NEW JERSEY – An 18-year-old woman is reportedly planning to marry her long-lost father and relocate to New Jersey—where she said incest between adults is legal.
New York Magazine reports the unnamed couple is living in the Great Lakes region, and the story has been making news in the wake of an interview the daughter gave to the magazine regarding her relationship with her father.
The woman reportedly hadn’t seen her father for 12 years, and she said she was immediately attracted to him when they met again.
While incestuous relationships are considered taboo by many, the couple’s situation is not unheard of. The term Genetic Sexual Attraction was coined to describe the intense attraction some feel when they are reunited with a relative they didn’t grow up with.

Attraction between father and daughter is reportedly the least commonly reported form of GSA.
The woman told New York Magazine she lost her virginity to her father a few days after they were reunited.
The woman said she plans to have a large family, and she said she isn’t worried about her children suffering potential issues due to incest.
In regard to the social stigma of her relationship, she told the magazine: “I just don’t understand why I’m judged for being happy. We are two adults who brought each other out of dark places. People need to research incest and GSA because they don’t get it and I don’t think they understand how often it happens.”
