Disney relationships have a reputation of teaching young girls the wrong message.

People criticize the classic movies for having female characters that rely too heavily on their princes.

However, there are tons of Disney relationships that send a good message.2

They teach girls that they’re valuable members of society, and that their gender doesn’t define them.

1. Tangled

Rapunzel and Flynn are an adorable couple that manage to take care of one another.

Flynn isn’t the strong one in the relationship.

They’re both intelligent, capable people who know how to survive.2

Tangled contains one of the Disney relationships that portray men and women as equals.2

Sure, Rapunzel needed Flynn, but he also needed her.2

2. Frozen

This new Disney film is adorable and entertaining.

Although the main character falls in love after a day, her feelings are made fun of by other characters.

The film points out how ridiculous it is to rush into a committed relationship with someone after a few hours of knowing them.

Instead, you must really get to know someone.

Your true love could be someone whom you didn’t even like at first.

It's amazing how drastically time can change your feelings.

3. The Lion King

Simba and Nala were best friends since they were cubs.

They have a lot of history, and they clearly love one another.

Even after they’re separated for years, their feelings remain.

When they’re reunited, they love one another as much as they ever had.

They’re proof that absence makes the heart grow fonder.

4. Hercules

Meg is a strong woman who is able to take care of herself.

She resists Hercules’ help, because she knows how to survive on her own: “I’m a damsel, I’m in distress, I can handle this.” Although she falls in love with Hercules, it isn’t because she needs him.2

Their relationship is a healthy one, even by today’s standards.
