When Ellwanda began dating Rani, his identical twin brother Ellwindi wondered if he would find someone just like her. So Ellwanda set him up with Rani’s identical twin sister Rina, and now they all live happily ever after under one roof.

That is all according to Ellwanda and Ellwindi’s father, Nopi Hidayat, who shared the story of his identical twin sons’ marriage to identical twin sisters, which has captivated the nation.

Nopi said Ellwanda, who, like Ellwindi (obviously), is 20, introduced his girlfriend Rani, 19, to the family a while ago and announced that he intended to marry her. Soon after, Ellwindi introduced his girlfriend Rina, also 19 (obviously), to the family and announced that he, too, intended to marry her.

“When I looked at [Rina] I thought she looked like Ellwindi’s twin’s girlfriend,” Nopi said, adding that he initially had concerns that they were going to marry the same girl. 

However, the family then learned that Rina is Rani’s identical twin and that she had been set up to meet Ellwindi by Ellwanda.

The two couples then agreed to get married on the same day, and that day came on Feb. 27.

Not only that, all four now live under the same roof in Sumedang, West Java, which has created some complications.

“Sometimes we get them mixed up. I would speak with Rani and find myself speaking with Rina instead,” Ellwindi said.

Thankfully, that seems to be the extent of their mix-up so far. One can only imagine the confusion in that household if both Rani and Rina give birth to twins.

At any rate, we wish the couples all the happiness in the world. Times two.
