Man marries secret childhood crush from the 1950's after reuniting on Facebook

A boy’s secret childhood crush has just evolved into a great modern love story spanning 60 years – thanks to social media. 

When Eric Bogliani was in primary school, he had a big crush on his sister’s best friend, Elaine. But apparently his mother told him to bottle up his feelings because of his young age, and the crush remained a secret, Eric told the BBC. 

Eric and Elaine lost contact after school. But they just reunited after almost 60 years via Facebook.

“If it hadn’t been for Facebook, we would never have found each other,” Eric Bogliani told the BBC.

“These years we’ve had together and the years we will have together in the future we may have missed. And how could you miss this?” Elaine Bogliani said. 

They just got married in the same school they attended together as kids, which is now a community centre.

This story of love long lost and found again was just what people on the internet needed to brighten their day.

If you were looking for a sign from the universe to hit up your childhood crush, this is it.
