A SON has defended his mother’s decision to carve the word “adulterer” into his cheating father’s gravestone.
Posting the shock move to Reddit, the unnamed man explained his reasoning behind supporting his mum’s vengeful decision.
“My father and mother had a very bitter marriage towards the end of his life, he had a long-running affair with another married co-worker and got her pregnant before he passed,” the son wrote.
“He was planning to leave mum, skip the country and move to Canada to start a new life with her.”
The son claimed that his dad and the new love of his life had chosen a house for his family.
However, his father died of a heart attack just before this could happen.
When it was time to get revenge on her husband’s unfaithfulness, his mom did it the only way she knew how.
She requested that his headstone be engraved with the following epitaph: “In loving memory of John Doe, son, husband, father and adulterer.”
The man went on to explain how his father’s pregnant partner and his side of the family are furious at the engraving and have asked that he fix it.
According to the man, he is fine with it.
“I personally think it’s fine, that’s who he was.,” He wrote.
“He was all of those things. And since it’s my mom’s plot, I can’t do anything.”
He wrote that his mom and dad never got divorced, and that neither of them ever filed for separation.
They had been in the process to get their lawyers involved but “on paper, they were still happily married,” the man said of his parents.
