Text message sent to wrong person leads to marriage

Couple find love despite 30 year age gap

Erroneous Text Leads To Marriage Three Years Later

A man in St. Louis answered a text that had been sent to him by mistake - and 3 years later he and the woman who sent the message were married.

And the lucky couple are 30 years apart in age.

Kasey Bergh, then 53, mistakenly contacted Henry Glendening in 2012 when she was stuck in Denver working. When the then 23-year-old courteously replied, their love story started, reports New York Daily News.

The first message Bergh sent read: "Hey, it's Kasey. I was supposed to connect w Maria @ the park but her plane was delayed so I'm at the Westin. Wanted to see if I could connect w anyone else."

Glendening replied with: "Sorry youve got the wrong number. But if i wasnt headed to work i'd b down to hang ;)."

Age gap not an issue

The pair spent the next few days recommending books, movies and music and to each other as their friendship blossomed. And when Bergh nervously admitted her age to him, it didn't matter to Glendening.

"It really didn't make any difference. We were so connected at that point through deeper stuff," he said.

Just one week after the first text message exchange, Glendening and Bergh met for coffee, before going for drinks and ultimately falling in love.

"From the very, very beginning it felt like we were on the same wavelength," Glendening said.

Bergh had been divorced for six years and had resigned herself to the idea that she would never find love again. "I had totally embraced I was single and that I never needed a guy. Then I met Henry," she said.

In June 2014, he proposed to her in the restaurant where they had gone the first night they met.
