Family is the most amazing thing in the world. Members of our family care about us more than anyone else in the world. We all think our families are the strangest in the world. But from time to time we realize that we are as normal as everyone else. However, these 10 families will make your family look like the most conventional family in the world. Some are too big to be called family, while others do things we don’t even dream of doing. Here is the list of the 10 most unbelievable families in the world.
10. The Duggar family (1 Couple 19 Children)
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are parents of 9 girls and 10 boys, making them parents of 19 children in total. They did a reality show called 19 kids and counting.
The reason they have so many children is simple, they refuse to take any kind of contraceptive because of their religious faith. They are devout Baptists and often discuss values of purity, modesty, and faith in God.
9. The Chana Family (1 Man 39 Wives)
If the Duggar family was a big family to you, how about a man named Ziona Chana who married 39 women, had 94 children, has 14 daughters-in-law and 34 grandchildren, bringing the family to 180 members in total. He holds the Guinness World Record for being the head of the largest family in the world.
8. The Marshall Family (Fake Boob Family)
Meet mother and daughters who have gone through knives to gain fake breasts. All of these ladies have very large breasts except one girl named Britney Marshall. She is the only one in her family who has not yet had surgery to look like the rest of her sisters. Undoubtedly one of the most unbelievable families in the world.
7. The Manson Family (Family Of Psychopaths)
Charles Manson is probably the best known and most popular serial killer in history. A musician who turned criminal is famous for his series of murders from 1969 to 1971. Charles, who was devoted heavily to being Christ and hoping to bring about an apocalyptic racial war killing people, is clearly an insane person. Manson, which is not really a family, is a group of criminals who have committed many crimes.
6. Lia and Aro (Vempire Couple)
Meet Lia Benninghoff and Aro Draven, two love birds that drink each other’s blood once a week, disgusting, don’t they? They believe the blood will hold them together forever. They released a graphic video on the internet, in which the two cut themselves while the other drinks blood. This certainly makes them one of the strangest families in the world.
5. Theresa Knorr And Children (Psycho Mother)
Theresa Knorr, mother of 6, was abusive of her children physically, verbally and psychologically. She married 4 men and divorced them in a short period of time, probably due to her unsteady mind. After the fourth divorce, she became even more abusive and started drinking a huge amount of alcohol. During this period, she gained a lot of weight and became temperamental.
Reports suggest that she has disconnected all her children from the rest of the world. She would not allow them to go out and contact anyone, even on the phone. For many years, Knorr tortured his children in many ways, including forced feeding, beating objects, burning them with cigarettes, throwing knives at them and threatening them with a gun. Her abuse was more focused on the two older sisters, and she used other children to help her torture girls. She believed that her eldest daughter, Suesan, was a witch. After a severe beating, Suesan ran away from home for help. But police sent her back to her mother after Knorr convinced them that Suesan was mentally unstable. Suesan was again tortured by Knorr and eventually shot in the chest by a 22-caliber pistol. Theresa Knorr was sentenced to life in prison.
4. The Podkopaev Family (Family Of Serial Killers)
A Russian family consisting of husband and wife and two daughters, all of whom murdered at least 30 people, including women and children. She made countless assaults and tortured many victims before killing them. However, daughter Victoria was not so lucky as she was stabbed to death by one of the victims. Eventually, the whole family met their destiny. Unfortunately, however, 30 men, women and children were already dead by then.
3. The Fritzl Family (The Psycho Father, Foolish Mother and Unlucky Daughter)
The Fritzl case received worldwide attention in 2008 when Elisabeth Fritzl told local Austrian police that she was held captive by her father Josef Fritzl for 24 years. He not only locked her in the basement, but also tortured her and raped her for 24 years.
But wait, it gets even worse. The sexual abuse of his father resulted in the birth of 7 children. Four of whom joined their mother, one died within a few days of breathing problems. The three remaining children were raised by Josef Fritzl and his wife. When the eldest daughter named Kerstin became seriously ill, Josef allowed Elizabeth to take her to a hospital, triggering a series of events that eventually led to the discovery.
2. The Gray Clan (Outlaw Family)
The Gray Clan consists of more than a dozen men and women living in a small town, all of them bearers of arms and hated by the government. Led by grandfather John Joe Gray, the Guild has been at war with local sheriffs and federal agencies for over 15 years. They say, “We fear no man, and we believe an eye for an eye.”
They grow their own food and let no officer enter their property. John Joe Gray became the oldest police stalemate in American history, lasting a few days before 15 years, before the prosecutor dropped the charges.
1. Colt Clan (Incest Family)
Some people may be uncomfortable reading this case as it involves sexual relationships within the family; so if you don’t want to read, just skip it.
Colt Clan is an Australian family discovered in 2013 and consists of nearly 40 members, ranging from grandparents to mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, aunts, uncles, nephews, brothers and sisters, all involved in various forms of incest. The case was so bizarre that the Australian government’s decision to make it public shocked everyone.
The incest began with two emigrant brothers and sisters and continued for four generations. The whole family lived in horrible conditions, the house was made of a tin roof with no water or electricity. Several members have suffered deformities because involving incest is scientifically a bad idea.
The family was exposed when a child heard the girl saying that one of her sisters was pregnant and they did not know which of her brothers was the father.
