A woman who gave her son up for adoption when she was 16-years-old is now fighting to remain in a sexual relationship with him after they were reunited 19-years later

Monica Mares (36) will have to stand trial charged with incest, over the relationship she has with her son Caleb Peterson (19).

The couple could spend 18-months behind bars if found guilty by a court in New Mexico, US. 

However, the amorous mum and son decided to go public to raise awareness of Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA) and make it legal for them to have a sexual relationship.

Monica gave Caleb up for adoption soon after he was born and only met him again after reconnecting on Facebook.

The two promptly moved in together and Caleb says he fell in love with his mum in part because she looked after him.

He told the Daily Mail: “I never had anyone cook me meals or give me anything.

“I never got anything my entire life and she went out of her way to make me happy.

“After about a week or so I started having feelings for her, and I guess I fell in love.”

Monica, a mum-of-nine, reciprocated her son’s love and now says she would be ready to give up the right to see her other kids if she was asked to choose between them and Caleb.

“The first time we were physical we ended up holding hands, and then we ended up kissing – and the kissing led to other things,” she said.

“I felt comfortable with him and we fell even more deeply in love.”
