A 43-year-old Oklahoma woman and her 25-year-old biological daughter are facing charges of incest after authorities learned the pair were legally married in Oklahoma last March. According to a police affidavit, officers learned about the marriage late last month during a child welfare investigation. (There’s a shock).
Patricia Ann Spann and her daughter, Misty Velvet Dawn Spann (!), of Duncan, Oklahoma, are each being held on $10,000 bonds after making initial appearances in Stephens County district court. Patricia Spann told a state child services investigator that she had lost custody of three children, who were then adopted by their paternal grandmother, but reunited with her daughter (Misty Velvet Dawn) two years ago. She claims they “hit it off” and that she thought their marriage was okay because her name wasn’t on her daughter’s birth certificate, according to the affidavit.
But wait, there’s more! Detectives later learned she had also previously married one of her sons. That 2008 marriage was annulled 15 months later.
This whole, “marriage equality” thing is getting out of hand.
What’s next, a poly-amorous incestuous marriage movement?
Ironically, Oklahoma often gets branded by progressives as the home of right-wing, Christian fundamentalists. Yet, how easy is it to get married in that state? I mean, same sex, same last name, no red flags? Apparently blood tests and the like are no longer needed, but are there no parameters or restrictions?
Perhaps we are in need of a new short-form that those seeking to be married must fill out prior to planning the ceremony.
Question 1) Are your last names already the same?
Question 2) If so, do you call your prospective marriage partner mommy or daddy, son or daughter?
Question 3) Are you actually immediate family members?
But I can already hear the ACLU and other leftist organizations bellowing “Love is love, let it be you crazy, right-wing, Christian oppressors! Aren’t you pro-choice when it comes to marriage?!”
