Shakespeare Couples, Ranked from Most to Least Dysfunctional



#5: Bassanio & Portia

This The Merchant of Venice couple earns a decidedly mid-table finish because they seem to enjoy a trial-free romance, by Shakespeare’s standards. The adventurous and intelligent Portia meets the likable Bassanio and they instantly click. Their good fortune continues as their close friends Gratiano and Nerissa also fall for one another, opening up all kinds of double dating options.
