Sakura spent most of the series infatuated with the Uchiha heir, but he seemed lớn have little interest in her. By the end, though, he seems khổng lồ have changed his tune và become much softer towards her. Eventually, by Boruto, they have married và have a daughter, Sarada Uchiha. However, fans talk a lot about this coupling for more reasons than rooting for them. Many also question the lô ghích of their pairing. After all, they have a lot of history, và not all of it is good. Some were even surprised to lớn see them marry at all. Sasuke was a tín đồ favorite anti-hero/rootable villain with little time to lớn worry about romance. Yet here he is, married khổng lồ the girl who loved him for far longer than he deserved. The idea of it sounds kind of romantic, so why bởi fans remain skeptical?

Updated on December 22nd, 2021 by Amanda Bruce: Fans of the na-ru-to franchise might love a good fight sequence, but they also have no problem debating the merits of the thắm thiết relationships in the series. Many fans have found themselves questioning if Sasuke even loves Sakura, or why the two get married in the first place. Their relationship certainly seems lớn have an imbalance of interest và affection that begins with their first interactions in Naruto & continues into the Boruto series.

Sakura Dumped Her First Best Friend For Sasuke

A young Sakura & Ino stand together during a na-ru-to flashback
Sakura Haruno grew up bullied và alone. Her first best friend was Ino Yamanaka, someone who defended her and encouraged her khổng lồ be stronger. The two cherished their friendship. However, as they aged, boys started lớn interest them.

When Sakura discovered that Ino liked the same boy as her, Sasuke, she discarded their friendship and declared them rivals. This broke both girls" hearts và was an overreaction to the situation. They didn"t need to thảm bại their friendship over a boy. It never made any sense for Sakura khổng lồ chose Sasuke, who she barely knew, over her best friend.

Sakura Asked to lớn Join Him When Sasuke Was Evil

Despite her adoration for Sasuke, Sakura dedicates herself to lớn becoming a great ninja. However, during the Five Kage Summit Arc, she asks to join him. At this point, he"s ended lives & done terrible things.

Her love for him eclipses her morals và beliefs. Sakura wants to bởi vì good and help others, yet she was willing lớn forgo that for him. That kind of devotion is unhealthy and shows how senseless her feelings for him were. She was willing to give up who she was to be with him. It"s hard to lớn think any relationship can recover from that màn chơi of twisted.

Sarada Uchiha In Boruto
While it"s said Sasuke & Sakura married for love, there was another big reason for him khổng lồ marry: children. By the over of Naruto, Sasuke is the last surviving Uchiha clan member. If he wants his family lớn live on, he has to lớn produce children.

Regardless of their marital issues, if this was important to Sasuke, they should have had many children, but they didn"t despite his desire khổng lồ return the Uchiha name khổng lồ prominence. It"ll be hard for a whole clan to regrow from the shoulders of one daughter - especially if she takes her future husband"s name. It"s illogical for the couple to lớn have stopped at one child if they wanted khổng lồ give the Uchiha clan its best chance at revival.

Sasuke looks at Sakura out of the corner of his eye in na-ru-to Shippuden
Sakura shows affection for the young Uchiha heir from the second she meets him. Sasuke, though, shows little to no interest in her. His first serious interactions with her, when they first became Team 7, involve him calling her annoying.

For years, their relationship stays friendly at its best & antagonistic at its worst. His focus becomes his revenge and his quest for power. Sakura is irrelevant lớn all of that. It isn"t until after the Fourth Shinobi War that Sasuke shows any interest, and even then, it"s minimal. It makes little sense for that to lớn be enough to constitute a marriage.

Most Of Their Relationship Has Been Long-Distance

Even though Sasuke và Sakura bởi vì marry, they spend little time together. The longest time they are in the same place as a couple is when Sakura follows him on his atonement. During this, they supposedly fall in love, have Sarada, và get married. After Sarada"s birth, Sakura goes back to the village to raise her safely. Other than thaT period, approximately a little less than a year, the couple is almost always apart.

It"s understandable for Sasuke to be gone on important missions, but it seems ludicrous for him khổng lồ barely take the time to come home. It"s a detriment to lớn his relationships with his wife và his daughter.

Sakura"s Desperation for Sasuke"s Approval

Strong-willed and determined as she is, Sakura bends a lot of her opinions và goals lớn fit Sasuke"s approval. She only ever started lớn be kind to Naruto because he disliked her talking badly about him. She also only ever tried lớn work on her abilities to lớn show him that she was strong. Her beliefs in becoming a good nin-ja were powerful, but they all warped to lớn include Sasuke.

What makes least sense of all is that Sasuke was a terrible, selfish shinobi. She never should have placed her worth on his approval. She only had long hair because she thought he"d lượt thích it. Yikes.

Sasuke & Sakura"s Relationship Was Rushed

After the Fourth Shinobi War, Sasuke finally concedes lớn Naruto"s pleas to come home. This is the first và only time he shows any deeper affection towards Sakura. Though their reconciliation is tender, their becoming a couple was terribly rushed.

There were a lot of terrible things & painful feelings between them, even if love was there, too. They never got time to deal with these feelings. Sakura just forgave him, và Sasuke just suddenly loved her. Then they were married, had a kid, & that was that. It barely made any sense to lớn many fans.

Sasuke Made Decisions for Sakura Without Asking Her

Once Sakura marries Sasuke, a lot of her life is decided for her. Her husband often makes decisions that will harshly affect her without telling her. For example, he keeps taking very long missions away from home without her input.

Also, he leaves her alone with their daughter, Sarada, but expects her lớn be happy with being the sole caretaker. He refuses khổng lồ let her come anywhere with him for a very long time. Even if these decisions are meant to protect her, Sasuke stifles his wife"s individuality by making them. This behavior hardly makes sense in a marriage.

Sasuke & Sakura"s Daughter Questions Her Parentage

Sasuke is away so often and for so long that Sarada often questions if her parents are really her parents. First, she questions if Sasuke is her father because of his absence. Later, she questions if Sakura is her mother because of the lack of affection between her và her father.

Eventually, she"s convinced of her parentage, but it"s still a startling issue. Even in unique couplings, children don"t often question their parents so whole-heartedly. It becomes a serious point of contention for Sarada. They try so little in their relationship that their own daughter is unsure about it & is ready to believe that someone else from her father"s past is her mother.

Sasuke Attracts Admirers Despite His Cruel Indifference

More women than just Sakura loved the Uchiha heir. The most important rivals were Ino & Karin. Despite their devotion, Sasuke gave all three women the same treatment: cruel indifference. He"s known to insult them, ignore them, and rebuff their advances. This becomes more extreme, though, when noted that Sasuke has violently attacked both Karin & Sakura. Yet both women still loved him.

Their màn chơi of devotion is absurd, particularly when it isn"t just one woman so attached to him. It"s several. It"s difficult to understand that they still adore him despite such terrible treatment. Even years later, Karin still holds affection for him in the Boruto series.

When Sasuke is away, Sakura does struggle with missing him. Unfortunately for her, he"s away far more often than he"s not. This becomes even more heartbreaking when she reveals that she hangs up pictures of him not just because of her love. It"s so she doesn"t forget what he looks like.

While depressing, it becomes a new cấp độ of sadness when realizing that she spent years obsessing about his looks. His appearance was a huge part of why she first became interested in him. For her not lớn remember that only clues fans in on how ridiculously long Sasuke stays away from home.

Sasuke và Sakura Aren"t On The Same Page As Parents

Sakura is quite devoted lớn parenthood, while Sasuke isn"t. This comes khổng lồ the extreme that when running into his 12-year-old daughter, he doesn"t recognize her. Sakura tries to lớn spend time sharing information about her father without revealing the grueling, traumatic parts of his past lớn the young Sarada.

Sasuke simply says nothing khổng lồ her about it. Also, the few times Sasuke does train Sarada, Sakura has no clue và just gets surprised by her daughter"s new abilities in action. While 12 years apart takes a toll, Sakura & Sasuke should be nowhere near this disjointed as parents. They could at least trade pictures và give each other updates. Other couples in the series, lượt thích Shikamaru & Temari, openly discuss training their son with one another throughout the Boruto series.

The Uchiha head-poke gesture is an important part of Sasuke"s life. After all, it was something dear to him from before he lost his family. However, his use of the gesture with his own family is overstated. The head-poke has become his only go-to sign of affection.

While well-meant and meaningful, it hardly makes up for his negligence & resistance towards being a present husband và parent. It"s framed as such a monumental, sweet thing for him khổng lồ do, but it is just a small way to say he cares. A dễ thương head-poke doesn"t replace the years he chose to lớn not be with his family.

Sasuke"s Cool Reactions khổng lồ Sakura"s Confessions

Sakura confesses her feelings to lớn Sasuke twice. Once, when he first tries khổng lồ leave & join Orochimaru. The second is during the Fourth Shinobi War, khổng lồ encourage him khổng lồ stay. Her confessions are always said in desperation, trying to protect him or get him khổng lồ stay. Sakura pours out her heart lớn him.

Sasuke, however, often reacts lớn them coolly or with malice. The first one he reacted khổng lồ by calling her annoying. The second time, he calls her annoying again and then literally crushes her heart with his hand. Later, the show tries to lớn tell fans that Sasuke does love her, but after these terrible displays, it"s hard to lớn believe. Sasuke"s motivations in the Naruto series change so much though, that it"s hard lớn track when his feelings for her actually begin và whether his malice is just pushing her away to lớn protect her.

Though Sakura & Sasuke are married, their displays of affections are stunted at head pokes & side-hugs. This behavior makes sense with his personality, but hardly hers. Nontraditional methods of affections make sense for them, but there is a cấp độ of nontraditional that verges on platonic.

To be believable, the couple needs a few more ways of sharing their love & feelings, even if they are unique. Otherwise, they seem instead like friends with marriage và a kid. This hardly matches up with the deep levels of affection Sakura feels for Sasuke.

Sakura Treating naruto As a Replacement Boyfriend

At the beginning of Naruto Shippuden, Team 7 has disbanded khổng lồ train on their own terms, each with a different Sannin member. Sasuke remains with Orochimaru, but Sakura & Naruto reunite after two years apart. The two rekindle their friendship and recreate Team 7 with Sai.

Without Sasuke, Sakura spends most of her time with Naruto. She uses him lớn fill the void in her life, to lớn the point she goes on dates with him. She knows his feelings for her and knows she doesn"t reciprocate them but does it anyway. With Sakura"s devotion lớn loving Sasuke và Naruto"s friendship, she shouldn"t have done such a mixed-signaled, cruel thing lớn her best friend.

Sasuke leaves his family for 12 years to lớn go on missions. While he"s protecting their village, he is neglecting his wife & daughter. The least he could vì is write, send pictures back & forth, maybe know what his daughter looks like nowadays. However, Sasuke doesn"t even bởi vì that. Messages might be hard to lớn send và at some times could jeopardize missions, but there had lớn be times that communication was possible.

After all, he must be sending word back lớn Naruto about missions. It makes no sense that Sasuke couldn"t have sent his family sparse letters to lớn show them his love & affection.

Sasuke"s Poor Communication Skills

Though they love one another, Sasuke và Sakura have severe communication issues. Between parenting, going on missions, expressing feelings, all of it, Sasuke doesn"t often say the things he should. This communication issue comes to lớn a head during a moment in Sakura"s Hidden Novel. There are rumors circulating that Sasuke could be evil again.

She wants to defend him, but she has to lớn be honest that she doesn"t know. She hasn"t heard enough of him to answer the question honestly. Sakura"s inability to know if the man she loves is evil again reveals a glaring flaw in their relationship, one that doesn"t make much sense.

Sakura started loving Sasuke when she was a little girl. The crush sprang from his looks & his abilities. She saw how he was in class and became infatuated. The crush became nonsensical, though, when she chose to reject her best friend over him - when she obsessed about being on his team, his opinion, his growth & strengths as a ninja, & her thoughts always lingered to lớn him.

Young Sakura even keeps her appearance how she thinks he might like it, not how she"d prefer. Her crush grew into a deeper, more balanced love, where Sakura starts khổng lồ think more on her own. But her love for him did begin as obsessive, possessive, & nonsensical.

Sasuke và Sakura"s First Date Only Lasted 2.5 Minutes

In Boruto, Sakura và Ino go to lớn hang out at an overlook by the ocean. Her friend mentions that she knows this is where the Uchiha couple had their first date. Embarrassed, Sakura says it was only two and a half minutes. However, she admits the place brings back fond memories of him.

The place clearly means a lot khổng lồ her, just because she was there with Sasuke. Yet, their first date barely lasted a few bits of dialogue. After war and the world nearly ending, fans would think Sasuke might want lớn enjoy the company of his new love. Sasuke never seems lớn grow a thắm thiết side, though và remains distant as ever.

Sakura has a hard time, raising their daughter alone while Sasuke is far away. Though she insists their love is strong and they show their intimacy differently, she clearly struggles with several insecurities. At the mere suggestion that she"s not his wife, Sakura breaks down her own house with a punch lớn the ground. The question isn"t even from some rival or enemy - it"s from her frustrated và confused daughter.

If their love is as strong as she insists, Sakura shouldn"t be so easily sensitive about their relationship. However, she clearly is, and it shows how fragile her connection sometimes is with Sasuke.

Sasuke Never Puts Sakura First

Throughout Naruto, Sakura puts Sasuke before everything. Before her friendships, such as Ino và Naruto & ahead of her safety, trying to lớn bring him back home and, later, to over his madness. She put him in front of her future, even, as she sacrificed her shinobi lifestyle lớn become a good mother lớn his child.

On the opposite end, Sasuke never puts Sakura first. He may love her, but his priorities lie first and foremost with protecting the village và succeeding in his missions. Their love & marriage are painfully uneven, và it doesn"t make sense for a lasting union lớn be that way. Though, it seems lớn be the way they have decided to vày things.

After the Fourth Shinobi War, Sasuke leaves town lớn atone for his sins. The first time, he tells Sakura thank you và says he will come back home. Off-screen, he comes back khổng lồ visit and this time Sakura joins his journeys.

Though, to lớn follow Sasuke, Sakura had lớn abandon her life as a Konohakagure shinobi & follow whatever missions he might decide khổng lồ be on. She spent years training for her work and position, only lớn drop it all to lớn be by his side. As dedicated as she was, it makes no sense for her khổng lồ give up her life khổng lồ follow him. Especially when, later, he only leaves her all over again.

Sakura Continued lớn Love Sasuke When He Was Evil

At one point, Sasuke was an international criminal being hunted by almost all shinobi. He had committed heinous crimes against others, including attacks, theft, deception, and taking lives. Despite this, though, Sakura loves him. She says it"s because she sees the real him underneath it all, và hopes the person he was will return.

Even though it comes true, that belief is senseless. Sasuke cruelly attacked, insulted, & undermined her as a ninja and as a person during this time period. Sakura loving the old Sasuke makes sense, but the new one should have destroyed her romantic interest in him.

The most alarming & troubling fact about their relationship is that Sasuke tried khổng lồ destroy Sakura. When he was knee-deep in his quest for power, no one mattered but him and his brother. Neither of his two closest friends, na-ru-to or Sakura, would be allowed khổng lồ get in his way.

When Sakura begs for a second time to come back, that they could be happy together, he quite literally tries to lớn crush her heart. If her love for him hadn"t shattered before, that moment should have done it. However, the couple married regardless. True love conquers even purposefully endangering a partner"s life, it seems.
