I've always thought that there's an admirable level of trust and mutual respect despite having so many clashing ideals between them, giving them an understanding of each other that few others can claim to have. And because of that, I think they suit each other really well.
In the early comics Logan and Ororo were often shown to have a flirty relationship, and they even kissed once, in Uncanny X-Men Annual #11 (1987), but their relationship never progressed beyond friendship. Many fans trace their love for the pairing to One Man's Worth, an episode in X-Men: The Animated Series, that showed Logan and Ororo in romantic relationship in an alternative universe. A similar storyline was seen in the original movieverse, when once again, it was shown that Logan and Ororo were together in an alternative universe. The late 2010s comics storyline had Ororo begin a romantic relationship with Logan after her divorce from T'Challa.
