The lives of conjoined twins has got to be one of triumphs and struggles, but one getting engaged seems to be a mixture of both. Brittany Hensel, of the conjoined Hensel Twins is now engaged. Only her. Not her sister, Abigail, though. But yeah. I’m happy for Brittany because girl live your life. The Hensel Twins have driver’s licenses (each girl has her own) and they went to college and live life as normal as possible so I say a major kudos to them and their support system. But when one of them gets engaged, it does open the floor for some questions in folks’ minds.
Because the Hensels share one body, it complicates the matter. They have 2 heads, 2 separate spinal cords and 2 arms. But everything below their belly button is shared, which includes their Love Pocket, of course. There’s only one between both of them.
So. I’m curious and I have questions. For many reasons. And I’m not trying to be mean. I REALLY have logistical questions. And I feel like Jesus knows my heart but might be giving me a holy side-eye to SADDOWN so I’ma behave. But I got some of my Twitter folks to ask the questions brewing in my head. And I hope to help them out with answers.
Here are some:
@BrokeyMcPoverty: “What book is the other twin gonna pretend to read during the honeymoon?”
Hopefully not 50 Shades of Grey.
@BigDEELight: “What is the other twin feeling? Will she have on a bridesmaid gown while the other has a bridal gown? Who loses their virginity?”
Well, I’d guess she might could possibly be slightly jealous. What makes her twin stand out instead of her? As far as the gown for the wedding day, maybe they’ll both just wear white. To keep things simpler.
@RaeRenee731: “Will the other twin have to close her eyes? does the other twin keep her clothes on?”
I am stumped. I wish we could call Miss Cleo.
@Chamone_baby: ”Does the twin not getting it in still feel it?
Well, since they share one Love Pocket, I’d say yes. *whispers* What if the other twin is loud? What if the fiance is bad? Breakfast gon be awkward. He gon be all “So about last night, ladies. I usually last way longer.” Engaged twin: “You were great, baby!” Non-engaged twin: “Yeah ok. O____o
@Bowdownto_bri: ”Hollup… if they got pregnant whose baby would it be ?”
Both of them. They have one uterus so they’d both be carrying the baby. No need for Maury’s services.
@MissZindzi: ”how do you reject the other one when she’s there all the time??”
Right. Like how did that proposal go down? Was he like “Hey YOU. I love YOU. Not you though. You just cool. But YOU. Marry me.” I got queries.
@Emti - ”Do both women have to consent to secks? ”
Good question. Since their Love Pocket is shared property, I’d say so. But what if the other twin doesn’t wanna bone the other one’s husband that night? What happens then? What if they got different libidos? The questions are endless.
@Hrsparks - ”What if one wants babies and the other doesn’t? Her titty is going to become engorged anyway. That sucks.”
Oooo lawd. This would be a debate for the ages. The spirit of compromise would need to win over.
@Danagleeson - ”Wonder how things work if the single twin wants to “date.” Is the married twin cheating?”
I’ont e’em be knowing.
With that being said, the moral of this story is that there’s hope and love out there for everyone. Love is a beautiful thing.
Update: According to their new show on TLC, neither of the Hensel Twins is actually engaged. Now I’m all disappointed.
