Lucky In Love: TV's Happiest Married Couples

at . Comments

Love is in the air - and Cupid's been a busy boy on the small screen, as many of his arrows have already hit a handful of couples.

In anticipation of tomorrow's romantic holiday, here are some of TV's most happily married twosomes. Ready to select your favorite pairing?


Peter & Elizabeth Burke (White Collar) He's an FBI agent. She's an event planner. He loves baseball. She's a music fan. Whether it's having one another's backs or saving conman, consultant, and friend Neal's behind, Peter and Elizabeth's love has been unwavering from day one.

Marshall & Lily Ericksen (How I Met Your Mother) They've managed to hold onto one another while their friends flounder about looking for love. With baby Marvin making these two a family, Lily and Marshall are definitely in this for the long haul.

Marshall and Lily Kiss

Claire & Phil Dunphy (Modern Family) She's the control freak. He's the happy go lucky dad. Despite their three challenging kids, Claire and Phil still find time to find some romance. That's why Agent Clive and Julianna make an appearance every Valentine's Day.

Snow White & Prince Charming (Once Upon a Time) They've lived through curses, an evil queen, several separations, and multiple identities, yet Snow and Charming always find their way back to one another.  They are the fairy tale.

Mitchell Pritchett & Cameron Tucker (Modern Family) At uptight lawyer and a free spirited music teacher, you'd think Mitch and Cam would make one another crazy. Well, they do but in all the best ways.

Danny & Linda Reagan (Blue Bloods) Two high stress jobs (he's an NYPD detective, she's an ER nurse) two kids, a mortgage and the cost of private school keeps things from being easy for Danny and Linda. But it's their faith in one another and the importance of family that nourishes their unbreakable bond.

Jay & Gloria Pritchett (Modern Family) Despite the age difference, Jay and Gloria just fit.  With baby Fulgencia (aka Joe) they are one another's second chance at happiness and neither one of them is willing to let that go.

Adam & Kristina Braverman (Parenthood) A grown daughter in college, a teen with Asperger's and a new baby have kept Adam and Kristina's life from being dull. But Krisitina's recent battle with cancer has made them closer than ever.

Angela Montenegro & Jack Hodgins (Bones) Hodgins is a scientist. Angela's an artist. He's been known to run amok with conspiracy theories. She's got a retro-hippie side. But somehow Hodgins and Angela were simply made for one another.  Even if all of his money is gone, nothing will keep this couple apart.

Jim & Pam Halpert (The Office) Jim may be in Philadelphia and their latest phone call may have ended with Pam in tears but that doesn't mean this couple doesn't have something special. Will their love sustain them until the series finale?

Did we leave anyone out? If so, add them in the comments below and choose your favorite happily married couple for this Valentine's Day.

To Rach, Relbelle, Soapjunk, and all the other Grey's Anatomy fans. I'm going to make a confession. I don't watch Grey's Anatomy. Please don't hurt me. I watch a LOT of TV but I can't watch everything. That said, I do try to do research and add shows that I don't watch into my polls. For some reason I never thought of Grey's when I was coming up with this poll. I take full responsibility for the omission of Meredith and Derek and although I can't promise Grey's a spot on every list, I will make an effort to add them to my research in the future. Thanks for your understanding and I hope you'll keep reading. Christine


If I can't vote for Merder I'm not voting for anyone!!


What the hell?!? WHy are Meredith and Derek always getting the shaft on these things?!! They werent on cutest couple(even though tons of people commented complaining about it, and now this?! They are the happiest they have ever been!! And to everyone else.... MARRIED COUPLE.. I feel like people ignore the question and just try to bring Damon and Elena into everything. Favorite brother sister relationship? DAMON AND ELENA! Cause...theyre close! like brothers and sisters....i!?!


It's definitely one not mentioned here: Mike & Frankie Heck, The Middle. Out of the above, I'll go with Claire & Phil.


To belloe, As much as I adore Caskett, since they're not married they didn't make the list. Given that Castle just got a drawer in Beckett's apartment, I'd say we have one to two seasons to go before we see these two walk down the aisle.


Castle and Beckett?


To Sara and Summer, As much as I think Booth and Brennan were meant for one another, since they aren't officially married they didn't make the poll. With any luck they'll rectify that in the near future. ;)


Booth and Brennan
Damon and Elena
Penny and leonard

Spindae 2o

MER&DER????? I won't vote for these lazy couples.
Addi and Jack?????
Hanna and Caleb????
Leonard and Penny??? Shamy?????


Missing.. Virginia and Burt Chance - Mr. and Mrs Chance. Raising Hope Michael and Nikita Voted for Claire and Phil Dunphy .. ..

Bones Quotes

Booth: I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here, look, um, hey. Do you remember the last time that we were here? Standing right around in this spot? It was right in the beginning before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you because you were irritating me and, uh, you chased me down, and you caught up to me and I said to you 'listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row' and you said to me--
Brennan: I can be a duck.
Booth: Yeah. You know we had been chasing each other for a long time. Chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and snakes. And now chasing you has been the smartest thing that I have ever done in my life. And being chased by you has been my greatest joy. But now, we, uh, we don't have to chase each other anymore because we caught each other.

Worthy of a manger.
