If you sobbed at Nicholas Sparks's The Vow, prepare for even more tears on your next viewing . . . because this really happened. Main characters Leo (Channing Tatum) and Paige (Rachel McAdams) were inspired by Krickitt and Kim Carpenter. Two months after their wedding, the couple got into a horrific car accident that left wife Krickett without the past two years of her memory. They stuck it out, and as of 2014, they're still together.
