15 Fictional Couples Who Should Have Never Gotten Together


Everyone loves a good fictional romance. Television shows will string out a romance over several seasons just for that “will they, won’t they” tension that viewers can’t resist. But have you ever stopped to question whether or not these characters are even a good fit for each other?

These AskReddit users opened up to reveal what fictional couples they think should never have gotten together.

1. Right on the money

“Kermit and Miss Piggy. He has depth and is kind and observant and she’s a superficial, abusive narcissist. And they’re interspecies so reproduction is impossible/ high stakes.”

2. ’70s

“Jackie and Fez. So f*cking awkward! She should have stayed with Hyde.”

3. Not a good match

“Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan.”

4. Sad face…

“Romeo and Juliet… Stupid kids.”

5. Okay…

“Zeus and most of the animals he ends up banging.”

6. Gettin’ historical

“Paris and Helen of Troy!”

7. GOT

“The Lannisters.”

8. These two…

“Bird Person and Tammy.

It was a huge mistake. F*ck Tammy.”

9. Hey o!

“Oedipus and his mom.”

10. Toxic

“House and Cuddy.”

11. Not a good combo

“Dexter and Deb.”

12. Uh uh

“Buffy and Riley. Ugh.”

13. Strange…

“Jonathan and Nancy from Stranger Things. I was happy they didn’t force the ”pretty girl leaves supposed douchebag boyfriend for the socially awkward boy” trope during the first season but they f*cked it up in the subsequent season.

Steve is the man.”

14. An interesting choice

“Anakin and Padme.”

15. Cringeworthy

“Carrie and Mr. Big.”
