Twins Separated at Birth Wed & Divorce

From an article on MSNBC:

LONDON - Twins who were separated at birth got married without realizing they were brother and sister, a lawmaker said, urging more information be provided on birth certificates for adopted children.

A court annulled the British couple's union after they discovered their true relationship, Lord David Alton said.

[...]

"It involved the normal birth of twins who were separated at birth and adopted by separate parents.

"They were never told that they were twins," Alton said. "They 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."

How tragic! How do you even begin to deal with all the different feelings & emotions that would arise with such a revelation?

According to the sage words of one of my highschool buddies (who happened to have a very attractive sister), "why go down the street when you can go down the hall?"
