I was married to a man who was my second marriage and his third marriage. His second ex-wife had gotten pregnant by another man while he was married to her and she refused to admit this to her children. My husband had a vastectomy after their first child was born, which means the second child was not his. He doesn’t even look like his father. This child was never told about this, he is now in the service and still thinks my deceased husband is his father. I have proof in his divorce paperwork (the court record states that the son is not my husband’s biological child) and I have kept the paperwork since my husband passed away (thirteen years ago).
Should I inform the son of this, or should I keep it to myself? I feel the son should know in case in the future he might need to know his true DNA but when I pass away this information will be lost to him. I know personally from my deceased husband’s own mouth and his divorce papers that the son is not his biological child. I want to do what is right in the eyes of God. Please help me to do the right thing. I have several health issues and don’t want to die with this on my soul. I have recently come home to the faith and am trying to do the right thing.
