(Newser) – During their third-grade play in 1938, George Raynes played Prince Charming and Carol Harris was Sleeping Beauty. He wasn't supposed to really kiss her, but "I laid a big wet one on her," the now 83-year-old Raynes tells CBC of New Brunswick. No young romance bloomed at the time, but 75 years later, the Saint John residents have gotten married. Raynes is a widower who raised a family, and Harris never married. But they did stay in touch over the years, and now "I can't help but think … that my prince from Grade 3 has finally come home to stay," says Harris.
