When Travis Fieldgrove was reunited with the biological daughter he never knew, the pair initially enjoyed a normal parent-child relationship. Paul, Nebraska was sentenced to two years in prison on May 30 for felony incest. The mother arranged a meeting, and Fieldgrove and Kershner soon entered into a father-daughter relationship. Then, on October 1, they were married. Whether this was a lie told to police remains unclear. Either way, DNA tests have since confirmed that they are indeed father and daughter.
Married Father And Daughter In Nebraska Face Incest Charges
The present study evaluated the relationship of three variables reportedly characteristic of families in which father-daughter incest occurs to women's sex-role functioning and attitudes toward heterosexual interactions. The results showed that a sexualized father-daughter relationship was correlated with negative male traits e. Discord in the parental marriage was associated with positive female traits and negatively with attributions of danger to male sexuality. Low levels of paternal encouragement of autonomy correlated with negative female traits spinelessness, subordination to others and low positive masculine traits competitiveness. The implications of the findings to our understanding of incest are discussed.
How Fathers Influence Their Daughters’ Romantic Relationships
The research literature is becoming increasingly clear about the substantial importance of fathers in the lives of their children. Unfortunately, far too many children in the United States and throughout the world experience father loss. As discussed previously on this blog, father loss can negatively impact children in a variety of different ways, even on a biological level. Compounding this issue are myths about fatherhood that are perpetuated in our society, including those that can lead to misleading assumptions about dads that can diminish the contributions active fathers make in the lives of their children.
I need another perspective on a situation that has been bothering me. I am married, have a year-old step-daughter who does not live in our state she's with her mother but visits fairly regularly. She has always been very close to her dad--they are both affectionate, touchy-feely people. Since reaching adolescence, the physical closeness hasn't tempered as I would have expected--just recently she jumped on his back with her arms around his neck and hung onto him as he bent forward some.
