Make a Movie Out of This Story Immediately, Please

So check this out:

Two Jordanians had a torrid online romance and, after several months, decided to get married. When they met F2F for the first time, they were shocked to discover that they were already husband and wife. According to an Agence France-Press article quoting the official Jordan News Agency, the two were separated from each other but had coincidentally met (again) and fallen in love (again) in a chat room while disguised by their screen names. The rekindled romance ended immediately after they discovered the truth.


Also, slightly sad.

Quirky story via Boing Boing.

Wow. That last sentence is the biggest downer I've read in a long, long time. Thanks, Robin. Thanks a lot.

whatEVER. they totally knew it was each other. or one of them did. they could tell by the writing style.. or the screen name.. or SOMETHING revealed during their 'talks.' don'tchathink? i'm not cynical, i'm very much the romantic, and this is wonderful story. but i doubt it. i seriously doubt it.
