They say there's no such thing as coincidences, and yet it's tough to explain how Ye and Xue, two different people were in the exact same spot 18 years earlier, and wind up getting married years later. But the wife, Xue, had no idea that her husband, Ye, appeared in the same photo she took when she was a teenager. Was it random, or were these two destined to meet and live happily ever after?
It turns out that they had crossed paths 18 years ago when they went to the same place. But they hadn't realized this had happened until they started looking through Xue's old photos.
Destiny had seemingly brought these two together at the May Fourth Square in Quindao, a seaside city in China. In July 2000, the couple had visited the Square, but they were still teenagers and didn't have a clue who the other person was.
While Xue had gone with her Mom to take photos at the Square, Ye was there with a tour group. Then, somehow, Ye accidentally photobombed his future wife, which he hadn't even met yet. Now that's what we call destiny.
He came across the photo of his wife, Xue, sitting at the May Fourth Square, and of course, he was standing on the far right and he recognized himself immediately. But until this point, the two thought they had met in 2011.
When he returned to Chengdu and met Xue, they realized they had a future together and got married. They also took their wedding photos in the city of Qingdao, where destiny had brought them together 18 years earlier.
They might have never known the truth had Ye not been cleaning his mother-in-law's study room and discovered the photo. Once they told their friends and family about the photo, everyone agreed 100% that Ye and Xue's love was something that was simply meant to be.
In the meantime, they have fond memories and the photos that proved fate had meant for them to come together. Whether you believe in such things, you can't deny that it makes for one heck of an amazing romantic coincidence.
