Couple with same name to get married

Couples meet through the Internet and get married all the time, but here's a new twist: this Florida couple has the same name.

Kelly Hildebrandt will marry Kelly Hildebrandt in October.

According to the Associated Press, it all started when 20-year-old Kelly Hildebrandt decided to search Facebook for other people with her name. Up popped Kelly Hildebrandt of Lubbock, Tex. For the next three months the two exchanged e-mails and then started calling each other.

He then decided to visit, and the couple, above, soon began dating. Eight months after Kelly Hildebrandt sent her first e-mail, he proposed. The couple plans to marry in October.

It hasn't been all smooth sailing. A trip on a cruise ship almost got canceled when the travel agent deleted one ticket from the system, thinking someone had plugged in the same information twice.
