While staying away from this, it would be good idea to show that some of the new main characters were capable of having a average normal long term relationship. Star Trek historically has been pretty piss poor in this area.
Most of the long-term relationships in Trek are depicted as long-term friendships rather than romantic couples.

The problem with romantic couples in Trek is that they tend to be a distraction to whatever the main story is, unless they are the main story. Otherwise, they are done just to give some characters something else to do when they're not saving the universe right then and there.
