Unusual story of a romance between mother and son

Any sentence containing the word “love” is cliché in social networks. “Love conquers all”, “Love pierces mountains”, “Love has no limits” , commonly read on the internet. And it seems that we agree with what they say. There are so many cases of people who have achieved the most unattainable feats by love, these phrases have become virtually absolute truths.

Now, I think everything changes when we learn that a mother and her biological son have become an engaged couple kissing, caressing, and write love letters to each other.

Meet Monica Mares, 36, and his son Caleb Peterson. Both live in Clovis, New Mexico and according to convincingly say, are deeply in love.

Caleb, who had been raised by others, one day began to wonder about her biological mother . We then investigated in Facebook and gave their whereabouts. He contacted, and days later they had agreed to meet in person.

Monica, mother of 9 children besides Caleb, was highly excited.

“The first time I met my son was so happy I gave him a big hug , “ Monica said. “I went to look for her father ‘s house in Texas. I called and asked for him. I felt butterflies in my stomach. We were outside the house and I saw just knew it was him. He came crying and gave me a hug. It was almost love at first sight, but before that, it was mother ‘s love. He gave me a hug son. Then we got home and started living together. I felt that I had met someone new and I began to fall in love. First I said, ‘I’m sorry, I do not know how you will react, I’m your mother and you are my son, but I’m falling for you’. He replied, ‘you also know who I am, but I was scared to tell you’ ….

Caleb also addressed the issue.

“Nobody ever gave me or anything cooked. She was the first person after one or two weeks to have met, I began to fall in love. This goes far beyond a mother and child relationship. In some ways I see her as a mother, but most do not. I never thought I was doing something wrong, he did not feel wrong, he felt normal, as if he had met a girl in a bar. Never thought we’d get in trouble for this, she is an adult, I am an adult, and both make our own decisions , “ said Caleb.

And of course, they never thought they would have problems, but both social networks as the law have infuriated with this case. Many have used the word “incest” to refer to the relationship that Monica with her son Caleb, and because in some countries the act constitutes a crime, both risk a sentence of 18 months in prison for this reason.
