What Science Fiction Couple Never Should Have Gotten Together?

Sometimes when a will-the-or-won’t-they couple gets together, it turns out that they shouldn’t have. Which fictional romantic pair would have been better off keeping their relationship platonic?

I admit, when I was a wee little thing, I wanted Worf and Deanna Troi to get together on Star Trek: The Next Generation. After all, they seemed like the perfect mismatched pair: he the gruff warrior and she the gentle counselor. But when the two did date, it was painfully awkward to watch. There’s a good reason that, when Worf and Troi eventually got married, it was to other people.


What about you? Tell us the couple that just makes you shake your head. And, if relevant, provide pictorial evidence of their romantic awfulness.
