It’s hard to deny the age-old truth about relationships: There are people who are destined to be together despite all odds, while on the other side of the spectrum, there are couples are destined to eventually crash and burn.

Some relationships we are part of can actually make us better human beings, and that motivates us to strive to become the best possible versions of ourselves. And conversely, there are relationships that turn us into poisonous people we never imagined we could become. Often, people say that they cannot choose who they’ll fall in love with, and there’s a lot of truth in that.

Surely, there are some couples that end up together even though it looks like it would never work out.
