Xue and now-husband Ye were photographed together as teenagers in the Chinese town of Qingdao – and didn’t find out until after they married
Two strangers pose for a photo at the exact same spot, in front of a towering red sculpture in a town square in China. By mere chance they appear in the same photo, their respected gazes trained on the two separate cameras taking their picture. But in a little more than a decade they will be married.
This unlikely series of events happened to a couple in China who recently discovered the photo by chance. Xue and her now husband Ye, who were only identified by their surnames in local media reports, were unknowingly standing several meters apart in July 2000, 11 years before they met in different city a thousand miles away.
