A couple has said they are aware that they are biologically related but insist they will continue their marriage.
28-year-old Paulin and his sister, Dorica were separated from their parents by war when they were kids in Bunia, DR Congo. Two of them escaped to Miti, also in DR Congo without their parents or relatives.
No relative in sight
When peace returned to their community, Paulin went back in search of their parents and he could find no relative at all.

According to the video shared on YouTube by Afrimax English, it is not known if the parents perished in the war or were also displaced to a distant land.
After his fruitless search for his parents, Paulin decided to go back to Miti and meet his sister.
Paulin and Dorica are heartbroken
Heartbroken by his inability to find their relatives after the war, Paulin was said to have suggested a marriage between him and his sister.
His reason for the strange relationship was that it would help them to preserve their family lineage since they were probably the only ones alive.
After many days of thinking about the proposal, his sister, Dorica agreed to it and they got married. They have been living together since then and have birthed four children from the relationship.
