I only often hear about paternity tests on movies and TV shows.

But in this real-life story, OP shares that the father of her baby wanted to know if he really is the father just because the color of the baby is different from his.

Crazy, right?

What’s crazier is accusing his wife of cheating.

Check it out!

AITA for insulting my husband after he asked for a paternity test and suggested I cheated?

I, 25F, just had my first child with my husband, 29M, of four years.

He is white, and I am mixed race, but very white passing.

Here’s a little bit of OP’s background.

I was raised by my adoptive parents.

However, I have reconnected with my biological paternal family.

My biological mother was white, and I look a lot like her.

My biological father, whom I call my ataata, is Inuit, and we look very little alike, but we are getting closer emotionally.

Her husband wouldn’t accept their child.

My son looks so much like my ataata, and I cried when I saw him for the first time.

He has darker skin than my husband and I, but he has my husband’s eyes and nose.

After he was born, my husband was cold and distant. He wouldn’t hold our son. He wouldn’t show me affection.

Even when my ataata came over, and I took a bunch of pictures of grandfather and grandson, my husband refused to connect with our son.

He wanted to make sure the baby was his.

He demanded a paternity test a few weeks ago.

I was upset but complied.

He is the father, as I knew he was.

I told him that I was a prime example of not looking like my biological father, and that I felt he was an idiot for suggesting I was cheating.

They got into a heated argument.

He shot back with, “Well, how do I know the man you bring around is actually your dad and not your affair partner?”

Yes, he insinuated I lied about my ataata being my dad, and that I was sleeping with him.

I regret saying it because I had promised to leave it behind, but I said, “Well, then, say hello to “Sarah” for me.”

Sarah is the woman my husband had an affair with two years ago.

He broke it off, and we reconciled, but I feel like it was rich of him to accuse me of cheating when he was the one who cheated in the first place.

OP is now considering getting a divorce.

He called me a jerk for bringing it up, and now, we’re not speaking, and I’ve moved into the nursery.

I’m considering divorce, but also thinking about my words, which were hurtful and uncalled for.


What do you think? Let’s find out the reactions of other Reddit users.
