Have you ever been walking around in the mall and spotted an identical set of twins and thought to yourself, “that’s cool.” Just imagine the reactions when you see two sets of identical twins that are married! Well that’s what it was like for Briana, Brittany, Josh, and Jeremy.
Briana and Brittany married two guys who happen to also be twins. They married Josh and Jeremy Salyers. The two couples got married together in 2018 at the twins days festival. They recently each had baby boys who are genetically more like brothers than cousins. Briana Salyers said to TODAY Parens, “You’ve heard the term Irish twins and you’ve heard identical twins and fraternal twins, But we have quaternary twins.”
Their sons, Jett and Jax, are quaternary twins. According to 7 News quaternary twins are, “the rare phenomenon when identical twin sisters marry identical twin brothers and have babies at the same time.” Jax and Jett are quaternary twins because they are cousins, but genetically more like brothers.
Briana and Brittany were talking about wanting quaternary twins for a little bit and were hoping to have them. They liked the idea of having quaternary twins because it is ultra rare. There are only 300 known quaternary marriages in the history of the world. They were hoping that they would have overlapping pregnancies and they did.
The two couples, Jeremy and Briana, and Josh and Brittany, decided to buy a house together and currently they all live under the same roof. All four of them wanted this and are super happy about everything they have chosen to do. They had opened a wedding venue site and currently run it together. They all love how much time they get to spend with each other.
But while all of it is wonderful, these things don’t happen without some people being hateful. The two families choose to not focus on the hateful comments but choose to look to the future and what really matters to them. They have debated whether or not to try again for other babies but have not yet decided. Briana said, “We will make a decision pretty soon. The babies are still pretty young and we are trying to wait a little longer to see what to do.”
