All families have secrets. While some secrets are pretty minor and forgettable, others are colossal and truly earth-shattering.
But when you're a kid, you're blissfully unaware of all the hot gossip and juicy secrets floating around in the family. Then, when you're older, the truth comes out.
Maybe when you were 16, you finally learned that your dad's brother Jack and sister Jenny stopped attending the same family functions because their spouses were caught having an affair during one of the family beach trips.
Perhaps, once you were a teenager, you were told the story of how your grandma once hooked up with Elvis Presley in a bar bathroom.
Or maybe you never knew the true story of how Great-Grandpa Bernard died, only to later find out that Great-Grandma June learned he was having an affair and poisoned his coffee.
