I think it might have been better if nobody ever told them, lol.

They probably would have been perfectly happy in the long run...but I suppose it's good they didn't have children or anything....*shudder*

I would sue the adoption agency for not informing about the existence of other relatives.

It's not that simple. Nobody is obliged to inform them of any relatives. People who are adopted must search for the information themselves if they want to find out any of their biological history.
The percentage of adopted people who never find out about any of their biological family is extremely high, only a very small percentage manage to successfully trace their biological family.

Wow that sucks. Can you imagine how much crap he is getting from his friends! Kissing your sister is bad enough. And you know he is going to be worried about any future relationships. Umm, lets get a blood test first.

What a family that could have been. This is my mom, dad, and my aunt and uncle. Instant Jerry Springer hit...

i read that too, and like if they had kids, and then found out or something, that would be harsh on everyone there, im guessing the child wouldn't be fully fit either.

Imagin all the family parties they have to go to now, it'll just be a night mare

God that would be so horrible if that happened. I feel sorry for those two, but at least they can keep in touch :-P
