Say I marry a woman who has a twin sister. she,and I have a son together, and she dies of child birth. five months later I marry her sister. she becomes pregnant, and gives birth to a male child. now, for my question what are the odds of the two children looking like identical twins?

such a confusing question....

but i think it will look quite alike but although they are twins but when different sex genes meets,independent assortment and cross link will shift their feature...

What kind of sick person would marry his sister-in-law 5 months after his wife died? Even if the women had been identical twins, the kids wouldn't look like identical twins because of the different sperm cells from the father (you). Good luck with your creepy experiments.

Well it being the twin sister and you have the same DNA (hopfuly) could be a about 15% becaucse genes are the same

Not much, cause they'll be 14 months apart, at least.

Plus, if you have two sons with the same girl, they usually don't look identical...

relax, it's just a hypothetical question; besides,one cannot grieve forever, and since she's her twin you'll be attracted to her on some level.

Can you make that more specific? Identical twins or fraternal twins?

If fraternal, the chance of your children looking like identical twins is slim to none.
Fraternal twins have very little chance of having the same chromosomes profile so I doubt even the children would look alike.

If identical, the chance wouldn`t be big because of the age gap so the older would appear taller or have sharper features than the younger one.

they would be identical twins; also, after both kids turned 21 is the best time to compare differences

^ Oh I see.
The chance would still be slim because as they get older, they would often become less alike.

Wait I`m a bit confused...
The children of identical twins would be half-siblings instead of cousins...
Since they have the same father but from a different mother, that would make them full-siblings?
