Top Ten Tuesday: Literary couples that would survive the real world

“Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!”

This week’s topic is in honor of Jamie’s wedding on the 17th (Congratulations Jamie!): the top ten book romances that would survive in the real world. Here are my choices…

10. Sayuri and the Chairman (Memoirs of a Geisha)

9. Kate Wilson and Julian Laurence (Overseas)

8. Wesley and Princess Buttercup (The Princess Bride)

7. Ada and W.P. Inman (Charles Frazier)

6. Aragorn and Arwen (J.R.R. Tolkein)

5. Clare and Henry (The Time Traveler’s Wife)

4. Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont (All Souls Trilogy)

3. Claire Beachamp Randall Fraser and Jamie Fraser (Outlander series)

2. Jane Eyre and Edward Fairfax Rochester (Jane Eyre)

1. Anne and Captain Wentworth (Persuasion)

Who would you’ve have included? Did I miss anyone obvious (aside from Darcy and Elizabeth – I figured one Jane Austen was enough)?
