Valentine’s Day Quiz     

 

 

The answers to the following questions are all famous couples with romantic connotations – well, just about.  You would probably think of them primarily as biblical (5), historical (6), musical (3), mythical (4), poetical (3) and theatrical (4), though most could put in more than one category.  The ‘and’ in the answer may not always be reflected in the question, nevertheless every question refers to both members of the couple either collectively or individually.
