And here are some of my favorite young couples.
Romeo and Juliet: What can I even say? Despite the fact that they both die in the end, this story is timeless because this is the kind of crazy, burning, all-consuming love everyone wants to feel at least once in their lifetime.
Jack and Rose, Titanic: I always hate the fact that Jack died in the end. I also know the movie wouldn't have been nearly as good if he hadn't. haha Still, it always seemed like maybe he should've at least looked for his own board to float on? Just a thought. At any rate, I still love this classic rich "spoiled" girl meets poor "salt-of-the-earth" guy and they both realize that love can overcome any difference.
Allie and Noah, The Notebook: This is a story about the amazing strength of love and it's ability to transcend both distance and time. Allie and Noah will always be the most romantic couple I've ever seen.
Landon and Jaime, A Walk to Remember: I know this movie isn't as big as the first three I named, but it's a beautiful story. Jaime teaches Landon to believe in himself and, in return, he teaches her how to live. It's another "troubled-boy-saved-by-the-love-of-a-good-girl" story, but with a heartbreaking twist. If you're going to watch it, make sure you have your tissues ready.
Jamal and Latika, Slumdog Millionare: His whole life, Jamal never forgets Latika. She inspires so much of what he does. His unwavering devotion to her makes this couple really stand out as one of my favorite young loves.
Ron and Hermione, Harry Potter Come on. You guys knew you weren't getting through this without a HP reference. Haha. And I know Ron and Hermione aren't from some awe-inspiring romantic movie but that is exactly why I love them as a couple. Their love is like a little plant that grows amid this wild jungle of epic events. It develops slowly but, by the end, is even stronger for how well they know both the good and the bad in each other.
Which couple do you love most? Who would you have included?
