Married couple discover they are biological twins after DNA test

IVF The shocking revelation was made after a DNA test

The doctor says he continued to insist that the pair were twins and had DNA evidence to back it up, after which the wife "pleaded" with him to admit he was joking. "If they had only known the truth, it could have saved them so much pain later on".

Aside from the apparent "married couple are twins" internet hoax, do you know of any other seemingly plausible news stories that ultimately pulled the proverbial wool over the eyes of legitimate publications? The couple said that they have been told about how similar they are but they think that is just a coincidence.

He then realised the husband and wife must be biological twins, but did not know if they were already aware. However, looking closer at the samples I noticed there were way too many similarities.

He said "From what we were able to piece together, the biological parents of the couple had died in a vehicle crash when the couple were infants, and they had no close family willing to adopt them". They were adopted by two different families, in which none of them knew their adopted child had a twin.

"The husband said that a lot of people remarked on the fact they shared the same birthdays, and looked similar to each other, but he said it was just a amusing coincidence and that the couple were definitely not related".

MS married couple discover they are biological twins: Just a knock off fake news story?

"The fact they'd both been adopted after their parents had died, meant they'd both experienced a similar childhood, and they felt they could really connect with each other", the doctor said.

Speaking to BBC News, British Association for Adoption and Fostering director of child placement Mo O'Reilly said in 2008 that such situations, traumatic as they may be for the people affected, are "incredibly rare". However, after this turn of events, the couple is thinking twice about their future together. Certainly, the idea of having gotten married to their own sibling was something that never crossed their minds. "This is the first time in my career that I've been glad I haven't succeeded in that regard".

Reiterated the physician: 'They were attracted to each other due to their similarities. That is what he refers to as "genetic sexual attraction" because all people tend to prefer other people who have similar preferences or looks. The doctor came to the conclusion that they were biological twins - but the couple were completely unaware of this.
