You may have heard the story a few years back of the
storybook Facebook romance of Kelly Hildebrandt and Kelly Hildebrandt – a couple brought together via the social network based simply on the fact that the 2 shared the same name. Well all you believers in true romance, you might want to look away as it has now been revealed that their marriage has been over since July. Sad but true, it would appear that getting hitched to someone simply because they have the same name isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be (also – you would have to assume that the chances you are going to be marrying a cousin would be enough to stop this from happening in the first place, but apparently it didn’t!). Fortunately for any other female Kelly Hildebrandt’s out there, the male Kelly Hildebrandt has learned his lesson:
Male Kelly said he would be reluctant to marry anyone with the same name again. He said he suspected there would be another spotlight if that were to happen.
“I wouldn’t want my future spouse to have to deal with everything from before,” he said. “That wouldn’t be a fair situation, given the media coverage.”
The two Kelly’s appear to remain good friends, although the female of the duo has now left the social networking site.
