When you truly love someone, you don’t want to be apart. Even though wedding vows contain the phrase, “Until death do us part,” you’ll want to be together for all of eternity. That’s why so many couples choose to be buried next to one another. Of course, if you’re going to go to your final resting place, you might as well do it in style. Here are a few of the sweetest, most beautiful headstones from graveyards around the world dedicated to couples.

1. Couple In Bed Together

This tombstone is gorgeous because it imitates the bed that the couple used for the majority of their lifespans. After all, lying down in your bedroom to go to sleep with your partner isn’t all that different than lying down in your deathbed. Not to be morbid. As long as their partner is next to them, they’ll both be happy.

2. Couple Hugged By An Angel

If you’re religious, it can’t hurt to have an angel on your headstone. This one is big enough to fit the names of two people, so you can include both you and your partner. Not that you’re bragging with it, but knowing the world would see how much you loved each other in life has a certain appeal.

3. Couple Surrounded By Hearts And Roses

This headstone is elaborate, because it has so much going on at once. There are two hearts, each with a name inside of it. There are roses, there are wedding rings, and there’s even a religious figure on the side of it all. It gives new life (err – afterlife) to religious vows.

4. Couple Made Of Stone

There’s nothing fancier than having you and your partner made out of stone. That way, mourners don’t have to imagine what their loved ones looked like, because there will be two replicas right in front of them. Some people may believe this verges on creepy, but others will be comforted by the fact that their loved ones seem so close by. And to strangers, it’s likely seen as an elaborate piece of art and commitment.

5. Couple Inside Of Hearts

Usually, one spouse goes before the other, and having a ready-made, two-person headstone is really quite a testament to each other’s commitment to each other. This headstone is a sweet way to leave behind your mark and your love. It’s not too big, but it’ll still remind everyone of the love you and your partner share.

6. Couple Sleeping Together

This beautifully crafted piece of art as a tombstone would make your loved ones feel at peace, because it portrays you and your partner as a happy couple that isn’t afraid of the afterlife. You’re just happy to be together. Although this headstone costs tons of money that most people don’t have to spend, it’s still a great way to comfort your relatives by letting them know that you’ll be okay, even after you’re long gone.


What’s the fanciest headstone that you’ve ever come across? Have you and your partner thought about what you’d want after passing? Do you already have plans and ideas “eternally ever after?”
