Classic TV Show Couples

Since the dawn of TV history, couples have been the backbone of nearly all of the best programs. To celebrate the season of love, we're taking a look at some of our all time fave TV couples.

Ross and Rachel

The on-again, off-again, on-again couple from Friends managed to keep their turbulent love alive despite a notorious "break", various marriages (to each other as well as other people), a baby, and about a million [kwlink 5462]different hairstyles. But as the Beatles once said, all you need is love, so Ross and Rachel were back together when Friends went off the air in 2004.

Cliff & Clair Huxtable

Dr. Huxtable and his lawyer wife Clair were the firm but fair parents on The Cosby Show. Totally in love, despite demanding careers and four children, Cliff and Clair were great role models without being too sickly sweet.

Seth and Summer

Former real-life couple Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson played the troubled-but-in-love O.C. couple Seth and Summer who battled drug use, pregnancy scares, shootings and an ill-advised engagement that threatened their relationship. By the end of The O.C. Summer and Seth part ways, but a flash forward sequence shows the two being married. But really, how else could it end up?

Lucy and Desi

I Love Lucy starred Lucille Ball and her real-life husband Desi Arnaz as TV couple Lucy and Ricky Ricardo. The two were about the zaniest, wackiest and most unpredictable couple ever to grace the small screen. The show originally aired in all its black and white glory back in the 1950s but you can still catch re-runs at pretty much any time of the day or night. With staying power like that, it's hard to beat this classic TV couple.

Dharma and Gregg

Long before there was a Dharma Initiative, there was Dharma and Greg. She's a kooky free-spirited yoga instructor and he's a straight-laced attorney from old money. They got married on the first date. They may not be very alike, but Dharma and Greg are made for each other and have often been compared to Lucy and Desi.

Homer and Marge

Homer and Marge Simpson

Homer and Marge have been a couple longer than anyone else in television history, 408 episodes, 19 seasons and counting, in fact. Some might wonder how this relationship has lasted so long considering Homer's constant bumbling and Marge's nagging, but this marriage is based on unconditional love and sometimes brutal honesty. Over the years the Simpsons have dealt with every problem real-life couples face including new jobs, financial woes, and even extra-marital temptation. Homer and Marge are far from perfect people, but they're perfect for each other.

Eric and Donna

Eric and Donna from That 70's Show

Eric Forman and Donna Pinciotti grew up together as next door neighbors in Point Place, Wisconsin. Romantically, the couple started to have feelings for each other in the first season, and were soon officially dating. Over the years Eric and Donna have broken up, made up, and even been engaged. In the final episode, the couple sat on the hood of Eric's car just like it all began. They prove that when it comes to relationships, the heart always holds a special place for first loves.

Either SAO, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, or Day Break Illusion. The last two look like shows for little kids, considering all the main characters are girls but trust me, looks can be deceiving at first glance. Still watching Day Break Illusion.
