Um... did they ever actually... do it?


Does it matter? Sex does not equal true love.

My pick for history's greatest couples are:

John and Yoko...and Paul and Linda

LGQ You are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT about Romeo and Juliette...


Not about the John and Yoko part so much... but Paul and Linda, absolutely.

Perhaps not if some of the things I've heard are true but I don't have any negative feelings toward Yoko, and John did some of his BEST work while he was with her...wrote some of his best songs and became a complete activist.

He also looked genuinely happy in all of his photos.

I agree with what you say. To me, great love comes from balance. I think Yoko influenced John a lot - not that he didn't need to grow through her, but I wonder if that influence didn't give him more of an edge than he would have had normally. And of course, edge can be a good thing... but I think more people would have heard his message if he didn't go out of his way to rub people the wrong way.

I don't think his message is begging to be heard. John Lennon is a permanent part of the vernacular of this society, and most everyone I have talked to is touched by his message and doesn't still have a stick up their ass about a comment made in what- 1965?

Anyway...Nancy and Ronald Reagan.

I'm not talking about the Jesus comment (was that 1965) - anyway, he didn't know Yoko then, so maybe you're right - the edge had always been there - and that Yoko didn't over-influence him in that way.

(real old school) Ulysses and Penelope

James and Dolly Madison

Napoleon and Josephine

....also found this while surfing, interesting....

Below are some famous (and not-so-famous) couples in Medieval and Renaissance history and fiction.

Abelard & Heloise: Real life scholars of 12th-century Paris, Peter Abelard and his student, Heloise, had a torrid affair. Their story is told in your Guide's feature, A Medieval Love Story.

Arthur & Guinevere: The legendary King Arthur and his queen are at the center of a huge corpus of medieval and post-medieval literature.

Boccaccio & Fiammetta: Giovanni Boccaccio was an important 14th-century author. His muse was the lovely Fiammetta, whose true identity is undetermined but who appeared in some of his early works.

Charles Brandon & Mary Tudor: Henry VIII arranged for his sister Mary to wed King Louis XII of France, but she already loved Charles, the 1st Duke of Suffolk. She agreed to wed the much-older Louis on condition that she be allowed to choose her next husband herself. When Louis died shortly after the marriage, Mary secretly wed Suffolk before Henry could embroil her in another political marriage. Henry was furious, but he forgave them after Suffolk paid a hefty fine.
The above couple was suggested by Tracy Kalkwarf. Thanks, Tracy!

El Cid & Ximena: Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar was a notable military leader and the national hero of Spain. He acquired the title "the Cid" ("sir" or "lord") during his lifetime. He really did marry Ximena (or Jimena), the king's niece, but the exact nature of their relationship is obscured in the mists of time and epic.

Clovis & Clotilda: Clovis was the founder of the Merovingian dynasty of Frankish kings. His pious wife Clotilda convinced him to convert to Catholicism, which would prove significant in the future development of France.

Dante & Beatrice: Dante Alighieri is often considered the finest poet of the Middle Ages. His devotion in his poetry to Beatrice made her one of the most celebrated figures in western literature.

Edward IV & Elizabeth Woodville: Fair Edward was attractive and popular with the ladies, and he surprised quite a few people when he married the widowed mother of two boys. Edward's bestowal of court favors on Elizabeth's relatives disrupted his court.

Erec & Enid: The poem Erec et Enid is the earliest extant Arthurian romance by 12th-century poet Chrétien de Troyes. In it, Erec wins a tournament to defend the assertion that his lady is the most beautiful. Later, the two go on a quest to prove to each other their noble qualities.

Etienne de Castel & Christine de Pizan: The time Christine had with her husband was a mere ten years. His death left her in financial straits, and she turned to writing to support herself. Her works included love ballads dedicated to the late Etienne.

Ferdinand & Isabella: The "Catholic Monarchs" of Spain united Castile and Aragon when they married. Together, they overcame civil war, completed the reconquista by defeating the last Moorish holdout of Granada, and sponsored the voyages of Columbus. They also expelled the Jews and began the Spanish Inquisition.

Gareth & Lynette: In the Arthurian tale of Gareth & Lynette, first told by Malory, Gareth proves himself to be chivalrous, even though Lynette heaps scorn upon him.

Sir Gawain & Dame Ragnelle: The story of the "loathly lady" is told in many versions. The most famous involves Gawain, one of Arthur's greatest knights, whom the ugly Dame Ragnelle chooses for her husband, and is told in The Wedding of Sir Gawain and Dame Ragnelle.
