Thanks for the ama! Not sure if this is an appropriate question, but since you’re a family therapist I’ll give it a shot lol

So about a few years back a redditor posted a ama about having a sexual relationship with his mother. Reading the entire ama, it seemed that despite the negative stigma of having an incestuous relationship, he came out of that affair “normal” and unfazed by it all. The mother, father and son were all ok with the situation, and he even stated his parent’s relationship improved(sexually).As a therapist, what’s ur take on this situation? Can you truly come out of that relationship normal? Would you consider this relationship as some form of Stockholm syndrome.

His background: white/upper middle class/ educated/ non religious. Incest relationship began when he was 14.

Here’s the Ama I’m talking about if anyone is interested: https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/nmmjr/iama_man_who_had_a_sexual_relationship_with_his/
