The bride, Miss Zhu Haiyan, and groom, Wang Min, were born in the same county in Henan province in China, and both were 25 years old, but they did not know each other.

Wang was introduced to Miss Zhu in 2011 by a friend when he retired from army service and returned home. Miss Zhu is an assistant in a dental clinic.

Once introduced, they were attracted to each other and quickly became good friends. Soon Wang and some friends were invited to Zhu's home as guests, and whilst chatting away, Miss Zhu was showing a photo album to friends, and Wang was shocked when seeing the photo below. "The boy looks very much like me?!" Wang said. He took a copy of the photo with his mobile phone and went home to show his parents. His parents carefully examined the photo and confirmed that this boy was Wang Min.

In the photo below, Miss Zhu was only 5 years old, watching her aunt getting married. She was so cute, so her aunt printed a spare copy for her to keep. but no one knew this boy.

Wang said: "I must have been just passing by and interested in the event."

In June this year, they ware married. Wang is so happy:"We were meant to be together. we had proper photos taken long ago and a formal wedding as well!"

Miss Zhu says: "... we will cherish this arrangement of destiny, and look after each other well."

Another young couple, Miss Lu Yixing, and Mr. Zhang Hedong:

On 29th May, 2016, while they were sorting out old photos to prepare for the wedding screening, Lu suddenly jumped up, pointing to one of the photos: "Isn't this my mother standing behind you?!"

Really?! Miss Lu showed her mother the photo, "Yes, but it really is too much of a coincidence?!" Lu's mother was confused....were those superstitions actually true.?  But she knew it was her!  They have her photo at home and it matches all the background detail and also passers-by!(below, screenshot)

(The family photo matches the one of the boy. (screenshot)

The groom Zhang was so bewildered, and held his bride tightly: "For heaven's sake, I have been waiting for you for 16 years!"

"Well, they did go to the same place for holidays, and took the above photo to evidence their relationship," as one Chinese blog noted.
