17 Movie Couples With Super Complicated Relationships

by: on | in Movies | 24 Comments


Most of the time when people watch a couple in a movie they wish they could have something that special. However, not every on-screen couple has people envious of their relationship.

For instance, Edward and Bella from The Twilight Saga are just about the most messed up couple out there. Not only does he want to kill her (since he's ya know, a vampire), but he's insanely protective, and she is far too willing to give up her entire life for him.

There are definitely other movie twosomes that have had their fair share of relationship struggles, so we thought we'd put them together for your viewing pleasure. To see seven movie couples with complicated relationships, click through the gallery below! Which couple do you think has it the worst? Sound off in the comments!

  • Person idk

    You can’t even use the Mean Girls one.

    Not only did the Beast kidnap Belle, but she was completely into bestiality.

  • Senbou
