I suppose one of the famous couples wrong for each other is Lydia and Wickham from Pride & Prejudice. I’m watching the 1995 miniseries (like I do every summer) and it certainly brings home the fact that just because two characters have been caught together, they should not be forced to marry. It’s such a standard plot in modern-day historicals. However, this couple shows that even if Lydia is a flirt, she does not deserve Wickham as a husband and have to put up with him her whole life. And I say this when marriage-of-convenience is my favorite trope.
