    Thats assuming the attraction began when she was a child.

    Oh, so you are claiming that he just suddenly developed this sexual attraction to her when she turned 20?

    The idea of becoming sexually involved with someone you played a hand in raising (even if it was only a minor hand) is kind of weird and vaguely creepy. I absolutely agree with you there. However, given the circumstances at play here, there really isn't anything technically "wrong" with it.

    There are plenty of unions out there far creepier than this one that no one seems to have any problem with whatsoever.
    I don't know if he is a pedophile...innocent until proven guilty.

    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.

    Can you provide any evidence to support the claim that any of those things took place here?
    You don't understand the grooming process and how effective it can be, especially with someone who comes from a background such as this girl, and most of those adopted children.

    That seems to be the case. There is no evidence that it happened earlier.

Woody started taking her to basketball games, and the rest is tabloid history. So, he hardly 'had his eye on her' from the time she was a child."

    I have to wonder about HER too. To get with your mom's boyfriend? Pretty skanky IMO.

    I think it's definitely problematic. However, if a person doesn't act on those impulses, is still attracted to the child in question as an adult, and is able to maintain a consensual monogamous relationship with that adult, it obviously can't be all that big of a deal.

    Again, this is all a red herring anyway, as you can't demonstrate that he even was attracted to her as a child.

    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.

    Oh, it doesn't have to be his own child. It could be the child of a friend, the child of his wife, etc.
