Woman Finds Out She's Married to the Last Man She'd Want to Be Married To

This sounds like some kind of horrible Lifetime movie, but it's not. A woman in Brazil was reportedly trying to track down her long-lost mother, who had abandoned her as a baby. The mother's name is Maria. Meanwhile, the woman, Adriana, was married to a wonderful man named Leandro, who had also been abandoned when he was a baby. By a woman named Maria. Hey, Maria is a common name, right? But maybe you can figure out where this is going.


Adriana, now 39 but still unwilling to give up the search for her mom, called a radio station and asked for its help. The station's program, The Time Is Now, which specializes in reuniting long-lost relatives, managed to find Maria. The two were put back in touch on air.

It was then that Maria revealed something astonishing -- she had also given birth to a boy that she had given up. And that boy's name was ... Leandro.


Yes, it turns out that Adriana was married to her half-brother. The two also had a daughter.

When she first found out, Adriana began wailing uncontrollably and said:

I don't believe that you're telling me this. Leandro is my husband. Now I'm scared to go home and find out that Leandro doesn't want me any more. I love him so much.

However, when she went home and broke the news, Leandro did not reject her. The two have decided to remain together and still love each other. Adriana said:

Only death is going to separate us. All this happened because God wanted it to happen.

Wow. Incredible. What a shocker! But you can't blame the couple for wanting to remain together. After all, they fell in love when they had no idea they were related.

Perhaps this might put a damper on their sex life in the future, but who am I to say? It's unclear if their daughter has any genetic disorders, but perhaps the two shouldn't have any more children. Then again, since they are half-siblings, perhaps it's not as bad as full.

Hopefully, the daughter won't be too horrified when she finds this out. And hopefully Adriana and Leandro aren't vilified by their community.

Should they stay together? Would you?
