Forty-two of the 827 seniors preparing to graduate next week are twins or triplets, and that makes the Class of 2012 a possible Guinness world record holder for the most multiple-birth students in a graduating class.
Martin's 18 sets of twins and two sets of triplets top the current record holders, a 2011 class in Iowa with 14 sets of twins and three sets of triplets.

Whew! I thought this was going to be a thread about teen pregnancy.
I always wanted a twin...
So did I, but much nicer than me, so that I could be the evil twin. Haha, hahaha, hahahahahaha!
I too have a twin sister, and we were among 2 sets of twins in our graduating class in another state. It was a novelty back then a couple of yrs ago. Or so... ;)
My son, who is a twin, just laughed at you.
Your sons may grow into similar roles as time marches on. Perhaps twin brothers have a more competitive dynamic which may complicate their relationship.
I’m in DWG...and probably not too far from your humble abode.
I used to think I did too, until the day I ran into my identical double on the street. We both did a double-take, and headed in opposite directions. Freakiest thing I've ever experienced.
Explains much about my life.
My youngest brother graduated from Martin. Out of four kids, same house, we graduated from 3 different high schools as Arlington grew and grew. Sister and I from Arlington High, next brother from Bowie which was changed later to a jr. high and then youngest from Martin. My Dad still lives in the same house.
I too wanted twins when I was expecting, then decided that twins were abundant . . . and I wanted TRIPLETS. Alas, the good Lord decided I could only handle one baby at a time and gave me two singles, girl then boy. LOL And now with 18 yr. old girl heading off to college in August and 15 yr boy that just received his Learner’s Permit this week . . . I am glad I didn’t have those triplets I wished for both times.
No doubt. I have an office in the great DWG! Love the community and LEO are the best in DFW.
"..it's in da water I tells ya"
My mother was a faternal twin. She also had twin brothers who were identical. They lived in a very small town in Eastern New Mexico. The identical boys graduated with a set of identical twin sisters, both sets of twins having the non common name of Dutton, and they were not related.
Lo, Thigh Harmonics!
Wonder what was going on 18 years ago in that neck of the woods?
What beautiful girls!
And we know you'll take responsibility for all of them, unlike certain others
