I mean, we can argue about the happiness of Elizabeth/Henry's marriage yes but I literally do not trust anybody who writes against them then drools over his son's obsession with Anne Boleyn. Like no

Yes of course, all marriages have their ups and downs and disagreements that is completely normal and healthy.

But I don’t think Henry’s obsession over Anne is healthy or should be regarded as a love story, especially since we known how it ended. Just because Henry made grand over the top declarations of love to Anne doesn’t mean there was any substance to them other than in the moment, and once it became clear things weren’t going as Henry planned he didn’t seem interested in trying make it work anyway.
