We think we are fascinated with TV couples because we have a lot of things to learn from them. They teach us how to improve our relationships and how to get along with each other properly.
Another reason why that is might be the fact that it’s easier to learn from the mistakes other couples make than from our own. Let’s not waste another minute and take a look at 20 of the best couples in TV shows.
1. Jim and Pam (The Office)
There never was and never will be a better couple – in a TV show or otherwise – than Jim and Pam. Watch The Office and you’ll see why. And keep some tissues handy, because there will be tears.
Seeing them evolve as a couple is as satisfying as being in a relationship yourself. Without a doubt, the most beautiful couple in all TV shows past, present or future.
2. Ross and Rachel (Friends)
Ross and Rachel have been on and off for the entire duration of the show, but they wound up together for good in the last season, much to the glee of the fans. Lobsters are lobsters, you know…
And for the love of God, don’t wait years until you finally tell your crush you’re in love with her. Do it now.
3. Ben and Leslie (Parks and Recreation)
There’s nothing better than watching two relatively deranged characters come together. Leslie and Ben show us that love can be a hilarious thing.
4. Carla and Turk (Scrubs)
One of the funniest and cutest couples on TV, without a doubt. They’ve been through their fair share of misfortune, too, but always came through.
5. Aragorn and Arwen (The Lord of the Rings)
Love is stronger than death, or at least makes the latter more tolerable. This is one of the things we’ve learned from LOTR’s Aragorn and Arwen. The two are absolutely fantastic together.
6. Peter and Lois (Family Guy)
Can you picture them apart? It’s less likely: they’re perfect for each other. The fact that their relationship often causes excessive laughing is a discussion for another time. Having some problems up there can be quite awesome.
7. Jack and Rose (Titanic)
True love is about sacrifice, and Jack has made the ultimate one. Watch the two parting and you have to be made of stone not to cry.
8. Monica and Chandler (Friends)
Initially, nobody would have seen these two getting together, but now nobody can see them apart. They prove it’s important to have a relationship in which one’s a joker and the other one brings the joker back to earth.
9. Dwight and Angela (The Office)
Probably the strictest (and absolutely most hysterical) couples you’ll ever see. Love works in mysterious ways when a partner owns a beet farm and the other one would rather farm cats.
10. Khal and Daenerys (Game of Thrones)
What started as pretty much a sexual abuse situation turned out to be a relationship that made fans of the show more than jealous. It probably has something to do with Momoa’s six-pack.
11. Glenn and Maggie (The Walking Dead)
Even though quite shortlived, the relationship between Glenn and Maggie was a major thing in the AMC legendary show until Glenn was introduced to a bat called Lucille by the man we love to hate and hate to love.
12. Noah and Allie (The Notebook)
One of the most beautiful couples on television and at the same time, lachrymose. However, love always wins, regardless of financial status.
13. The Beast and Belle (The Beauty and the Beast)
Physical appearance really doesn’t matter – this is what we’ve learned from these two. It’s all about what’s inside. There could be no top without this classic pair.
14. Damon and Elena (The Vampire Diaries)
There are people who watch this show solely for this beautiful couple of once-vampires that love each other with a fiery love.
15. Rick and Michonne (The Walking Dead)
We think it’s safe to say this was the least expected relationship in the show, but we’re happy it happened. Both are born warriors and willing to do whatever it takes to protect their family.
16. Jonathan and Nancy (Stranger Things)
We liked Steve, but not as much as we did Jonathan, a down-to-earth guy that really seems to be madly in love with Nancy for all the good reasons.
17. Heathcliff and Cathy (Wuthering Heights)
This pair is worth mentioning because it shows how destructive love can be sometimes. This is the kind of toxic relationship your parents warn you about when you go on your first date.
Even though theirs ends tragically, it’s one of the most famous couples in TV history, played formidably by Ralph Fiennes Juliette Binoche.
18. Laura and Shadow Moon (American Gods)
A dysfunctional relationship at best, but hey, they’re a couple, in spite of Laura’s horrific deed and the fact that she’s dead. We’ve chosen to present this in order for you to know what a “toxic” relationship really is.
19. Joel and Clementine (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind)
We’ve all loved this cult movie, and we loved the couple in it even more. Love always finds a way, a way that might not be apparent at first sight – this is a really important lesson we should all learn at some point or another.
20. Blaine and Kurt (Glee)
Sometimes it’s better to just do what your heart tells you right away. The two also prove that growing up is an important factor in keeping a relationship afloat.
Each of us has a favorite TV couple that makes us watch the particular show or movie it’s in a thousand times without getting bored. Obviously, there’s nothing bad with that.
Sometimes we need to see a relationship unfold before our eyes in order to know what it feels like to be truly in love: it’s great, but both partners have to work hard to keep things as they are. What’s your favorite couple out of the 20 we’ve mentioned and why?
