BTT: Favorite Literary Couple

Name a favorite literary couple and tell me why they are a favorite.

I have a few favorites. One is Jo and Professor Bhaer from the Little Women series. I learned a lot about raising boys from them. I also really like Anne and Gilbert from the Anne of Green Gables series, they show you that it is okay to love your best friend. Edward and Bella from Twilight are just fun and romantic, even if they aren't realistic. And, Clark and Marty from the Love Comes Softly series are such a strong sweet couple. They show you how love can heal all wounds and they learn to love and depend on each other is such a sweet way.
