Is there a cases of conjoined twins married with same conjoined twins?
March 15, 2013 4:48PM
No. The popular gen is it is best that people of this sort remain ( single) or dual-controlled and avoid any Center-Aisle Romantic entanglement. The original Chang and Eng ( l9Th century siamese twins) were married to one woman, normal, and produced normal offspring. Neither the Hilton sisters nor the Boston-area sisters as far as I know ever got married. There may be legal issues here, also. A different type of freak, the Amazon Sandra Allen, was never married. Most people of this type tend to die young, in the case of the overly tall woman, the circulatory system is over-taxed.

Should Conjoined twins live?
Asked in Pregnancy, Biology
Are conjoined twins always identical?
Yes. Conjoined twins form when the fertilized egg starts to split, but does not completely split into two. Improved. There are no known cases of opposite sex Conjoined twins but that does not mean it can not happen. it is generally believed that identical twins means actually identical but the correct term now is actually monzygotic twins meaning one sack the reason they use this term is because to simply put it identical twins is actually rare when twins are born of the same sack Mono they are rarely actually identical and as such it is possible for a monozygotic twins to not completely sperate but in rare cases actual identical twins can in fact be of seperate sexual phenotype's they usually have some other defect
Asked in Genetics
Are conjoined twins always the same sex?
Yes. Conjoined twins are always identical (monozygotic) twins, and identical twins are always the same sex. There is a theoretical case where identical twins could be opposite genders, when the babies are female but in one of the females, a branch of one X chromosome breaks away; however, I don't believe this has ever been observed.

What is the difference between identical twins and conjoined twins?
How do conjoined twins develop?
Conjoined twins result when the zygote of identical twins fails to completely separate. That being said, identical twins occur when a single zygote, that is, a fertilized egg, divides into two separate embryos. The embryos will then, with all conditions met, develop into fetuses sharing the same womb. When the zygote doesn't fully separate, the embryos develop into fetuses without dissolving their connection. Conjoined twins are always identical; fraternal (non-identical) twins are the result of two separate eggs being fertilized by two separate sperm and being so, avoid the incomplete division necessary to form conjoined twins.

Asked in Relationships
How do twins get conjoined?
Conjoined twins are basically two beings made from the one egg or cell, and this egg has not broken apart properly, and so the twins have been fused together. They may share the same organs - like brain, shoulder, heart, leg...etc. Sometimes they are separated in order to be able to live separate lives.

If girl twins married boy twins would their children look the same?
Asked in Biology
What types of twins are most common?
Generally fraternal twins are more common. For fraternal twins to occur twins must diverge, but differentiate upon becoming separate entities. Identical twins are rarer, in which the two siblings are of the same gender and are exactly alike upon birth. Rarer so are conjoined, or "Siamese" twins. This occurs when twins are born partially or extremely fused together. There is only a 25% survival chance for a conjoined twin. Most were only connected by gristle and flesh, and could have been easily separated easily, were they in modern society.
