Some of these are just adorable.
Athletes are just like us: they go to work, they shop for groceries, they have relationships. Well, with the one tiny difference that they make millions of dollars a year for playing a game (that's a bit of a switch). Still, many of them, just like us, find love at a young age, and ultimately get married to their childhood sweethearts. And when it comes to sports stars finding love at a young age, it's no less adorable than it is with the rest of us. Sure, some of these (hi, Steph Curry) you've probably heard of, but there's a whole bunch more we bet you haven't. Which New York Yankees legend, one of the best all-time at his position, met the love of his life at a young age? Which French soccer star met his wife before he entered his second decade? Which Colorado Avalanche Hall of Famer got together with his future wife before the pair could legally drink in America? How about which legendary NFL quarterback met his future spouse just before starting his storied college career (still counts)?
Here are 31 superstar athletes who did found the love of their lives long before they were stars in their respective athletic fields.
