Dating identical twins, can one love them each identically?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (21623 points ) 1 month ago

Some time back I read an article on conjoined twins (back before they found ways to separate them), and it spoke of how at least one found a wife. I wondered how that worked because the other twin had to go on all of the dates because he was attached literally to his brother. Some guys I knew was saying it would be better to date identical twins because you can have a de facto threesome with the same gal. Logically I can somewhat follow that, but in actual practice I guess I can’t. Even though they are identical twins and would have much in common physically and personality wise, they would not be the same to the smallest iota. That being said, is there any way a guy, or gal, dating identical twins can love both absolutely the same, if they can’t how would that affect the threesome?

I dated an identical twin for awhile. She and her sister felt independent from each other yet often found themselves doing the same things while apart. They would be apart all day, and each get an urge for a particular restaurant or to get a drink somewhere, and would walk in and find the other one there.

And, their cousin told me one of them liked me, so I asked her out. The problem was I asked out B, yet it was actually A that had talked to the cousin. And I did like B more, she had a stronger personality and was different from her sister in her thinking.

So no, you cannot love them identically, they are distinct people.

There is a world of difference between identical twins and con joined identical twins?

No.

I would think the spouse of a conjoined twin would have to be a very stable, special person.
I too have heard of conjoineds being married, and having kids. It made me wonder, if only one got married, would that spouse throw out a pity shot sometimes?
Would there be any playful challenges between TWO spouses? “Ha! Got mine there first!”
When I think of such things, I try to find something else to think.

I am not sure of the rarity of having identical twins that are also joined together somehow, but the difference would be that simple identical twins don’t have to go everywhere together unless they choose to.

You mean that the married siblings’ mate would give the unmarried sibling a ”mercy boink”? I can see that would take a temperament like steel and ice water to be in a relationship like that. When you want to ”make the baby” how do you really perform that? You can’t change positions unless you involve the joined sibling. What if it is your brother and he gets bored and horny and starts “handling himself”, while you are boinking away like bunnies with your wife? What if he does the unimagined and starts getting grabby with your wife? Showering with your spouse would be out of the question, and you could never have a private conversation.

@Hypocrisy_Central The question mark at the end of my comment was unintended, strange things happen with voice recognition. It was a statement, not a question.

These dudes got married.

^ Well, I guess that illustrates part of the problem I spoke of with squabbling wives; in the end each wife only had their husband part of the time. If one doesn’t take care of himself, he can take down the other twin. Pity is, had they been born in modern days they might have been able to be separated quite easy.
