What is a good word or phrase for a couple that is perfect?

Would that be referred to as a good match, or is there a better choice?

Also, is there a word or phrase to describe that when the girlfriend and boyfriend just are very similar in appearance?

    A couple that seems to be just perfect is called "a perfect couple". Seriously. Apr 20, 2015 at 4:15

To be made for each other:

  • [of two people] very well suited romantically. Bill and Jane were made for each other. Mr. and Mrs. Smith were not exactly made for each other. They really don't get along.

(McGraw-Hill Dictionary of American Idioms)


A match made in heaven.

This is a pretty common expression.


perfect for each other

Good Will Hunting (1997)

Sean: You're not perfect, sport, and let me save you the suspense: this girl you've met, she's not perfect either. But the question is whether or not you're perfect for each other.
