This was not an easy decision. But it was a decision that Chyler and I came to together. We still believe in the power of this couple, and might even see hope for them reuniting in the future, even if we don't see it on the show.Grey's Anatomy - Lexie and Mark (whole love story)
Cristina Yang and Preston Burke Considering Burke was one of Cristina's great loves, it's hard to picture them as one of the worst couples. However, there was very little in this romance that was healthy for either person involved.
In reality, Burke was highly controlling and manipulative.
He kept forcing Cristina into decisions that she wasn't fully ready to make, but that she was willing to do because she loved him so much. He didn't respect her for who she was, and she didn't have a huge respect for him beyond his incredible talents as a surgeon, either. When he was dealing with his shaky hand, Cristina was just as much to blame for manipulating him into lying about it and hiding it for the sake of his career.

In truth, they were a highly toxic romance, and Burke leaving Cristina at the altar was probably the best thing he ever did for her. No matter how much they've tried to fight it, they always seem to find their way back to each other. They might not always be on the same page, but they're able to put their differences aside for the most part and create the best possible life for their child. Not only that, but they honestly have each other's best interests in mind, even though they've fought through some pretty traumatic events that could easily breed bitterness between the two of them.
They might not end up together, but we'll always be big fans of their love story. Amelia Shepherd and Owen Hunt There's no denying that this relationship is an actual disaster. Amelia was always lukewarm about everything to do with Owen—she almost ran away on her wedding day for goodness sake—and poor Owen finally thought that he found someone he could build a life with, only to have her completely flip the script on him as soon as they said "I do," and then effectively ghost him.
Amelia has some deep issues that she needs to work through before she pulls other people into her mess, and she should have just left Owen alone. Also, how many more times is Owen going to fall for someone who wants the exact opposite of what he wants? Because it's just getting sad at this point.
However, most of their problems seem to come from not handling outside influences in the right manner, instead of the two of them having issues with each other. They have a problem using their words to work through their problems, but they genuinely love and support each other, even when they're incredibly angry at the other person. We're definitely rooting for this couple.
We're not buying it. While Meredith and Derek undoubtedly had an epic love, that doesn't necessarily mean it was a good relationship. Beyond the many times they went out of their way to hurt one another, they also just couldn't get on the same page.
