According to The Knot website, the couple met at a dance. Seeking a place to sit because her feet were tired, Thompson asked Barnes if the seat next to him was taken.
“It is now,” Barnes said.

The Hindus believe that a wet knot is difficult to untie, according to the Solutions Bridal website.
If that’s the case, then these newlyweds can expect a long, happy marriage.
