Your maxTV Heart Throb Couples

It's the month of love and what better way to celebrate than taking a look back at the most iconic rom-com duos of all time.

There’s something to be said about the warm and fuzzy feeling you get watching two characters fall madly in love. The giddiness, the first kiss, and the happy ending (well… sometimes) can thaw the coldest of hearts and maybe even turn you into a believer in true love.

When you think of swoon-worthy rom-com couples, who do you think of? There’s been so many over the years that have pulled on our heart strings in different ways, but we’re pretty sure we rounded up some of the top rom-com couples to ever grace our screens. And the best part? You can watch their love stories over and over again On Demand with maxTV and maxTV Stream!
