My hubby and I are celebrating our 11th anniversary today. It has me pondering what makes a great couple.
Thinking about great couples of fiction (any medium), I've come up with a starter list:
Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy (Pride and Prejudice) - my personal fave
Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara (Gone With the Wind) - not a happy ending, but hot stuff
Romeo and Juliet - duh
Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood - I don't even remember the names of the other two gals. Too bad Kingdom of the Crystal Skull wasn't great.
Lloyd Dobler and Diane Court (Say Anything) - such a real depiction of first love
Han Solo and Princess Leah (Star Wars) - ok, so I have a Harrison Ford thing
and so on...
Feel free to add on if you are inspired.
Finally, I'd like to share one of my favorite quotes about love - from the movie Moonstruck:
Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn't know this either, but love don't make things nice - it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren't here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and *die*. The storybooks are (BS). Now I want you to come upstairs with me and *get* in my bed!
