So many fictional couples end up in tragedy, it's almost hard to keep track. But many shouldn't have gotten together in the first place.

Take Romeo & Juliet, for example - two teenagers who killed themselves because their parents disapproved of their relationship. Really? Go on Maury. Or Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidallah - they had to have known it wasn't going to end well.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.
