I got married in 2011 and went to the Maldives on honeymoon. It was an idyllic place and our cabin was literally 10m from the beach. In the clear waters you could see all sorts of fish and small sharks praying on them. My wife was always uneasy about my swimming in the sea saying that where there are small sharks there could be big sharks. She'd even sincerely asked me to stop going in but I'd looked it up of course and knew there were no big sharks so laughed it off.
Whilst we were there, the husband of a honeymoon couple had been attacked and killed by a shark on honeymoon in the Seychelles, somewhere there isn't supposed to be shark attacks either. This was bad enough but when we read the story they had married on the same date as us and the guy was wearing the exact same suit as me. Worst of all they had married at St Michael's church in Dalton, Lancashire. If you don't know my real name you can figure it out from the above.
It sounds ridiculously unreal but here's the story http://www.bbc.co.uk...ashire-14562331
I'm no believer in coincidences that are meant to be but safe to say I didn't swim in the sea for the rest of the trip.
