Thirteen Things about Great Romantic Couples

Here are some of my favorite romantic couples:

1. Adam & Eve – They got everything rolling for us, at least after Lilith left the scene.

2. Mark Anthony & Cleopatra – What woman wouldn't want a man to die in her arms? (Some men more than others).

3. George & Mary Bailey – We should all have such a wonderful life.

4. George Burns & Gracie Allen – In the early 1940s, during the height of their popularity, George Burns had a brief extra-marital affair. He apologized to Gracie by giving her a new coffee table, and nothing more was said about it. However, years later, when Gracie was serving coffee to a friend in their living room, George overheard her say, "You know, I wish George would have another affair. I really need a new coffee table."

5. Rhett & Scarlet Butler – Okay. The relationship didn't last, but it certainly had passion.

6. Ward & June Cleaver – Ward always brought home the bacon and June always cooked it. Who could have wanted more in 1950s America?

7. Herman and Lily Munster – A truly happy goth couple.

8. Leonard & Mae Hickenbottom – My grandparents. They had six children, with two of them dying in infancy. As my Gram used to say, "We must have done something right. We were married over 56 years."

9. John & Yoko Lennon – We should all have a prolonged "bed-in" every now and then.

10. Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward – Hollywood marriages are known for lasting for periods of weeks or months, but this one is just short of 50 years so far.

11. Homer & Marge Simpson – Soulmate love in animated form: Homer tells Marge that with her, he feels a "profound mystical connection."

12. Darin & Samantha Stevens – True love with a touch of magic.

13. Hume Cronin & Jessica Tandy – Another Hollywood marriage of duration - 52 years.

Who are some of your favorite romantic couples? How have they inspired you?
