Inspired by the real people at the end of this TV Tropes list
, I'm looking for more examples of real couples who did amazing things together--exploration, adventure, military exploits, extreme athletics, etc.
Not sure of the exact criteria, but something along the lines of facing significant physical risk or challenge together, and their couple-hood being an advantage, not just one tagging along after the other. (The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.) Probably not politicians or criminals. Even better if they have/had kids, and if they're still alive and/or in action.
Some I've already added to the list: Albert & Helene Schweitzer, climbers Dean Potter and Steph Davis (though now divorced), Daniel Boone & his family.
