Iconic Disney Kisses <3
In light of Valentine’s Day, I decided to write an makala on the Disney Princess couple’s that I believe have the best and most realistic relationship. Oh, and spoiler alert: I only really like 4 of them.

Couples I DON’T like…

10. Mulan & Shang

Mulan & Shang


I upendo Mulan – she’s intelligent, brave and selfless. And Shang’s no novice either; in fact, his bravery, leadership and courage are practically matchless. But their relationship, it was too sudden; too forced. They lacked chemistry. Make no mistake, I upendo Mulan and Shang, they’re great – just not together.

9. cinderella & Prince Charming

cinderella & Prince Charming


Prince Charming!? HA! I found the candlestick from Beauty & The Beast to be zaidi of a lady pleaser. Charming basically sat on his butt while some servant went searching for his bride-to-be. Wait; hold up, they’re getting married? But all they did was dance for an saa au so? Did they even talk? Anyways, I have a lot of problems with this couple. But I’ll just stop there, before I hurt any feelings.

8. Snow White & The Prince

Snow White & The Prince


I upendo how innocent and genuine Snow White is. I upendo that she is hardworking. And I absolutely upendo her kindness. However, I DON’T upendo that she’s getting married at 13. And I especially don’t like that it’s too someone she barely even knows. I mean, come on – are these two even a couple? Like, 2 dakika of screen time together? Really?

7. Tiana & Prince Naveen

Tiana & Naveen


Again, Tiana is great. My problem is with Naveen, who personally, I think is way to self-absorbed to ever handle a serious relationship in the first place. They really have nothing in common, and he displays what I’ll call a “general cocky disregard” for Tiana throughout the entire movie. Yes, he’s good-looking; and charming, perhaps. But honestly, I know Tiana could do better. She deserves better.

upendo the shades of green - so beautiful.


Couples I SOMTIMES like…

(It depends on my mood, I guess. I’m on the fence with these two couples.)

6. Aurora & Prince Phillip

Aurora & Phillip


They meet, and she’s scared. I mean, what? Hello? He’s freaking gorgeous! And he slayed a dragon! Anyways, I don’t think these two had a whole lot of communication to base a relationship on, but somehow at the end, it didn’t seem to matter. It still didn’t really feel like “love” to me, but they do make a beautiful couple.

5. Belle & Beast

Belle & Adam


This is another Tiana-Naveen situation, but before wewe scroll down and write an ugly comment, hear me out. Her father accidently trespasses on private property, and naturally, the solution is to lock him in the dungeon for an eternity? Furthermore, after graciously taking his place, she is mourning the loss of the life she once knew – and what does that jerk do? He persists she jiunge him for dinner. Oh, and if she doesn’t eat with him, she doesn’t eat period. It’s his house, his rules after all; and later when she breaks one of them, he throws a tantrum and scares her half to hell. He is an abusive, controlling and ill-tempered monster. Literally. And yes, he does have a change of heart. But he didn’t do nearly enough to make up for his cruelty. I do begin to like the beast once he frees Belle, but still. I just can’t help feeling he’s bound to relapse on his old behaviours now that he doesn’t need Belle to upendo him. After all, he’s already human. Mission accomplished (not that he was using her au anything…). All-in-all, I upendo AND hate this couple – just as I upendo Belle, and (sometimes) hate the Beast.

Couples I ALWAYS like…

3/4. Ariel & Prince Eric

Ariel & Eric


Cons? Let’s see… when Ariel saves Eric, she exclaims “Daddy, I upendo him!” – the only thing is, they never even talked (he was actually unconscious for almost the entire time). Then, she basically risks her soul for a chance to win his love. This, too me, doesn’t add up. It would have been nice if they had some conversations to actually build their relationship on, but at the same time, I upendo the fact that it was the little gestures and expressions that brought them together. Ultimately, the fact that Eric loved her – mermaid au human – and Ariel was willing to go through so much for him, solidifies this couple as one of the Disney’s greatest. It was a gamble, but thankfully, it paid off.

3/4. Aladin & Princess jimmy, hunitumia

Aladin & jimmy, hunitumia


Aladin & jimmy, hunitumia are tied with Ariel & Eric. Like Eric, jimmy, hunitumia loves Aladin – mitaani, mtaa panya au prince – and Aladdin, like Ariel, goes through so much to be with Jasmine. My issue with Aladin is that he lied to Jasmine, multiple times. However, because he returned to redeem himself (and saved the kingdom in the process), I think we can forgive his mistakes. Aladin and jimmy, hunitumia had plenty of communication and chemistry to build a relationship on. Their upendo was realistic and believable. Just as Eric & Ariel’s was. Again, these couples are tied – because I just couldn’t make a decision.

Beautiful scene, adorable couple.


2. Rapunzel & Flynn

Rapunzel & Flynn


"Now that I see you..."


I only recently saw Tangled, but I absolutely fell in upendo with Rapunzel and Flynn. I loved watching their relationship progress and witnessing all the little, individually brilliant moments they shared as they slowly opened up, and we realized that they needed each other. They’re upendo happened naturally, with plenty of comic relief inserted along the way. They’re puzzle pieces; different, but a perfect fit. Yes, they did tie the knot a little too soon for my liking, but ultimately, they’re perfect for each other anyways. They’re the flawless combination of fun and passion. However, despite being (possibly) my favourite Disney couple, the number 1 spot had to go to…

This is so passionate, I upendo the way they hold eachother.


They're fun, refreshing, exciting & hilarious - and I upendo them for it.


1. Pocahontas & John Smith

Pocahontas & John Smith


These two are absolutely beautiful together. I fell in upendo with them while they fell in upendo with each other. Their relationship is so passionate, and the intensity of their forbidden upendo is undeniable. They share their worlds, their experiences, and their beliefs. Each were changed for the better, and the entire relationship happens so organically that it is completely believable. The only con: They didn’t stay together. This unfortunate reality is the only Disney Princess moment that has brought me to tears. It breaks my heart, every time.

THIS IS SO PASSIONATE & BEAUTIFUL!


There they are, the Classic Disney Princess relationships that I find to be the most realistic, and ultimately, the best. I know a large majority of people won’t agree with my choices – and that’s alright.

All I ask is that before wewe write a negative comment, at least read what I had to say about the couple in question. (I realize a lot of people just look at the pictures – which is why I included many!)

Thanks for reading!
