Shakespeare Couples, Ranked from Most to Least Dysfunctional

#1: Beatrice and Benedick

And finally, our winners, from Much Ado About Nothing! A couple with real charisma and the ability to not instantly profess undying love for one another the moment they set eyes on each other—a trait that afflicts so many characters in classic literature (lookin' at you, Claudio and Hero). Well suited, evenly matched, and able to keep an audience captive without tragic plot twists and overdrawn descriptions of their affections.  Adorable.
