Elvis and Priscilla

In 1959, Elvis met Priscilla Wagner in Germany, where he was serving in the Army. He was 24, she was 14, but he thought she was older because of her looks. They kept contact over phone until after Priscilla graduated high school in 1963, when they moved in together at Graceland. In 1966, Elvis proposed. They were married in 1967 and had their Lisa Marie in 1968. They were happy in their marriage at first, but when Elvis had a comeback in the 60s they grew apart due to his touring. They divorced in 1973, but were on good terms until his death.
The King of Rock 'n' Roll and his stylish young wife were one of the most adorable sixties couples, weren't they?
