10 Couples Who Prove Real Love Knows No Boundaries

When you really love somebody, they’re beautiful to you even when they are sleeping beside you with messy hair and drool on their face. Instead of fading with time, true love only gets stronger when faced with obstacles. While there’s no scientific evidence to prove this, there are couples out there who have certainly withstood the test of time, and held each other close against all odds.

Cheering for the power of love, Bright Side has picked 10 couples with beautiful love stories to share with our readers.
