Twins Accidentally Get Married. Hilarity Ensues

I don’t even know where to start with this one. A pair of twins who were adopted at birth by different families found out they were related…after they were already married. The brother and sister reportedly felt an “inevitable attraction” to each other because, I guess, they each thought the other one was really hot. According to the BBC:

A court annulled the British couple’s union after they discovered their true relationship, Lord Alton said.

“They were never told that they were twins,” he told the Lords.

“They met later in life and felt an inevitable attraction, and the judge had to deal with the consequences of the marriage that they entered into and all the issues of their separation.”

“And if you don’t know you are biologically related to someone, you may become attracted to them and tragedies like this may occur.”

Awwwkwaaard. How do you deal with the news that you’ve been boning your sister? Do you break up forever and never see the twin you never knew you had again? Do you break off the wedding, but still get coffee to catch up? Or do you just say fuck it and keep the incest train rolling? I think we know the last one is the only real option.

    holy crap, if you follow one of the links from that story there is a similar story about a German couple who didn’t know they were brother and sister and got married then found out. And they don’t want to separate!


  4. This may somewhat explain why Prince Charles looks like Jar Jar Binks with Downs. England’s like The Island of Dr. Moreau…where siblings are forced to reproduce to create a super-race.

    Actually, the Island of Dr. Moreau wasn’t about breeding – it was vivisection; the practice of taking living beings apart. In the book, Dr. Moreau was surgically reconstructing animals into humanoid forms.

    Who cares about the Brits. Lets talk about the two West Virginians pictured. You think the good-looking mocked on the ugly one growing up?

    brothersisterlove, you are incorrect. They knew they were related when they got married.

    “He met his sister Susan for the first time, and according to the couple, after their mother died, they fell in love.”

    They both didn’t know about each other, but after they met is when they fell in love and married.

    Great story – unfortunately not true. Have a read of the article at http://lifeandhealth.guardian.co.uk/family/story/0,,2240924,00.html and you’ll find the real story is about Lord Alton lying to support his anti-abortion stance, and then getting caught out.
