From tear-jerking breakups and steamy lovemaking scenes to whirlwind love affairs and crazy love triangles, some of the greatest relationships that we know of were between fictional characters. Not only have they set the tone for other movie couples, but they have also influenced many of our relationships and the idea of what real romance should be.
For over a century, we have watched some of these couples make outlandish gestures of love, go against the wishes of their family, and forsake everything they know just to be with the ones whom they love.
Was it an instant attraction like Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey from the 50 Shades of Grey chronicles, a slow burn like Tris and Four from the Divergent series, a forbidden love like Rose DeWitt and Jack Dawson from Titanic, a romance that seemed to last for an eternity like Allie Hamilton and Noah Calhoun from The Notebook, or a complete surprise like Ennis Del Mar and Jack Twist from Brokeback Mountain? To find out which of these great couples is most like your relationship, you should try this quiz. Get your significant other to give it a try just to see if you both get the same result! We're not responsible if you don't!
