Batgirl and Nightwing should be married already

It’s been nearly 50 years since Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon shared their first kiss in 1975’s Batman Family #1 written by Elliot S. Maggin and drawn by Mike Grell – and the two have had an on-again/off-again relationship ever since. But in current DC Universe continuity, they’re in a stable romantic relationship and they’ve even adopted a dog together, Haley, who’s affectionately nicknamed Bitewing.

And in Nightwing #98 by writer Tom Taylor and artist Bruno Redondo, which introduces the fifth dimensional imp (and Dick’s biggest/tiniest fan) Nite-MiteDick essentially reveals that he’s been thinking about marriage with Babs – but who’s surprised by that? The couple basically said their vows in Nightwing #96.

Nite-Mite shows up during an impromptu romantic weekend in the woods for Batgirl and Nightwing, which is only possible because they’re protecting a Blüdhaven mob boss until he can testify at a criminal trial.

Nightwing has been trying to clean up the city since he lost his memory – which he’s since recovered – and moved there, and Batgirl has been helping him every step of the way. They haven’t gotten a ton of one-on-one time, so at this point, they’ll take anything – but when Nite-Mite shows up, it officially gets weird. He’s obsessed with Dick, much like Bat-Mite is obsessed with Bruce Wayne, and he’s also a self-proclaimed Nightwing/Starfire shipper – but he mostly wants Dick to be happy, so he attempts to officiate a wedding on the spot.

Dick and Barbara both object, but Dick meets Nite-Mite with a “Not yet.” As in, “No, we shouldn’t get married yet, but we should get married at some point.” At least, that’s how we’re interpreting it.
