John Lennon and Yoko Ono were married 47 years ago this week, and most would agree that John and Yoko's love (even with "the lost weekend") was one of rock's great love stories.
Fortunately, John and Yoko aren't the only couple with an incredible story. Here's a selection of some of our favorite rock couples and some fun facts about their own love story.
John and Yoko were married in a very low-key ten minute ceremony in the British Consulate Office in Gibraltar. Of course, they decided to save the real scene for their honeymoon during their infamous "Bed-In." Photo by Koichi Kamoshida/Getty Images

Dee and Suzette Snider (Married in October 1981): There was a bit of a problem when Dee first met Suzette. He was 21; she was 15. They met in a club, which, due to her age, she snuck into. Being the stand-up guy that he is, Dee talked to her parents, and after A LOT of convincing, they were eventually allowed to date. Photo by Robin Marchant/Getty Images
