People Share Which Fictional Couples Should Haven Never Gotten Together

So many fictional couples end up in tragedy, it's almost hard to keep track. But many shouldn't have gotten together in the first place.

In life, sometimes there's wrong and "technically not wrong" - and the difference can often be hilarious.
