Multi-millionaire adopts his adult girlfriend

Ms. N Ms. N
Yes, this is a true story. Multimillionaire John Goodman is involved in a wrongful death lawsuit for killing a couple's son in a car accident. The judge had said that money left in a trust for Goodman's children could not be touched. So Goodman is trying to protect his money by adopting his 42 year old girlfriend (he is 48).

What do you think? Obviously, he is only doing this to protect his money, but in the legal sense...his girlfriend is now his daughter. Should he still be sleeping with her?

She is only his daughter in name. It's fine for him to keep having sex with his girlfriend.

Ew. That's just gross. If he named her his daughter, she is his daughter. Hands off.

He shouldn't have been allowed to do this period, but whatever. He just shouldn't be allowed to marry her now.

I think continuing to sleep with her is pretty low down on the list of things he did wrong.

I'm much more appalled by the choosing to drive drunk, leaving the scene of the accident, going to such a length to hide money so the victim's family can't sue for it. etc. Is it wong to continue to sleep with her? Maybe. But he's done a whole lot of other things that are obviously very wrong.

His main problem is greed, not his desire to sleep with his girlfriend in my opinion

Thats horrible and disgusting. Hope they see through his BULLSH*T!

Now he should be arrested for having sex with his daughter. You just don't play the system that way. He did alot wrong in this situation. He killed their son, he owes them. Be a man and step up, and stop being an idiot who drinks and drives in the first place. Call a cab. This mess is his own fault.
That poor boy and his family

I don't see why sleeping with her would be such a big deal. After all, they are both consenting and adults, so that shouldn't be an issue. You can NOT get arrested for having sex with your children, as long as everyone is legal and consenting.

This kind of behavior has been heard of in the BDSM community, btw. Some mommy/ daddy and/ or son/ daughters legalize their relationships by having the "parent" adopting the "kid." They still have sex and no one is arrested.

Honestly, that's not what I think is poor behavior. He drove drunk and killed an innocent man, and he's circumventing the law so that he doesn't lose his money. That's just being a cheap bastard in my book.

...0_o well that's a bit...creepy.
I suppose as long as they're not blood related and they're a similar age it's not too bad.
I don't mind age differences but what I read about Morgan Freeman wanting to marry his step-granddaughter...t hat's what I'd call going a bit too far.

The sex part isn't wrong. Hiding his money is. The legal system should invalidate the adoption because it was clearly not done in good faith.

Yet an other reason to really dislike the upper 2 or 3 percent. So so awfully selfish and greedy. The man killed a person, and all he can think about is his fucking money.

He never should have been allowed to adopt her, but of course, the laws are usually made by The Rich, so he'll literally get away with murder.

I don't give a damn whether he sleeps with her or not. But, I'd NEVER sleep with someone as greedy as this asshole. More for her, I guess. $$$$$$$$ That's all people like that think about, their money. That's the sickening part. The greed.

While clever, it makes a mockery out of our legal system and the adoption system. Ted Nugent adopted his girlfriend at the time for guardianship reasons---basically she was 17 and he wanted to be able to have her own tour with him and not get in any kind of legal struggles about it if they attracted the eyes of the law. But, I think that's a bit different than what this guy did.

Can he still have sex with her? Absolutely. It's not against Florida law because there is no blood relation between the two of them. Is the guy being seriously shady? Definitely. Will the adoption be reversed? Probably, because it was done solely out of a desire to hide assets.

Sigh...it seems like in United States and many other countries around the world, money talks, and if you're rich you can pretty much get away with anything. Sad but true.

Um, yes the hell you can be arrested for having sex with blood relatives. There cannot be any blood relationship between the two parties; it's incest no matter how you try to package it.

What happens in the BDSM community is nothing at all like having sex with your children, even if they go through with a legal adult adoption---there's no DNA link there.

well, sorry for the mix up, as I obviously didn't do my research. After checking my facts, I got my incest laws mixed up with a few other foreign countries where that kind of behavior is acceptable.

Also, I am quite aware that what happens in the BDSM community is not the same as sexual relations with blood relatives. I wasn't making that kind of parallel at all. Sorry if that caused you any confusion.

Instead, I was trying to liken it to Goodman's case. Obviously, the motivations are different, but the process is still the same.

I apologize if my response sounded harsh, it wasn't meant to be.

The funny thing is I just read an article about a man in Germany who was on trial for raping his daughter for thirty years. He says it was consentual, she says it was rape with physical force involved. He was cleared of the 500 counts of rape the prosecutor tried to hang him with, but was convicted of incest.

It's quite a fascinating set of laws that concern relationships between family members.

I think it is not my place to comment on this situation, since I only know what I am reading. However from what I am reading, I will have to say that it does make a mockery out of adoption laws and it should not be allowed. I really don't see a big deal in the two of them sleeping together, they are not really father/daughter, so I don't see an issue, but I see an issue with him trying to adopt her.

it's fine, no biggie

But yeah, I actually know exactly what trial you're talking about. Family laws are weird and difficult; what can be OK for adopted relations is not OK for blood relations. Case in point: Woody Allen's marriage to his step daughter.

But I think one reason blood relation laws are so finicky and harsh is to prevent children with mental and physical diseases, which is incredibly common of children who are produced by incest.

This.

I don't even want to know what happens in this situation. The whole thing is just messed up.
