The "Garden of the Forking Paths"

Let me go back to a paragraph I wrote yesterday about time travel.
“Time travel is the concept of moving backwards and/or forwards to different points in time, in a manner analogous to moving through space, and different from the normal "flow" of time to an earthbound observer. In this view, all points in time (including future times) "persist" in some way. “
Of course we must suppress the persistence of the future because events that didn’t happen yet cannot persist.
Now, let us see what happens if you go back in time to some of those events that do “persist” in some way.
Just try to get the CIA time machine and go back  to the moment in time and spaces when you meet the girl who would become latter your wife.
If you do this, either two girls will meet two boys, or you will see the event from outside...(outside from where???)
QUESTION: Now that you went back to the meeting event; there will be only one and the same event, or two different events?
Because, if it’s true that.”  In this view, all points in time "persist" in some way, your back in time event will also be there in the same time and space that the natural historic event.
However, if this is so, we will have at least two different historical developments, as in Jorge Luis Borges story, “The Garden of the Forking Paths”
The “logical” consequence of this will be that different historical developments will produce different realities, different worlds, and perhaps you will never come back to the present..!
