Each new year brings with it a fresh set of cultural events, national news stories, award-winning films and albums, celebrity marriages and divorces, and other noteworthy happenings that go on to define it in our collective memory.
With a new reunion season fast approaching, we decided to jog that collective memory with a roundup of TIME magazine’s “Person of the Year” and power couples from graduations past.
Some people will likely be more familiar than others. Some you may have forgotten altogether. All played an important part in defining their shared moment in history.
