Years ago I read a story about a married couple who had been married more than three decades. That in and of itself is not that unusual (well, maybe it is in our day and time), but their story fascinated me. They had met 35 years before, while both were vacationing overseas in Japan with friends. As fate would have it, each of them took guided tours of the city with separate groups, and both groups ended up touring the same Japanese flower shop at exactly the same time. There the man accidentally bumped into the woman as he was maneuvering through the crowd. He politely apologized and, after a brief moment of casual conversation, they both went their separate ways.
