A couple who are very much in love getting married is far from newsworthy, unless the couple is famous or otherwise interesting. In the case of Abby and Brittany Hensel’s recent nuptials, it’s a mix of both. Abby and Brittany are conjoined twins who starred in their own TLC reality show, Abby & Brittany, back in 2012, and they recently announced that they tied the knot with veteran Josh Bowling back in 2021.

Technically, Abby is the one who married Josh, although Brittany is inevitably in all of the couple’s happy snaps — it’s unclear at this time how the relationship works or whether Brittany is looking for her own partner, and ultimately, it’s not really our business, but when has that ever stopped the internet before?

The twins’ TikTok comments are full of people asking how the marriage works exactly — whether Brittany is involved, whether Abby and Josh want kids and what Brittany’s relationship with those kids will be (mother? aunt?) as well as other practical concerns. One Twitter user asked, “If they divorce does he have to pay double alimony?” (Spoiler: No, because legally he’s only married to Abby.) And, of course, others speculated openly about the couple’s sex life.

Abby and Brittany first found fame on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 1996 before getting their own reality show on TLC in 2012. Their show only lasted for eight episodes, and soon after it concluded, Abby and Brittany began working as elementary school teachers in their home state of Minnesota, where they now live with Josh.

All conjoined twins are different, and in Abby and Brittany’s case, they each have their own head, heart and spine, and each sister controls one arm and one leg each — a vestigial third arm was surgically removed when they were younger. The twins’ parents were given the option to separate them at birth, but they decided against it after being informed that it was unlikely both girls would survive the procedure.

Both Abby and Brittany expressed interest in having children in a documentary that was produced when they were teenagers, with their mom Patty explaining, “That is probably something that could work because those organs do work for them.” Abby added, “Yeah, we are going to be moms one day, but we don’t want to talk about how it’s going to work yet.”
