Movies and the media have a habit of presenting us with couples who, for the reader, are insatiable. They are unique, energizing and exciting; they are in the relationship that we all aspire to be in. As we all know, however, some movie and media romances are best left out. Here are some examples of couples in movies who probably should have said goodbye before the credits started rolling.

Bill et Jo, Twister
Great movie, but if you expect this romance to last, you have more hope than me. This romance is a real car accident. They divorce, go through a crisis and reunite. If you ask me, resolving a marriage broken by the presence of a crisis sounds exactly like the kind of temporary fix that will more or less never come to fruition. If there was a Twister 2, they would have to be split to make it believable!
Stefan et Caroline, Vampire Diaries
Although falling in love with our closest friend is a common trope, it rarely works for people. In this movie, the whole falling in love angle seems like a coincidence. Call us austere, but things like this rarely work out that way. They lack the spark and chemistry that one would expect from such a relationship, and it feels like something the two are more or less tuned for, as opposed to real major plutonic love.

Sandy and Danny, fat
OK, so they could be considered one of the greatest movie romances of all time, but let’s be clear: it would never work in reality. When you look closer, Danny and Sandy aren’t made for each other. Sandy essentially transforms into a new person to suit Danny, and red flags go off more or less throughout the movie. It’s a great watch, but it’s not a romance that would happily last forever!
What do you think are the most egregious examples when it comes to watching movie romances? Who do you think would have ever lasted longer than it took for the credits to roll? We can think of a few more, but what about you?
