Top 10 Best TV Couples of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Rachel & Ross (Friends)

While no relationship in reality is a fairy tale, each has its moments of discomfort. That's what this is. They each had their own insecurities, self-respect, and so much love in their hearts to forgive each other. They were the real deal.

One of the cutest and most realistic TV couples. What I love about them is that they're not only a couple but also good friends, and they have great chemistry.

Definitely Ross and Rachel. Best TV couple. They connect and have real chemistry together. The way they are with each other is just so sweet!

2 Jim & Pam (The Office)

The most real, honest, and sincere couple in the history of TV sitcoms. Friends usually wins because the show as a whole was so incredibly popular, and Rachel and Ross comprise 33% of the show's characters. That being said, if you compare the power, palpable love, and humor that Jim and Pam display - with much less overall screen time - it's hands down a better developed and filmed relationship.

Listen, they are clearly the best couple on this list. They are perfect together, and it was building up to their marriage. Then they had kids, and when things didn't work out, they did the best they could to make it work. They stayed together through thick and thin because they loved each other. That, my friends, describes two soulmates with a fairy tale-type romance.

3 Monica & Chandler (Friends)

I have to say Jim and Pam are better than these two, but they're still great together. Easily the best couple in Friends. Them dating was random, but it worked. They loved each other and had tons of obstacles, yet they got through it all.

Guys, looking back on pre-Mondler episodes, even though no one expected it, there are heaps of little cute things. When they are singing Smelly Cat, they are holding hands. TWICE Chandler offered to be her boyfriend. Monica said, I love you, in TOW the Jellyfish. TWICE they were cuddling at Central Perk. The way Monica looked at him when Chandler was asleep on her couch. AWWWWW.

4 Lorelei & Luke (Gilmore Girls)

This needs to be in the top ten. The perfect couple on any TV show anywhere. I love Luke and Lorelai. Made for each other.

Who is/was cuter together than Luke and Lorelai from Gilmore Girls?

5 Homer & Marge (The Simpsons)

I'm a fan of The Simpsons, and needless to say, I think they make a good couple.

6 Sheldon & Amy (The Big Bang Theory)

They are an unexpected couple. When you see those two characters, you don't expect to see them falling in love and being in a relationship. That's why it's interesting to explore their journey.

7 Marshall & Lily (How I Met Your Mother)

Why aren't they higher? In my opinion, they are one of the best. They were in love from the moment they saw each other and they are still in love with each other even after being together for years and years!

Even as a married couple, they manage to stay interesting to the audience. Not many married couples on TV do.

8 Lucy & Ricky (I Love Lucy)

This is the epitome of the classic TV couple, especially since they are actually married. One of the best TV shows of all time.

9 Michael & Nikita (La Femme Nikita)

The best couple! Love them! Roy Dupuis is an amazing actor and he leads Peta Wilson so well!

Very beautiful couple. I love them! Michael and Nikita are the best! They are just super!

Oh YES! I love this beautiful couple very much. They both kicked major ass.

10 Ben & Leslie (Parks and Recreation)

Okay, how this isn't in the top 5 is crazy because this couple is the cutest thing ever! Everything about this show is fantastic: the pacing, characters, writing, improv, and so on. If you haven't seen the show, I highly recommend that you do. I finished it in just six days. That's how addicted I was and still am!

Enough about that, though. What I really want to focus on, of course, is Ben and Leslie! Not only are they the most adorkable couple ever, but they also teach us in the real world how we should show love to our own partner. Plus, both of them are nerds, which is literally why they are the cutest couple on television.

Their story is amazing, too. First, they went from hating each other to caring for one another to the point where Ben would be willing to break up with Leslie if it meant she could get her dream job. I mean, can I please get a man that sweet, understanding, and loving? Then, they decide to become a couple again and face the consequences together because they couldn't stand not being with each other. Ben even quits his job for her sake!

The rest is history. They fall even more in love. He proposes to her in one of the most romantic scenes ever to air on television. They get married three months before the set date because they couldn't wait any longer. Ben decides he's ready for a family right when Leslie gets pregnant, they have triplets, and they live a perfect life! No couple can beat Ben and Leslie. #BenWyatt&LeslieKnope

The Contenders
11 Andy Dwyer & April Ludgate (Parks and Recreation)
12 Ted & Robin (How I Met Your Mother)

These two are amazing together. It's unknown what makes them such a great couple - they have almost nothing in common even. Yet, they click for some reason, and it seems right. Soulmates don't need a reason to click. It just happens.

They are the next Ross and Rachel!

They have the best chemistry. Even as friends, their bond is deep and strong. They are happy when they are together and help each other grow.

13 Rory & Logan (Gilmore Girls)
14 Brittany & Santana (Glee)
15 Haley & Nathan (One Tree Hill)

Definitely! And the wonderful thing about it is how they came to be - their story. How many teen shows can you say that the main teenagers were married?! And not just that. They had Jamie so young, and they still managed to keep their love alive. Always and forever.

They showed what marriage was really about. Not a perfect happily ever after life but one with problems that you can get over if you work together as a partnership.

They make you believe in the kind of love that endures all challenges of life and still has the magic of a first kiss nine years later.

16 Damon & Elena (The Vampire Diaries )

They deserve to be number one. They are my favorite thing of all time, literally my third favorite thing in the world after friends and family. That's how much I love them. They are the most legendary couple to ever exist, and that's a fact. I don't know what my life would be without Delena.

If I'm feeling sad, it's Delena. If I want something to watch, it's Delena. If I'm feeling happy, it's Delena. Nothing I say will do justice to how much I adore this iconic couple. Their story and development are my absolute favorites, from how they started as enemies to becoming literal soulmates. Stelena was cute and all, but it can't even compare to this beautiful OTP.

Every scene I watch of them, a torrent of emotions runs through my brain. I mostly cry, laugh, and have the biggest smile on my face. My heart just warms up, and I also get literal goosebumps when I watch their most iconic moments. I'm not even lying. I'm starting to cry writing this, and my heart feels so warm.

My favorite season of Delena is probably S3, as they weren't yet a couple. However, it's where they had their first kiss, where Elena finally admitted she liked Damon, where she gave into her feelings, and where she first knew she loved him. Their bond also flourished this season, and they grew closer and closer together.

I also love S6B because, even though she erased all the good memories she had of him, she still managed to love him again. If that isn't true love, then I don't know what is. They literally beat the odds of the universe. No one thought they would work. No one thought Damon would get the girl, but he did. They have the best relationship - imperfect, with arguments here and there, but they would do anything for each other and love one another unconditionally.

Their scenes are the most mesmerizing thing, and I will never forget the amazing quotes they say to each other. I will never forget them. They are a significant part of my life. Nothing hurts me... more

17 Rory & Jess (Gilmore Girls)
18 Sam & Diane (Cheers)
19 Star & Marco (Star vs The Forces of Evil)
20 Phineas & Isabella (Phineas and Ferb)
21 Dipper & Wendy (Gravity Falls)
22 Buffy & Angel (Buffy The Vampire Slayer)

It's actually a close tie for me between Buffy and Angel and Ross and Rachel, but Buffy and Angel were the ultimate star-crossed lovers.

23 Annie Edison & Jeff Winger (Community)

They should be higher than this. Yes, I know the age difference was big, but they had so much chemistry. Much more than Jeff and Britta. That relationship was just sexual. Annie and Jeff actually had an emotional connection, and they didn't annoyingly bicker all the time. A real relationship should be built on connection, not tension.

I love these two more than any couple in the world. They are always my number one couple.

24 Cory & Topanga (Boy Meets World)
25 Jake & Amy (Brooklyn Nine Nine)
