Real-life love stories

When Sebastiano Puglia first met a young woman named Giovanna, he fell in love. He would write poems for her and recite them outside her window in hopes of winning her heart. His plan worked; they are still together after 65 years of marriage.

 

Laura Ricciardi, Sebastiano and Giovanna's granddaughter, shared their love story on CNN iReport just in time for Valentine's Day. "I think they have any amazingly strong relationship," she said. "I haven't been able to figure out their secret yet, but I do think it has to do with an incredible amount of mutual respect. And spunk. There's still so much fire between them."

 

Laura was one of several iReporters to share how-we-met stories just like the couples in "When Harry Met Sally." The submissions were just as delightful as the classic romantic comedy, which hit theaters 20 years ago.

 

Lulis and Mitch met on a rainy day in New York. They lived in different cities at the time, but now are happily married 15 years later. Al and Roberta met at a country club in California. Al waited more than an hour to ask Roberta to dance -- he was listening for a slow song. Becky and John (full disclosure: they’re my in-laws) admired each other at work and just celebrated 31 years of marriage. And an angry phone call brought Andy and Adriana together; you should hear their story – it's hilarious.

 

It was so fun to hear such sweet stories and inspiring to see couples who have found true love. Check here to watch all of the submissions, along with a couple from Team iReport. We hope you all have a happy Valentine’s Day!
