Last week, we started a very interesting thread in the Inroductions section regarding how often we should expect to see MS occur in BOTH a husband and a wife (or significant other). VladFT did an excellent
analysis of the statistics and came up with the expected number of such situations in the USA.
"The total number of marriages with both partners having MS MUST be less then 114"
The entire thread, and his very well presented mathematic reasoning is here:

Now then, if the true number of such marriages is more than approximately 114, then it implies a VERY important idea-- that MS might just have a communicable component. Now we are of course not attempting to conduct Journal of Neurology-esque research here, but it would be extremely interesting to get an idea of just how prevalent this is.
