Denmark: Widow Discovers She Was Married To Her Grandfather For 13 Years
Copenhagen | Anna Grahmson, a 33-year old widow, made an unpleasant discovery when she realized while reading the will of her deceased husband that she had been married to her own grandfather for 13 years.
The will left by her deceased spouse acknowledged the terrible truth that he had uncovered, a truth he kept from her not to break her heart, he swore in writing.
Her husband and grandfather also wrote that he only had recently learned the horrific truth a few years ago and was blissfully unaware of the facts during most of ‘the 13 beautiful years’ of their relationship, he wrote.
The couple in happier times. Because of their great age difference, the odd couple thankfully never thought of having children, claims the shocked widowThe young woman’s mother was given away as a child to her grandfather’s sister at the time when the man and his former wife abandoned their child to the family, without notice, to pursue an unsuccessful career as actors in Germany.
This truth was never revealed to the young woman as her family kept the fact secret to her all her life.
Her grandfather eventually came back many years later to Denmark, but most relatives he knew had passed away since then.
The strange couple both met 14 years ago at a large Grahmson family reunion where more than 400 related family members were reunited, thinking they had no direct family tie to each other, except their name.
