Two Twins Just Married Another Set Of Twins In Twinsburg, Ohio

Twins can be a bit strange. Stranger than most, at least, and I can say that because I am one.

While being able to form a killer strike partnership and win just about any game of charades alongside my brother does have its advantages, I don't really need to spend my entire life with him.

For Brittany and Briana Deane, however, no such problem exists - the identical twin pair just married another set of identical twins in a joint ceremony at the 2018 Twins Days Festival in Twinsburg, Ohio.

Presumably, they followed their wedding by slapping on some Proclaimers records, watching Sister Sister and trying to remember who had actually married who.

The lucky grooms were Josh and Jeremy Slayers - both (obviously) 34 - with Briana taking Jeremy and Brittany taking Josh.

"It's really been a fairy tale come true," said Briana, according to the Mail. "Marrying twins is something that's very important to us."

"Even when we were little girls I can remember being in kindergarten, knowing that that is what we saw for ourselves."

Brittany added: "We knew that the chances were incredibly scarce."

"The stars had to align for our dreams to come true. I get to marry the man of my dreams and at the same time I get to look over next to me and see my twin sister marrying the man of her dreams."

No prizes for guessing where the couples met: at the Twins Festival in Twinsburg, of course.

"I remember vividly the first time Brittany and I saw Josh, and Jeremy at the twins festival," said Briana.

"I also remember the first time we all spoke the last night of the festival. It's sort of like everything was in slow motion."

"A lot of the wedding planning was extremely fun and even peaceful for Brittany and I to do together because we have the same taste," Briana told reporters from PEOPLE magazine.

"We had the same vision of what our double wedding day would look like. We work well together and I would say the hardest part is planning everything across state lines because none of us live in Twinsburg, Ohio."

I mean, wouldn't you just move? The two twins from Twinsburg, Ohio sounds like the plot of a moderately uninspired musical, but one suspects that it would suit Brittany and Briana down to the ground.

Luckily, their grooms seem to have had a similar pact as the brides.

"If they couldn't find identical twin girls that matched up well with them, they were never getting married," said Brittany.

"I think that they experienced a lot of the same challenges dating what we call 'singletons' - that means 'non-twins'. It's hard when you're dating someone and they don't understand the twin bond."

We'll leave you with a final thought from Brittany.

"When we have children, my and Josh's children will be genetic siblings to Briana and Jeremy's children," she say.

"Even though they're cousins, they're technically genetic siblings. We imagine it will be like two moms and two dads all raising our families together."

Try and get your head around that one.
