The couple could not hide their shock, as marriage between siblings is a criminal act in the southern state. The unnamed couple had met and fallen in love in college. “They were attracted to each other due to their similarities. They felt they could really connect with each other. If only they had known the truth, it could have saved them so much pain later on. For me, it’s a particularly unusual case because my job is all about helping couples conceive a child. This is the first time in my career that I’ve been glad I haven’t succeeded in that regard,” the doctor told Mississippi Herald.
