We can’t help it; we just love a bit of romance. Luckily for us, there was plenty of it in the wizarding world. From couples you know to those who flew under the radar – see how many of these relationships you can remember. You never know, you might learn something new about some of your favourite characters…

Warning! There are some mild spoilers ahead. If you haven’t read all the Harry Potter books, you might want to turn back now…

Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley

He was the famous Boy Who Lived. The one who brought down the Dark Lord as a baby. She was the fearless Weasley. The one who believed anything was possible with enough nerve. Together they were a Dark-wizard-fighting, Quidditch-loving power couple.

And while their relationship might not have seemed inevitable to begin with – seeing as Ginny could barely string a sentence together in front of her crush and Harry barely noticed her – when they got together in Harry’s sixth year, it felt right. Harry and Ginny were exactly what each other needed and after three children and half their lives together, they were still as strong as ever.

Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley

This relationship might have been a slow burn, but it was worth the wait. Hermione and Ron went from two people who could barely tolerate each other, to two friends with a habit of quarrelling, to an endgame pairing with two children... who still loved to bicker.

Luckily for us, we got to witness the whole thing play out from start to finish. While she claimed that he had the emotional range of a teaspoon and he liked to refer to her as a know-it-all, we know that they truly loved each other and had one thoroughly tested and thoroughly unbreakable connection. They were even planning to renew their vows!

J.K. Rowling has said in a past interview that she wonders if Harry and Hermione would have been the better couple!

Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour

Mrs Weasley might have been reluctant to initially give this relationship her blessing, but we know that Bill and Fleur were a pair for the ages. From Bill giving Fleur English lessons to Fleur standing by Bill after he was attacked by Fenrir Greyback to their spectacular wedding, these two were undoubtedly a team. They also seemed to share a strong moral compass and were unafraid to fight back against Voldemort and shelter those who needed it at their home, Shell Cottage.

Nymphadora Tonks and Remus Lupin

One of our favourite and also most heart-breaking relationships happened between a bright-haired Metamorphmagus and a werewolf.

Tonks and Lupin were a couple that just made sense. Like Yin and Yang, they balanced each other perfectly – Lupin’s reserved and studious personality in harmony with Tonks’ bright and vivacious nature.

We wish that these two could have had more time together – their story had only just begun. Yet, even though they only had a few short years together, their son Teddy lived on as a permanent reminder of their love.

Tonks and Lupin fell in love with each other while working together in the Order of the Phoenix. Tonks’ Patronus even changed form to match Lupin’s werewolf.

Arthur Weasley and Molly Weasley

We couldn’t do a roundup of wizarding world couples and not mention one of the strongest, longest-lasting and refreshingly normal relationships now, could we? If soulmates exist, then that’s what Arthur and Molly Weasley were. Yes, he might get on her nerves with his Muggle obsession and determination to understand the true function of a rubber duck.

And yes, she might play a little too much Celestina Warbeck. But this pair were made for each other. Having been together since school, they had seven wonderful children, a loving family home and a bond stronger than the force of ten Whomping Willows.

Draco Malfoy and Astoria Malfoy

Whilst Pansy Parkinson seemed to be Draco’s possible love interest at school, the witch he ended up with was quite different indeed. Astoria Malfoy was no nasty bully. In fact, she was the anchor that Draco needed when finding his way in a post-Voldemort world. She didn’t subscribe to the idea that pure-bloods were superior, seemed to be innately kind and brought light and joy into Draco’s dark and often lonely life. Although she unfortunately died, she appeared to have changed her husband for the better. And their son Scorpius? Well, he continued her legacy of proving that Malfoys could be kind and openminded.

While this is more about a crush than a couple, did you notice that Draco and Astoria’s son, Scorpius, had a bit of a thing for a certain Granger-Weasley? His clumsy attempts at trying to get Rose to like him in Cursed Child were very adorable… if rather awkward.

Victoire Weasley and Teddy Lupin

There was one budding relationship we caught a glimpse of in the closing chapter of Deathly Hallows – that of Teddy Lupin and Victoire Weasley. This pair might have managed to slip under the radar (and avoid the overexcitement of their family already picturing wedding bells), if it wasn’t for young James Potter catching them snogging on platform nine and three-quarters. Obviously, James immediately told everyone he could find – isn’t that what annoying younger cousins are for?

Neville Longbottom and Hannah Abbott

This is a relationship that we never got to see in the books or the films but was confirmed by J.K. Rowling. Neville Longbottom ended up with Hannah Abbott – a Hufflepuff who had been in his year at school. Whilst we didn’t see much of Hannah, we can see why these two might have been drawn to each other. Both were members of Dumbledore’s Army, both had quite a bit of anxiety when it came to their academic performance, and both had first-hand experience of how Dark magic could tear apart a family. As two characters who were no strangers to heartache, we’re glad they found their happily-ever-after together, married and living above the Leaky Cauldron.

In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, things end a little differently for Neville, with him off to search for Luna, telling Harry he is ‘mad for her’.

Luna Lovegood and Rolf Scamander

Yes, you read that right, our favourite free-spirt ended up with a Scamander – and not just any Scamander – the grandson of Newt and Tina no less.

Rolf turned out to be a chip-off-the-old-block and became a Magizoologist himself – as did Luna. Together the pair of them lived a life of adventure, travelling the world where they discovered and catalogued a range of mysterious creatures. The pair were also parents to twin boys – Lorcan and Lysander.

George Weasley and Angelina Johnson

We must admit, we were pleased to see that George Weasley found someone to spend his life with. After the death of Fred, he could have easily spent his days alone, pining for the missing half of him. But he didn’t. He ended up with fellow member of the Gryffindor Quidditch team, Angelina Johnson. She was loud, determined, a force to be reckoned with and probably exactly the kind of person George needed to help pull him out of his grief.

At the Yule Ball, George’s brother Fred was actually Angelina’s date. In the far future, George would go on to name his son after Fred.

Minerva McGonagall and Elphinstone Urquart

Finally, we wanted to touch upon a little-known relationship, that of Professor McGonagall and her husband (yes, she was married), Elphinstone Urquart. Before she joined Hogwarts as a teacher, Minerva McGonagall briefly worked for the Ministry of Magic.

There she met her boss, Elphinstone Urquart, who took a shine to her. The pair of them later married and lived happily together in a cottage in Hogsmeade. Sadly, that happiness was short-lived. Three years into their marriage, Elphinstone was tragically bitten by a Venomous Tentacula and died. McGonagall found that it was too painful to remain in the home they shared together, and she moved back to Hogwarts. Here she kept her broken heart hidden from everyone but her friend, Albus Dumbledore.

Before Elphinstone, McGonagall was engaged to a Muggle called Dougal McGregor, but sadly decided it wouldn’t work out.
