When they were kids, Jim and Janice Catlin rode a bus together, not knowing what the future has in store for them. The trip wasn’t such a big deal and they eventually lost touch with each another.

Time and life continued until Jim and Janice reconnected recently, and sparks flew. They realized they had a lot in common and some coincidences appeared to draw them back together decades after they first met.

The two lovebirds from Wisconsin married on August 23, something they likely never saw happening.

Janice said:

“I found out not too long ago that we have lived in the same house, and all these things were coincidental … And I knew him right away when I first saw him … He’s a very calm man, and he’s very loving, and that’s why I love him … Because he loves me.”

After discovering they lived near each other, the two frequently made time for dates.

After making it official, Mr. and Mrs. Catlin rode off in a chariot. They took a tour of their town of Stevens Point before eating pizza with their friends and family.

When asked what his favorite thing is, Jim replied, “It’s just her, and we just want to stay together.”
