A couple from China, who have been married for five years, recently discovered that they had crossed paths as teenagers nearly two decades ago - and it was an old photograph that revealed this part of their love story.
They had appeared in the same photo without even knowing it, 18 years ago.
The couple from Chengdu were left speechless, when they found out that they had both visited the May Fourth Square in the seaside city of Qingdao at the exact same moment in July 2000.
They were strangers at the time, and Mr Ye was on holiday and visiting the landmark with a tour group, reported local media. His future wife, surnamed Xue, was there with her mother.
