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 couldhave saved them so much pain later on. 

“For me, it’s a particularlyunusual case because my job is allabout 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.

The penalty for marrying a siblingin Mississippi is up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $500.
