We hear a lot about couples who meet on set, often while filming romantic scenes. Although it's "acting," it's foolish to believe there isn't real emotion being brought to their performances. Well, what about the couples who already have the chemistry, and aren't just discovering it for the first time?

This is an article about them! Some duos work so well together their filmography overlaps multiple times. Others, it's just a one-off gem. But either way, working with a significant other can have it's own special type of challenges.
