When Elvis was at the peak of his fame, many women dreamed of marrying the King of Rock. The woman who ended up marrying him, Priscilla Presley, has opened up and shared what it was really like. While the two were deeply in love, being married to Elvis was no walk in the park. Priscilla has shared the difficult moments that eventually led to their tumultuous divorce. This is their story.
She Was 14 Years Old
Priscilla’s family move to Germany after her stepfather, a member of the US Air Force, was transferred there. Elvis was in the Army at the time, and he was in Germany as well. In September 1959, he met Priscilla at a party held at his rental house. She was just 14 at the time, but she made quite the impression on Elvis. He admitted that he was acting “awkward” and “embarrassed” while he was around her.
He Kept In Touch With Her
After meeting at the party, Elvis was absolutely infatuated with her and they met often until he left Germany in 1960. She was convinced that after his departure their romance would end and she would likely never see him again. However, he kept in touch with her and they spoke on the phone, though they wouldn’t see each other again until the summer of 1962. Priscilla shared: “Elvis kept in touch with me as I wrote him letters as well for two years, so my parents saw that there was something that was going on and it was more than just friendship.”
