Tell Us The Secret In Your Family That No One Else Knows About

Every family has one!

Pretty much every family has a deep, dark secret that almost* everyone will take to their grave.

*Maybe you'll be the exception?

And since some of those secrets are just too good to keep to yourself, I'm hoping you'll entertain us a little.

For example, maybe your aunt had an affair with a priest and accidentally got pregnant, but your family tried to keep it under wraps for decades.

This actually happened to BuzzFeed user Rorycat: "She lied and said the child was her husband's. No one ever knew it wasn't his, except for my mum and me. The kid is now 15 and has met the priest once or twice but doesn't know he's his father."

Perhaps your family's secret is actually kind of dark, and everyone involved refuses to discuss it.

"When my grandmother was 12, she was kidnapped for two days. She was later returned, and everyone pretended like nothing had happened, including her mother. To this day, she will not talk about it, and we're not allowed to bring it up to anyone."


Or maybe you uncovered a secret in your family, but no one knows that you know it!

"When my father died, I found his birth certificate. It listed someone other than my grandfather as his dad. I can't bring myself to talk about it with my grandparents."


It's story time, folks. Tell us your family's wildest, biggest, funniest, or juiciest secret via the DropBox below, and you could be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post or video!
