US couple struggling to conceive discover they're twins!

IVF The shocking revelation was made after a DNA test

Nevertheless further research may have led to the since 'viral story' being another instance of fake news and news media ongoing failure to check verifiable sources along with the temptation to fabricate facts for hits for the sake of advertising revenue.

An unidentified MS couple who had been struggling to conceive naturally visited an in vitro fertilization clinic to explore their options, but doctors there made a startling discovery.

The spouses were interested in learning more about the in vitro fertilization process and thus underwent routine DNA tests to get their genetic backgrounds. "However, looking closer at samples, I noticed there were way too many similarities", said the doctor, who was not named by the daily.

At one point the wife had implored the physician to 'stop joking'. They were adopted into different families, with neither foster family not knowing their adopted child had a twin'.

Thursday's news left the couple at a loss with what to do, as marriage between siblings is outlawed in the southern state.

The married pair, who can not be named to due to patient confidentiality restrictions, had been struggling to conceive and came to the clinic to take part in the IVF program.

After observing this, the doctor then noted that the husband and wife had the exact same birth dates and knew that they must be fraternal twins.

After processing the facts, it emerged that their biological parents had died in a auto crash when the couple were infants. They met and became a couple in college, and friends had reportedly always remarked on their striking resemblance and on their shared birthday.

"They were attracted to each other due to their similarities".

"I really hope they can work something out".

"If only they had known the truth, it could have saved them so much pain later on".

The paper reported that the penalty for marrying a sibling in MS is up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $500. It's believed that this particular couple will not face any charges due to the unusual circumstance of their relationship.

None of the outlets that republished this story seemed fazed by the fact that the Mississippi Herald report included no verifiable details (such as the name of the doctor or patients involved).

On April 14, the Mississippi Herald ran an outrageous story about a Florida man who was supposedly caught having sexual intercourse with a horse at a Mississippi ranch. A story which also failed to link to other verifiable sources.

Be has contacted the Mississippi Herald for clarification.

In other words, both Mississippi Herald and the Denver Inquirer are fake newspaper sites that have been set up for no other ostensible objective than to spread this fictitious story, which has now been reported as "real" news. "They burst out laughing when I asked them if they were twins".
