The story of Elizabeth and Meliodas is one of significant importance to fans all over the world. I was so curious about their on-and-off relationship that I started reading the SDS manga. And leaving the anime for the manga turned out to be much better than expected.
So, does Elizabeth get married to Meliodas?
In the final scene of Seven Deadly Sins, Elizabeth and Mleiodas get married, delivering a satisfying ending to the franchise. Their relationship, full of trials and difficulties, is finally set in stone.
1. Eli-odas Relationship Curse
To look at Meliodas and Elizabeth’s relationship, let’s take a journey to 3000 in the past. Elizabeth is the highest-ranked member of the goddess clan and is the daughter of the Supreme Deity.
She is also, in fact, the original incarnation of Elizabeth Liones and Meliodas’ lover from 3000 years ago. Meliodas, on the other hand, is the Demon King’s eldest son and highest-ranking member in the demon clan.
Meliodas ended up falling in love with Elizabeth from the opposing clan. He ended up betraying his clan and killing two of the Ten Commandments. This deeply angered the demon king and the demon clan.
On the other side, Ludociel, the leader of the Archangels, blinded by his bloodthirst for the demon clan, took this opportunity to start a war. The Holy War. Even though the two didn’t want this to happen, the Supreme Deity and The Demon King punished both for starting this war and betraying their clans.
The Demon King cursed Elizabeth to reincarnate as a human, and when every time she dies, she reincarnates but without any of her memories. If she remembers any memories from her past life, she will die in another three days. And the saddest part is that every time she dies, it will be in front of Meliodas.
The Supreme Deity cursed Meliodas to become immortal. This may seem like a boon at first, but there is a catch. Every time Meliodas dies, he loses his emotions to his father, the Demon King.
These emotions are then imprisoned in Purgatory, and his emotionless self will become more controllable by his father. Meliodas has already seen Elizabeth die 106 times. Elizabeth Liones is the 107th incarnation of Elizabeth, the goddess.
2. What are the Effects of the Curse?
As mentioned above, whenever Elizabeth dies, she loses all her memories. This forces her and Meliodas’ relationship to restart every single time. On the other hand, the curse has a significant effect on Meliodas.
Whenever he loses a few of his emotions, Meliodas undergoes a massive change. His personality changes drastically whenever he uses the black mark, and he becomes more ruthless and even sadistic.
During his fight with Fraudrin, Meliodas sadistically toys around with his enemy, leading him to falsely believe that he may have a chance at winning the fight. He then revels in his rival’s pain and despair upon finding out that he would never win.
3. Do they Break the Curse?
The only way to break the curse is by finding someone who can rival the power of the Demon King and the Supreme Deity themselves.
During the Holy War, Meliodas found a way to break both curses after escaping from Purgatory. After the Demon King was dispelled from his body, Meliodas finally broke both curses, setting themselves free.
Due to the awakening of his power, Meliodas became the new Demon King and could no longer remain in the Mortal Plane due to his extreme levels of power.
Meliodas then surprises us all by giving up his power to cancel out the ten commandments to ensure his father never returns. Thus, Meliodas once again returns to Britannia.
4. How Do They Get Married?
After the threat of the demon king and Cath had died down, Meliodas and Elizabeth planned and got married to each other. Soon they took up Bartra’s offer and became the kingdom’s new rulers.
The two were always meant to be a couple. Their love for each other has even survived through Elizabeth’s countless reincarnations. So, what could beat love that transcends even the bounds of time?
5. When Do We See Their Child?
Meliodas and Elizabeth end up having a child whose name is Tristan. He makes a short appearance in the finale of the series.
He’s an extraordinarily wild and energetic kid. Just like most are at the age. He’s got a strong sense of justice and longs to protect his kingdom, including his father and the other sins, especially after finding out about how they were framed.
He says that he doesn’t want to become the next ruler. Instead, he’ll become one of the seven deadly sins.
