Even though it would have been best for them to tell you, maybe it just didn't matter to them because they know that the real parents are who raise you, not who you are biologically from.
That sucks FYL! but as long as your "father" treated you with love and raised you as his own,then remember the good memories and know he loves you just as he would if you were his real son
It shouldn't suck though. It's a possibility that her father could provide her mum with children and they went down another route. I can understand the initial shock but I can also understand why the parents didn't say anything. In my opinion it's quite irrelevant as they obviously both wanted children and it's a good possibility that OP has had a good life. :)
I don't really see why this is a huge deal. It doesn't change who you are, fundamentally, to have different genetics than you previously thought. Your parents are your parents, no matter who contributed to your creation.
That kinda sucks. But if what they are telling you is true I'm sure they had good reason. On the flip side maybe your mom wasn't faithful? Either way, he raised you from a baby and so long as he did a good job I would consider him my father were I in your situation.
How do they forget something that huge? Amnesia? What is this? "All My Children?"
