While it is a popular saying that sometimes no one knows the person one would end up marrying, it is not every time people talk about knowing their wives before they are even born.

A young man Nanpon with the Twitter handle @thepoetison joined the "How it started. How it's going" challenge as he shared a photo that shows him and his lover together as kids.

@thepoetison said when his fiancee's mother was pregnant with her, he told her that she would give birth to a girl who will become his partner.
