Lists and articles abound on the best or cutest couples to exist. Everyone has heard of how legendary Romeo and Juliet are, along with Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice and Jack and Rose from Titanic. While these couples are noteworthy, I’m bringing you a collection of some other notable couples who you should most definitely be taking cues from.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z

Beyonce and Jay Z

Ladies want to be Queen Bey and men want to be Mr. Carter. For good reason too, since both are wildly successful. Each has a thriving music career that they dedicate much of their time and energy into preserving. The same should go for you; even though you fall in love with someone, it doesn’t mean the rest of your life should be put on hold. You and your lover should be able to pursue your interests and passions all the while receiving support and encouragement from each other. In that way you’ll feel personally satisfied and be able to retain that special part of you that set you apart from everyone else in the first place. And what could be sexier than having the person you love cheering you on in your ambitions?

Sally and Jack Skellington

Sally and Jack Skellington

Halloween is everyday with this couple. Literally, because they live in Halloween Town. In Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, we’re introduced to Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King, and Sally the Ragdoll. Both are very unique characters, and when they finally profess their love for one another they keep that quality of individuality. When someone falls in love with you, you shouldn’t be expected to change anything about yourself. That’s the beauty of this couple—even though they become a pair, they’re still very distinct individuals with specific behaviors and talents. You should never be forced to change for someone you love. Rather, that person should celebrate and love every unique quality you possess.

Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo

Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo

At the beginning of the Game of Thrones series, Daenerys and Khal Drogo are wed in an alliance that leaves Daenerys feeling out-of-place and away from home. Their affection for each other begins to bloom though, and they find themselves genuinely in love with one another. One of the ways they show this love is through protecting one another. When a threat is made on Daenerys’s life, Khal Drogo declares war on her attackers and swears to gain for her her rightful throne. Likewise, when Khal Drogo is lethally cut with a blade near the heart, Daenerys makes an unlikely alliance to heal him and stays by his side as he fights death. This couple does whatever they can to ensure safety for the other. Nothing quite says “I love you” like protecting the one you love from harm.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick

Not everything about this reality television couple is admirable, but through watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians one notices that Kourtney and Scott are kind of bizarre. They have a habit of acting like a couple of weirdos when with each other. However, you and your significant other should follow suit. Life is serious a great deal of the time, but if you don’t have someone you can unwind with things may become unbearable. You should be able to act like a goof with your lover and have a good time together. It’ll make dealing with more difficult stuff a lot easier on you both.

Morticia and Gomez Addams

Morticia and Gomez Addams

I can guarantee that every strange, spooky couple in existence idolizes this pairing. Even if you don’t don fifty shades of black on a daily basis or have a cemetery in your backyard, you can find something about the Addams to love. And that particular something in this case is how crazy they are for each other. Each has eyes for no one but the other and they show massive amounts of affection toward each other. Even though they also have two children and have been married for years, they’re still wildly in love with one another. That’s real love, and it’s so admirable.

Zelda and Link

Zelda and Link

Are they just friends or are they also lovers? Fans of the video games can debate in circles over whether or not the two of them are in love, but all fans can agree on the fact that Zelda and Link are very good friends. And that’s exactly what you and your lover should be. Romance and sexual compatibility are important, but what could be better than the love of your life also being your good friend? If you can’t trust someone to be your friend, it’s probably best that you don’t trust that person with your heart. Take a page out of Zelda and Link’s book.

These are only a few examples, but every couple in existence, whether its family or someone from your favorite book or movie, has something to teach us about how to love one another. In fact, it’s probably for the best to not take love cues from Romeo and Juliet.

Love shouldn’t involve anybody killing themselves for the other. But if I’m wrong, argue your case in the comments below! And tell us about any other couple you find to be particularly inspiring.
