Humans are dependent on parental help for a large portion of their lifespans compared to other mammals. Love has therefore been seen as a mechanism to promote parental support of children for this extended time period. Furthermore, researchers as early as Charles Darwin himself identified unique features of human love compared to other mammals and credit love as a major factor for creating social support systems that enabled the development and expansion of the human species.
Child sexual abuse Sex between an adult family member and a child is usually considered a form of child sexual abuse  known as child incestuous abuse,  and for many years has been the most reported form of incest. Father—daughter and stepfather—stepdaughter sex is the most commonly reported form of adult-child incest, with most of the remaining involving a mother or stepmother.
In a news story, BBC reported, "Close-knit family life in India masks an alarming amount of sexual abuse of children and teenage girls by family members, a new report suggests.
Oldest and only daughters were more likely to be the victims of incest. It was also stated that the incest experience was psychologically harmful to the woman in later life, frequently leading to feelings of low self-esteem, very unhealthy sexual activity, contempt for other women, and other emotional problems.
During interrogation by police, several of the adults openly admitted to engaging in many forms of sexual activity, up to and including full intercourse, multiple times with the children.

According to Hideo Tokuoka, "When Americans think of incest, they think of fathers and daughters; in Japan one thinks of mothers and sons" due to the extensive media coverage of mother-son incest there. These sons are typically mid adolescent to young adult, and, unlike parent-initiated incest, the incidents involve some kind of physical force.
Although the mothers may be accused of being seductive with their sons and inviting the sexual contact, this is contrary to evidence. In some cases, mother-son incest is best classified as acquaintance rape of the mother by the adolescent son. In this form, it is believed to be the most common form of intrafamilial abuse.
I only feel sorry for my mom and dad, I wish they could be happy for us. We love each other. What we have is the most beautiful thing in the world.
Senator Rick Santorum commented on a pending U. Supreme Court case involving sodomy laws primarily as a matter of Constitutional rights to Privacy and Equal Protection under the Law: Nephew-niece marriages predominantly occur among foreign immigrants. Sexual acts between an adult family member and a minor are illegal, though they are not classified as incest, but as abuse of the authority such an adult has over a minor, comparable to that of a teacher, coach or priest.
