Montana Teacher: My Life, My Love

Part 4

Brett and Bart Collins are the identical twin sons of Sarah Collins Evans a teacher in the Mountain View Montana School District. Their father was killed in a tornado in Battleground, Indiana. Their mother married Tal Evans, the father of Mattie and Elizabeth Evans, also identical twins. Tal’s first wife had died giving birth to the twins.

The two sets of twins were seven when their parents met and married. They met in Sarah’s first grade class. From the beginning, Mattie proclaimed she was going to marry Brett. It was okay, she said, because he wasn’t her ‘for real brother’.

Will society accept a marriage between step-brother and step-sister? Will her parents?
