Would you want to know?

Through a series of coincidences, we have found out my husband has a half brother. We are in our 40's. My husband thinks it would be great to connect with this man. We have no way of knowing if he would want contact and obviously, if we try and connect-this man will know he has a half brother. Would you honestly want to know.

  • My husband has a half brother he never met and has no desire to meet him. I am sure if his half brother tried to contact him, my husband would meet him, but he would never attempt to find him. As far as my husband is concerned he is not really family.

     I can't say exactly how I would feel if I had a long lost sibling. I would probably want to meet them out of curiosity.

  • I think he would want to know...or maybe he already does know...I think that your husband is very interested in seeing this man and meeting him so even if the other guy doesnt wanna know your never gonna know unless you try

  • Why would you not want to know? DOnt stand in his way,, support him and let him do this.

  • I am not standing in his way... I personally would want to know, just seeing if I am in the majority here or if there are ALOT of people who would not want to know. Keep the answers coming, I think we should go for it, but want to see if most people agree.

  • I would want to know.

    I have 3 half sisters that i had always known about but never got to meet as a child. When i was 14 my oldest sister connected with me. when i was 15 she introduced me to her younger (my other older sister). My other sister i still have yet to meet and maybe i never will. But i would like to.

  • I found out a few years ago that I have a half sister, I am grateful to have found out, just wish the timing would have been better (I was pregnant and ended up having a miscarriage, possibly due to stress).
