A Spanish Father-Daughter Couple Want To Keep Their New Baby, Say They’re In Love

It is true that you can’t choose the one you love, but surely this has to be off limits.

A father and daughter couple from the Spanish island of Mallorca have had their love child taken away from them after going public with their incestuous relationship.

The pair insist they are in love and should be allowed to keep their new baby daughter, who is also the father’s granddaughter and, technically, the mother’s half-sister.

The father Cris, 36, and daughter Sara, 18, aren’t breaking any laws in Spain but have had their child temporarily taken away by the state, reports Cronica Balear.

“We may be father and daughter but she has never seen me as a parent because I am much more like a friend than a father figure,” the baby’s dad said of his relationship with his teenage daughter.

It boggles the mind as to how such a situation has been allowed to transpire but the man identified only as Cris doesn’t see anything unusual about it.

“Our relationship started like they all do, with flirting, getting along and then trust,” he said.
The reasoning for the state removing the child is based on concerns held by social service officials over potential abuse suffered by the father’s ex-wife after she reported him to the authorities.

But the 36-year-old dismissed the claim, telling reporters his ex-wife was simply jealous.

“My ex-wife is jealous and cannot understand the relationship. So she is trying to destroy it,” he said.

The story has been picked up by global news outlets in the past 24 hours, sparking controversy over whether the child should be allowed to return to her parents.

Incest is not illegal in Spain and the age of consent is 16.

The father has denounced any “moral judgments” hurled his way in regards to his unique family situation.

“Everything was going very well until people found out about it,” he told the Spanish newspaper.

The mother of the child is the eldest of five siblings and shares her father’s resolve.

“When I fell pregnant I knew I wanted to keep it, I have always wanted to be a mother,” she said.

The young girl was reportedly given two options by authorities shortly after she gave birth. She could either give the child up for adoption, or raise it alone in state-sponsored centre.

“My relationship may be unusual but it would be worse for a child to be given up for adoption or grow up in a centre,” she said.

She said the couple decided against having an abortion because they “don’t care what people think”.

“People say (the relationship) is wrong, well I respect their opinion but I do not care,” she told the local paper.
