Facebook Glitch Results in Love

A technical glitch on Facebook resulted in happily ever after for two strangers.

A newlywed couple based in the US has Facebook to thank for their love story.

In 2009, Schuyler Benson from South Arkansas tried logging into his account on his phone, only to find that he was already logged into Colorado woman Celeste Zendler's account.

Schuyler shared on Imgur, "she and I had never met, never lived in the same state, had no mutual friends in real life or online, shared no Facebook interests."

Once Schuyler and Celeste realised what was going on, they started communicating with one another by posting statuses on her Facebook page.

The pair continued communicating for a week using the same account, until Schuyler was able to log out and send Celeste a friend request.

"Turns out we had a lot in common," Schuyler wrote on Imgur. "Like, a LOT in common. We became close friends online, and finally we met in person in June of 2013."

That same year, Celeste moved to Arkansas so they could officially be together. The couple became engaged less than a year later, and tied the knot on June 21, 2015.

A little glitch on social media led to Schuyler finding his true love. "I found my partner, my best friend, my great love via a simple glitch in social media." 

"There are awful things in this world, but sometimes there's beauty, too," Schuyler added. "This is my beauty."
