BELLADONNA

The saying goes that you never forget your first love and Belladonna certainly fulfilled that role with Gambit. They were in love since they were children and, although Gambit had his share of flings with other women, there was no doubt that they would be married. Unfortunately, it was arranged to bring about the peace between thieves and assassins, two warring guilds that made the Montagues and Capulets look positively amicable.

Julien, Belladonna's brother who had certain unnatural feelings towards her, challenged Gambit on his wedding day and was supposedly killed in the ensuing duel. However, because the peace between the two guilds was so fragile, Gambit was exiled and he thought he would never see Belladonna again.

With that in mind, he decided to move on with his life and fell (unexpectedly) in love with Rogue.

ROGUE

Rogue is, according to most fans, the one true love of Gambit's life. And, in true Shakespearean style, the course of true love never did run smooth for this couple. Rogue's powers - the vampiric ability to suck the soul out of a person - prevent the tactile Gambit from ever touching her, while his caginess makes it difficult for her to trust him.

Then, of course, there are the multiple issues that arise out of both of them having had shady and unpleasant pasts.

As a result, although they are in love and both acknowledge it openly, their relationship is rocky and they spend as much time apart and broken up as they do together. However, when they do get it right and they are a couple, the chemistry and the magic between them is a thing of beauty.
