It has been 45 years since the power couple got married in a simple ceremony with a handful of their family members. Bill and Hilary Clinton took to social media to celebrate this momentous occasion with their fans.

Hillary's Instagram post was a photo of the couple from their wedding day, which was somewhat grainy but intimate seeing how Bill held his wife around her waist.

The excitement was tangible as the couple smiled brightly at the camera, with Hillary leaning into her husband while some trees served as their backdrop. She wore a simple white dress with lace and frills while Bill wore a black suit with a white shirt and a polka dot tie. The beautiful caption read:

"Forty-five years. Never a dull moment, and you're still my best friend. Love you, Bill."

Hillary received mixed reactions from her fans, with several referring to their past challenges. A particular journalist, Lisa Ling, congratulated them while pointing out that they had worked hard to endure the trials. She also added that no marriage is perfect.

The former president chose Twitter as his medium, where he posted a more recent picture of the couple in a moment of warmth at what seemed to be an event. The 74-year-old looked down with a shy smile on his face while his wife smiled endearingly at him.

The duo wore blue tones with Bill in a standard suit and blue shirt while Hillary sported a classy blue dress. The former president harnessed the poet in him with a caption that read:

"October 11th was a beautiful day 45 years ago. Still is. The bride was beautiful too. And still is. Happy Anniversary, Hillary. I love you."

The post received similar responses as several pointed to Bill's 12-year affair with Gennifer Flowers while he was the Governor of Arkansas amidst other infidelity speculations.

This seems to be water under the bridge as the 72-year-old shared earlier this year that she is grateful to be married to her husband, especially during her presidential campaign in 2016.

Their third meeting had Bill faking a class registration, which he had done earlier that day. Even though his cover was blown, the two started something special that day and have stayed together ever since.
