Top 10 Fictional Couples: TV Edition

It's no secret that I love me my TV shows and I'm a sucker for a good love story. Here's a countdown of my favourite fictional couples on TV, in no particular order.

Some of the couples didn't make it... because even feel-good TV show writers can be pricks.

No, Ross and Rachel didn't make it on the list. Because when you spend more seasons apart than you do together, it's clearly not the epic love story people want it to be, but Chandler and Monica, without the loud fanfare just make sense with each other. So let's start there:

1. Chandler Bing & Monica Geller, Friends


They're funny...

Chandler: Y’know I was thinking, what if I uh... unpack here?
Monica: Then all your stuff would be here.
Chandler: Well, what if all my stuff was here?
Monica: Then you’d be going back and forth all the time, I mean
it doesn’t make any sense.
Chandler: Okay. What if we lived together and you understand  what I’m saying?
Monica: Live together? There have been no signs for that.
Chandler: Me asking is kind of a sign.
Monica: YES!!!!!!!!
Chandler: Okay!!!!!

And sweet...

8. Meredith Grey & Derek Shepherd, Grey's Anatomy
I've had tumultuous feelings about this couple, at first -- I loved them. Then I couldn't stand them and now I'm at a genuine appreciation for their relationship.
