As people often say, fate works in mysterious ways. So was the case for Alan and Cathy , two ordinary people from England with an unordinary destiny.
The two met when they were, respectively, 21 and 18 years old and fell in love. Alan proposed marriage to Cathy and she happily accepted but after being engaged for two years they broke up. Soon Cathy moved away where she met someone else and later got married. Alan was devastated but never stopped loving Cathy and kept the memory for her in his heart. It was 37 years later when the two met again at a friend’s house. Their mutual friend had arranged for them to meet not telling anyone. Cathy has been divorced for years and Alan was also single so it was only natural they got together again. It was like they have never been separated. So a few years after they met again Alan got the courage to propose for the second time to Cathy at the exact same spot where he did it back in 1968. Naturally, she said ‘yes’ and they got married exactly 47 years after Alan’s first proposal.
