Dating site reunites siblings decades later

43835.jpegA brother and sister have found each other after being separated for thirty-five years. They met on a dating site and during their first real-life encounter, discovered that their childhoods had some uncanny similarities.

It was during their first real-life meeting, in a London pub that Sarah and George surprised each other when informing the other of their childhood. Same place, same names for the parents, same date of separation - 1975 - and each one had tried to find the other sibling but to no avail.

When the parents split up in 1975, Kate (then six years old) went to live in Edinburgh, Scotland with her mother and George (then 11) stayed in London with his father. Then they lost touch with one another. When adults, both had tried and failed numerous times to find their sibling, until they gave up. Kate had married and changed her name from Bentley to Kemp, making George's quest more difficult.

Equally difficult was the embarrassment they felt when realising they were brother and sister - after they had met on a dating site which promised "hot action and erotic meetings" last November. Kate spoke of her "surprise, joy and embarrassment" in an interview with BBC.

She went on to say that they discovered they had so much in common, it was as if they had known each other all their lives. They had.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
