Wow! That's a tough question. Most of my favorite characters aren't in a relationship, in part because most of what I read is crime fiction.

If I had to choose, I would go with Sookie Stackhouse and Eric Northman from Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire series. (less)

“Your life is an occasion. Rise to it.”
Suzanne Weyn, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium

Suzanne Weyn
“When King Lear dies in act five, do you know what Shakespeare has written? He has written, 'He dies.' No more. No fanfare, no metaphor, no brilliant final words. The culmination of the most influential piece of dramatic literature is, 'He dies.' Now I am not asking you to be happy at my leaving but all I ask you to do is to turn the page and let the next story begin.
-- Mr. Magorium”
