The other day I asked Dustin who he thought was the most romantic couple in literature or in history? (Besides us of course ;) )
And now I'm asking you, who do you think is the most romantic couple?
I'm a sucker for a good romantic story, so I'm a big fan of Jane Austen and since I have been reading some old classics I have read some pretty good romances that are hard to beat.
Well, to be honest I can't remember what Dustin said, I'm not sure if he even gave me answer, I think it became more of a discussion since, thanks to me, he knows a lot of the romantic stories, that we could actually talk about some of them together; he is good man for watching all these movies with me.
As for me? I honestly have hard time picking just one, but my first two that popped in my head was Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester or Emma and Joseph Smith.
Last year I read Jane Eyre and LOVED it, if you haven't read it you are missing out!
I really felt the characters were interesting and dynamic and felt more real than most characters in literature. I won't say any more because I don't want to spoil it for people who haven't read it, but it's probably my favorite book.
Then Emma's and Joseph's story has always melted my heart. Their marriage was far from easy and not always glorious, but they were together through the thick and thin. I can't imagine what Emma went through with having child after child dying and seeing your husband get tarred and feathered and later killed. I really fell like they had a good marriage and Joseph became a great prophet that he was because of Emma being by his side.
Anyway I would like to know who you think is the most romantic couple, and why?
Some other couples we talked about were:
Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe (Anne of Green Gables)
Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcey (Pride and Prejudice)
Emma and Mr Knightly (Emma)
Heathcliff and Cathy Earnshaw (Wuthering Heights)
Margarete and Scarlett Pimpernel (Scarlett Pimpernel)
And the painting on top I just did for fun, as I have mentioned before I've been working on my painting skills.
