7 messiest couples on Grey's Anatomy from Towen to Jaggie

Grey's Anatomy is no stranger to relationships. Some ships work well and we wanted to see them succeed. Others are just plain messy!

Crowen (Cristina and Owen)

At first, Cristina and Owen looked like they could potentially work out. Owen trusted Cristina by bringing her to a place that made him feel happier and more at peace. This is a huge step when it comes to building a relationship with someone.

However, things took a turn when it was clear Owen wanted children and Cristina didn’t. There isn’t a compromise here, but the two tried to find one. I was so glad that we had the what if storylines of one of them sacrificing their wishes as it showed us and Cristina that it just couldn’t happen.

There was a lot of messiness in this ship, though. We saw Owen take advantage of Cristina’s traumatized state after her plane crash—no, he should not have agreed to marry her straight after that—and we saw him not even apologetic for his affair.

Owen is a great doctor, but he’s useless when it comes to relationships. Yes, he turns up on this list again.

Omelia (Amelia and Owen)

Owen really does have a lot of problematic ships throughout Grey’s Anatomy. At first, it looked like Amelia and Owen could work. Were they conventional, no, but they were able to connect with each other in a way that others couldn’t.

That was until they realized that they wanted different things in life. After her experience with Christopher in Private Practice, Amelia didn’t want children. Yet, Owen did. He once again found himself with someone who didn’t want the same things as him in a marriage, and that meant they weren’t compatible.

Instead of just accepting that and separating, Owen spent time trying to convince Amelia that she did want kids after all. And then we have the whole tumor storyline for Amelia, which tried to explain some of her irrational behavior (only for it to not fix anything!). These two should have just ended things as soon as they realized they couldn’t work.
