3 stories of bizarre coincidence
Husbands and wives discover they had weird coincidental connections as kids.

In an almost spooky twist of fate, a married couple discovered when watching an old home movie together that they’d been filmed on the same day at the same amusement park at the same time, 16 years before they actually met, according to Huffington Post.

Wait a minute, that's me!

10-year-old Jourdan was being filmed waiting in line to use the water slide way back in 1988. As she stands there, 13-year-old Ryan wanders into the frame. He was a complete stranger to Jourdan. They only met 16 years later during a blind date, and, while watching home movies at a later point came across the footage.

Written in the sand

It’s something they find quite amazing, but it may not even be that unusual- the Daily Mail reported last year about Nick and Aimee who were looking through some pictures taken 20 years ago, 11 years before they ever met. Despite living hundreds of kilometres apart, a holiday snap captured both of them playing on the same beach as children.

The pre-school parents

In case you don’t believe those stories, here’s another one from Today: Jason and Jessica discovered that they may have gone to the same pre-school 17 years before meeting as adults. Despite living far apart, Jason had attended the same pre-school as Jessica for a few months. Neither he nor Jessica could remember any of the details, though, so it wasn’t until Jason found an ancient photo of himself wearing a Superman costume walking with other kids that he found the proof. Just over his shoulder was his wife as a child, dressed in a genie outfit! (See photo above).

Some parents meet as kids, go through school together and eventually marry, while some live totally separate lives as children and only meet as adults.

It would seem that coincidences such as these happen more often than you’d expect. Maybe it’s time to take out those home movies and boxes of photos and see who might be lurking just over your shoulder.
