Beijing: For those who don't believe in destiny here is an interesting real story about a much-in love Chinese couple who got the biggest shock of their lives when they got to know how the universe conspired to unite them years ahead.
As reported by Independent, a Chinese couple were busy selecting from a bunch of old photos to be included in their upcoming nuptials, when they came across a childhood picture of husband Hedong Zhang on holiday.
Zhang had visited the Giant Buddha statue at Ling Shan Mountain in the year 2000, when he was 14.
Intrigued by noticing a lady in a red coat in the background, the bride Yiqin Lu took a closer look her husband's picture and realised that it was none other but her mother.
Filled with excitement, the bride then asked her mother Lu to confirm if she was the lady visible in the photo.
The old lady, after going through some old holiday snap of her family, confirmed that the lady in the red coat was she herself.
Interestingly, the photos were taken some 15 years before the couple met.
Shocked with what they have found, the two got to know that their families had then used the same bus company and travelled in the same bus to the historical Buddha site.
The flabbergasted husband was quoted as saying, ''Although we didn’t know each other then, the skies must’ve planned this for us 16 years ahead of time.''
