It's destiny! Married couple realise their paths had crossed 11 years before they met after the husband saw himself in his wife's old photo
A married couple were stunned to find their paths had unknowingly crossed more than a decade before they met.
Mr Ye, 35, found himself in an old holiday photo of his wife, Ms Xue, taken in Qingdao of east China in 2000.
It was a vacation trip to both of them when Mr Ye travelled to Qingdao with a tour group and Ms Xue visited the city with her mother.
The pair told Chengdu Business Daily that they made the discovery when Mr Ye was tidying the study room at his mother-in-law's house on March 4.
'I was looking at the picture where my wife was sitting in front of the May Four Square, there's also a man standing at far back. My reaction was: "Oh wait, that was me!"' exclaimed Mr Ye.
He went back home and found his holiday picture, taken on July 28, 2000, showing the 17-year-old Mr Ye posing in front of the same landmark in Qingdao.
The couple were shocked when they saw a young boy, wearing blue T-shirt and black trousers, appeared in both pictures in the same pose.
Ms Xue felt it was a miracle and stunned by the power of fate.
They shared the pictures to their friends and most of them believed the two were destined to be together.
Mr Ye first met his wife through his friends in 2011 when he returned to Chengdu, his hometown, after graduating from university in Suzhou, according to the report.
