Stop trying to make shit couples happen. They're not going to happen

If your mate had been in any of the rels below, you'd be telling them to run for the hills, not get back together.

But...who is going to give me themed wedding vow renewals every year? Source: Wedding etc.


Who hasn't looked a pic of Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, Justin and Selena and thought, Ohh! Get back together! (Sidenote: when I Googled 'celeb couples we wish were still together', do you know what pops up heaps? Chris Brown and Rihanna! YUCKKK HELL TO THE NO!) But this week, when singer Darren Hayes was asked about the Savage Garden reunion we've all been craving (just me?) he shut it down, stating, 'Imagine if you had come out and survived a really dysfunctional and toxic relationship, and then for years later people would ask you to please get back in that relationship.' It's so true and made me think - if your friend or family member had been in any of the rels below, you'd be telling them to run for the hills, not get back together. So instead of wishing the below couples would reunite, let's just acknowledge that they were shit couples and we should stop trying to make them happen.

Brad and Jen

Look, I get it. At the time, they were A-list Hollywood royalty. But that time...is legit now 15 years ago. They have been divorced longer than they even were together, let alone married. Also, rooting for someone to get back together with their ex who literally cheated on them in front of the whole world is awf - imagine if someone did that to your mate, they would be dead to you forever! Jen's a 10/10 homegirl, and we want the best for her - and that does not include running back to your ex.

Yes yes, the sexual chemistry in the A Star Is Born film was electric, yes yes, when they performed at the Oscars 100% of us were convinced they were sexing:
