While we all secretly hoped that James Cameron, while adapting Titanic from its three-hour original to the 3D spectacle we’ll be sobbing over this weekend, took our notes and altered the ending to have Jack try one more time to climb aboard the raft with Rose, we know that’s not the case. There’s only one thing he changed in the editing process, and it had nothing to do with stars we actually cared about. Jack and Rose let go, and the perfect couple of the 90s was separated forever.

It’s the fate that becomes every pairing we spent our formative years fantasizing about and living vicariously through. Whether they came together on screen, in reality or totally platonically, here are the 90s couples we miss most and would like to see reconnected, preferably in 3D.
