(Ponders deeply) Right, this is a bit unorthodox, but Modesty Blaise and Willie Garvin from the Modesty Blaise books. They're not technically a couple but they are friends, comrades in arms and partners in crime.

The lady blackbird, we’ve decided is the heroine of the story. Focussed and determined, she’s built a nest in the roof of our derelict shed.
