Romantic Couples Through the Ages

8 of 14

Lucille Ball and Ricky Ricardo

Lucille Ball described her initial meeting with Ricky Ricardo this way: "It wasn't love at first sight. It took a full five minutes." Their obvious and overwhelming chemistry propelled this talented team into both matrimony and fame. However, their passion proved to be stormy as well as sweet – they parted and reconciled numerous times. Although they finally divorced in 1960, Lucy conceded that Ricky was the love of her life and said she still missed him. This duo is particularly noted for breaching social taboos, by playing the first on-screen interracial couple in America.
