A woman from Brazil searching for her birth mother discovered she has been married to her own brother for seven years.

According to the Daily Mail, 39-year-old Adriana and her husband 37-year-old Leandro were abandoned as babies and have spent their lives trying to find who they thought was their respective mothers.

Leandro grew up in the same town where he was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil while Adriana moved away and was married for 15 years.

“The pair met for the first time ten years ago after Adriana’s marriage broke down and she moved back to her home town, and they soon fell in love and moved in together,” The Daily Mail reports.

Recently, Adriana contacted a radio station asking for help in locating her birth mother. The two were reunited live on the air. At the end of the interview the mother revealed she also had a son who didn’t know her.

“As it becomes clear that it is the same Leandro that she was married to, Adriana is heard weeping uncontrollably: ‘I don’t believe that you’re telling me this. Leandro is my husband,’” The Daily Mail reports.

Adriana and Leandro, who never married legally, have a 6-year-old child.

      and that is EXACTLY how others feel about gay “marriage” and the gay lifestyle yet that is called “hate” when someone makes that same comment…

      Riddle me this. The Gay and Liberal communities always go on about “You don’t choose who you love.” and “Love is Love.” Wouldn’t this case be the epitome of that?? Anyway, i bet if the news story was “Anchor reacts to husband finding out he’s married to a woman who used to be a man.” It would be called hate and bigoted and the Anchor would be fired .

        You horrible, disgusting people. It’s not gross, it’s sad, neither one knew of their relation when they fell in love and had a child so it’s just upsetting that they’re going have deal with this bombshell under spotlights. Why do you care where other people find their love?

    This is very upsetting to find out for a couple… at the end they are in love and have a child..
    They should move on and just be happy ..
    That’s what happens as well when kids get abandoned and then separately adopted. . We all from broken famillies should do dna tests before committing to someone. ..

    If they love each other, good for them!
    The only reason we as a society view familial relationships negatively is because when you have children, you have a smaller gene pool to produce from, thus that means higher rate of mutation. Besides that, there isn’t anything wrong with it.
    In fact, it’s been proven that in 1st cousins, there’s only 1% more chance of genetic mutation than two random people who meet & marry.
    There have been tons and tons of inter-family relationships throughout history.. Look at Queen Elizabeth and all of her children.
    Let them live and be happy. The only gross thing about this is the way society is treating these people. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

    That would be just heartbreaking. I would be crying rivulets of tears. My heart would just break. I’d have to have heaven minister to me deeply. When I last had something so grievous happen to me, I told God, “I cannot go on one more minute. I am going to pass out from grief.” And that night, God sent female angels streaming from the heavenlies who descended and surrounded me in a vision from heaven. They were slender and Radiant and filled with peace and restoration. The angel I saw the closest had red hair and shining blue eyes and she had a kind of wand with power of the Holy Ghost given to her from God and with her came God’s power to heal my spirit. We, alone, cannot heal. Bu, with the Holy Spirit is healing and comfort and it MUST FLOW IN RIVERS FROM HEAVEN TO THE PERSON AND HEAL DAMAGE, sometimes terrible terrible things.
