Last fall, we decided that the media's plethora of people, events and fill-in-the-blanks "of the year" ratings was lacking a most important element: couples.
We sorted through hundreds of possible pairs -- some famous, some not -- to settle on our top 20 favorite couples of 2007. Some eliminations were easier (no offense, Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil) than others.
Our list includes Al Gore sans Tipper, a rumored celebrity "fouple" (faux couple) whom we love even if they're only "best friends" and Elizabeth Gilbert, author of last year's bestselling book Eat, Pray, Love.
Now it's up to you to give the thumbs up or thumbs down to our choices.
