This identical twin brother who married identical twin sisters are said to be among only 250 twin couples in the world.
Twin identical brothers Doug and Phil Malm, married identical twin sisters Jill and Jena Lassen in a joint ceremony.
Phil is 5 minutes older than Doug, while Jena is 4 minutes older than Jill.
Their love story started in 1991 when they first met at the Twin Days Festival – the largest annual gathering of twins in the world – in Twinsburg, Ohio. Doug paired up with Jill while Phil went with Jena.
The annual Twin Days Festival is obviously a big thing for them.
At first the twins had a long distance courtship. Their bond became stronger when Dough bought a lottery ticket from a local store in Idaho and luckily won a cruise to the Caribbean. Both the identical twin brothers decided to invite their lady love to go with them on the cruise.
A lucky Caribbean cruise was the turning point in their relationship.
When everything went well Dough and Phil decided to propose them in 1992. They chose the Twin Days Festival to propose Jill and Jena that year. In 1993, on the occasion of the Twin Days Festival they tied the knot.
They wore identical tuxedos and wedding dress.
After getting married the identical twin couples stayed together in the same four-bedroom house in Moscow,Idaho.
Dough and Phil had lived together all their lives so they love to stay like that way. Even Jena and Jill don’t like to stay apart.
Interestingly, each couple has only one child.
Several years after their married life Dough and Jill had a daughter whom they named Rylie, 19, and Phil and Jena had a son named Tim, 18.
Their kids are cousins, but they might as well be siblings.
The twin couple had a very happy relationship and they spent time doing lots of things together from dining out, getting haircuts, and other activities. Phil and Dough both work as cleaners and after-school supervisors.
They’ve been married for 24 years and counting.
They have admitted that sometimes even they get confused and Doug even recalls one awkward incident when he hugged Jena thinking she was Jill.
They look like they’re having the time of their lives.
So that they got confused they call out their spouse to make sure they are talking to the right person. The twin couples are pretty much happy with each other.
