It seems that many of the world’s cringe-worthy couples delight in posing for portraits that are as tasteless as they are embarrassing. Take these two avid cyclists, for example, one of whom looks a little bit too excited at the prospect of a long day’s riding. Yet while this pair can at least partially blame an unfortunate juxtaposition for the awkwardness they project, the following 20 couples have no such excuse.

This is either a naturist couple who’re very much in love or a ventriloquist and his life-size female dummy. It’s her less than natural expression that leads to the confusion.

Why this creepy-looking – and possibly fancy-dress-party-attending – couple decided to superimpose their mugshots onto their portrait is a mystery that will never be solved.

As Harry Potter’s Xenophilius Lovegood said, “One simply uses the symbol to reveal oneself to other believers, in the hope that they might help with the Quest.” The weirdos.

When two become one

There’s something halfhearted about this couple’s attempt at matched-up tattoos. The inks aren’t even aligned properly.

It must have been a nightmare trying to find a studio with the same background as her estranged, shirt-hating husband’s portrait.

Him: “I’ve been chasing her for years, and now I’ve got her I’m never letting go!” Her: “Meep meep…”

This couple obviously like to role play. Either that or this portrait shot is a metaphor for their relationship. Poor guy; there’s no getting away.

The only time a guy could get away with accidentally looking at this girl is when her boyfriend is otherwise engaged with his hands full – like, say, while awkwardly cupping.

Please make this leopard change its spots.

This couple is fierce; that’s a whole lot of leopard print to go with those stern expressions. Not quite sure what to make of the animalistic mating pose, though.

From the day they met these solemates were a shoe-in for an embarrassing couple photo. Puppy love, indeed.

This chap – who looks more Indiana Jones villain than trophy hunter – sits proudly with his trophy wife. And that cat will definitely be stuffed when its nine lives expire.

Daring tattoos

The knowing smirks hint that this might have been a dare. The terrible tattoos, however, are a reminder that this couple is guilty of having made more than one awful decision.

Never has a cowboy been so rangy. Still, at least those long limbs mean that he doesn’t have to reach too far for his favorite saddle.

After a heavy bachelor party the night before, the groom woke up a little horse and made a bit of an ass of himself. Foal play, perhaps?

When one of them poses with a bayonet-rifle combo and the other with a parakeet, you’ve got to wonder what – aside from bad hair and sunglasses – this couple have in common.
