He Waited Almost 60 Years To Reveal A Crush He’s Had Since Age 7. It Was Worth It.

"... We would never have found each other."

Eric Bogliani first fell for Elaine when he was just 7 years old when they were attending the Bassett Street Primary School in Leicestershire, England. However, he never revealed his schoolboy crush to Elaine, who happened to be two years older and his sister's best friend.


His mother told him to he was "too young" to have the crush, so he kept his feelings a secret, according to a BBC interview. So, after they both left school, they lost contact.

But it seems that love was in the stars because the pair ended up connecting a few years ago.

"If it hadn't been for Facebook, we would never have found each other," stated Eric in the interview.

After reconnecting and revealing their feelings, the pair got married in the school where they first met.

Coincidentally, their former school is now a community center and licensed wedding venue called The Old House.

The couple might have had decades apart, but they are looking forward to sharing their future together.

Bogliani's decade-spanning love story brings to mind the story of preschool sweethearts who got married 20 years later and the woman who realized she met her husband decades earlier than she originally thought thanks to an old photo.
