Married Couple Spot Each Other in Childhood Family Photos


On March 4, married couple Mr. Ye and Mrs. Xue were looking at old photographs and made an astonishing discovery. Long before they formally met, they were captured together in the same photograph. They were teenagers at the time, and they certainly didn’t know each other. Little did they know that their paths would cross 11 years later.

Capturing History

The couple had visited Qingdao, China in 2000 on separate trips. Eleven years later, the couple met and got married. While they shared stories about visiting the May Fourth Square, they had no idea it was on the same day. “When I saw the photo, I was taken by surprise and I got goosebumps all over my body,” Mr. Ye said.

A Once-In-A-Lifetime Encounter

Considering that China has a population of over one billion people and Qingdao is a large city with multiple visitors every day, it’s remarkable the couple had this chance encounter. The two claim it’s a magical feeling and they will forever cherish the photographs, as well as Qingdao, as the foundation of their relationship.

When the children are older, we will go to Qingdao again and the family will take a photo.”
