Could be that one slept with another ones husband. Could be one borrowed money and never paid it back. Could be someone accused the other of something horrible. It could be many things.

They are just like that; adult issues! If your mother considers that you are not yet old enough to know some issues, it is good to respect her opinion. I believe she knows what is good for you and what is not. The fact that you are not being told those issues means that there will be no harm even if you stay without knowing. You never know whether knowing them might prove otherwise.

It is their adult issues and I guarantee you when your mother considers you old enough to know and understand them she will tell you.

The possibilities are endless. It could be something as simple as someone borrowed money and did not repay it, or someone said something mean about a spouse or child, or much more complex.

And the reasons why your mom does not want to tell you could be very complex as well. She may not want you to think badly about the perceived wrong-doer.

Your mom is trying to protect you. Let her do that for you. Soon enough you will find out what the answer is. I know your curiosity is killing you, but be patient. I found out our family "secret" when I was about 20. My father's mother thought my mother had Native American blood in her lineage and warned my father she might "scalp" him in his sleep. Feelings were bad after that. Stupid, right? Big secret!

Like I said, sometimes "adult" secrets are not worth worrying about.
