Are Twins Possible??

Just curious as to what the actual chances are for having twins. My boyfriend is a twin and there are 3 sets of twins in my family. We're curious what our chances would be or if it's something that just happens.

Fraternal twins tend to run in families while identical twins are something that just happens. If twins run in your family or your mom's family, your chances of having twins are slightly increased.

Twins do run on my mom's side of the family. And my boyfriend is a fraternal twin. We were just curious of our chances. Thank you for the info.
