How to connect Bones correctly?

The point is that I want to connect the lower 2 bone strands of this skirt next to each other in order to prevent it from being pushed to the side by Dynamci Bones collider later. The only problem here is that the new horizontal connection of the bones breaks the vertical connection, as you can see on the screenshot!
What can I do to connect the bones horizontally next to each other with keep offset as it is already on the picture but so that the vertical connection does not dissolve?
