# Coincidence or pattern?

When my mother turns 73, I will be 52.

My father was born in 1949. When my father turned 73, I was 49.

Is this pattern unique or coincidence? I can’t understand if I’m choosing to see a pattern, or if there is one. How is it possible that our ages can reflect birth years like this for both parents. Haley’s Comet type event?
