And I don't like to judge people based on heresay...but the OP's woman's testimony cannot be ignored either.
I just don't know.
However...I disagree that it is just 'vaguely creepy' that he ended up marrying his ex-step daughter...I would call that VERY creepy.
Not illegal, of course. But very creepy.
She was at most 22 and he was 47 when the relationship started...that is pretty creepy to begin with, IMO.
And she was the adopted daughter of his long time companion, the former being at most 10 years old when he started dating the latter...that makes it very creepy.
It also, IMO, lends more credibility to the OP story...since it is clear this guy is capable (and has in the past) been attracted to young females who are the children of women he is dating.

I have to wonder about HER too. To get with your mom's boyfriend? Pretty skanky IMO.
Again, this is all a red herring anyway, as you can't demonstrate that he even was attracted to her as a child.

incest legal definition of incest. incest synonyms by the Free Online Law Dictionary.In a number of jurisdictions, incest statutes extend to relationships among individuals related by affinity. Such statutes proscribe sexual relations between stepfathers and stepdaughters, stepmothers and stepsons, or brothers-and sisters-in-law, and such relations are punishable as incest. It is necessary for the relationship of affinity to exist at the time the intermarriage or sexual intercourse occurs in order for the act to constitute incest. In the event that the relation-ship has terminated prior to the time that the act takes place, the intermarriage or sexual inter-course is not regarded as incest.
