7 of 21
While in college, Cheryl got married. Her husband, Paul, was 21. Cheryl was 19. "We'd married so young, so uncharacteristically, even our parents asked why we couldn't just live together," she says.

One month later, when she turned 20, Cheryl and Paul moved to Ireland, where this photo was taken. "We rented a flat in Galway and then changed our minds and moved to Dublin and got a matching pair of restaurant jobs—he in a pizza place, me in a vegetarian café. Four months later we moved to London and walked the streets so destitute we searched for coins on the sidewalk." Shortly after, they moved home.
