into Martin’s mind as he recalls his first encounter with Sarah.

When he met Sarah 5 years ago, she was in a relationship with someone else. However, she broke up with the latter and began a new romance with Martin a year later. After almost 3 years of relationship, she revealed her pregnancy to him.
Martin ended up putting the last pieces of the puzzle together about the sudden revelation of Sarah’s pregnancy. He said it explained a lot as he had always opted for contraception to avoid pregnancy.
His fiance revealed some of the most incredible details he dared to dream about.
The news of Sarah’s infidelity sent a bomb through Martin, and although he did not want to give in to this alleged rumor, he took a paternity test to solve the mystery. Not surprisingly, the results showed that he was not the child’s father.

At that time, the wedding was only two weeks to be completed. Everything from the venue to the invitations is ready as Martin battles his worst fear of a risky ordeal.
He felt unhappy and said he could not look at Sarah the same way anymore. “I’m not sure what advice Reddit can give,” he said painfully. “… but I do not know where else to go.”
Netizens sympathized with Martin and suggested he move on and never look back. Redditor Glen_SK advised Martin not to withdraw from revealing the truth.
“Tell everyone the truth – someone said your daughter might not be yours, you took a DNA test, you are not the father,” the person pointed out.

Although the Redditors advised Martin to end his marriage, they also asked him to consider taking another DNA test and ending the relationship if the results were similar. However, the user MedievalMissFit immediately dived into the discussion and said:
“Doing another DNA test will not change anything. The results will be the same … He is NOT the FATHER and should not go through with this wedding engraving.”
Convinced by the sheer amount of empathy and suggestions pouring in, Martin took another paternity test to confirm his doubts before making a decision. The results are the same.
Martin, unaware of this catastrophic truth, ended up telling Sarah about it. She ends up revealing some of the most incredible details to him he did not dare dream of.

After an outburst of emotion and a “how could you not trust me” type of guilt, Sarah revealed that she had had several affairs with three men.
After hearing this, Martin decides after careful consideration that he can not arrange the wedding. He was helped by the fact that his and Sarah’s parents, even though they were shocked, supported his decision.
Unsure of how things will develop in the future, Martin said he has finally come to terms with the fact that his little girl is not his.
“It’s not too late to start over, she’s still young (a year), she will not remember me,” he stressed painfully. “As painful as it is, I do not see my life go on with her.”

Questions to consider:
Do you think Martin’s marriage would have had a chance if the second DNA test revealed he was the child’s father?
Martin was forced to end his marriage to his fiancée after the second DNA test also revealed that he was not the child’s father. However, it can still be debated whether Martin’s marriage would have had a chance if the results had been different the second time, given the possibility that he took a third test that could match the results of the first.
How do you deal with an unfaithful partner and come across the fact that the child you have raised together is not biologically yours?
After finding out he was not the child’s biological father, Martin had no choice but to end his marriage. He told himself that his relationship with his fiancé’s baby was based on a lie and that the child would forget it over time. Would you find it difficult to let your child go after finding out that you are not their biological parent? How would you react to your partner’s admission of infidelity?
