A mother and her son whom she gave up for adoption are now willing to be imprisoned to defend their relationship. Both of them are currently facing charges of incest, a fourth-degree felony in New Mexico, United States. They said they want to raise awareness regarding Genetic Sexual Attractions (GSA) relationships, even if it means going behind bars.
According to the Daily Mail UK, GSA is the “sexual attraction between close relatives, such as siblings or half-siblings, a parent and offspring, or first and second cousins, who first meet as adults.”
Monica Mares, 36, said she gave up her son for adoption when she gave birth to him at 16. Named Carlos at the time, Peterson is now 19 years old. He was adopted when he was still a baby, which was why he never got to know his real parents.
That is, until he saw his biological mom on Facebook and started talking to her.
According to Monica, she was very excited to meet her son in person. When they first met, she knew she loved her son as a mother. However, when Peterson came home to live with her, Monica said she started getting ‘crazy feelings’ towards him.
“It felt like I met somebody new in my life and I fell in love with him,” Monica said.
The mother then could not take it anymore and decided to profess her love for her own son:
“At first I told him, ‘I’m sorry I don’t know how you are going to react to this. I’m your mom and you’re my son, but I’m falling in love with you’. And he said: ‘You know what I am too. I was scared to let you know’. He was falling in love with his mom and I was falling in love with my son. We talked about it and we took off to the park. I said, ‘Would you ever date your mom?’ And he said: ‘would you ever date your son?’ And I said, ‘Honest truth yes I would’.”
Sounds like something straight out of a telenovela, doesn’t it?
However, it didn’t take long before their incestuous relationship was reported by their neighbors. Illegal in all 50 states in the Unites States, incest could put the couple behind bars for a very long time.
