This Couple Who First Met In Preschool 20 Years Ago Just Got Married, And The Internet Just Can’t Handle It

Preschool crushes are seriously the cutest, but, unfortunately, they usually end after preschool. But not in this romantic story.

Laura Scheel and Matt Grodsky fell in love at first sight when they were little kiddos in preschool. One of Matt’s earliest childhood memories dates way back to preschool with Laura. “One of my very first memories is of being three years old and standing up in front of my pre-school class, declaring that I would marry her someday,” Matt wrote. But after preschool, the lovebirds lost touch up until freshman year in high school when they reconnected through a mutual friend. Laura and Matt hit it off, and within two weeks they were high school sweethearts. Now, as years have passed in their long-term relationship, Matt finally decided to “stay true to [his] preschool pledge,” and the pair got married in December 2016. It’s like a real-life fairytale love story!

Scroll down to check the cute couple and their true love story and be prepared for a serious cuteness overload!

In May 2015, Matt decided to pop the question at the place it all began…their preschool classroom

“The whole car ride to the preschool she kept asking me why I seemed anxious,” Matt said

“I kept checking my pocket when she wasn’t looking to make sure the ring was still there”
