What would you do in this situation? (Genetic / DNA Testing)

Asked by elbanditoroso (22416points) May 12th, 2017

No, this hasn’t happened to me. I heard an ad for 23 and Me and my mind started working..

Suppose you paid for one of those genetic tests (23 and Me being one, but there are others in the market.)

Further suppose that the results were totally the opposite of what your parents had told you.

I’m assuming, of course, that the genetic testing is going to be accurate.

How would you handle the conflict between your results and history?

I’d let it go. The past is past. No point in creating drama where there was none.

Funny you should ask… I am in this situation right now. I have a few more family members testing right now. We should get their results any day now. Then, from there I have to figure out what to do next (if anything). It has been very interesting, to say the least.

Depending on the results you were either switched in the hospital at birth, you were adopted and they never told you, or your mom was impregnated by a man other than your father and she never let on.
