Micheline lived in North Africa with her kids and Sean was doing his thing in Hollywood. But they were so obsessed with each other that they found a way:

In the early days, it was difficult for us to see each other. She was still living in North Africa with her children. We were in separate queues coming off different flights. There was a partition and underneath I saw these feet. I immediately recognized them and tried to get through to see her.

Amazing fact: For years, the couple did not even speak the same language, but Micheline says they had no problem communicating because their body language helped them.

Now they have been together for more than 40 years and counting!

Seans says:

Micheline is an amazing woman. She is the love of my life.
