June 26, 2020
Do you still remember the first crush you had when you were little? Your eyes widen, your cheeks turn red and you can't help but stare with love and affection at that person who, inexplicably, is making your heart beat. These first crushes usually happen in kindergarten and in the elementary school years, and there is a 20 year old British boy named Jack Callow who just can't forget the "marriage" he had with his kindergarten companion. ..16 years earlier!

It all started when Jack Callow pulled old photographs of the kindergarten years with his class of friends out of his memory drawer, and the memory came back of when he decided to "propose" behind a tree to his kindergarten companion. The class and kindergarten teachers were so enthusiastic and amused by Jack Callow's proposal that they decided to organize a fake wedding, complete with wedding ceremony and guests!
The memories surfaced for Jack when he went to visit his grandfather for his 75th birthday, and there, among the dusty albums of old childhood photographs, Jack found the photos of the "pre-school wedding" that they had organized for him and his "bride" 16 years earlier; but the British boy could not have known that posting these old photos on his Twitter feed would begin the hunt for the girlfriend of the past ...
On the story, Jack said: "It's nice to see people interested in your past or what you've done, but it's nice to see so many people sharing the same stories, I had no idea that so many people had had "fake weddings "in kindergarten. It's very cute. I think everyone thought my Twitter story was very sweet."
And the publication of the old photos of the kindergarten wedding on Twitter created an avalanche of sharing and research on where Jack's childhood "wife" may have ended up after all those years ... and in the end she was found!
The girl is also now 20 years old. Her name is Rena Jutla, and she is a university student from Buckinghamshire. She too, once she was reached by the Twitter search, was pleasantly moved by how much the memories resurfaced after seeing those old photos of 16 years ago ...
Now, Jack is a handsome 20 year old guy ....
... and Rena a brilliant student of 21!
Of course, the publication on Twitter of the old school wedding photos did not bring the two young English people closer together, but the fact is that a nice trip down memory lane does not hurt anyone!
