The reunited siblings met online and discovered they had a lot in common: both had parents who split in a divorce and both had a sibling they hadn't seen in years because of that divorce.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Erik de Vries and Josephine Egberts were two single people in the Netherlands. They met on the dating app Tinder, and things got off to a good start. They flirted a little online and found a lot in common. Both had parents who split in a divorce. Both had a sibling they hadn't seen in years because of that divorce. And both soon realized they had found their long-lost sibling - each other. No dates for these two. But they did get to take their first family portrait in 15 years. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
