I agree with a lot of what you say -- at least in theory. As we know, all of these couples were great because they were made from great characters -- characters who stood on their own and were complex and compelling before they found life partners. So you're right that they would also stand well on their own again without those partners. We know that.
In theory, it would be interesting. But the sad reality is that we've already seen what these writers do when they break up a couple and move them on separately. It starts with HOW they break them up (e.g., Jack's off-screen walkabout or Steve's off-screen career move or John's incredibly stupid plan or Bo's lame unexplained absence). Right there, they immediately write those people and that relationship out of character. Then they proceed to dumb down one or the other of them while totally decimating the integrity of the other. And THEN, after they've totally ruined any semblance of the great characters and couples we once knew, they will quickly backburner or eject them from the canvas without giving them (or us) a chance to recover. It's a total waste.
I would love to have some of these beloved characters back -- whether they're together or apart. But not like this where it has no point and makes no sense and goes nowhere.
