These twins want to marry the same man in a country where gay marriage is still illegal
The twins say they do everything together – including their boyfriend.
Australian twin sisters Anna and Lucy DeCinque do everything together.
They shower together, dress identically and even eat equal amounts of food.
However, the girls took their obsession with being exactly the same a step further when they entered into a relationship with the same man.
The trio met on Facebook in 2014 and although boyfriend Ben struggled with his new unorthodox relationship to begin with, he’s grown used to bringing both women exactly the same amount of satisfaction.
“Whatever I do for one I have to do for the other, so it’s a fine balance. My mates reckon it’s a cool problem to have,” Ben revealed.
“Ben treats us completely equally. If he kisses Anna, he kisses me right after, and holds both our hands when we’re out,” Lucy told The Sun this weekend.
“We never feel jealous because we know he loves us the same. We all sleep together, but it’s not like a threesome as we don’t get involved with each other. Some people say it’s disgusting, but it works for us.”
And now the girls want to mark their love for Ben by marrying him – at exactly the same time.
“We’d love to marry Ben, but as it’s not legal, one day we’ll have a commitment ceremony instead.”
They also want his children.

“Of course, because they’d share a dad, it means our children would be half-siblings as well as cousins – which we know we’ll be criticised for – but no one should judge what a ‘normal’ family is these days.”
Currently, being married to more than one person at one time is only recognised in England and Wales if the marriage took place in a country which allows marriages of this kind and both were legally free to marry in this way.
However, Australian laws are much tougher – on both polyamory and same-sex marriage.
The country’s right-wing PM Malcolm Turnbull has repeatedly blocked free Parliamentary votes on equal marriage, instead making plans to take the issue to the public in a plebiscite (public vote) to avoid a rift with his own conservative anti-LGBT MPs.
Having already agreed to stall the issue until after this month’s federal election, Turnbull – who pulled off a narrow victory in the election but holds a wafer-thin majority- promised this week to bring forward the plebiscite plan as soon as possible, to be held either this year or early next year.
