Are we fucked for the rest of our lives?

We just had twins. How soon can we expect one parent to be able to look after the two of them for a couple of hours without any help?

They're 7 weeks old, and at this point we basically need three adults around, one for each baby and one to go grocery shopping or whatever else has to be done. But at some point my mother-in-law is gonna want to leave and I'm gonna have to start doing more outside the house, so we're wondering at what point it will be possible for my wife, say, to look after the two of them for 4-5 hours alone. Also any other advice that's even vaguely related to the subject of twin babies is welcome -- we are in a world of trouble here.
