In the battle of horseback-riding sweethearts, only one pair can ride off into the sunset.

We're down to the Sweet 16 in our TV Couples March Madness Challenge, and we've got a real heartbreaker for you, voters: Once Upon a Time's Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) versus Outlander's Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Frasier (Sam Heughan). Let's take a closer look at the match-up.

How They Met

Oh, you know the usual meet-cute... Girl steals a bag of jewels, boy runs after her, girl bashes boy's chin and escapes with his horse. It's way more romantic than it sounds, okay? These enchanting heroes have been facing villains and curses for years, but through it all, they always find each other. 

Current Relationship Status

Married and they have two children, Emma and Neal, plus a grandchild — Emma's son, Henry. (That's curses for you.)

March Madness Secret Weapon

Dallas and Goodwin are a REAL-LIFE couple with a REAL-LIFE baby. If that isn't deserving of March Madness glory, we don't know what is.

How They Met

After accidentally time-traveling from the 20th century to the 18th (as one does when one is a kick-ass heroine), Claire found herself in the company of Clan MacKenzie. She used her superior medical skills to relocate Jamie's arm, and then the two shared a horse together the next morning. 

Current Relationship Status

Married! It's complicated because Claire is also married to a man back (forward?) in the 20th century, but 18th century marriages take precedent, right? Right.

March Madness Secret Weapon

Outlander, the beloved novel upon which the show is based, was published in 1991. Readers have been falling in love with Jamie and Claire for almost a quarter century! Plus, have you seen the two actors off-set? They may not be married like Dallas and Goodwin, but these two know how to serve up sizzling, irresistible chemistry.
