Move over Disney princesses, there is no greater love story for Selena Quintanilla fans than that of their queen and Chris Perez. The couple loved each other to the point that they ran away and eloped after a few months of dating when Selena's father Abraham Quintanilla found out about their secret relationship and wanted it to end, stat. It doesn't get any more romantic than that!

So it should come as no surprise that when Perez shared a picture of their marriage license on what would have been their 25th anniversary, it was time to grab box of tissues.

Chris shared that "it's hard to believe that today marks 25 years since Selena and I decided that the only way to be together... was to run away and get married (at 20 and 22 years old) in secret. What a rollercoaster ride THAT day was." Then fans quickly left over 1,000 comments sharing their feelings too that took us on a wild emotional ride.

Not knowing them personally doesn't make moments like this any less touching.

Perez will ALWAYS have a special place in the hearts of Selena fans.

No matter what drama he might still be going through with the Quintanilla family — like getting sued by Abraham to stop the TV show of their love story from getting made — they will still hold him down.


There are those who believe that Perez and Selena will be together again... sweet day.

Their story inspired others to fight for true love...

...even if it meant running away to elope, too.

How Perez dealt with the tragic ending of their love story has helped heal others.

Selena and Perez are our modern-day Jack and Rose.

Their love will truly live forever.
