If only two objects existed in the universe, would gravity pull them together eventually no matter how distant they are from one another given an infinite span of time to do so?

We’d really like to hope so. Unfortunately, when we look outward, we see whole galaxies accelerating away from us and not falling back in, so it appears that acceleration of the universe supersedes implosion. This means that dark energy trumps gravity! Still a head scratcher!
