Sometimes we fall in love with the wrong person. He’s a bad boy or a good-for-nothing cheater, yet you love them — with every ounce of your body. But, what if the man you love is related to you? As the Dominican saying goes, “Los primos se exprimen.” (Cousins are for squeezing). I rather not get with a family member, but it’s been know to happen en el campo!
And it’s also (sort of) happening in Pennsylvania. Roland Bosee Jr., 68, and Nino Esposito, 78, have been an item since 1970. When SCOTUS legalized gay marriage earlier this year, they decided to get married.
But, here's the thing: Nino is legally Roland's father. In 2012, the lovebirds decided they needed to make their relationship legal, so they decided upon adoption. Many gay couples used adoption laws as a way to gain legal recognition as a family.
The couple tried to overturn the adoption earlier this year, so they could become husband and husband. Unfortunately, their request was rejected, so they are forced to remain as father and son. Talk about a tragic love story.
