21 Beloved Fictional Couples Who Actually Suck

21 Beloved Fictional Couples Who Actually Suck

If you consume any kind of narrative media with romantic plot lines — and you have a heart — you probably have a fictional couple who represents your endgame. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. Morticia and Gomez. Luke and Lorel— actually, he was damn near verbally abusive to her. Buffy and Ang— okay, he was 200 years older than her, that’s pretty weird. Harley and Jok— why are we even starting that sentence?

It turns out that a lot of fictional couples are toxic as hell. Just because their scenes make a good YouTube montage set to an emo song from 2003 or their story is ripe for fanfic doesn’t necessarily mean a relationship is worth emulating, and a lot of you need to hear that. That’s why, when user Dragonball_Z137 asked r/AskReddit, “What are some fictional couples everybody loves that are actually toxic?” Reddit could basically recite the entire Spirit Halloween couples section

But don’t worry: They’ll never take Morticia and Gomez away from us.
