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.
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.
Putting The Puzzle Pieces Together
Mr. Ye found his version of the photo and his posture is the same as it appears in his wife’s photo. “That was my pose for taking photos… It was the same posture, just from a different angle,” he said. He shared the story about the chance encounter, and the photos have gone viral on social media in China.
The Power Of Fate
The couple’s friends have interpreted the photos as a form of destiny, signifying that the couple was meant for each other. Now married for five years, the couple is shocked by the power of fate and believe their encounter was a miracle. Qingdao now holds a special place in their hearts.
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.
Making Plans To Replicate The Photo
The couple is currently making plans to return to Qingdao and the May Fourth Square to replicate the now timeless photo with their twin daughters. “It seems that Qingdao is certainly one of the most special cities for us. When the children are older, we will go to Qingdao again and the family will take a photo.”
