Couple Watches Home Video & Discovers Their Paths Crossed 16 Years Before They Met (WATCH)

Watching old home movies is always fun, but what if in between making fun of outdated clothing and crazy hairstyles, you suddenly saw your spouse -- as a teenager no less -- pop up in the video your parents shot 26 years ago? That's exactly what happened for New Jersey couple, Jourdan and Ryan Spencer, who discovered that they'd been at a Pennsylvania theme park on the very same day, at the exact same spot, 16 years before meeting on a blind date. 


Can you imagine? It's almost like the universe telling you: Look, here is the person you're supposed to meet! 

The couple married in 2007 and now has three children. While Jourdan says they were shocked at first, she believes that because she and Ryan were raised just 45 minutes away from each other, they may have had similar encounters they don't know about yet:

The world is not as big as it seems. I do believe that everything happens for a reason and that people come into our lives when they're meant to and leave when they're meant to, and obviously we were supposed to meet again. Our paths crossed more than once.

Check out the video in which a young Ryan, wearing glasses, definitely seems to be looking for someone:

And just when you think this story couldn't get any cuter, Jourdan explained that when she and her husband shared the video with their kids, daughter Sophie, 6, repeatedly asked, "'How did Daddy know you were there?'"

Awww! So sweet! For those who believe the universe places you and your better half in each other's paths, this story sure seems to support that theory!

Do you and your spouse have a random chance encounter story or memories of being in the same place at the same time? Tell all!
