Se7en's. Also are we sure Driver's couple doesn't live happily ever after?

It's an ambiguous end but the most likely is that the Driver dies or leaves

It's a reall great poll sugg, but I can't weigh in because I haven't seen some of these movies and I'm not emotionally connected to the rest anyway.  :)

Ilsa Lund and Rick Blaine for me. Ilsa is trapped in a loveless marriage, Rick is resigning himself to loneliness, and World War II is not over yet for them. 

I don't feel particularly sad about Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara, though I like both characters. They failed to properly communicate with each other throughout their relationship and marriage, and their daughter's death brought forth some of the worse aspects of their personalities. A divorce and placing some distance between them is probably a decent solution to prevent them from destroying each other. (I feel sadder for Scarlett following Melanie Hamilton's death, because she realizes a bit too late that her sister-in-law Melanie was her only true friend.)

I don't feel sad at all for Rose Dewitt Bukater. The film indicates that surviving Titanic's sinking inspired her to take control over her own life. Her photos from the intervening decades suggest that she lived "a life of freedom and adventure ", and she lived long enough to be a centenarian in the film's present day. Not bad for a woman who was supposed to become a trophy wife for a businessman.

Neither "Seven", nor "Braveheart" put any effort into fleshing out the wives of the male leads, so I am not that sad for the typical "Women in Refrigerators" plots in these films. I found it far sadder that one of the victims in "Seven" commited suicide, because she could not endure living with a mutilated face.

I would not wish on any woman (or man) to be in a relationship with Forrest Gump, no matter how much I disliked them. As my uncle used to say, some people "live in absentia".
