The Winx's Love Lives

Has anyone considered this as a reason why Rainbow killed off Nabu and broke up Musa and Riven? If the couples had stayed the same for the whole series, here's what the Winx's love lives would have looked like now:

  • Bloom: Engaged to her second boyfriend
  • Stella: Possibly engaged to her first boyfriend
  • Flora: Dating her first boyfriend
  • Aisha: Possibly engaged to her first boyfriend
  • Tecna: Dating her first boyfriend
  • Musa: Dating her first boyfriend

This is assuming Rainbow didn't introduce more past boyfriends like Andy, but those would have just been puppy love/crushes anyway.

If we limit this to boyfriends who were main characters, the list would look like this:

  • Bloom: Engaged to her first boyfriend
  • Stella: Possibly engaged to her first boyfriend
  • Flora: Dating her first boyfriend
  • Aisha: Possibly engaged to her first boyfriend
  • Tecna: Dating her first boyfriend
  • Musa: Dating her first boyfriend

Don't see any problems with this? Here are a few:

1) It's unrealistic: If you gathered six women together, how many do you think would still be dating (or married to) the first person they dated in high school? Maybe one, two if you're lucky — but all six? Highly unlikely. In real life, people have many relationships before finding "The One," and high school romance rarely lasts.

2) There's little or no variation: The relationships themselves would be different, but the results would be the same: all six Winx marrying their first boyfriends. Wouldn't you expect (and want) more variety to the Winx's life stories?

3) It's cliché: I've heard fans say they appreciate the uniqueness of Winx Club. Having all six Winx marry their first boyfriends wouldn't have been unique at all. Case in point: Disney. Name a Disney animated movie where the princess doesn't marry her first love interest. Guess what? There are only two: Pocahontas II and Frozen. Pocahontas II barely counts because the real Pocahontas never fell in love with John Smith anyway, and the guy she ends up marrying (John Rolfe) was her historical husband. Fiction-wise, Anna from Frozen is the only Disney princess who ends up with her second love interest — because the first one turns out to be the main villain.

Here's what the Winx's love lives look like now, as of the end of season seven:

  • Bloom: Engaged to her second boyfriend
  • Stella: Possibly engaged to her first boyfriend
  • Flora: Dating her first boyfriend
  • Aisha: Dating her second boyfriend (or third boyfriend, depending on who you ask)
  • Tecna: Dating her first boyfriend
  • Musa: Single

It's still not very realistic, but it's more realistic than all six Winx still with their first boyfriends. Whether or not you like Rainbow's decision to split up two of the initial couples, it added more variety to the Winx's love lives and kept that aspect of the show from falling into a stagnant pattern. They also avoided the Disney "first love is always true love" myth.
