Scarlett and Snake Eyes forever.
Other members said it very well already, but here's my similar take:
Snake Eyes may be the coolest and most popular Joe in history, but he's NOTHING on his own. If not for Mr Hamas excelent writing attaching him to two other important characters SE would be a simple gimmick character (like the sunbow series tried so hard to make him) that everybody would have forgotten years ago.
Snake Eyes would never have become a comic icon without two critical factors. Scarletts love, and Storm Shadows hate

I was pretty disappointed when she chooses duke. I'm on the comic side of canon. I've taken an excerpt from the comics wiki which explains their history succinctly.
"Eventually, Snake-Eyes rejoined his other wartime buddies when he was recruited into G.I. Joe. Once on the team, Snake-Eyes became very close to Scarlett. On a mission in the Middle East, Snake-Eyes, Scarlett, Rock 'n Roll and Grunt were sent to save George Strawhacker from COBRA. On the way, the helicopter they were in started to have trouble and was soon going to crash. It forced the Joes to bail out, but Scarlett was stuck in the burning helicopter and Snake-Eyes stayed behind to save her. Snake-Eyes did save Scarlett, but a window exploded in his face, scarring him and damaging his vocal cords (carrying Scarlett out of the wreck of the crashed helicopter, his head is actually on fire). Despite his injuries and the warning from Doc that unless he gets medical help immediately he may never speak again, Snake-Eyes convinced Hawk to let him continue on with the mission. He did so "without even saying a word." His reason for going forward was that George Strawhacker was once engaged to his sister--indeed, no one other than Snake-Eyes might have been able to rescue him from the mission. Strawhacker never learned who the "scarred, masked soldier" who saved his life was."

GiJoe fan to the core here. And here I thought GiJoe was about action. Oh well, too bad "neither" or "don't care" were not part of the list. With the lack of other option, I say: Duke.

For starters, I prefer Snake to Duke. That being said, I would rather have Scarlett with Duke and I will explain why. Snake is a loner, a man of mystery.
The following popular characters that are somewhat familiar to Snake and are better off without committed (keyword here is committed) romantic involvements are: Batman, Wolverine.
Bottom line, she might as well be with Duke.

Snake Eyes. Duke just seems as he can have any woman and it would make sense.

GI Joe is about action, but without great characters the action means nothing.
I fall on the Larry Hama/Marvel comic side of this debate, but I also don't think Scarlett or Snake Eyes would ever have a traditional romance, and neither would there ever be a "happy ending" to their relationship. Their situation is too complex for that.
But Scarlett with Duke? That's fairly unimaginative... it's like the head cheerleader going with the captain of the football team. Boring! Plus, I have never seen Duke as much of a character, just a stereotypical collection of idealized leadership traits and tough guy attitude. What is there to him or his background that makes him interesting?
I'm perfectly capable of enjoying something like Resolute though, since it seems to be it's own version of realitiy, apart from any other. Buy my favorite version of canon is without a doubt Hama's. Indeed, it's the only one I'd consider canon.
