Couple With the Same Name Divorces Because They Had Nothing Else in Common

broken heartI admit I've looked online to see if there are other people out there with the same name exact name as me (even my soon-to-be married name). And while there are only a few of them, they are out there. I've never thought we'd have anything else in common or we'd be insta-friends. Still, that doesn't it mean connections like that don't occur ... Consider how back in '08, a guy named Kelly Carl Hildebrandt and a girl named Kelly Katrina Hildebrandt found one another on Facebook and musta figured their shared name was a sign! They were so blinded by one another's amazing name that they fell head over heels for one another -- and got married! So crazy!

But three years later, they've decided to call it quits. Womp womp. Guess having the same name as your spouse isn't the key to wedded bliss!?


Kelly Carl, referred to as "the male Hildebrandt," told NBC 6 in Miami:

We gave it our best shot. She’s a Florida girl, and I’m a Texas guy. We really did come from pretty different worlds.

Aw, how sad. But how funny that they seemed to think their quirky same-name bond was enough to base an entire marriage on! Kinda like how other trivial matters -- like say, both being gingers or blondes or brunettes, sharing a birthday (two Geminis = nightmare!), or an alma mater or even a group of friends -- won't necessarily translate to the perfect foundation for lasting love. Duh.
But hey, good for these crazy kids for giving it a shot. Next time around, let's hope they build a deeper, longer-term bond based on a little more than a name. After all, it's not like they won't be able to share a name once they're happily re-married!
Have you ever met someone with your same exact name?
