Romantic Couples Through the Ages

9 of 14
RobertandElizabethBrowning

Elizabeth and Robert Browning


This literary pair broke all the rules to be together. Robert was six years her junior, and Elizabeth's father had forbidden her to marry. Yet she ran away from home to be united with her beloved. Contrary to Victorian convention, Elizabeth was the more successful spouse, as her poems and literary work garnered her international praise. Robert's poetry received little recognition, in contrast, and proved to be unprofitable. These trifles did not divide the couple, however, and they remained ardently dedicated to one another throughout their lives.
