These are the types of couples on TV shows that you can’t help but love. Either for the fact that they’d make hilarious/amazing parents or the simple fact that they seem to just go together perfectly. Here’s some of my personal favorites that I’ve grown to love over the years.
Cliff and Claire from The Cosby Show
All opinions about Bill Cosby aside – the character he played in this show made the perfect husband. Claire was the ideal mom and she didn’t take Cliff’s crap. He didn’t boss her around and she didn’t sit around and make dinner for him. She was a hard working lawyer and he was a doctor. They were the first and have been really the only above class African American family on television. They are both iconic characters who showed love to each other in so many ways. They both respected each other which is exactly how relationships should be.
Luke and Lorelai from Gilmore Girls
Even though she fought it for many years – from the first episode, it was clear this pair would end up together. They bicker all the time but they banter back and forth like an old married couple and it’s hilarious and sweet. Luke is the only guy in Stars Hallow who can up with Lorelai. They also were close friends before they became involved which is important.
Lilly and Marshall from How I Met Your Mother
They are by far the best matched couple on the show and one of the best on TV as well. They are both so different but they somehow work together perfectly. They are both funny but also the most level headed of the group. It just seems like they’ve been together for such a long time but yet you never get tired of the love they have for each other.
Jim and Pam from The Office
Yet another couple that was clearly meant for each other from the beginning. Jim had a crush on Pam who was a secretary at The Office since pretty much episode one. She had a douche fiancee and Jim basically had to work against that for a majority of the season. The show more or less revolves around their romance since it’s the most endearing and realistic of all the relationships that happen on the show.
April and Andy from Parks and Recreation
By far the most opposite couple on the list. April and Andy are a hilarious and weird couple. It was random when they got married on the show and people kind of thought it was a joke or something. This was one of the first episodes of the show that I really watched and I thought what April said about hating everyone except for him was so much like something I’d say. I instantly loved how this couple interacted with each other and had such remarkable chemistry. It’s a relationship that’s worked out really well on the show and it’s one of my favorites by far.
