A Married Couple Who Met on Facebook Because They Had the Exact Same Name are Now Getting Divorced
Back in 2008, 20-year-old Kelly Hildebrandt of Coral Springs, Florida typed her name into Facebook to see if anyone else had the same name. She found a 24-year-old guy in Lubbock, Texas who was ALSO named Kelly Hildebrandt.
They became Facebook friends, and then they started messaging. That turned into phone calls, and that turned into visits. Less than a year later, male Kelly Hildebrandt proposed to female Kelly Hildebrandt. They were married in 2009.
Unfortunately, it turns out that having the exact same name as someone just might NOT be enough of a foundation for a lifetime together.
We're sad to report that Kelly Hildebrandt and Kelly Hildebrandt have decided to get divorced after three years of marriage. They're citing irreconcilable differences.
Male Kelly says, quote, "She's a Florida girl and I'm a Texas guy. We really did come from different worlds. We gave it our best shot."
And it appears female Kelly has deleted her Facebook profile.
