    For some reason, the Mississippi Herald won't let me copy/paste the article here, but I sourced it at the bottom.

    In this particular case, this was a gov't error by not telling the foster parents that each child had a twin.

    I foresee this happening A LOT in the future due to anonymous sperm donations/ human error/in vitro.

    Married Couple Told They Are Fraternal Twins
    Shortly after consulting with a husband and wife about conceiving a child, specialists at a fertility clinic in Jackson, Miss. discovered that the link between the married couple actually ran much deeper than anyone thought: the two were actually fraternal twins.

    The couple had reportedly been struggling to conceive and so visited a fertility clinic to address the problem, only to find another.

    "During the in vitro fertilization process, we take a DNA sample from both the male and female to get a profile of their genetic backgrounds," said the presiding doctor, according to the Mississippi Herald.


    "It's just a routine thing, and we wouldn't normally check to see if there was a relationship between the two samples, but in this case the lab assistant involved was shocked by the similarity of each profile."
    After analyzing the results of genetic tests, the consulting physician was not quick to jump to the extreme conclusion that the couple were twins, or even siblings.

    "My first reaction was that they must have been less-closely related; perhaps they were first cousins, which does happen sometimes," continued the doctor.


    "However, looking closer at the samples, I noticed there were way too many similarities. With this in mind, I was convinced that both patients were fraternal twins."

    The doctor eventually made the decision to inform the couple of what the genetic tests showed.


    "It was a difficult subject to raise, but I had to discuss it with them," said the doctor.

    "They burst out laughing when I asked them if they knew they were twins. The husband said that a lot of people remarked on the fact that they shared the same birthdays, and looked similar to each other, but he said it was just a funny coincidence and that the couple were definitely not related."

    Using the information they had, specialists at the fertility clinic were able to draw conclusions about exactly how the twins happened into a romantic relationship, unbeknownst to both of them.

    "From what we were able to piece together, the biological parents of the couple had died in a car crash when the couple were infants, and they had no close family willing to adopt them," explained the doctor who met with the couple.
    "They'd been taken into state care, and were adopted out to separate families. Due to a filing error, neither foster family had ever been told that their adopted child had a twin."
    On a more personal level, the two people were drawn together for the very reasons that may have precluded them from marrying each other.
    "They were attracted to each other due to their similarities," explained the doctor.
    "The fact that 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. If only they had known the truth, it could have saved them so much pain later on."
    Though the couple reportedly had the same parents, there is a possibility that fraternal twins can have different fathers, according to Health Research Funding.
    Moreover, fertility treatments are associated with a significant number of fraternal twin births.

    It's not possible to deduce from their DNA alone if two people are a non-identical twin. Either the media is making this story up or the doctor is a fraud. An identical twin necessarily has 100% of its DNA in common, a non-identical ("fraternal") twin only 25%.

    I'll be damned, you're right. :agree:
    I got the story off The Drudge.
    JFC we have to double check every freaking news story now?

    Viral story about 'married couple who found out they were twins through IVF' appears to be fake

    Evidence suggests the 'Mississippi Herald' is not a legitimate news outlet

    A viral story about a couple who apparently found out they were twins through IVF appears to be fake.
    The article was published by the 'Mississippi Herald' on Thursday and was soon picked up by news outlets around the world, including mirror.co.uk

    Accidental incest is an old literary theme, effective because it was so horrible and never ended well. Now the jews are promoting it. But unlike the jewish praising of incest and claiming it happens all the time, it is rare and most news stories about it are inventions.

    From a 2008 jewstream article, for instance:

    So you're sitting in the pub and your nice-but-naive friend says: "Hey, I heard the most amazing story the other day. There were these twins, right, a boy and a girl, who were separated at birth and adopted by different families. And, like, years later, by an amazing coincidence, they meet. And fall madly in love, and get married. Straight up! Then, obviously, they find out they're actually brother and sister. And it all has to be annulled, and they're just devastated. It's the ultimate nightmare. Can you imagine?"
    Assuming your brain is still functioning like the well-oiled piece of precision engineering it is, your response would, I trust, be: "That's a wind-up if ever I heard one. Think about it for a minute - you mean these two meet by accident, discover not only that they were both adopted but were born on exactly the same day in exactly the same town, and still never pause to wonder whether they might be related? Pull the other one. What did it say on their birth certificates?"
    Last week it was reported that this unlikely scenario had actually taken place - and news outlets the world over went bananas. Biologists and psychotherapists came forward to confirm the "genetic inevitability" of the pair's attraction and lamented the "cruelty of fate" and "trauma of forced separation".
    The tabloids screamed: "Are YOU one of the twins - or do you know them? Get in touch NOW on 020 ..."
    Here's the thing: it all came from a single remark more than a month ago by the vehemently anti-abortion Roman Catholic peer and father of four, Lord Alton, in favour of all children having the right to know the identity of their biological parents.
    He had heard about this particular case, he said, from the judge who handled the annulment. Or perhaps (he later admitted) a judge who was "familiar with the case". Britain's top family judge, Sir Mark Potter, has never heard of the story. And, as the excellent Heresy Corner blog notes, the whole thing is statistically improbable, procedurally implausible (for 40 years, adoption practice has been to keep twins together) and based on the equivalent of a friend in the pub saying, "Hey, I heard the most amazing story the other day."
    Still, stranger things have happened.

    Certain groups :wink: routinely wed cousins, siblings and even children. Obviously they want to make this seem less shocking by acting as if its a normal scenario in other populations, which is much easier with control of the media.

    Let's be grownups about this for a minute, though:
    You're an orphan raised by a foster family who likely never really loved you, which I imagine makes you feel quite alienated from the rest of the world. You meet a gorgeous woman who has lots in common with you. The love -and sex- is genuine and after dozens of failed attempts, you finally truly connect with someone. How many of you honestly think you could just walk away from it and laugh about it all in a few weeks? I am NOT saying its right, but I really trying not to judge people for situations I've never had to imagine much less face.

    Honestly, I think teenage siblings fucking each other is probably frighteningly common, and I know plenty of guys who've drunkenly confessed to thinking about their sister while they rub one out. Shit, the only reason I didn't fuck the couple hot cousins who tried to seduce me is because my family would find out. No doubt I would have been deeply ashamed later, but these were pretty young girls I barely knew who didn't look anything like me. I'm still kinda sorry I didn't take the offered blowjob from one who wanted to try out her new tongue ring... especially since my other cousin took her up on the offer and she kept her mouth shut until this day.
