10 Oddest Brother And Sister Stories4:35 PM
The co-workers who found out they're actually long lost brothersTheir customers always told Randy Joubert and Gary Nisbet, co-workers at a furniture store in Waldoboro, Maine, that they look similar enough to be brothers. They always laughed it off, but when Joubert looked for his birth parents, he found out that he's been working side by side with his long lost brother. Prefacing his line of questioning with the statement, “Don't think I'm weird,” Joubert asked his co-worker a few pointed questions based on names and dates gleaned from his own adoption records. Seconds later, Joubert realized that the man who had been on the other end of countless couches, mattresses and recliners for 2 months wasn't just a co-worker. Nisbet was the long-lost brother for whom he had been searching. It's a story that seems too perfect even for a movie: Two brothers, born a year apart, grow up in adoptive families in neighboring towns and attending rival schools. As adults, each lives in Waldoboro but spends 35 years not knowing about the other's existence. Then they end up not only working for the same small business, in this case Dow Furniture in Waldoboro, but also riding together in the same delivery truck day after day. A few days later a teary-eyed woman from nearby Warren showed up at the furniture gallery claiming to be their half-sister — and she had the birth certificate and other paperwork to prove it. Joanne Campbell was born to the same mother five and six years before the two men.

The Mormon sisters who married the same husbandRelationship between sisters can be hard, but two sisters in Utah are somehow capable of sharing a husband. Katie and Priscilla Churcher share a husband, Travis, and they say it's great for their personal lives. After all, they only have to spend half as much time as normal doting on their husband, which gives them more time to hang out with friends, and there's always a babysitter when they go on a date. All three of them were raised in Fundamentalist Mormon families (Fundamentalists are an offshoot of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who practice polygamy), so when Katie and Travis were married, they discussed the possibility of having plural wives in the family. After a few years, Travis began wooing Priscilla, and she slowly fell in love with him. Since polygamy is illegal, they were married in an unofficial church ceremony, and they now live together in a house, with each of the wives having their own rooms that Travis alternates between. Although they admit it can be challenging, everybody loves the family dynamic, and they hope that someday laws will change so they can openly practice their religious beliefs.
The Kung Fu sisters who staged a combat tournament to find a dateMartial arts experts Xiao Lin, 22, and little sister Yin, 21, are to stage a three day fighting festival in Foushan, south east China, where only the toughest suitors stand a chance of getting through. First contestants must show off their archery skills, then they must carry a heavy weight over sharpened bamboo spears, and finally they have to defeat one of the sisters in full contact combat. Only then will contestants earn the right to remove the girls' masks and propose to them. The two sisters were sick and tired of all the weak, "girly men" lining the streets of China. They've tried looking everywhere, but to no avail. “We tried dating agencies but the men we met were all too weak,” Yin said. “We could beat them easily.” 'So we went back to ancient ways called Bi Wu Zhao Qin - which was the way warrior princesses would find their men.' But so far, only a trickle of brave contestants has come forward.'I'm a very good martial artist - but I think I'd want to see them with the masks off before I decided whether I wanted to fight for them,' said one doubtful suitor.
