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 even claimed that his dad and his new lover had a house picked out for their new family.
But before this could happen, his dad passed away from a heart attack.
So when it was time for his mom to seek revenge on her unfaithful husband, she did it the only way she could.
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.
But according to the man, he's just 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."
His mom and dad were never divorced and neither of the pair ever filed for legal 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.
