36 year old Monica Mares and her son, Caleb Peterson whom she gave up for adoption right after he was born 19 years ago, have fallen in love with each other after they were reunited, Daily Mail reports.
The mother and son, whose forbidden love affair could land them lengthy jail terms, have declared they are madly in love and nothing will tear them apart.
They have vowed to fight for their right to have a sexual relationship and are appealing to the public to help donate to their legal fund and support them.
Mother-of-nine Monica was just 16 when she gave birth to her son and reconnected with him over Facebook before arranging to meet up last Christmas.
The 36-year-old said it was almost love at first sight for them when they met. They soon began a sexual relationship and Caleb moved in with his mum and her two youngster children – his own half siblings.
In an interview with Daily Mail Online, the couple told how they are willing to risk everything to be together and have decided to go public with their affair in a bid to raise awareness of Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA) relationships.
There relationship came to light when they were reported to the police and charged with incest, a fourth-degree felony in New Mexico where they both reside.
They are banned from having contact with each other – they were interviewed separately – and live apart in Clovis, New Mexico, while they await a trial next month.
Currently, Mares is not allowed to see any of her children yet she maintains that it has all been worth it.
