One element of their romance that has always drawn criticism is Priscilla's age when they started dating. Priscilla was 14 and Elvis was 24. They married seven years later.

Priscilla said that even though she was 14 years old at the time, she felt that her life journey had made her more mature than that number. In Priscilla's eyes, the King of Rock and Roll has a sluggish and loving heart.

"That's the attraction. And people think, 'Oh, that's sex, this is it.' Not at all. I never had sex with him. She is very kind, very gentle, very affectionate. But he also respected the fact that I was only 14 years old. We think more and think and that's our relationship," Priscilla said.
