There are so many couples on TV that keep us guessing with their will-they-won’t-they drama. They break up, the make up, and nothing is ever just stable in their relationship. And while that’s all fine an dandy for some, we prefer the other type of TV couple. The ones who are blissfully drama-free. Who get together and stay together. Sure, dramatic things might happen to them but they always get through it together. Nothing can tear apart these happy, enduring couples!
We get it, watching people fall in and out of love on TV is just good viewing! You aren’t the only one who loves the drama of a couple who keeps us guessing. But sometimes, it’s comforting to know that even on TV, there are couples that just love each other unconditionally. We could all use more of those good vibes right now!
Morticia and Gomez, The Addams Family
These two may be spooky and gothic, but they’re a total dream couple. First off, imagine finding someone who enjoys the same creepy, scary things as you do and embracing it wholeheartedly. Second, Gomez (John Astin) respects the hell out of his wife. He pretty much worships the ground she walks on! These two always take time to express their love, be it through bizarre metaphors or an impromptu Waltz around the living room. The only drama in their lives is the darkness they invite into it, and they thoroughly enjoy together!
Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky, Full House
Have mercy! Bad boy reforms when faced with true love, what could be better? Jesse (John Stamos) was a serial dater before Becky (Lori Loughlin) came into his life. But once she did, everything changed. Their relationship is so wholesome and sweet it gives us a toothache. In the best way, of course. They fell in love and stayed in love, eventually getting married and having adorable twin boys. Sometimes a relationship can be that simple! Plus, Jesse was a musician and Becky never got jealous so that’s true love right there.
Homer and Marge, The Simpsons
When you’ve been married for as long as these two have, you’ve done and seen it all. After two decades of The Simpsons on TV, I think Homer (Dan Castellaneta) and Marge (Julie Kavner) have a rock solid marriage. Sure, Homer can be an idiot and Marge always has to clean up his messes, but that’s just who they are! And they both accept each other, flaws and all. There are so many times Marge could’ve just thrown her hands up and left her troublemaker husband behind. But she didn’t because they have a life and a family together. Through the everyday hardships — and the bizarre things Homer gets himself into — these two are always by each other’s sides.
Snow and Prince Charming, Once Upon a Time
These two have had their fair share of drama going on around them. They are fairytale characters after all. But there’s a reason perfect couples are compared to Prince Charming and Snow White — because these two are maddeningly perfect for each other! Through each new disaster, curse, and villain, they’ve found their way back to each other. The one constant on a TV show full of chaos is the love between Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Charming (Josh Dallas) – who, P.S., are married IRL! True love is the ultimate fight against any evil!
Kristina and Adam, Parenthood
Parenthood knew how to pack on the drama, and the cries, but that doesn’t mean all the couples were full of drama, too! Despite everything that was thrown at them, Kristina (Monica Potter) and Adam (Peter Krause) never wavered in their love for each other. Not when they were raising a son with Aspergers who becomes increasingly difficult as he ages. Not when Kristina was diagnosed with breast cancer. And not when Kristina decided to run for mayor, upending her family life. They face every new challenge together and never back down in the face of obstacles. They truly are the definition of a family unit!
Mitch and Cam, Modern Family
Opposites totally attract! These two could not be more different from one another but they have one big thing in common: their love and admiration for each other. The two argue a lot and try to figure out parenting on a daily basis. But despite how things may get in their day-to-day lives, they always show up for each other. Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) may get annoyed with Cam’s (Eric Stonestreet) antics, but he always supports everything he does. No matter how ridiculous! And their love for their daughter overcomes any of the mundane everyday troubles that may plague them. Sometimes love isn’t constant physical affection or never fighting. It’s being there for each other when it matters most!
Randall and Beth, This is Us
On a show of adorable couples, Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown) are for sure the best. Years into their marriage and a few kids later, they still haven’t lost their spark! Beth shows her man that she wants him basically all the time. And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want Sterling K. Brown all the time!? Whenever they are faced with an issue, they sort through it together with a whole lot of humor and grace. Sweating the small stuff is so not for them. They show gratitude and appreciation on the reg, and that’s the perfect recipe for a great relationship.
Jane and Brad, Happy Endings
The success of this couple and how they stay drama free is pretty simple: have fun! It’s never boring in Jane (Eliza Coupe) and Brad’s (Damon Wayans Jr.) relationship! These two have got it going on. They’re not only in love with each other but they’re genuinely best friends. They have this living life together thing on lock. And they even each other out perfectly. At the end of the day, these are just a couple of weirdos who found each other and now get to be weird together every day. Isn’t that what we all want?
Eric and Tami, Friday Night Lights
Talk about a power couple! Eric (Kyler Chandler) may be the coach, but Tami (Connie Britton) is definitely his equal. These two navigate utter chaos together with ease, and always put each other first. Their co-parenting is on point, and compromise is just part of the deal with these two. When Eric’s career put the family and their lives in flux, Tami supported him without question. Above all else, Tami and Eric truly respect each other. And because of that, they weather any storm, keeping their love drama-free.
April and Andy, Parks and Recreation
If opposites attract, then these two must be freakin’ magnets. April (Aubrey Plaza) is basically the most apathetic person alive. Andy (Chris Pratt), on the other hand, is dim but happy and always up for anything. Shockingly, together they just work. April hates just about everything except Andy, and girl, we can relate. They date for a few weeks and then just decide to do a surprise wedding at a dinner party for their friends and family. They just knew they wanted to spend their lives together. Ever since, they’ve navigated adulthood and career changes galore and had a perfect little Halloween baby. A holiday that is spooky and fun, just like this TV couple.
Phil and Claire, Modern Family
Raising a family is hard, but this ultimate team of a couple makes it look easy. It’s hard to find an equal in this world, and despite their differences, these two are truly two halves of a whole. While Claire (Julie Bowen) seems to wear the pants, Phil (Ty Burrell) keeps everything light. And when you put them both together, you have a perfectly balanced household. Despite being married parents to three all-over-the-place children, they still clearly dig each other! They don’t “stay together for the kids,” they stay together because they’ve devoted their lives to one another and still feel that all these years later. Watching a happy marriage like this on TV makes us think that maybe it does exist in real life!
Jane and Michael, Jane the Virgin
Sure, there’s a whole lot of drama surrounding these two. It is a telenovela. But when it comes to drama within their relationship, there is zero, zilch, none! When it comes to couples on TV, there is not a single one that knows each other better than Jane (Gina Rodriguez) and Michael (Brett Dier). They know each other beyond little things like how they take their coffee. They know their quirks, habits, hearts, and souls. You can’t find two people more well-suited for each other! These two never let the insane things going on around them affect how they are with one another. They hold their relationship sacred, and that’s amazing.
Lily and Marshall, How I Met Your Mother
College sweethearts turned loves of each other’s lives. What could be cuter? Barring a short separation at the beginning of the series, these two have been smooth sailing forever. They’re both two quirky, crazy kids living life in a way that suits them both. And supporting each other along the way. But that doesn’t mean they just let each other do whatever they want because one of the great things about their relationship is how they call each other out on their BS regularly. Everyone needs that! When times get rough, they always know they can lean on each other. And on a TV show where the other couples are constantly unstable or temporary, they’re a welcome respite.
Amy and Jake, Brooklyn Nine-Nine
On paper, these two would never work. Amy (Melissa Fumero) is straight-laced, type-A, and neurotic. Jake (Andy Samberg) literally could not be more opposite. But, somehow, they just work perfectly. They take the time to understand where the other is coming from always and learn about the things the other one loves i.e., Amy at least attempting to like Die Hard. They also rise above drama by treating each other as equals. Even if one excels and the other fails, they are both on the same level in each other’s eyes. And that’s rare to come by!
Jim and Pam, The Office
There’s a reason people always say they want a relationship like Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam’s (Jenna Fischer)! These two were a long time coming, but once they got together, it was all love from there. He bought an engagement ring a week into dating her! This is true love folks! Jim and Pam started as friends so they already had a good foundation in their relationship that was built on more than just being a couple. They know how to have fun together — especially pulling pranks! Their romance felt real even by TV standards. They’re not perfect, but they’re perfect for each other!
Ben and Leslie, Parks and Recreation
When you are smart and ambitious, it’s often hard to find a partner that has that same drive. Or that wants to see you succeed as badly as you do. Luckily for Ben (Adam Scott) and Leslie (Amy Poehler), they found that fully in each other. They are the most supportive couple on TV, basically. Any bump in their relationship is figured out due to their superb communication skills and desire for the other to be happy. Leslie didn’t flinch when she told Ben to go to Washington D.C. for an entire summer away from her to run a Congressional campaign. Because she knew it would make him happy! And that, my friends, is what it’s all about.
Cory and Topanga, Boy Meets World/Girl Meets World
These two met as children and then spent their entire lives loving each other. If that’s not #couplegoals I’m not sure what is. Except for predictable teen angst, these two have been steadily together basically their entire lives. First loves, first kiss, first everything! Even when others thought they were crazy for getting engaged fresh out of high school, they knew it was right. And they proved everyone wrong. Their happiness is contagious, and after all those years Cory (Ben Savage) still loves Topanga’s (Danielle Fishel) tushy. Adorable.
Monica and Chandler, Friends
When people think of Friends, they probably think of Ross (David Schwimmer) and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston). But they aren’t the true, perfect love story of the show. Monica (Courteney Cox) and Chandler (Matthew Perry) are! Think about it — these two got together and stayed together. There were no “breaks,” cheating, or 18-page notes dragging them apart and together constantly. One night in London turned into the rest of their lives, showing us what it truly means for friends to turn into family. They never let their totally different personalities come between then. Instead, they took what made them unique and brought that to the relationship, creating a strong bond. They’re truly a couple for the TV ages.
