Back in the day before reality TV, we had sitcoms. Really, really good sitcoms. Shows about family, love, and friendship. I really miss that. In thinking about my favorite sitcoms, it made me think about the couples that I absolutely love. The couples that define what marriage should look like. I feel fortunate that I grew up during the time of positive shows that depicted healthy African-American families and households.
With that I decided to highlight a few of my FAVE TV couples, past and present.
George and Louise "Weezy"
These two paved the way! You just gotta love George and Weezy!
Bill and Claire
Where do I even begin with these two. I absolutely love these two together. It's still hard for me to believe they are not married in real life. They had such an amazing chemistry on tv. It was truly something special.
Martin and Gina
I love me some Martin and Gina! Martin's ridiculous antics never get old and one things is always for sure, he loves his GINA!
Doug and Carrie
I love these two. They make me laugh. Carrie is rude and says what she thinks, Doug is... Doug. For whatever reason it works and I just love them. Bonus, they have black friends!
Curits and Ella
Curtis is a FULL TIME JOB, but Ella always knows how to handle her man. I love how Ella's character is portrayed. She's always wise and full of praise!
Derwin and Melanie
How can you not feel these two. They are HOT together. They've had their fair share of drama, making them a not so perfect couple in many ways, but I KNOW I'm not the only who feels the intense connection they have. Their relationship feels so real. I love them together. Always rooted for them to get it right.
Calvin and Miranda
In my opinion one of the most beautiful couples on TV right now. Like Derwin and Melanie, they have more than a little bit of drama, but they look so dag on good together! I wish they would date in real life. The children would be gorgeous!
These are just a few of TV couples that I love.
