They say love knows no boundaries. It is willing to go against all odds, that’s how strong an emotion like love can be. But what if the love you are feeling breaks social norms? The article today is about a daughter and father who decided to be engaged and start a family of their own.
A woman from America shared how she became engaged to her father. It took them more than a decade apart and only got reunited when she was 17. When they got reunited, they decided to get engaged and start a family of their own.
The daughter and father got reunited through the help of technology. They started to chat with each other online for a few weeks and the two felt that there’s spark between them in a romantic way. The woman who wants to remain anonymous spoke to New York Magazine’s Science of Us to share her love story with her own father :
“It was so weird and confusing I was seeing my dad for the first time in forever but it was also like, He’s so good-looking! I saw him as my dad but then also part of me was like, I’m meeting this guy who I have been talking to over the internet and really connecting with and I find him attractive.”
The instant attraction was undeniable and it got deeper as she decided to stay with him for a week. It only took them 5 days to share how they fancy each other. Before they get to sleep together, the woman confessed to her father that he is her first lover. Fast forward to the present, they are now an engaged couple and plans on having their own children together as well. Their relatives knows their relationship and it appears that it is not a big deal to them anyway.
The only person who still remains in the dark was her mother. The woman confirmed that she will tell everything to her mother once they already moved to New Jersey. It is known on New Jersey that consensual, incestuous relationships where both parties are over 18 are not being punished. The woman is optimistic that her mother will accept it and start to visit her grandchildren in the near future.
On potential genetic problems that could face their children
“I wouldn’t risk having a kid if I thought it would be harmful. I’ve done my research. Incest has been around as long as humans have Everybody just needs to deal with it as long as nobody is getting hurt or getting pressured or forced.”
Would she tell their children that their dad was both their father and grandfather?
“We’ve decided that most likely we won’t, she said”I don’t want to give them any problems” Incest remains to be a sensitive topic as it breaks the so-called social norms and most people believe that there are consequences that the incest couple has to deal with sooner or later.
