Giving us a modern-day fairytale for the ages, Joe Jonas started talking to Sophie Turner via Instagram DMs in early 2016.

Though they didn't meet in person until October of the same year, that first meeting pretty much sealed the deal.

"He didn't bring security. He brought a friend, and they drank just as hard as the rest of us. I remember the two of us spending only a couple of minutes on the dance floor, and then we just found a space far in the corner and we just talked," she shared.

"We talked for hours, and hours, and hours. And I was, like, not bored. It wasn't contrived. It wasn't small talk — it was just so easy. And soon we were, like, inseparable. I went on tour with him," Turner shared.

They wed — twice! — in 2019 after almost three years together. The Game of Thrones actress was 23 and her groom was 28. Now, they have two young daughters together.

The eldest Jonas tied the knot with his longtime love, Danielle Deleasa, in 2009. He was 22 and she was 23.

The two are still going strong and have since welcomed two daughters, Alena Rose and Valentina Angelina.

This country legend is so private about her marriage, we almost forget she has a husband.

Dolly Parton and Carl Thomas Dean first met at a laundromat in Nashville when Parton was just 18 years old.

"I was surprised and delighted that while he talked to me, he looked at my face (a rare thing for me)," she wrote on her website while celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. "He seemed to be genuinely interested in finding out who I was and what I was about."

Two years later, in 1966, they got married with only Parton's mother, the pastor and his wife present.
