Twin brothers have surgery - so their wives can tell them apart!

Twin brothers have surgery - so their wives can tell them apart!

We're not even joking!!! 

The brothers married identical twin sisters and in order to tell them apart they have resorted to cosmetic surgery.

They made this decision after it was reported that one of the twins was seen holding hands with his sister-in-law.


Pic shows: The two identical couples.nnA pair of identical twin brothers in China who married identical twin sisters are to have minor cosmetic surgery in order to help with their awkward identification problems.nnThe decision comes after friends and family had constantly complained about not being able to tell them apart before, during, and after their wedding.nnBut the issue reached a worrying point when one brother found himself holding the hand of his sister-in-law one night after dinner.nnZhao Xin and younger brother Zhao Xun, from a village in Yuncheng City, in North China¿s Shanxi Province, had been causing headaches for their relatives ever since they started dating sisters Yun Fei and Yun Yang, from a village 10 kilometres (6 miles) away.nnEven on their wedding day during the past Chinese New Year, the couples and their parents had to double-check several times to ensure they were not marrying the wrong partner.nnThe two pairs of identical siblings, aged 22, are said to be so alike that it is not even possible to tell them apart by their voices.nnWhile plastic surgery is still largely taboo in conservative Chinese societies, the couples and their relatives believe a minor adjustment would do them a world of good.nnThey are especially keen to avoid awkward situations similar to that which occurred earlier this year, when one newlywed husband apparently ended up holding the hand of his brother¿s wife during an evening stroll after dinner.nnReports said a hospital in China¿s eastern city of Shanghai has agreed to take on the couple¿s case, and will make small adjustments to their appearance so they can distinguish each other more easily.nn(ends)n

It was that bad, on their wedding day the couples parents had a hard time telling them apart. They had to double check just take make sure they were marrying the right person.

Hopefully this brings an end to any further confusion.
