The woman, Monica Mares, fell for her son 18 years after giving him up for adoption. She contacted him on Facebook a couple of years back and picked him up from his new father's home in 2015. After staying together for a couple of weeks, the duo professed their feelings for one another. 


Both mother and son are ready to go to jail as incest is a criminal offence in the United States. The couple is awaiting trial and meanwhile have been ordered by the court not to see or talk to each other. 


The duo plans to move to some other country which allows such relationships once they are out of jail. Her son, Peterson, was born when she was just 16. She soon gave him up for adoption and since the two never had a mother-son relationship, they soon developed romantic feelings for each other.
