Love is interesting and tricky and no one really knows how it works. Everyone gets a different love story and some stand out more than others.
The story of how Amy and Justin Pounders met is one that will melt hearts any time.
According to WASBST, the couple had a very strong connection they could not quite place, not knowing that they had met during their pres-chool days.
They met again when they were adults on a match-making site, and realised they had known each other 30 years ago.
Their realisation started when Justin told Amy how he came to have the scar above one of his eyes, mentioning the school he was in when he fell off the monkey bars.
The name of the school had Amy recalling old memories when she too discovered she had attended the same school as a child at the time he did.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the two’s suspicion that they were childhood sweethearts was confirmed eight months later when Justin’s mother brought out the photo the two had taken together as kids.
“Our hearts found a connection at 3 years old very innocently, but it was enough to recognise it again 30 years later,” Amy said.
The two took a step further and got married in their hometown where 200 guests were present to witness the occasion.
