Amy and Becky were adopted at the age of two months and grew up in New Jersey. According to their adoptive mother, even as infants they displayed a strong need to stay together. They would climb into each other’s crib at night, and would even share a pacifier. What’s remarkable is that they were born on top of one another with simultaneous heartbeats, so that their mother was not aware she was giving birth to twins.
When they started going to school, their mother would dress them in identical outfits. They continued to do so in high school, but at a point they were forced to stop as they were being harassed for it.
They went to the same college – Rutgers University in 1986, where they studied the same course. In college, they went back to dressing identically, as they felt more natural looking alike. The only twist they made was to wear the same outfits in slightly different colors. They say they prefer to do this as they are exactly the same size and can swap clothes. According to them it’s like they are getting two outfits each.
In college they shared the same dorm room and had the same set of friends. They graduated in 1990 with the same marketing degree.
They met their ex-boyfriend Chris at a party. Just like in everything else they shared him too. Chris didn’t mind taking them out together, and in fact they both had sex with him. It was as if the twins knew instinctively which one was in the mood on any given occasion, and the other wouldn’t mind.They never felt jealous as Chris would never choose between them.
They haven’t however gone out on a date with anyone for the last 10 years as the feel quite content being by themselves, and have decided not to get married and have children.

As they share the same office and sit facing each other, and share the same bedroom, they are together 24×7.
They feel they are married to each other and there is no need for any other relationship.
There was a time when Amy weighed a couple of pounds more than Becky. People would say she was the larger twin and they hated that. So the twins decided to go on a diet and have weighed exactly the same for 19 years now. For 19 years they have been weighing and measuring every bite of food and drink they eat and drink to maintain identical weights.
