There it is ... I've been waiting for the "two consenting adults who don't intend to breed" argument.
Did not come from a conservative ladies and gentlemen. And I've not seen it from one in all my time here.
Some of us prefer to be human beings and not simply animals who like to rut with anything that makes us horny. I get the idea that some folks feel like we should get it on with whatever floats our boat, but sex is not the be-all and end-all of life.
You guys are like gluttons who can't stop eating and resent it when someone tells you perhaps you should control your appetites.
Morals & ethics of society. On one hand, it's taboo for a reason to marry and/or procreate with your offspring
BUT, and this also touches on morality & ethics, because how does that get discussed socially if it's a mental health problem?
America doesn't exactly have a great track record with respectfully discussing mental health, adding incestuous marriage isn't going to make it any easier to take seriously (again, IF there's mental issues)
The woman obviously had her kids young and lost them young (17 year age diff between her and daughter) One has to wonder how both being a young mother and then not impacted her mental health, and if it had anything to do with marrying her kids.
