Police learned about their marriage last month after a child welfare investigation. According to the AP, Patricia told a child services investigator that she’d lost custody of her children and that they were adopted by their grandmother. According to a police affidavit, Patricia reunited with her daughter, 25, and claimed that she thought the marriage was legal because her name isn’t listed on her daughter’s birth certificate.

The 43-year-old woman had previously married her son, whose name is not listed, in 2008. The son filed for an annulment 15 months later, citing incest, the AP reports.

The women — who wore matching Superwoman shirts in their mug shots — are each being held on a $10,000 bond at Stephens County Jail.
