This married couple kept us amused for seven seasons. Starting off as a newlywed twosome, Paul and Jamie were as loving as they were funny. Their heartwarming chemistry makes you want their kind of relationship. From their N.Y.C. apartment, they made entertainment out of day-to-day minutia.
In the final season, they have a daughter named Mabel. Though the show’s been off the air for almost two decades, a reboot is in the works with the pair playing empty-nesters instead of newlyweds. Jamie and Paul might be back!
Meredith & Derek – Grey’s Anatomy
Everything’s in the way of these two getting together, but, like a magnet, they can't help being inevitably drawn to each other.
It takes near-death experiences to bring these two hapless lovers together for good, but what else would you expect in an emergency room setting? The proposal, finally, is as sterile as the hospital walls, but it leaves fans ecstatic.
Lucy & Ricky – I Love Lucy
The funniest couple ever. Lucy and Ricky Ricardo became the most-watched TV couple in the 1950s. On I Love Lucy, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz played themselves. Every week, Lucy’s riotously entertaining plots to prove to Ricky she’s a bona fide entertainer ended in a mortifying catastrophe. In response, Ricky’s Cuban-accented, “Luuuuucy!” prompted one of television’s most memorable lines.
Facing her sheepish pout, Ricky would invariably shout, “You got some ‘splaining to do!” The show kept people in stitches. It made you wonder what their real-life marriage was like.
Cookie & Luscious – Empire
She’s one tough cookie and he’s an entertainment/crime mogul. Together they’re a hardcore couple unmatched but for the likes of, well, nothing comes to mind. Toughened by spending seventeen years in the joint, most reasonable people do not mess with Cookie, who also knows her way around the hip hop industry.
Luscious and Cookie are a perfect match—Luscious, seemingly, the only person able to withstand her vitriol and bring the sweet out. But the two are a power couple who lead Empire Entertainment and occasionally battle each other like Hera versus Zeus.
Jon & Ygritte – Game of Thrones

When they fight, Jon may end up with an arrow in his back, but when they love, it’s equally fierce. Forbidden and fateful, the love of Game of Thrones characters Jon Snow and wildling Ygritte captured audiences worldwide.
