In an era when Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore can’t even stay together, where are we supposed to turn for paragons of marriage? Television, of course! Here, the 11 most solid relationships to hit the small screen.
The 11 Best TV Marriages
More than just Coach and Tami
Pam And Jim Halpert
These two are clearly made for each other, and unlike other will-they-or-won’t-they pairings, when they finally got together, it didn’t ruin the show.
Miranda Hobbes And Steve Brady
The Brooklyn brownstone. The adorable baby. The hot make-out sessions in the rain. Miranda and Steve taught us that opposites do attract. (Just ignore the part in the movie when he’s the worst.)
Homer And Marge Simpson
Even though she almost cheated on him with her bowling instructor.
Cam Tucker And Mitchell Pritchett
Even though they’re not allowed to ever act sexual and might actually hate each other.
Phil And Claire Dunphy
Because all parents of three should have this much fun 144 episodes in.
Khaleesi And Drogo
Carl And Harriette Winslow
Not every marriage could survive Steve Urkel.
Jason And Maggie Seaver
Hey, it was the '80s! The stay-at-home-dad thing was kind of a big deal.
Francis And Claire Underwood
Look, they have an understanding (and sometimes a threesome with the Secret Service guy).
Coach And Tami Taylor
Clear heads, full hearts, great hair. The gold-friggin' standard.
