24 Photographs that’ll Leave You Stunned by the Power of Fate

Love can come and find you in the most unexpected ways and in the most bizarre places. Destiny has its own way of working things out. Neither I or you can do much about it. Give it a thought, what if you have already met your future husband/wife twenty years ago.

Sounds unrealistic, doesn’t it? Well, that’s what happened to the couples in the below compilation. They were destined to be together. Cupid hit them hard and they ended up together.

1. “In preschool, we always used to be together, but we lost touch in the future. 20 years later, we met at our friend’s place, and now we date again”

2. This couple realized that they met before marriage in an amusement park only when they were going through old pictures.

3. Meeting the love of your life at a music festival is not how it goes down generally but for this couple it did. 48 days later and voila, they are still together.

4. Now, look at these cute munchkins. Who knew they will end up together. “We knew each other all our lives. And I’m sure we were destined to be together”

17. 8 years ago and those cheesy pick-up lines really did work out for this couple.

“8+ years ago, I was living in Arizona and was out with my friend at a bar called Rula Bula. After a few Long Island iced teas, I demanded we take a picture. When I smiled and hit the flash button, I never in a million years imagined that I would be capturing my future husband in the background. I also never imagined I would meet him approximately 3 minutes after that photo was taken. He confidently walked up to me and laid down some of the cheesiest pickup lines (which I now don’t remember) but apparently, they worked. Later that night, we exchanged numbers, and I stored him in my phone as “Matty Allen Future Husband.” A month later, after we had become pretty much inseparable, Matt found out that his job was moving him to Colorado. So… I decided to move with him. My parents were not too happy about my decision seeing as I had just met this guy and barely knew him a month, not to mention was moving to a different state with him that I had never even been to before. They thought I was being impulsive and crazy, but I guess it’s true- when you know, you know! Luckily, I was able to convince the company I worked for at the time to transfer me to Colorado, so it all worked out. I mean, it really ALL worked out. Matt is now my husband and here we are, 8 years later, married, and still living together in Colorado. Of course, we did recently take a trip back to Arizona so we could visit Rula Bula and take an updated photo.”

“Kathleen was my first friend. I was 2 years old when we ‘met’ living in Geneva, Switzerland (she’s 8 months younger than me). Our parents were close friends & our families did practically everything together. When I turned 5, my family moved to the United States & lost contact with Kathleen’s family for many years. It would be decades before the internet, specifically Facebook, came about and enabled our parents to finally track each other down. Shortly after reconnecting, Kathleen’s family arranged a trip to come visit us in the U.S. I was now 18 and Kathleen was 17. I remember having some sort of feelings for her, but I figured it was just the familiarity of our childhoods. We even briefly talked about her going to my High School prom with me, but it never happened. After that visit, Kathleen & her family returned to Switzerland and we ended up losing touch again for the next few years. Then, on April 24, 2009, my mother passed away after having a stroke. She suffered for a long time with serious health issues including diabetes & kidney failure. It was so devastating and painful to lose her. The day after she passed, I received a message on Facebook that said, “It’s Kathleen, I hope you remember me.” She was reaching out to offer her condolences. After that message, we ended up talking every day. Then one afternoon, I randomly said “What if we had never left Switzerland?” And she answered, “Well we would have probably ended up together.” That simple exchange of words changed everything. For Kathleen’s birthday, her parents bought her a flight to come visit me in Philadelphia. When she arrived, we both couldn’t deny the magnetic pull between us- which I believe was partially my stubborn mother getting her way up in heaven. Kathleen & I had no idea if we could make this relationship work, especially living across the world from each other, but a bond like ours is not easy to replace. In the end it took 7 years of being in a long distance relationship. Everyone told us it would never work, but on December 28, 2016 we proved them all wrong when I married my best & first friend. My mom loved Kathleen like a daughter & I know she is smiling down on us.”

19. This two were preschool mates and after 25 years a dating app brought them back together.

20. Ramiro and Alexandra were high school sweethearts at the age of 15 who separated ways after Ramiro’s mother died, fastforward they met again and now together since 2015.

"Ramiro was my first High School crush and young love. We were 15 years old and living in Canada when Ramiro told me he was moving to Argentina. His mom passed away when he was younger and his family decided it was best for them to move back home to Argentina. I was devastated to think I would never see him again, but being so young, there was nothing I could do. I had no choice but to say goodbye. As the years went on, we inevitably lost touch. Then in 2008, I heard through word of mouth that Ramiro was moving back to Canada for good. Soon after, we started running into each other while out with mutual friends. We would reminisce about the innocent puppy love we shared back in the day and laugh. Even after all that time, I still had butterflies when I talked to him. It was obvious I still had love for the boy next door who stole my heart all those years ago. For the next few years, we'd continue to bump into each other in the most random places- Rib Fest in Toronto, at World Cup celebrations downtown, at soccer games, etc. Even in crowds filled with thousands of people, somehow our eyes met. I remember going home after each encounter and telling my family, "I don’t know what is happening but it feels like fate keeps pushing us together." Turns out, Ramiro felt the same way. In November 2015 he finally asked me to be his girlfriend and we've been inseparable ever since. The craziest part about our story is that a few months ago, his sister went to a psychic medium to try and communicate with their mom who passed away. The medium told her that their mom was always with them and was even able to validate specific memories of their past. Then the medium said, "Your mom wants your brother to know that she is the one who pushed Alexandra into Ramiro’s path every time." I truly believe she was behind the magic that brought us back together again."

21. Preschool sweethearts, after 30 years, Amy and Justin met at a dating app and found out about their past that resulted in their inevitable future together.

“Justin & I met on a dating site when we were both 32 years old. We were two wounded hearts coming together. A few years before we met, Justin’s fiancé was tragically murdered the night before they were supposed to move in together. It took him years to cope with this unexpected & devastating loss. I too was damaged. Most of my past relationships had been with men who mistreated me and made me feel unworthy. When I came across Justin’s profile, something drew me towards him. When we started talking, we had an instant chemistry. It felt like we had known each other forever. When we first met, Justin told me he liked my name because his first crush was a girl named Amy in preschool. I jokingly told him I didn't want to hear about another girl named Amy who wasn't me. A month into our relationship, I pointed out a scar above Justin's eye & asked him how he got it. He told me it was from falling off the monkey bars at "good ol' Sunshine preschool." My jaw dropped, I squealed, "What! That's where I went to preschool!" And then another realization, "Justin! We're the same age! We must have gone to preschool together!" Justin looked at me in a state of shock & then said, "Babe, don't you remember me telling you about my 1st crush being a girl named Amy?" My heart almost exploded. "Maybe I was that Amy!" I ecstatically said, "Oh my god, babe. We're preschool sweethearts!" We immediately called our moms & had them dig through old photos. Sure enough, my mom found our class picture from Sunshine Preschool, and not only were Justin and I both in it, but we were sitting right next to each other. This confirmed that we were in fact Preschool Sweethearts, and furthermore, destined to be together from the start. We also believe that Justin's late fiancé is his guardian angel who guided us back together. About 2 years after we started dating, I wrote a letter to a news station about our story. 3 weeks later, we were invited to appear on The View, but little did I know, there was a whole other surprise in store. Justin proposed to me live on TV and had students from Sunshine Preschool hold up signs that said, “Amy, will you marry me?” I’m here to say second chances are possible"

22. Met in 4th grade, started dating, became teen parents and now they are happily married.

View this post on Instagram

"I met James in fourth grade. We were just friends in grade school and went on to attend different high schools but we reconnected during summer break in 2006. On Valentine's Day, when we were both Juniors in High School, James asked me to be his girlfriend. Two years later, when we were only 18, I got pregnant with our first child. I was more nervous to tell James than I was my parents. However, he held me in his arms and assured me that it was always his plan to have a family with me, we would just be doing things a little out of order now. He asked me to be his wife on Valentine's Day 2008 and we had the most beautiful wedding in the summer of 2010. Being teen parents came with it's fair share of obstacles. On top of being so young, our first son was born with autism. James and I are blessed to have such wonderful families that helped us tremendously when we were first starting out. We made sure to work opposite shifts as to not abuse the help they provided us, but we realize how fortunate we were to of always had their support. Our second child, a girl, came into the world on June 26th, 2011. An anniversary baby! We've now been together for 10 years, married for 6, and have three kids. I could not imagine this journey with anyone else but James. He really is my best friend. It's so easy to stay in love with him because we can talk about anything and everything. He is such a wonderful father and husband. He constantly makes me laugh and tells me how beautiful I am. I feel so lucky that I got to marry my first love and I know he will be my last."

23. From sneaking out for movie dates at 6th grade now after a trip to Vegas they are engaged.

View this post on Instagram

"Michael & I met in sixth grade. Yup. That’s right…sixth freaking grade. I was like 5’7 and he was basically 5’3 when we met. People thought I was his babysitter! Luckily, he's grown since then. We started dating and fell madly in love in sixth grade. We would sneak into movie theaters and make out, go to the Del Mar fair together, and hang out at each other’s houses with the door open (thanks Dad!) We dated through 8th grade and then parted ways because well, High School was coming. We were teenagers and needless to say, Michael and I went on to date other people. We would still talk and occasionally he would ask me out on dates, to which I'd laugh, say no, and change the subject. Then college came around and he literally manipulated me to go to Vegas with him. After some convincing, I finally agreed to tag along with him and his friends. He ended up totally impressing me with his quick wit, business smarts, and romantic ways. It dawned on me that everything I was looking for the whole time was right in front of my face- a rad best friend who 'gets me'. We went on to date for a couple of years and now we're engaged."

24. Both of their moms are best friends and now these two are already planning to move in together after grad.

View this post on Instagram

"Our moms have been best friends since high school, so they were thrilled when they found out they were pregnant at the same time. They were due the EXACT same day, but I ended up beating Adam by 3 weeks. I grew up in Denver, CO while Adam's family lived in Westchester, NY. Growing up, my mom would always tell me about her best friend’s son, but all I knew was that we lived weirdly parallel lives. I would fall off my bike and scrape my leg and the next week he would randomly do the same. I should have known how things would turn out. In high school, my family decided to take a trip to Westchester to visit Adam's family, and we instantly clicked. We became best friends and continued to talk all the time. During Senior year, Adam called me one day and asked me to go to prom with him. I couldn't have been more excited. I booked my plane ticket and before I knew it, I was on my way back to Manchester again for a weekend that would change my life. Adam kissed me during the last slow song and it was then I realized we were meant to be together. We're both away at different colleges now, but our relationship is still going strong. We see each other once a month and are planning to move in together after we graduate. I’m convinced our moms planned it to be this way all along."
