Yesterday, I talked about my crushes, including some of my fictional crushes. Well, today, I’m going to talk about which fictional couples I think are great together and good examples of real and fictional love.
Lily and Marshall from How I Met Your Mother sitcom
These two are super cute. They met each other freshman year of college, fell in love, and then seven years later, got married. They were completely monogamous the entire time! Marshall doesn’t even think about other women (and is often teased about that). Now, they aren’t a perfect couple–they definitely have their spats, and sometimes run away from each other and their issues. But, they always find a way to come back stronger than before.
Faile and Perrin from Wheel of Time series
Faile is basically the feminist of the series! She is a bounty/treasure hunter and doesn’t let men tell her how to do anything. She is very take charge. Perrin, on the other hand, is very soft-spoken. He is big, strong, and has wolf senses/powers. He is unsure sometimes, and humble. Faile basically wears the pants of the relationship. She loves her “big lug” and helps him take control of his potential. When Faile was captured, Perrin did everything to get her back. He finally found his backbone because of her.
Starfire and Robin from Teen Titans (not to be confused with the stupid new Teen Titans Go!)
Through the entire series, the animators tease the romance between Robin and Starfire. They care for each other deeply. When Robin was blackmailed by Slade to do his dirty work, he would fight the rest of the Teen Titans, but not Starfire. Starfire always trusted in Robin. Finally, they got together at the very end of the series ending movie, Teen Titans in Tokyo.
Elinor and Edward from Sense and Sensibility
I just love both of their personalities. Elinor is very rational and cares deeply for her sisters and mother. She supports them and always thinks ahead. She is also very humble and doesn’t dare to admit her feelings for Edward. He is shy, but affectionate and passionate. I love how their relationship blooms from friendship to admiration to respect and love.
Belle and the Beast (Prince Adam) from Beauty and the Beast
Belle is my absolute favorite Disney princess. She is sees the potential in the beast–his insecurities, his underlying kindness. Beast loves Belle desperately and will do anything to protect her. I love all of their portrayals, the classical Disney animated movie, their portrayal in the TV series Once Upon a Time, and their characters in the video game series Kingdom Hearts. I can’t wait to see the new movie this year!!!
This is by no means a final list. There are many other fictional couples I love and emulate.
Which fictional couples are your favorites? Why?
