People Are All Asking The Same Thing After Conjoined Twin Abby Hensel's Marriage Is Revealed

By maks in News On 29th March 2024

The internet has been buzzing with curiosity ever since it was shared that Abby Hensel, one half of the famous conjoined twins, has gotten married.

Abby and Brittany Hensel first captured the public's attention in 1996 when they appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show as adorable six-year-olds.

Since then, they've led a rather public life, including their own reality TV show on TLC, which even followed them on a trip to Europe.

Hailing from Minnesota, the dicephalus conjoined twins, meaning they share organs from the waist down, have successfully pursued degrees in education.


Now, they are employed as elementary school teachers in their home state.

Recently, public records surfaced, revealing that Abby tied the knot with Josh Bowling, a nurse and US Army veteran, back in 2021, as reported by Today.

At the time, wedding photos were shared on social media, showcasing the twins in a beautiful white dress opposite Josh, who wore a light grey suit.


Further investigation into their social media accounts shows more photos that hint they're all happily navigating married life together.

The twins are connected at the torso, with each controlling one side of their shared body.


They do have their differences, though, like Brittany being four inches shorter than Abby, which leads her to spend quite a bit of time on her tiptoes, resulting in a stronger calf muscle.

From a young age, Abby and Brittany learned to work together seamlessly, enabling them to engage in activities like playing sports, typing, and even driving a car.

But Abby's marriage has sparked a whirlwind of questions online, especially around the legalities involved with conjoined twins marrying.

Reddit has been a hotspot for these discussions, with one user pondering, "How does this unfold legally? Since they are two people married to one man, who is on the marriage certificate?"

It's a complex situation that another commenter highlighted by saying, "Ngl, for some reason, I was expecting there to be two guys."

"Having only the one guy makes it more confusing. What if they fight? What if one h/w set wants to divorce and the other doesn't?


"Man, this is interesting," they added.


However, someone tried to provide clarity on the situation, suggesting, "One of the twins will be the legal spouse as far as the state is concerned."

"So it is theoretically possible that the other twin could someday decide to marry a different person."

"But given the way they have had to harmonize their entire lives, I imagine they would find it easier to stick to being married to just one person," essentially summing up what many think might be the arrangement.

While the couple has yet to address these legal intricacies publicly, their history of overcoming obstacles with grace and determination suggests they'll find a way through this too.

After all, they've always been encouraged by their parents to pursue their desires, so navigating this unique aspect of their marriage likely won't be any different
