Through thick and thin and the rules of the modern world, these couples would still thrive.
Whether it's a hilarious courtship or childhood friendship-turned-romance, many rom-com couples are so endearing and relatable we can't help but believe they'd still be together in the present day.
Here are six movie couples whose love would definitely stand the test of time and the changes it brings.
1. Andie and Ben — How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)
Despite their initial hidden motives, the genuine love between advice columnist Andie Anderson and advertising executive Benjamin Barry won out.
There is no doubt that Andie and Ben's fiery chemistry, perfectly captured by Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, and their ability to see past their initial misunderstandings would have withstood the trials and tribulations of the modern dating world.
2. Jenna and Matt — 13 Going on 30 (2004)
Jenna's magical transformation from 13 to 30 allowed her to see her life and her childhood friend Matt from a different perspective. Throughout the movie, we witnessed their friendship grow into something deeper and more meaningful, something that seems to have always been "meant to be."
The connection between Jenna and Matt, their playful and quirky personalities, and unwavering support for each other is the ultimate definition of "till death do them part."
3. Rosie and Alex — Love, Rosie (2014)
This British romance tells the story of lifelong friends Rosie Dunne and Alex Stewart, whose friendship and pure love for one another has endured life's twists and turns, including long distance.
Their undeniable bond and unwavering loyalty make Rosie and Alex's enduring love a reminder that sometimes true love is right in front of you, and all you have to do is open your heart to it.
4. Jonathan and Sara — Serendipity (2001)
Jonathan and Sara's love story proves that some things are meant to be, even if it takes years for them to fully blossom. In a world where technology often hinders real connections, Jonathan and Sara's belief in destiny and their love of playing with it would be a great addition to their daily routine and will never make them feel bored.
5. Josh and Cher — Clueless (1995)
The iconic pairing of Cher Horowitz and Josh Lucas initially seemed unlikely due to their differences, but ultimately blossomed into something beautiful. Now, even though Josh and Cher's relationship could be blamed for the age gap and step-sibling trope, it would undoubtedly thrive because these two don't need anyone's blessing to play on each other's nerves forever.
6. Mia and Nicholas — The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement (2004)
The love story of Mia Thermopolis and Nicholas Devereaux may have faced its fair share of royal complications but their chemistry and their shared sense of duty definitely overcame the obstacles.
Now, when balancing personal desires with public responsibilities is a common thing, Mia and Nicholas would still make a perfect royal couple, able to rule Genovia and have a family of their own at the same time.
