Father & Daughter Having an Affair Can't Seem to Stay Away From Each Other

Twisted 34

Recently, we were all shocked to find out about the Ohio woman who unwittingly married her father. Valerie Spruill made headlines when she went public with her discovery that her dead husband had actually been her biological father. While Valerie says she had no idea while married to him that he was her dad, she suspects that he may have known. That's bizarro enough, but now comes another tale of incestuous love, this one from Britain.

In this case, the daughter does know her lover is her father. And he knows his lover is his daughter. Both of them have already been arrested over their affair. Yet, they can't seem to lose that lovin' feelin'.

Growing up, Nicola Yates never really had a dad. Her biological father, Andrew Butler, left the family when Nicola was barely out of toddlerhood. But at 20, Nicola decided she wanted a "proper" relationship with her father, so she began the process of tracking him down, despite her mother's objections.

Soon Nicola's mother, Katrina, realized that the new guy Nicola was living with, whom she hadn't introduced the family to, was actually her ex-husband, who is Nicola's father. She discovered this when Nicola's step-sister found compromising pics of Nicola and Andrew on Nicola's cellphone. Says Nicola's mom: "I couldn't believe it. I was devastated. I could see the evidence but I wouldn't believe that it was real."

Nicola and Andrew lived together as boyfriend and girlfriend for several years. Reportedly, Nicola even became pregnant, but the child was aborted. Eventually, Katrina told police about their illicit relationship. Andrew was jailed for 10 months and had to register as a sex offender. Nicola was given a suspended sentence.

But as soon as Andrew got out, Nicola, now 28, disappeared and cut off contact with her family. Her mother believes that's because she's back with her father slash BF. Nicola is clearly a woman with severe daddy issues.

The judge who sentenced them said that he recognizes that their relationship had "genuine affection." But he says that Andrew is "manipulative" and Nicola is "immature." Ya think?!!!

Remember what Woody Allen said when he admitted having an affair with his girlfriend Mia Farrow's adopted daughter, Soon-Yi. He said, "The heart wants what it wants. There's no logic to those things."

Shudder. I'd say the logic is clear for most of us. But, for the sake of argument, since Nicola and her father are both of legal age and consenting, and were of legal age and consenting when the relationship began, should they be left alone, especially if they agree not to breed?

i'm sorry, but no. nevermind the inbreeding - even if they did procreate, it's usually years of inbreeding that affects your offspring, not just once (although anything is possible). the bigger detriment here is the emotional and psychological damage that's being done. as consenting adults, unless there's actively enforced incest laws, i doubt there's much that the police / a court can do. but do you really expect someone to live the rest of their lives in secret, lying about their relationship? i can't say i know the answer, but i know that logically and biologically speaking it's wrong and immoral.

(and calling this guy her "father" is really insulting. i doubt this man has the slightest inkling on how to be an actual parent!!)

Yuck! I completely agree with dirtiekittie, this is not a father. It is absolutely disgusting. I would not want them to have children because they are incestuous. Apparently very little is taboo. Let them be together because then no one else has to be subject to a relationship with these loons.

This is creepy as hell, makes me loose faith in humanity.

It amazes me every day how little faith I have in our society.  There seems to be no line that can't be crossed anymore.

This made me cringe so hard.

Creepy, unhealthy, gross? YES. But, honestly...I think that, at this point, they should be left alone. They know what they're doing, and they still want to be together after facing jail time. They are consenting adults.

Would I personally do it? Nope. But ya know what? How does their relationship affect me or mine? It doesn't. Same with homosexual, polyamory, polygamy, etc. With anything, I only have two concerns; 1) are all participants consenting? And 2) are all participants of legal age? So long as the answer to both those questions is yes, who am I to judge and why should I care?

Take his testes and her uterus - then leave them be.  The heart wants what the heart wants, right?

What happened with woody Allen was different. His DNA is not inside his wife.
