You Can’t Have One Without the Other

(Well… you can. But, two is better than one!)

Partnerships have been around since the dawn of time. Adam and Eve kicked it off in the Garden of Eden, and from forth the tree of life sprang many more illustrious couples: Romeo and Juliet, Tristan and Isolde, Bonnie & Clyde, Burton and Taylor, Edward and Bella… just to name a few. We’re not meant to walk the earth alone, and having a partner by our side to assist with life’s ups and downs is really what it’s all about. Our mates are our mirrors, the ones chosen to help us see ourselves better so that we may flourish as individuals; And in turn, we aid in our partner’s growth, shining a light right back on them. Being with your other half can be arduous sometimes, especially when two worlds collide; but when love finds a place in the heart, finding a way to stay together is a worthwhile journey. In honor of the “month of love”, let’s take a look at some dynamic duos that have reminded us all just what possibilities lie ahead when we take the road less traveled alone.

Even though the movie premiered eighty years ago, the story couldn’t be more relevant. While we might feel sorry for Scarlett “throwing away happiness with both hands”, the true moment of personal epiphany began when her soul mate walked out the door never to be seen again. At least not in this volume.

All hail the king and queen of food pairings! PB & J, essentially a poor man’s meal, has no equal in the culinary world when it comes to most popular two-somes.

The eponymous phrase, “they got on like peanut butter and jelly” really sums up this badass merger of a scrumptious anytime sandwich.
