Discover the Top 10 Reasons Why Families Are Being Torn Apart

Families fall out all the time, sometimes over the smallest of things. Mostly, people make up, after all, blood is thicker than water, right? Well not always, sometimes what’s happened in the past has left such a negative impact, history and people are blurred away and forgotten about.

The subject came up in a recent Reddit thread when u/Electrical_Ant6630 asked fellow Redditors, “Why don’t you talk to ‘that’ family member anymore?” Understandably, the thread was marked as Not Say For Work so you have been warned.

Here are the top 10 responses.

ThisIsNotTex contribution was the top-voted response. They said, “When at my sister’s funeral they told me I had no reason to cry because I wasn’t really family because I was adopted. I was adopted within my own family. We were still biologically related.” GlyphCreep replied in support saying, “…even if you werent bio related, why would you be criticised for crying? I have a different dad from my sister, when he died, my sister had to leave work she was so upset, she sobbed and sobbed. My dad was like an uncle to her, but in no way were they related.”

2. They Gave Away My Home Address – 14k Votes
