Accidental Text to Stranger Leads to Wedding Bells


(NEWSER) – When Kasey Bergh accidentally sent a text to Henry Glendening, a complete stranger, during a business trip to Denver in 2012, her primary emotion was frustration at not being able to get a hold of any of her Nestlé-Purina colleagues. Turns out Glendening was in fact the exact person she needed, even though, at 23, he was 30 years her junior, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. On June 27, 2015, almost exactly three years after the happy accident, the couple tied the knot in St. Louis, reports WNEP, and are now sharing their story of how an errant text and two open minds changed everything. “[The age gap] really didn’t make any difference,” Glendening said. “We were so connected at that point through deeper stuff.”

Not only did the two connect about books, music, and movies, there were little things they noticed right from the start—like the time they arrived at a coffee shop at different times but ordered the exact same drink. Bergh, who’d divorced six years earlier, says she was settling into midlife as a single woman: “I had totally embraced I was single and that I never needed a guy,” Bergh said. Henry, meanwhile, was in an unhappy relationship and working a dead-end retail job—while doing a lot of soul-searching. Bergh helped him brainstorm what he really wanted. “Kasey is a huge inspirer,” he says. “She wasn’t recommending or advocating any particular direction I go, but she encouraged exploring.” Today he works at a digital agency and while the two are sometimes mistaken as mother and son, the newlyweds just “shrug it off,” as the Post-Dispatch puts it.
