A teenager has caused quite the uproar by revealing her plans to marry her biological father, whom she hadn’t seen for 12 years.

The 18-year-old shared in an interview with The Cut that she and her biological father has been dating for two years and were excited to be going ahead with their unique wedding plans.

The woman said that her dad had reached out to her after they had been estranged for over a decade. They first communicated online before meeting up.

So Much In Common

“We chitchatted online for a few days and found out we were similar,” she said. “We shared the same favourite TV shows – The Simpsons and The Big Bang Theory – and we both love to draw.”

They soon discovered that the couple had “strong feelings for each other,” which were clearly different to conventional daddy/daughter love.

“We discussed whether it was wrong and then we kissed. And then we made out, and then we made love for the first time. That was when I lost my virginity,” she said.

We’re Planning A ‘Unique’ Wedding

They are now planning to get married, despite this not being legally binding.

However, the teen is keen for their wedding to be ‘different’.

“I want it to represent our uniqueness, so we aren’t doing a white wedding,” she said.

Black Dresses And Bowties

“My dress will be black,” the young woman said.

“The colour scheme is black and purple, and we are both going to wear Converse tennis shoes. He’s wearing jeans and a nice dress shirt. He says he’s not wearing a bow tie, but it’s my wedding and I am saying that he is.

“The tables will have bouquets of trees without leaves to represent our marriage, which will be like a growing tree.”

The controversial bride-to-be said that her mum doesn’t know about her relationship with her biological father.

“My grandmother and grandfather — my fiancé’s parents — are going to attend and my grandpa will give me away.”

It’s A Case Of GSA

This is a case of Genetic Sexual Attraction, also known as “consensual incest”, which usually occurs when children and parents reunite, after they have not seen or communicated with each other for many years.

Blow Up

As expected, the story ignited fury on social media with many comments calling the union distasteful.

“This is so wrong, so so so wrong,” read one comment.

“I wish someone would step in and save this poor girl.”


But the teen said regular people simply misunderstood their relationship.

“I just don’t understand why I’m judged for being happy,” she said.

“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.”

What Is GSA?

The term Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA) was, according to The Cut, coined in the late 1980s by the founder of a support group for adopted children who had recently reconnected with their biological parents.

The group founder said she discovered that romantic and sexual feelings occurred in about 50 per cent of cases where estranged parents were reunited with their children as adults.

  • Is this even legal?
    I think the father is taking full advantage of a young inexperienced girl who may have fallen in love with a man she has missed growing up with.
    I really hope this is stopped.


  • WEll I thought that it was illegal …I guess not


  • Omg what’s wrong with people nowadays


  • This is weird. They will be making their beds beds and will have to lie in them.
    Will be problems ahead


  • That’s so messed up, and so wrong for the father to act that way given that he’s the adult and she’s still a teenager.


  • Oh gross, think they both need their brains assessing as that’s so wrong


  • WHAT! That is so wrong.


  • Wow, I can’t believe the grandparents are attending the ceremony.


  • So wrong on so many levels. He may not have raised her but they still share DNA


  • Kinda sounds like when people fall in love with that kidnappers


  • Wow, this is obviously some sort of mental health condition resulting from the trauma of being separated. It’s completely wrong though and someone should step in and stop this from continuing


  • Is this even legally allowed? This is so concerning and says more about the father than anything. It’s a parent’s job to protect their child and keep them safe… not this.


  • This is crazy. The father should have done the right thing and stopped this before it even started.


  • Oh my. Have a father daughter relationship!!!!


  • Absolutely not, this is so wrong!


  • This is so wrong.. hypothetically if they had a child the child would suffer a grate deal of issues (medically and probably emotionally later down the track) so your mum is your sister and your mum and your dad is your grandpa and dad? It really isn’t right.


  • This is legally and immorally wrong as far as I can tell. Yes they may have the same feelings and love the same things but what they are doing is not right.


  • I think they have similar likes as they are very closely genetically related, too close to be having a sexual relationship.


  • That is disgusting and awful she shouldn’t marry her biological father.


  • This is very very wrong. Someone need them to explain.I think father need to understand the situation most.
