After reading our previous article about the best couples on the small screen, you kept coming up with more and more duos who should have made the cut. Well, you’re right! There simply wasn’t enough room for everyone in one article. So, we proudly present you with part 2 of the best romances seen on TV.
Jessica & Luke — Jessica Jones
There's nothing more touching and beautiful than seeing two souls that were meant for each other meet for the first time, even if they don't know it yet. In Jessica Jones, Jessica and Luke don't start out friendly, but soon enough, they can't resist their attraction towards each other.
Just looking at the two is enough to know they couldn't be with any other person. Both are physically and mentally stronger than most people, and they will always be there to protect each other.
J.D. & Elliot — Scrubs
Their on-and-off romance drove us crazy, but at least by the end of the sixth season, the two seemed like they were ready to be together. In the show's ninth season we learn that the two ended up getting married and are about to welcome a child into the world.
What makes this couple so loveable and great? Simply put, the two are best friends before they are lovers.
Josh & Liza — Younger
While the idea of a younger man dating an older woman has been around since 1967's "The Graduate" it was only in 2015 that we got to see one of the best May-December relationships on TV.
Josh offers Liza the kind of love many of us can only dream of, he accepts her for who she is and supports her in achieving her dreams. When the show ended, the two weren't together, but the writers did give us some hope that they will rekindle their romance in the future.
Snow & Prince Charming — Once Upon a Time
How could we not include Snow and Prince Charming in this list? Not only do the two belong to a classic romantic fairytale, the actors who portrayed them, Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas are married in real life, and it shows.
Snow and the Prince did not have an easy time, but love isn't about what's easy, it's about conquering obstacles together, and the two have definitely done that throughout the show.
Jamie & Claire — Outlander
While TV shows always produce great love stories, not many characters are as loyal as Jamie is to Clair in Outlander.
Not only are the two loyal, but they also support each other while always showing love and passion, regardless of whether they are in their 20s or 50s If you find a man like Jaime in real life, please let us know ASAP.
Sutton & Richard — The Bold Type
We don't usually support relationships that start in secret, but when it's right, it's right! What's not to love about this couple? From their accidental meet-cute to their blazing intimacy, it's hard not to root for the two.
While at first they were scared of the repercussions of telling everyone about their romance, they ended up telling everyone and getting married.
Rory & Jess — Gilmore Girls
Rory, the youngest of all Gilmore Girls, had three major relationships throughout the show’s run. But, the shortest connection out of the three is the one fans still think about to this day.
Good-girl Rory Dating too-smart-for-his-own-good, bad boy Jess is what TV romance is made of. Jess and Rory's relationship is so enviable because the two always knew how to challenge each other, which is a beautiful aspect of relationships we don't often get to see on screen.
Sam & Gabe — Dear White People
Sam is proud and vocal about social justice but hides a secret from her friends, she's dating Gabe, a privileged white guy. As comedic as it sounds, the show takes the relationship between the two very seriously.
While they don't always agree with each other about each and every issue, the two always respect each other. Their romance is difficult at times, but they just love each other too much to let anything get in the way.
Soso & Poussey — Orange Is the New Black
Orange Is the New Black gave us lots of relationships to choose from, and we chose Soso and Poussey! Why do we love them so much? Firstly, no one expected they would get together.
They found a common ground because they both have similar struggles that allow them to understand each other in a way no one else could. Secondly, have you seen the spark between the two? It lights a fire in our hearts every time we rewatch the show!
Harriette & Carl — Family Matters
When we think of Family Matters, most of us think about Steve Urkel, the show's goofiest character. But, the show’s heart was actually the beautiful relationship between Carl and Harriete.
Carl tends to get in trouble, but Harriette is always there for him, not to judge him, but to give advice and be the reasonable one. These two just have the type of personalities that balance each other out and it's so much fun to watch!
Jake & Amy — Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Jake is a jokester and Amy likes to play by the rules, but despite this major difference in their nature, the two have indisputable chemistry. Their banter is a big part of what makes the show a delight to watch.
This isn’t just the regular case of opposites attract, but the two also manage to get along with each other and understand the other person’s perspective, even when it's hard.
Carol & Mike — The Brady Bunch
While the show's main focus was on how Carol and Mike function as loving parents to their children, we could still see the affection between the husband and wife.
When they weren't busy giving advice to their children, you could see that the two were singing to each other, giving each other small gifts, and performing sweet gestures. That's how you keep a long-term relationship blooming.
Chidi & Eleanore — The Good Place
If there was ever proof that soulmates exist, it would be Chidi and Eleanore's love story. No matter how many times their memories get rebooted, the two always find a way back to each other.
Their connection isn’t about circumstances or nostalgia, but about choosing each other over and over again, which is what many long-term married couples say love is all about.
Phil & Vivian — The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
And now, for a classic ‘90s sitcom: The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. While the show centered around Will’s adventures, Phil and Vivian were always there, in the background, serving as a magnificent example of a great marriage and family life.
They can disagree with each other and remain in love, and while they discuss real-world problems without sugarcoating anything, they still know how to be sweet and kind to each other.
David & Patrick — Schitt’s Creek
Schitt’s Creek follows a rich family that loses everything and is forced to move to... well... Schitt’s Creek. The show gave us David and Patrick, one of the best TV couples ever.
Watching David fall in love with Patrick was pure joy, and having the show's final season mostly dedicated to the couple's wedding just sent us over the moon.
Sergio & Raquel — Money Heist
Are there still men like Sergio out there? The type of man who will fight the government for you because he thinks they have gotten rid of you? The type of man who will come up with an elaborate scheme to get you out of jail?
Well, admittedly, we don't all really NEED this type of man, but he's great fun to watch on TV. While we only see the two together in flashbacks, we are still hopeful for this beautiful couple.
Daphne & Simon — Bridgerton
Bridgeton hit Netflix like a storm, and all of a sudden everyone was talking about it. While some don’t support this couple, it is almost impossible not to be on their side. It's true that the two have very different personalities and outlooks on life, but we have already learned that opposites attract!
Not only are they on the same intellectual level, but they also have incredible chemistry and passion, making them an unforgeable TV couple.
Grey Worm & Missandei — Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones gave us many couples to choose from, so what makes this one so special? Firstly, we loved seeing how awkward the two could get next to each other.
Secondly, Grey Worm and Missandei have the ability to be completely honest with each other, and they are not afraid to ask each other anything. Every time the two have to go their separate ways, you can see the two are incredibly sad about having to be apart, which is what love is all about.
Gretchen & Jimmy — You’re the Worst
The title of the show tells you everything you need to know — publicist Gretchen and novelist Jimmy are not the type of people you'd want to be around in real life.
Despite the fact it might be hard for us to imagine dating either one of them, the two have indisputable chemistry, and it is obvious they are just meant to be.
David & Keith — Six Feet Under
David and Keith's bond wasn't just heartwarming, it was also revolutionary. Six Feet Under handled a lot of complex, important themes, and one of them was that of a committed relationship between two men.
The couple defied the stereotypes viewers at the time had about gay couples. The two adopted children together and even went to couple's therapy, showing that their relationship isn't that different than one between a man and a woman.
Louise & George — The Jeffersons
While the show originally started as a spin-off, it took on a life of its own. The two main characters, George and Louise Jefferson had an enviable marriage. Played by Sherman Hemsley and Isabel Sanford, the couple found their way from the bottom into a life full of leisure.
Despite these drastic changes they always stuck together, and always supported each other. In four words: they’re a great team. That's what we all want out of a relationship.
Logan & Veronica — Veronica Mars
When Veronica Mars first aired, there was no plan for her and bad boy Logan to end up together. It was actually the incredible chemistry between Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring that made writers change their original plan.
Fans of the teen Neo-Noir show from the early 2000s swear by this couple, who even has the ultimate ship name: LoVe. While they have seen many ups and downs, at their best, the two had honest communication and a deep understanding of one another.
Tara & Willow — Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Tara and Willow are one of the show’s most liked couples, and for a good reason, the two were actually the first-ever representation of a lesbian relationship on screen.
The two fell in love with each other, sang a beautiful romantic song during the musical episode, and lived together. The couple saw a tragic ending when Tara died prematurely. Despite their tragic ending, the relationship gave hope to many young viewers.
Jack & Kate — Lost
Lost was a show that got everyone glued to the screen, wondering what will come next. While many fans were left disappointed with the show's ending, they still cherished the fiery romance between Jack and Kate.
Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly, who portrayed the characters, had undeniable chemistry. While the two didn't end up together, their romance was one of the most enticing relationships seen on TV at the time.
Fran & Maxwell — The Nanny
Back in the '90s, we all watched the Nanny because of Fran Drahcer's charisma and charm. Like any show where a nanny comes in to take care of the children of a widowed man, romance ensued. But it took a long time — only in the fifth season did they finally get engaged.
Being married and having twins together didn't stop them from being playful with each other, as Fran still called Max "Mr. Sheffield."
Felicity & Ben — Felicity
Talk about a complicated love story! Felicity and Ben’s is anything but typical. Initially, Felicity fell in love with Ben in high school, even though they never spoke to each other. On a whim, she decides to follow him all the way to New York, to his college of choice.
Everyone wanted the two to end up together, and they almost did, but the final episode saw her choosing Noel instead. Still, they'll always have a special place in our teenage hearts.
David & Maddie — Moonlighting
In Moonlighting, David and Maddie had to work together, which is what made the show so much fun to watch. The characters were discovering each other as we the viewers were discovering them. The conflicts between the two are often what gave the show its spark.
Their relationship was all about adventure, courage, and living on the edge. While maybe this isn't the relationship we'd want to have for the rest of our lives, it was definitely a pleasure to watch.
Bette & Tina– The L Word
There is a lot that can be said about Bette and Tina, but their turbulent connection stood the test of time, and the two ended up getting married and having a daughter named Angie together.
Tina loves Bette so much that she is willing to sacrifice a lot for her, and she never complains about doing so. Bette and Tina’s love reminds us that sometimes love is found, not in the big gestures, but in the small sacrifices one makes every day.
Chuck & Blair – Gossip Girl
Gossip Girl is a show that gave us so many different wonderful couples to choose from, but no couple is as beloved as Blair and Chuck. The rich bad boy and queen B didn’t get along from the get-go, but every time they spoke to each other, sparks flew.
The two don’t have what we’d call the healthiest relationship, but it is the passion these two have for each other that makes them one of TV's greatest couples
Olivia & Fitz - Scandal
Despite the fact the show has already ended years ago, we still can’t stop thinking about Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and Fitzgerald Grant. While the two had a rocky relationship, they also know everything about each other and are just meant to be together.
Fans have not ceased wondering what happened to their chosen couple from Scandal. We have a hunch that the two are still together, being their best selves next to each other.
Sandy & Kirsten – The O.C.
Sandy and Kirsten are the parents of Seth and Ryan. We don’t usually like to think of our parents as the romantic interest, but this couple has a great marriage and a sweet meetup story.
Attending Berkeley as a liberal, Sandy’s interest in Democratic politics meets Kirsten’s Republican leanings, and the chemistry works! The two are the backbone of the story, the adults in the O.C. drama narrative, and a loveable couple.
Blaine & Kurt – Glee
This musical sitcom is all about feel-good drama, and Blaine and Kurt bring exactly that with their relationship. From their first kiss to their first dance at the prom, it’s all about friendship and love.
There are ups and downs, but in the end, they survive their long-distance relationship. Their tender relationship spans the show’s six seasons and ends with the grand finale of a happily ever after vow.
Jane & Michael – Jane the Virgin
Jane the Virgin, a parody of Spanish-language soap operas, centers around, you guessed it, Jane. Michael’s her love interest, but then there’s Rafael... In a twist of telenovela irony, Jane gets pregnant completely by accident when she’s mistakenly artificially inseminated by her OB/GYN.
When Michael admits he doesn’t want to raise another man’s baby, it brings them closer. Good timing, since it happened on their wedding day.
David & Donna – Beverly Hills 90210
David and Donna are soul mates and best friends from high school, and one of 90210’s most memorable relationships. Donna, taking a very traditional track, tells David early in their relationship she wants to save herself for marriage.
They nearly made it, but she saved it for college graduation night, instead. These two were on-again-off-again, but marry in the end—they tie the knot in the show’s series finale.
April & Andy — Parks and Recreation
Parks and Recreation was a great show. But April and Andy kinda made it what it was. These two lovebirds are so adorably sweet that their synergy actually became a driving factor of the show’s appeal. Between April’s quirkiness and Andy’s ability to get her to crack a smile, they create an endearing dynamic that’s fun, but not annoying.
One time, Andy says the sweetest thing to April, “You’re like an angel with no wings.” Deadpan, April answers back, “So, like a person.” He loves it. Parks and Recreation wouldn't have been the same without them.
Cece & Schmidt – New Girl
Schmidt and Cece’s relationship is far from conventional, at least that’s how it starts out. In fact, don’t call it a relationship. Or even “adorable.” According to Schmidt: “We are not adorable. We’re just two people having casual, successful, sex.”
It gets traditional eventually, but not until the end of season five. After marriage, comes the conventional house, and then the requisite child.
Florida & James – Good Times
Florida and James epitomize the distinctive black marriage—a strong woman with a respectful and doting husband. When these two bicker, they get into deep subjects. After James refers to Florida’s way as being a “women’s-libber”, she tells him, “James, women’s lib don’t mean we want to stop being women, it just means we want our chance in this world too.”
This ’70s show bleeds of the social consciousness of the day, and Florida and James are one of TV’s most inspirational couples, regardless of the times.
Pam & Jim – The Office
Pam and Jim are, by far, the cutest workplace relationship on TV. This couple adores each other, and instead of irony and teasing, they’re just totally sweet. Loving, caring and funny, we love their chemistry.
They’re best friends, and their interludes are a romantic relief to the comedic routines. Public Displays of Affection (PDA) between these two are not against office policy, they’re celebrated.
Pacey & Joey – Dawson’s Creek
We love Pacey and Joey because they represent the quintessential teenage love story. Full of spit and vinegar toggled with gooey romantic attraction, it’s got adolescent angst all the way to the bone. An on-again-off-again love triangle contributes to the will-they-or-won’t-they suspense.
The tension, whether it’s a love scene or another bicker and fight brawl is equally passionate. They break up, grandly, and then literally sail off to sea, romantically, in a sailboat, into the sunset. Can’t get more cliché-perfect than that!
Rainbow & Dre – Black-ish
This couple is the centerpiece of Black-ish. They are the parents of a wealthy middle-class family committed to love. Think polar opposites of Cookie and Luscious, and you’re on the right track. Mom’s a doctor and dad’s an ad exec who tries to instill the values of black culture into his children.
Rainbow and Dre’s affections are sweet. When their perfect marriage is challenged, they keep it real and work on their relationship. They get their “flow” back and that’s all that matters.
Jackie & Kelso – That ’70s Show
Jackie and Kelso are a dingbat couple, but they’re so much fun. Here they are heading out on a date: “You can’t just maul me in front of my father,” Jackie complains. Kelso answers, “He didn’t even notice.” Jackie returns, “He yelled at you to stop it.” And Kelso, “Oh, I thought he was talking to you.” Corny but sweet.
They have trouble staying together because they’re continuously two-timing each other, but the makeups are amorous. They split in the end. The good news is they’re together in real life.
Kitty & Red – That ’70s Show
Quite possibly the least romantic couple on the list, Kitty and Red do have their moments. Red’s response to Kitty’s request for certain relationship goals is: “Kitty, I want us to grow old and withdraw into ourselves.” He’s a bit insensitive, but he gives in.
While Red, a stereotypical Navy man who served in the Great War and the Korean War, is allergic to emotion, Kitty is like his foil. Playing the loving mom and wife, she’s a dutiful housewife who manages him—they’re a great comedy team.
Ryan & Marissa – The O.C.
Troubled and dysfunctional, this is a couple who have a lot in common. They do better when they’re together, but, like many on-again-off-again love stories, those times are few and far between. But, then again, so tender when they happen.
Their friendships with Summer and Seth are also sweet. Ryan and Marissa were made for each other, and you realize this as she dies in his arms.
Cory & Topanga – Boy Meets World
Cory and Topanga’s high school sweetheart romance is a sweet, traditional love story. The very Disney storyline with melodramatic breakups, punctuated by sweet and syrupy makeups, culminates, finally, with their high school graduation marriage.
However, there's a twist. Topanga is the one who proposes, and also the one who stole the first kiss. No spoiler alert here, Boy Meets World was filmed from 1993 to 2000.
Rachel & Ross – Friends
One of our favorite and most memorable ’90s TV couples is Ross and Rachel. For ten seasons, the darling duo, on-again-off-again, melted our hearts and then teased us with their dramatic flare-ups. In season four, the rollercoaster-like storyline takes a diving dip all the way to the altar, with Ross marrying Emily.
But things take a sharp turn when Ross slips up on the vows, and in front of Rachel and the congregation says, “I, Ross, take thee, Rachel...” It all ends happily ever after. Ross and Rachel have a baby together and ultimately get back in each other's arms. Aww!
Stef & Lena – The Fosters
These two may be an unconventional couple, but they sealed the longest “I do” kiss ever. And, as a married couple raising kids, it’s a genuine nod toward the LGBT community.
Stef and Lena have all the fights and concerns of the average, traditional, split-marriage dynamic complicated with stepmoms and divorced parents, and that message is spot on. It’s about love.
Caleb & Hanna – Pretty Little Liars
This TV couple has a wild and passionate love story, that is, once the romantic tension finally breaks. Hanna plays hard to get in this high school boy-gets-girl dance. On top of that, creating more tension, when she falls for him, they have to hide their relationship.
Once it’s out in the open, drama pulls these two apart, breaking hearts. After surviving trust issues and other relationship challenges, they have a happy ever after ending.
Carrie & “Mr. Big” – Sex and the City
A mixture of coincidence and fate tumble these two together. Carrie is one of four mature women whose sex lives make up the show, but her dynamic with the enigmatic Mr. Big is super compelling. The long-running show was instrumental in putting HBO on the network TV map, and this relationship was key.
Carrie and Mr. Big’s dynamic is a humorous parlay of banter and quips from sweet to cruel. How does Mr. Big say “I love you” for the first time? “I fuc&ing love you!” Naturally, they keep us watching.
Leslie & Ben – Parks and Recreation
Local government was never so entertaining until state auditor, Ben, and parks and recreation head, Leslie, are forced to hide their love behind a no-relationship PDA policy in a little town called Pawnee. The nerdy couple committed to laws and regulations are adorable to watch, and viewers can’t help cheering their marital union.
When Ben finds out they’re having triplets in season six, his look at their personal, financial future expenses graphically tripling is endearing, especially as he hides his concern from Leslie.
Tony & Carmela – The Sopranos
While Carmela’s no match for Cookie, she does live the wealthy crime family lifestyle with her head-honcho man. Even though Tony has his downfalls, like is expected of any serious mob boss, they make it work somehow.
No matter the circumstances, they seem to always have each others' backs. And they do have very sweet, touching moments. As a TV couple, they’re unforgettable. So, of course, Tony and Carmela Soprano make the list!
Archie & Edith – All in the Family
Archie can be mean and nasty. He’s the stereotypical grumpy old man with some serious anger issues, but he’s pretty funny, too. How Edith remains married to him is, at times, incomprehensible.
His humor can be crude, yet we love this couple because they’re hilarious together. All in the Family is one of the seventies' most classic sitcoms. As a couple, Archie and Edith are timeless.
Eric & Donna – That ’70s Show
Donna’s the girl next door and Eric’s her doting boyfriend. This sitcom TV couple is cute, funny, and affectionate. We love their friendship, it’s like watching puppies play.
Their playful dynamic fits in perfectly with That ’70s Show friends group, hanging out in the basement or venturing out.
Jesse & Becky – Full House
Full House is chock-full of happy days, and Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky’s relationship is perfect in that way. Even their fights are cute and syrupy. The long-running show, watching the children grow, became an American household TV staple.
It’s happily ever after, for real, when Jesse and Becky get married and have twins. And these are the reasons audiences are drawn to this warm and endearing show.
Mindy & Danny – The Mindy Project
The Mindy Project is another TV show taking place in a hospital, but Mindy and Danny don’t fall in love at first sight. In fact, they hated each other when they first met.
One thing leads to another, and the two OB/GYNs fall head over heels in love with each other. It’s one “aww” moment after another.
Betty & Jughead – Riverdale
This teen drama, based on the Archie comics courtesy of the CW, is Riverdale. Betty and Jughead, a mystery-solving duo from Riverdale, came from opposite sides of the tracks. It’s hard to resist rooting for these two in love amidst conflict.
Like Jughead said, “I wish we could just go. Just hop on the motorcycle, and just leave Riverdale. Go some place where there’s no Northside or Southside or Serpents, Ghoulies.” Betty’s response: “Ya. Romeo and Juliet, but we live happily ever after instead.” It’s pretty much what happens, in the end.
Seth & Summer – The O.C.
The cutest couple ever. This teenage romance keeps it real, but Seth’s quirky personality really gives it the extra “aww” to make it absolutely adorable. From a childhood crush on the girl-next-door to head-over-heels true love, the couple adds a lot to The O.C.
Like that one indelible scene. Seth is suspended by the ankles, hanging upside-down wearing a Spiderman mask, and they kiss in the pouring rain. Funny. Cute. And, oh so sweet.
Marissa & Alex – The O.C.
Back in The O.C. are Alex and Marissa. More of an experimental tryst than a relationship, Alex and Marissa get together in the second season.
Resulting, in part, from Marissa’s tendency toward risky behavior and her teenage rebellion against her parents, the girls become more than “just friends.” Seth is left waiting in the wings. Ryan’s off somewhere in the distance.
Alice & Ralph – The Honeymooners
This ’50s-era comedy duo played a married, working-class couple. She keeps up the apartment and he works as an N.Y.C. bus driver. She’s got a women’s rights perspective and advocates the merits of modernity, he’s a conservative who won’t buy a TV or modern conveniences like an electric refrigerator.
He may be stingy with his money, but the couple is generous with hilarious digs and comedic banter. Alice and Ralph are a classic TV couple.
Randall & Beth – This Is Us
Randall and Beth are the couple we all wish we could be. And by this, we mean an adorable meet-up story leading to an ideal marriage.
Add a strong and independent woman respected and cherished by a doting gentleman to the mix, and you’ve got the quintessential twenty-first-century couple. Real-life or TV.
Winnie & Kevin – The Wonder Years
Quite possibly the sweetest and most innocent TV couple ever screened, Winnie and Kevin melt hearts. The coming-of-age drama wouldn’t be the Wonder Years without them. The adult voice-over narration to Kevin’s story, especially of Winnie and his relationship, makes the story of their childhood friendship memorable and endearing.
The two grow up together, and it’s one “aww” moment after another with these two.
Shawn & Angela – Boy Meets World
Shawn and Angela are a darling teen TV couple. Shawn dotes and falls in love with Angela, their first date falls, romantically, on Valentine’s Day.
Boy Meets World is a show about relationships, and these two are a wonderful pair. They seem like a perfect match but go their separate ways in the end. Yet, their parting is civil and sweet.
Sookie & Bill – True Blood
This couple is far from conventional. True Blood comes to us from the supernatural horror genre, so vampires like Bill and telepathic waitresses like Sookie get together. Their passion’s hot and heavy. Vampires are like that.
It can’t last, given his monster background, but Sookie and Bill, the actors who play them, are together in real life. So, there’s a happy ending anyway.
Aria & Ezra – Pretty Little Liars
It was love at first sight for Ezra and Aria. The only problem is Ezra is Aria’s high school English teacher. But wait! Resist judgment. It’s not his fault. Not exactly. Aria lied and said she was a college student when they first met.
And we totally forgive them, they’re such an adorably sweet couple. Plus, it’s called Pretty Little Liars, and Aria’s very pretty. What else can you expect?
Zack & Kelly – Saved by the Bell
This afterschool TV teen program is all about high school drama at Bayside High. Zack and Kelly are that couple — the epicenter of the high school cool clique. All kinds of memories ensue.
Remember the time he flew the “I love Kelly” sign in the sky? In the series finale, they tie the knot in Vegas.
Tami & Coach Taylor – Friday Night Lights
It’s about football. It’s about the South. But mostly it’s about the marriage of Tami and Eric Taylor and the importance of relationships. The good ones.
In Friday Night Lights, Tami and Eric Taylor married early and stick it out through the proverbial thick and thin, giving in and giving up for each other. One of the best TV married couples, American style.
Marshall & Lily – How I Met Your Mother
A beautiful couple viewers can’t help falling in love with, Marshall and Lily meet in the dorms on the first day of college and are thenceforth self-identified by one word: Adorable.
With “aww” inspiring scenes in practically every episode, their sweetness toward each other is contagious. Even their efforts to have a baby are cute as heck.
Serena & Dan – Gossip Girl
This teen beat TV drama, one of the CW’s best pop soaps, takes place in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The show’s accolades of critical acclaim included reviews like, “Every Parent’s Nightmare” and “Mind-Blowingly Inappropriate.” In Gossip Girl, Dan, from a lower-class Brooklyn boys’ school, is serendipitously brought together with Serena amongst the high society of privileged teens.
Serena, a debutante with a socialite mom, falls in love with Dan. It seems all wrong, but it’s all right. It’s a bumpy ride, but they marry in the final season.
Luke & Lorelai – Gilmore Girls
This show is officially a mother-daughter relationship story, but the love story between Luke and Lorelai draws us in. It’s on-again-off-again. The Gilmore Girls dramedy keeps fans hoping the two will stay together.
Moments like Lorelai singing, karaoke, “I Will Always Love You” with Luke in the audience, as the obvious mark, create that vibe. Warm and fuzzy.
Jordan & Angela – My So-Called Life
My So-Called Life ran for just two seasons, but Angela and Jordan managed to become an item. Set at Liberty High School in a Pittsburgh-area suburb, Jordan and Angela juggle their persistent magnetism.
They have an image to uphold, an ego to preserve; typical high school obstacles, but they’re attracted to each other as well. In the series finale, Angela chooses Jordan over another boy.
Buffy & Angel – Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Supernatural love is adorable too. Buffy’s a monster slayer, Angel’s a vampire; they seem like an impossible match. But their chemistry makes the fan-favorite love story happen, as tragic as it is.
Being in love with a vampire is not a fate simply sewn. When he turns, he turns viciously.
Meredith & Derek – Grey’s Anatomy
Everything’s in the way of these two getting together, but, like a magnet, they can't help being inevitably drawn to each other.
It takes near-death experiences to bring these two hapless lovers together for good, but what else would you expect in an emergency room setting? The proposal, finally, is as sterile as the hospital walls, but it leaves fans ecstatic.
Lucy & Ricky – I Love Lucy
The funniest couple ever. Lucy and Ricky Ricardo became the most-watched TV couple in the 1950s. On I Love Lucy, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz played themselves. Every week, Lucy’s riotously entertaining plots to prove to Ricky she’s a bona fide entertainer ended in a mortifying catastrophe. In response, Ricky’s Cuban-accented, “Luuuuucy!” prompted one of television’s most memorable lines.
Facing her sheepish pout, Ricky would invariably shout, “You got some ‘splaining to do!” The show kept people in stitches. It made you wonder what their real-life marriage was like.
Paul & Jamie – Mad About You
This married couple kept us amused for seven seasons. Starting off as a newlywed twosome, Paul and Jamie were as loving as they were funny. Their heartwarming chemistry makes you want their kind of relationship. From their N.Y.C. apartment, they made entertainment out of day-to-day minutia.
In the final season, they have a daughter named Mabel. Though the show’s been off the air for almost two decades, a reboot is in the works with the pair playing empty-nesters instead of newlyweds. Jamie and Paul might be back!
Cookie & Luscious – Empire
She’s one tough cookie and he’s an entertainment/crime mogul. Together they’re a hardcore couple unmatched but for the likes of, well, nothing comes to mind. Toughened by spending seventeen years in the joint, most reasonable people do not mess with Cookie, who also knows her way around the hip hop industry.
Luscious and Cookie are a perfect match—Luscious, seemingly, the only person able to withstand her vitriol and bring the sweet out. But the two are a power couple who lead Empire Entertainment and occasionally battle each other like Hera versus Zeus.
Jon & Ygritte – Game of Thrones
Jon Snow and Ygritte have one of the more unusual meetup stories. It happens in the midst of a bloody battle. Ygritte nearly confronted Jon in an ax fight. In time, they turn into one of the most passionate TV couples ever.
When they fight, Jon may end up with an arrow in his back, but when they love, it’s equally fierce. Forbidden and fateful, the love of Game of Thrones characters Jon Snow and wildling Ygritte captured audiences worldwide.
Doug & Carrie – King of Queens
Carrie and Doug are a cute married couple. No drama, no romantic tension, the Heffernans are just a working-class couple chilling at home in their Queens, New York apartment. Their banter is clever and entertaining as the two make their way around married life.
Carrie’s always looking for ways to improve their relationship while Doug’s set on ways to maintain the status quo.
Doug & Carol – ER
There’s probably only one word to describe this pair: Soulmates. ER was an astounding ’90s show and this couple was a memorable audience favorite. The nurse and doctor duo are adorable, funny, and perfect together.
Their dialog spars sweetly with quick-witted quips. They get together, have twins, break up and get back together again. Exactly as fans would have it.
Mitchell & Cameron – Modern Family
This hilarious sitcom would not be the same without Mitch and Cam. Their nontraditional matchup is just adorable. Mitch and Cam’s mutual love is uber-apparent, however, criticism from the LGBT community complained the two weren’t affectionate enough.
The writers of the show eventually responded, and the episode, “The Kiss,” appeased the critics. All good things must end. Modern Family ended after its eleventh season.
Monica & Chandler – Friends
These two fall passionately in love and it’s adorable. It’s also hilarious as they try to hide it from all of their friends. They had to go through different proposals to make things official, though. First, there was the much less conventional bet at shooting dice in a Vegas casino, saying they would get married if they win. And then, as traditional as Chandler could get, down on one knee, “Monica, will you marry me?”. Of course, there were the obligatory mutual cold feet to handle too.
The relationship tension seesaws back and forth like this until the official, traditional romantic proposal. It’s hard not to love these two.
