Sitcoms Online / Elle

Remember when your parents complained that TV shows were like a drug to you? Well, it was really the bubbling romances that had you addicted.

It was nearly impossible to ignore the lives of some of the most famous TV couples of the '90s. They taught us so many things about romance, while also being incredibly entertaining.  

Here are 10 TV couples that were more important than your own relationship, because seriously, if they couldn't make it, how could you?

1. Jesse and Rebecca on Full House

Jeseky! The coolest uncle in the world found himself quite the girl, and we wished nothing more than to be as calm and collected as Rebecca. I mean, you have to be pretty great if you're willing to move into that hectic household.

2. Roseanne and Dan on Roseanne

They were everything we ever wanted in a relationship. Roseanne and Dan taught us valuable relationship advice like how it's the little things that matter, it takes two to make a relationship work, honesty is crucial, and, of course, a healthy sex life is a big part of marriage. Well, we weren't married then, but it was some sound advice.

3. Mulder and Scully on The X-Files

These two co-workers had more in common than just their beliefs about alien life. This show was emotional roller coaster ride because we never knew if these two were going to end up together. That being said, we loved every minute of Mulder being overprotective of Scully. The show is still churning out episodes, but the love between these two felt different back in the '90s.

4. Zack and Kelly on Saved by the Bell

This classic TV show couple showed young love better than any other show at the time. It also helped that they were super good looking. It took a long time until we finally saw these love birds share a kiss, but it was worth waiting for. Also, how adorable was that proposal?

5. Buffy and Angel on Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Bella Swan and Edward Cullen step aside, the forbidden love between Buffy and Angel is still talked about today.

6. Pacey and Joey on Dawson's Creek

Okay, Dawson fans don't be angry with me, but most of us were really rooting for Pacey and Joey to be together. They may have stabbed Dawson in the back, but they had their reasons. Also, Joey lost her virginity to Pacey so just ponder on that...

7. Michael and Jackie on That '70s Show

They always bickered like an old couple, but Michael and Jackie were still one of our favorite TV couples of the '90s. Their relationship had a way of making you evaluate your own. The cherry on top is that they got married in real life.

8. Sabrina and Harvey on Sabrina the Teenage Witch

Despite becoming a victim to Sabrina's spells, Harvey actually liked her. They were more like best friends, but isn't that what a successful relationship is supposed to feel like?

9. Angela and Jordan on My So Called Life

If this wasn't teen angst, I don't know what was. Jordan is probably the reason why we girls are obsessed with bad boys. We all wanted Jordan to man up, but I guess that's what made the storyline keep going...

10. Lucy and Kevin on 7th Heaven

Aren't you glad that double date happened? There was some turmoil before the couple tied the knot, but during that time you were rooting for them to make it through. What I loved about their relationship was that it felt real.

Which TV couple from the '90s was your favorite?
