Simple Text Message Leads to Marriage

After a night out with friends, David Brown, an Englishman, woke up with a series of random numbers on his mind. After much internal debate as to why they were there, he sent a text message to the listing, asking, "Did I meet you last night?" The recipient was a confused Michelle Kitson, who lived just 60 miles from Brown. They had not met the night before, but over time, they would meet. In fact, five years after the first text message was sent, the two married.

"She really is the girl of my dreams," Brown says.
