    More than twenty years after they graduated

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

    More than twenty years after they graduated from university, Marta and Ivana's paths crossed on a seminar in Italy. The coincidence was they married on the same day, their husbands had the same profession, and they had the same number of children.

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
