When it comes down to it, Harry Potter is so much more than a book series or a film franchise; it’s a way of life. Of course, we’re still awaiting our Hogwarts acceptance letter to be delivered by Owl Post, but we’ve written a strongly worded letter with our feathered quill and sent it to the Ministry of Magic, so they’ll hopefully rectify the situation ASAP. Although we wish we could just apparate ourselves into the Wizarding World and inside the walls of Hogwarts, anyone who has read Hogwarts: A History will know that you can’t do that – duh – so we’ll just have to wait our turn and take in the magic from the outside. Either that, or we’ll just ‘Accio’ over a Daily Prophet, as well as a Quibbler, to keep up to date on the latest magical news. It’s hard being a witch in a Muggle world, y’know. Yet, it seems some of our favorite witches and wizards have also joined us in the Muggle world and taken a break from their fellow magical folk. In fact, they’ve actually found love in the real world…
In 1997, the Muggle world as we know it changed forever when J.K. Rowling unleashed one of the best-kept secrets of all time – the existence of witches and wizards. Before too long, Rowling had followed up The Sorcerer’s Stone with another six novels that appealed to witches, wizards, squibs, goblins, trolls, giants, owls and giant squids alike, but no collective group loved the magic more than everyday Muggles. As the book series proved increasingly popular, Chris Columbus decided to immortalize the magic on the big screen, and offer viewers the chance to be fully immersed within the walls of Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, The Burrow, The Ministry of Magic and even Number 4 Privet Drive – although you wouldn’t want to stay there for very long. However, one of the most exciting developments within the Harry Potter film franchise was to see our favorite characters come to life… and even have some pretty epic romances. Oo-er.
Despite the fact that Harry was constantly being bombarded by one of the darkest wizards of all time – which kinda sucked, we bet he wished he could just transfigure Lord Voldemort into a paperclip – Harry Potter was still able to fill his time at Hogwarts with friendship, laughter, and love. Indeed, from a little crush on Cho to a spiked box of chocolates from Romilda Vane to a full-blown romance with none other than Ginny Weasley, Harry definitely had his hands full. Yet, he wasn’t the only Harry Potter character to feel the magic of love in their lives. There was Ron and Lavender, Hermione and Krum, Cho and Cedric, and even Hagrid and Madame Maxime. However, as the cameras stopped rolling on the Wizarding World, these characters stepped out of their robes and retired their wands to find love in the Muggle world. Check out these real-life relationships of the Harry Potter cast.

Ahhhh, young Draco. If his slicked back hair wasn’t enough to make your skin crawl, his surname would definitely do the trick. As the son of Lucius Malfoy, a notorious Death Eater, this Slytherin quickly becomes one of Harry’s worst enemies. Throughout their stint at Hogwarts, Draco tried with all of his might to stunt Harry’s attempts to rule the school and destroy the Dark Lord, but it never quite happened for him. Sorry, Draco. In real life, Tom Felton and Daniel Radcliffe are actually pretty good pals!
