But it's time we talked about a major issue here: the parents.

Let's start with why they broke up in the first place.

Then they each took a twin and parted ways, not even telling their kids they had a twin sister.

To be fair, they're identical twins, but still. You created them! Know your kids.

Meanwhile, this probably all could've been avoided with some conversation and couples therapy.

Sure, things worked out in the end, but really, was it worth all they put Annie and Hallie through?
