Sweet Literary Couples

Hello ladies, today is my third and final day of posting here at the wonderful DIK blog for now. Today I'd like to discuss Sweet Literary Couples. Who are your favorites? Here's a few of mine:

Westley and Buttercup, The Princess Bride

Westley: Hear this now: I will always come for you.

Buttercup: But how can you be sure?

Westley: This is true love - you think this happens every day?

Rhett & Scarlett, Gone With the Wind

"And you do look gorgeous when you are mad. I'll squeeze you again-there-just to see if you will really get mad. You have no idea how charming you were that day at Twelve Oaks when you were mad and throwing things."
"Oh please, won't you forget that?"
"No, it is one of my most priceless memories-a delicately nurtured Southern belle with her Irish up-You are very Irish, you know."

Darcy and Elizabeth, Pride & Prejudice

"If you will thank me," he replied, "let it be for yourself alone. That the wish of giving happiness to you might add force to the other inducements which led me on, I shall not attempt to deny. But your family owe me nothing. Much as I respect them, I believe I thought only of you."

I adore Westley and Buttercup, truly love them.

I can't think of others off the top of my head though. Need to think and get back to you! lol

Ditto to what Tracy said, and those pictures are just divine.

One of my other fave couples are Roarke and Eve. I know some people are now finding them series a bit tired, but I still love them at book 20gazillion. :)
