After waking up from a nightmare, Belle spies Rumpelstiltskin using his in his life, and ends up asking for some relationship advice as well.
It blossomed into a sweet and loving relationship between two women who accepted each other and encouraged the best in the other. It was only fitting that this pair was officially engaged by the end of the season. After working so hard to find each other again, they deserved their own happy ending.
We just only wish that we could have seen the wedding! Even though the pair were together very briefly in the first season, their whole relationship just had a pervasive uncomfortableness that made it hard to watch. It was definitely one that hurt the most because he had that something with Emma.
The couple, rather fascinatingly, represents the second chance at true love that each of them share. In the past, Regina had Daniel and Robin had Marian. Regina had run from a chance to have her true love with Robin and went down the dark path.
Maybe it needed to happen for them to have their chance. Either way, their relationship was more tribulation than triumph. When the pair were together, they were devoted to each other. Though it ended in tragedy, it did allow to Regina to fully commit to her own heroism and goodness. Sometimes, love can only transform us, no matter how brief it is.

He picked power over love, he continually lied to her. Even when she leaves him and tries to find her own happiness, Belle is always pulled back in. It was an unending cycle of the same retread of their issues, eventually you just wish they would put them both out of their misery.
In the end, season seven saw Rumple and Belle have a happy life together and reunite in the afterlife. Still, after all that came before it, you had to wonder if it was worth it. While Killian was always attracted to Emma, he needed to choose being a better person over his revenge. We saw shades of this in season two, but when he committed to becoming more heroic he mostly stayed the course.

He lashes out at Belle and sends her back to the dungeon, and eventually kicks her out of his castle altogether.
Belle argues that power won't be enough for Rumple and that he is only doing this because he doesn't believe anyone could truly love him. Before leaving, she says, "Now, you've made your choice. And you're going to regret it.
