Nothing Says Lovin’ Like Kissin’ Your Cousin or, in this Case, Marryin’ Your Sister.

The Guardian reports on the case of a pair of twins who had been separated at birth and adopted by different families. The twins later met and fell in love with each other and got married. After discovering they were brother and sister, they had their marriage dissolved by the high court.

This reminds me of a case I heard about somewhere about long-lost siblings falling in love and getting married. It apparently happens a lot, even in cases in which the siblings know they are related. 

Talk about absence making the heart grow fonder.

  1. At least they didn’t have children! I suppose they both will need lots of down time and possible therapy to get over the trauma of it all.

    However, I am glad that this story is being publicized because it points to the importance and fundamental right that adopted children should have in knowing about their biological parents and siblings.
