    Why would the relationship just pop up out of nowhere when she turned 20?



    Playing devil's advocate here; if someone had an inappropriate attraction to another person as a child, but waited until they were an adult to consummate it, and never went after anyone else in that same fashion, why would that even be particularly wrong?



    Pretty major parenting failure to say the least.
    1) You just reiterated my point! This relationship did NOT just pop up out of nowhere. Something was definitely going on beforehand, so thanks for helping me out in my argument!

    2) Yes, it's totally disgusting to lust after a child. You don't understand that? I would think that's a given.

    3) I have no idea what kind of parent the mother was. I am not familiar with her at all, and there are PLENTY of parents out there who are less than attentive.

    Has the step daughter he married ever claimed that?

    Again, Chris, if you don't act on that attraction until the person in question is fully grown, marry them, and then never display such attraction to anyone else afterwards, "disgusting" is as "disgusting" does.

    It's kind of hard to argue that anyone would have actually been objectively harmed by such a turn of events.

    You are entitled to your opinion and to think this behavior is acceptable of course. IMO, it's sick and so is he. Nothing you say will change my mind about this.

    They don't get his jokes
    That's pretty much the way I see it, too. Allen doesn't actually like kids all that much. He only tolerated Farrow's, because he was in a relationship with her. I don't even know how she convinced him to have one of their own. That and they didn't even live together the whole time they were involved. Each had their own apartment on opposite sides of Central Park if I recall correctly.
    I'd be very surprised if this turns out to be true. To anyone who knows even a little bit about Allen, this just doesn't fit at all. But hey, who knows. Stranger things have happened. I just find it a little odd, the man being almost 80 years old, that no other allegations of pedophilia ever surfaced before.

    A man who married his step daughter, and this doesn't fit? Oh the irony.

    They're still together, they seem to be fairly happy with one another, and she's never claimed that the relationship was inappropriate before her twenties.

    That's all I'm saying.

    Why be so quick to judge?

    Having read the young womans letter, she grew up with severe mental problems as a result of her time with Allen. She has eating disorders and went through a period where she cut herself. She has esteem issues. My guess is that she's finally reached a time in her life where she can publicly face her issues. Read her letter to the NYT and then form your opinion.
