Unforgettable Couples From Page and Screen


Reading + Entertainment

  • A couple holds hands on an outdoor walk

Jennifer, Clemens Mill | February 10, 2022

Sometimes you read about a couple in a book, or you see them on the movie screen and from that first moment you just know they fit, in the most profound way. There is a magnetic pull between them, a locking of the eyes, and a feeling that you get about them that can only be described as magical. Their time together might be fleeting, or it might last for many years, but one thing is for certain, the magic was there, and it lives on.

In honour of Valentine’s Day, we have put together a list of couples from book and screen who had the magic, and whose connections were unforgettable.  

Who is your favourite fictional couple of all time? Let us know in the comments!
