If you've ever sat in your Grandma's living room and listened to her recount the story of how your Grandpa Bill first asked her on a date, you'll know how special these love stories are to a family's heritage. There aren't many more tales that could compete with how your Pop Pop proposed to your Nana, and there isn't a dry eye in the room when a couple who's reached 50+ years of marriage tells you that it's been the best ride of their life. In appreciation and fascination of these beautiful, generational stories, we sat down with a few of our favorite Southern grandparents to hear their own love stories. It's a privilege to share the moments and memories that have built up years of tradition, heritage, and legacy – and you'll want to grab the whole family to watch these Southerners tell their stories. Tell us – how did your grandfather meet your grandmother?

He brought me his grandmothers ring. 70 And he got all mony and said yes. [LAUGH] He can't quite get it out and I think I finally said, are you asking me to marry you?
