A woman in Ohio is speaking out for the first time about her marriage in hopes that people can read what she has to say and make it through rough times of their own
. The woman's name is Valerie. She is 60 now. She says that her mom and dad dated when they were in their early teens. They had Valerie and Valerie was raised by her grandparents who told her that they were her parents. Later she found out a family friend was her mom who died in 1984. At some point, Valerie started dating her dad and they ended up getting married. She thinks he knew, but does not know for sure. It was only after her husband/dad had been dead for 6 years that an uncle came to her and told her the truth. She has been in therapy ever since.
