Talk about young love! Former President Bill Clinton and wife, Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State and current Democratic presidential candidate, revealed their journey of their love, wedding and marriage through the ages in a series of five vintage photos. With a love story dating back more than 30 years, it's no surprise that this power couple continues to make influential strides in politics, and in marriage.

After first locking eyes at Yale Law School back in 1971, a young Hillary Rodham, pre-presidential candidate days, approached Bill Clinton outside of their school library with a confidence that has followed her throughout her career. "I was studying in the library, and Bill was standing out in the hall talking to another student — I noticed that he kept looking over at me. He had been doing a lot of that. So I stood up from the desk, walked over to him and said, "If you're going to keep looking at me, and I'm going to keep looking back, we might as well be introduced. I'm Hillary Rodham. 'That was it," Hillary stated on her campaign website.

A photo taken shortly after their first meeting in the spring of 1971, shows a very 1970s-looking Bill, sideburns and all, standing next to an equally as hip Hillary, decked out in round sunglasses and, a blonde shoulder length haircut.

From that moment forward, Hillary and Bill became the powerful duo that they are today! A black and white photo of the pair shows them during their mock trial team days, followed by a sepia toned image of the twosome playing volleyball in 1975.

Who knew that it took Bill three times to ask his, now-wife, Hillary, to marry him before she said "yes!"

Hillary's bohemian chic wedding dress is almost as infectious as her beaming smile while standing next to her newlywed husband, Bill. "I actually turned him down twice when he asked me to marry him. He asked me in England on a trip after law school graduation. I said, you know, I can't say yes. I feel too badly. And then about a year later he asked me again, and I said no. He said I'm not going to ask you again until you're ready to say yes," Hillary remarked about her numerous proposals. Looks like she finally did!

Flash forward to July 31, 2010 when another famous Clinton made their way down the aisle: the pair's only daughter, Chelsea Clinton, married longtime beau, Marc Mezvinksy in a 400 guest, New York ceremony, according to People . The influential bride wore a stunning beaded Vera Wang gown complemented by a cascading tulle veil. A little bit of a different look than her mom's wedding ensemble!
