Because they share the same body, it is not possible to separate dicephalic parapagus twins.

The community where these young women live have rallied and supported the whole family since day 1. I admire the entire family.
They're normal people otherwise and very often want to date and marry.

The famous Eng and Chang Bunker both married, Eng had 11 kids and Chang had 10 kids, remaining conjoined.

The Hensel twins are normal girls who both want to date and marry and have children. It's reported that Brittany is in fact engaged to be married. I don't know what that exactly means for her sister.

I am not trying to be rude or trying to be funny, but how does sex work? (not saying that you would know) but wouldnt that be really awkward or strange for the other twin? And even if they were ok and used to it because they know nothing else what about the person the one is having sex with. I think it would be really uncomfortable.

They brought that up in that video toward the end, but like they said then, they're just 16 and don't have to think about how it will be done yet. They both want to be mothers and apparently that will be possible, but like the doctor pointed out, if they both marry one man, or two men, and then what if one wants to divorce and be single.

I think because these people are so normal otherwise, it brings up questions like this. But yes, it's no one's business really, but of course people will be somewhat curious. How can two different people share one body and have a normal life in every way that two different people can want to have.
