    I hate that they`re saying their separate races, I really hate that. Simply put they`re the same damn race jus tone`s light skinned and the other is dark skinned. What`s the big deal, me and my sis are twins I`m light and she`s dark. I`m short she`s tall as hell and I`m older. Go figure.

    Jumbo, it`s easy to keep your maiden name when marrying. Heaps of people do it.
    Or, yes, they could be unmarried or De Facto, yes?

    Jumbo, I havent decied to take my husbands last name yet, and we`ve been married for a year. You don`t automatically get the last name, you actually go through a legal name change process--- if you want to.... Not all people do it immediately, and not all people do it ever.

    Anyway, thats kind of cute. I think this is a perfect family to do those studies on to see if there are still prejudices with schooling and working.

    je_scream, said it right!!!!!
    Unfortunately,"light/dark skin" doesn`t get people to watch the news, and the commercials that pay for the programming, or protect them from some idiot who`d scream "Racism" because the "correct" terminology wasn`t used.....
    They have a beautiful family whether they are married or not!!! Best of luck to them!

    I don`t think this is a coincidence, perhaps it`s something to do with the parent`s genes... Seems extremely unlikely to say the least that this would happen by chance.

    I have an instructor that kept her maiden name and she is married. It happens.

    Happening by chance would have explained the first time....I mean, there is a first time for everything.

    Science and biology has a LOT to do with it happening twice which now makes the first time not so coincidental.

    Also, they both have half of their mother`s genes and half of their father`s genes which makes them both half Caucasian and half African American even though one looks full white and the other full black. It is science people.

    I just think it is amazing how this happened twice. The chances of having two sets of twins in a row (I`m assuming no fertility drugs) 1 out of 3000 births. Mindboggling

    Jumbo Cookie = DUMB.

    Marriage and name change are two separate processes. And changing your name isn`t the easiest thing to do either. In most states you have to go to the courts, fill out the paperwork, pay for the court costs, have the judge sign off on it, take it to be published in the paper, then return it to the court record keeper all within a certain period of time, with deadlines to each step, and if you miss a step the process has to be started from the beginning. And that doesn`t even cover all the work that you have to do once it`s legalized. You have to notify EVERYONE from the Social Security Admin to The DMV. I changed my name last February and I still have a crap load of people to inform.

    Now let`s see what would happen if they divorce.

    The dad gets custody of the black kids and the mother the white kids... that would be fair.

    WHAT THE F*CK!?

    I thought it was awesome the FIRST time!

    I guess it has to happen eventually... two sets of twins born with interracial parents where the twins look very different.

    PS, the first ones are older now and SO cute!

    the father looks half and half so that could also have something to do with them being light since hes light too.
