The Love Story That Started With a Typo [Video]

In January 2007, Rachel P. Salazar and Ruben P. Salazar were living 9,000 miles apart and completely unaware of each other’s existence. But when an email meant for Rachel accidentally went to Ruben, it wasn’t long before an ordinary mistake began to look like an extraordinary stroke of luck.

  1. She did it for the green card… ok that was harsh but my luck with love is not going so well right now and I'm being pessimistic…

    • I know you are being a pessimist but I'm just going to put this out there. He asked her first. And they have been together for the past 5 years. If she didnt want him she could have left with the green card, but she didnt. Why? Cause they were the real deal holy field my friend.

  2. I'm in the same situation, here name is even Rachel. Fell in love with a girl in the UK and here I am in California. She is the most amazing person I've ever met, and I've never felt this deeply connected with anyone before. And I was living with a woman for 3 years, never felt as connected with her as I feel with my Rachel.

    I can only hope that my story ends as well as these two.

  3. And to think my story started out with falling in love with a guy who used the word 'Zeitgeist' correctly in a sentence…

  4. Usually speaking, marrying someone with the exact same last name is kinda. You know. incest.

    I wonder how distantly related they are? Because they are, somewhere back down the line.

    • … following that logic, everyone who is married is creating incest, we're all related down the line.

      To be safe, I wouldn't make goo goo eyes at the monkeys at the zoo either.

    • Actually, my grandfather changed his name when he came to this country, so we are in not actually related to others with the same last name. That happens all the time, so there are many, many people out there who have the same last name that are not related at all. You think everyone in the world with the last name Smith are related?

      • Actually in some places such as Ireland, last names were an indicator or where you were from, not who you were descendant from. McGinley for example has many names similar sounding or spelling but these slight differences were because when registars were beginning out in the UK years ago, a lot of irish (and many english, scots and welsh) could not read or write, but obviously the people making the records could, so they wrote down what they thought, hence the slight different variations of one name. But McGinley is actually a clan name, the name given to where the clan was FROM not who they were descendant from. Its the same with a lot of Scottish and Irish names. Probably a lot more places have the same kinda clan names but I'm Scottish and my partner is Irish. Having the same last name does not necessarily mean you are related in any way.

        Saying that, if you believe in the old testament of the bible, every human being on earth is related due to Noah, his wife and their descendants being the only ones who got on the ark and the rest of the world was destroyed.
        If you believe in science where all living things are from the matter created by the big bang, are we not all technically created originally from one single atom which over time has multiplied and evolved over time?

        Who cares. These two found love and at the end of the day, thats all that matters!

    • Yeah, I can totally see that. The guy looks like he's got Latino roots and she's from Thailand. Very close genetically indeed.
