My Mom Slept with My Teenage Boyfriend

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

How do they go on after they've been betrayed by the woman they loved most? Her husband tells us.


We told you about Beth Modica, the mother of four who was sentenced yesterday to two years in jail for having sex with two teenage boys--including her daughter's boyfriend. Now, her husband, Paul, tells momlogic his side of the story.

Momlogic: How are you and your children doing?
Paul: Right now, my children are doing as good as can be expected. They are strong. Over the last several months, they have impressed me with their maturity and strength when dealing with this horrible situation. They have humbled me. I never realized how strong my children are. It's amazing, as viewable yesterday in the courtroom while my daughter read her victim impact statement.

ML: Where will you and your family go from here?
Paul: I have four children. My two daughters are 14 and 10, and my two sons are 17 and 12. Now, we catch our breath. For months, I have made sure my children have jumped back into their lives. We don't sit around the house feeling sorry for ourselves. We have gotten on with our lives. Now that their mom is in prison, we will deal with whatever curves we face. My kids did nothing wrong and we walk with our heads held high. I have filed for divorce, and I have custody of the kids.

ML: How has your wife's sentence affected your children?
Paul: It's too early to see, but my two younger children do visit my wife. She's been incarcerated since April. They do visit her in jail, and now that she's going to prison, it's too early to tell the impact it will have on them.

ML: What has helped you during this difficult time?
Paul: The outpouring of support by our community, friends, and strangers has been unbelievable for my children. That's one of the key elements as to why my children have stayed so strong. They were never made to feel like they were the bad guys in the situation.

Do you have any words of support for Paul and his family? Comment below.

Wow…I’m impressed by this father’s strength and ability to look forward for his family during such a horrible, dark time. I can’t imagine enduring such a public embarassment. My prayers are with him and his children!

I am so happy that this dad is staying strong for his family. I pray that they will hang in there strong and make it through. This story however, should be titled “My mother is a child molester” I will never understand why when we read stories like this about women we read terms like “slept with” “had sex with” or “seduced” etc. If she had been a man we would be reading terms like “molested” and “assaulted” and “child rapist”. Wake up people it is case of child molestation just as much when it is a woman as when it is a man commiting the crime.

What’s up with this weird trend of older women seducing young teenage boys? It’s beyond cougar creepy, it’s SICK. July 11, 2008, 9:57 PM

This father is being an amazing man, and daddy. I cannot imagine doing this to the man I love, much less to a teenager who is one of the many victims in this situation.
Paul, if you want a real woman who will always be true to you, email me…
wish finding a wonderful man who knows how to be a responsible person would be as easy as an email..hmm lol

hi it is not she has done, it is the culture practice which women get prey to it as suppose a man is alone and elderly women who have done the sex since more than four month …so what she will do it … i think it is not her fault …it is the fault of living style as they live

cougar creepy she is creepy looking I am 46 and not attracted to her how could young boys????

This is ridiculous! Males are NOT females. Even if we are seduced, we still look at it as a conquest. Teenage boys want to have sex with anything they can tolerate. Come on people, be real! The actual odds of seduction against a teenage boy’s will are one in a million!

WHAT?! Nothing you wrote makes any sense!! Please take a course in grammar before you respond again…

I am proud of this man for standing tall and proud. You are teaching your children well. God Bless you all.
*This is sic. As are all molesters. I believe our society is truly spinning out of control. Every nightly news program includes yet another story of child molestation, rape, child porn, and related murders. I fear what lies ahead for our children and our grandchildren.

I think the husband/father is holding it together rather well under the situation. I hope that he and his family are enrolled in therapy because they are going to need it.

i would hope that you and your wife are separated, if this was my wife i would of left her immediately. I would also hope that she would only have visitations allowed with the kids, after her release. she is a sick lady with issues that need to be taken care of.

These worlds are far apart but also on the other hand, isn’t used this way.

I’ve been searching on the internet looking to get some ideas on how to get our blog site coded, your overall style and style are fantastic. Did you actually code it yourself or did you hire a coder to get it done on your behalf?
