Twins Separated at Birth Ended Up Marrying Each Other!

Lord Alton of Liverpool spoke of an example of why UK laws covering human fertility and adoption should be changed. Here's the strange case of a twin, separated at birth, who ended up marrying each other:

"They were never told that they were twins," he said during the Dec. 10 debate on a law covering human fertility and embryology. They had been adopted by separate families and "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."

Well, if we were to ignore the lack of evidence here, that would seem like an odd story.
But this really is a short article and doesn't have anything to support itself.

I have read interesting comments on this story, several of which indicate how people often marry someone who looks like them. I thought that was quite amusing as I have had people ask me if my brother-in-law (hubby's little brother) was my biological brother because we look similar. Just to relieve any concerns, I know we are not blood-related, lol.

At least we can thank the fact that they didn't have kids...because that would have been awkward. Very, very awkward to explain to their friends.
