Married couples are often pretty rare to find in anime. Most series focus on young love and high school crushes, and most end long before the main couple can even consider getting hitched. However, every now and then, anime gives fans something a little more mature. From pre-established married couples to relationships that take their love to the next level, anime has many iconic marriages.
