“Name a favorite literary couple and tell me why they are a favorite. If you cannot choose just one, that is okay too. Name as many as you like-sometimes narrowing down a list can be extremely difficult and painful. Or maybe that’s just me.”
Jane Austen’s couples: My favorite books, in no particular order, are Emma, Persuasion, and Pride and Prejudice. You’ve got the “life-long friends who fall in love” (Emma), the “second chance couple” (Persuasion), and “bad first impressions” (Pride and Prejudice).
The Harry Potter series: I’ve read some of the other responses and I concur with those who list Ron and Hermione as a favorite. My mother is listing to the books, on a continual cycle, as she works on a large needlepoint project. I sometimes help her, so I’ve only been hearing parts. No matter how dense and stubborn Ron is, Hermione still seems to love him. I also agree with those who listed Molly and Arthur Weasley — but then again, I think the Weasleys are one of the best families in books.
Han and Leia: the Expanded Universe has put this couple through some ringers. Yet, they’re still together.
