|The twins couples|
(Scroll down for video) In the late 1990s, two identical twin brothers met two identical twin sisters.
The two couples basically did all the major steps in life together, they said in an interview on a U.S. television talk show recently.
When twin sisters Darlene and Diane Nettemeier, went to a twins festival in Twinsburg, Ohio, one man stood on his own amongst the sea of twins.
Tall, dark and handsome, Mark Sanders got their attention, but he was only one and they were two. Luckily for them, Sanders also had an identical twin, Craig. So he called his brother down from their hotel room to meet the pair of blondes.
Soon after, the twin pairs fell in love, got married and then went on to produce another pair of identical twins.
Now, the Sanders families, Craig and Diane, and Mark and Darlene, live in houses next door to one other in Texas. They also have five children between them.
Today, they appeared on a U.S. television talk show to discuss their unusual family set-up. Craig, 44, said that he felt an instant attraction to just one of the twin blondes, Darlene, despite them looking the same.
The two couples became engaged on the same day and decided to share a wedding. "We had a double wedding, and Darlene and I decided we wanted to wear the same dress. Our father took us both down the aisle at the same time," Diane said.
The families built their homes in neighboring plots and removed the fence between the two to create a huge garden that they could all share.
