Former Teenage Lovers Head Down the Aisle Thirty Years Since First Meeting

I have heard this quote countless times and I have also heard so many stories where someone has had to let go and most often,  it ends there. But ever so often we get to hear stories in which the person does go back or in the case of an Australian newlywed couple, somehow, some way they manage to cross paths again.

23 years ago Sharon and Cary were young and in love. They were two adolescents who spent their summer stealing kisses and “sneaking out” to be together. Then one day things ended. The two grew up and moved on. They got married, had families, and occasionally partook in the asking of the age-old question “what if?”

Little did they know that they would not have to spend the rest of their lives wondering. Fate, if you believe in that sort of thing, would result in them getting their answer. One day a relative of Sharon ran in to Cary. Their discussion, during which they exchanged information, resulted in him and Sharon reuniting. According to Sharon seeing Cary was “all new but old as well.”

Eventually the two of them would head back down the aisle only this time together — thirty years after they first met. For more on this fairytale (turns out they do exist!) love story visit Geelong.

Have you or someone you know ever been reunited with a lost love?
