We'll say this is a hypothetical question.
Parent 1 has blood type 'O'
Parent 2 has blood type 'AB'
Can this couple give birth to an 'O+' baby ?
Both parent 1 and 2 have passed away. How would I go about confirming that parent 1 and parent 2 are that kid's parents?
Asking on the off-chance that there's a geneticist among us or that someone has these blood types in the family.
I wish I could talk to my wife about this but she is grieving the death of her father-in-law and is already a little worried about me and how I'm dealing with the situation. I didn't want to give her more cause for concern.So thank you for letting me pick your brain and use you as a sounding board. Much appreciated.
I've thought long and hard and this is what I've concluded. I'm angry and I resent this man for not being there for me when I was a child, for coming back into my life and making me like him and trust him, knowing that he may not be my father and then dropping this bombshell before dying on me. I owe him nothing . Any sense of filial duty I may have felt towards him when he was alive was misguided. I refuse to honour his wishes.I don't want a single cent of his money. They can cremate his 740k with him, for all I care. Perhaps I'm being immature, and the anger will most certainly fade away after a while, but I know for certain that I won't regret this decision.
As for getting a paternity test ,I've decided not to do it. I don't want to hurt those he's left behind. My children are grieving the man they believe is their grandfather and there's a little girl who will grow up without a father. I would not want to deprive her of her half-brother, her half-niece and nephews. She loves us and we love her. Whether we're blood-related or not is of no consequence to me.
The only downside I can see, is that without the DNA test, I cannot rule out that he was my father and with his family history , that I have a 1 in 2 chance of getting prostrate cancer. I'm just going to have to keep doing the tests regularly. In the grand scheme of things, this is just a minor inconvenience, if I may call having a man insert their gloved finger inside of me on a regular basis, a minor inconvenience 😒
