About This Quiz

Before the unforgettable tale of Romeo and Juliet, there were many stories of people, gods and other mythical creatures falling in love, and some of them have restored the faith that there is someone out there for us.

Many of the memorable relationships were examples of forbidden love in which something or someone tried to prevent the two lovers from being together. Against all the odds, many of them succeeded in being together, and although most of the love stories ended tragically, they serve as an example of how powerful love can be.

Some of these timeless stories include that of Tristan and Isolde, two people who could never let go of each other despite being with other people or Helen and Paris, two people whose love for one another caused a war that killed thousands. Other stories are those of Psyche and Cupid, a couple who spent years searching for one another, and Hero and Leander, a couple who would literally swim across a great lake in the dead of night to see each other. 

Which mythic couple are you and your significant other? Will your tale end in tragedy like many of the couples, or will it be a love that lasts a lifetime? If you would like to find out, then you should take this quiz!
