In an article in the UK's Express, a man had to resort to drastic measures when he found out that his parents had done a DNA test on his baby son behind his back.
The man's parents did not trust his wife and thought that the only reason she was with their son was so that she could remain in the US.
The man posted his story anonymously on Reddit.
He claimed that he first met his wife, Sonya when she was working in a restaurant as a waitress. His parents never approved of the relationship and were dismayed when he announced that he was going to marry Sonya.
The parents refused to give their blessing so he eloped with Sonya only inviting friends to witness their wedding.
After the elopement, the couple welcomed a baby son, Garreth and that was when his parents decided to get back in touch.
However, things were still not settled. One day, he happened to overhear a remark that his mother made while playing with his son.
"My parents visit us regularly and one day while dad and mom are playing with Garreth, mum said something along the lines of, 'Aren't you the cutest baby ever? I am so glad to confirm you are indeed my grandson'."
When he asked his mother about the remark, she looked startled and tried to feign ignorance.
However, he pressed the matter until he got an answer. His parents had Garreth's DNA tested to ensure that the child was really his. He was really shocked and upset.
Although his parents were apologetic, he ordered them out of his house and told them they could not visit their grandson anymore.
The only reason he posted on Reddit was to seek advice about whether he overreacted with his parents.
Among the commenters, the advice was unanimous. As one person explained,
"Toxic grandparents don't belong in the family. No matter how hard it is to cut them out."
