Randall And Beth From "This Is Us" Are The Perfect Example Of Unapologetic Love And I Have The Receipts To Prove It

It's a universal truth that they're the best couple on TV.

There are a lot of reasons to watch This Is Us. The family-centric show spans generations and definitely makes everyone cry, but for me, it's always been about Beth and Randall.

They're the power couple for the ages.

Look at their smiles! Captivating! Glowing! You see this couple and immediately think 'love'.

Sure, you may be skeptical. I mean, there are so many couples on This Is Us and the show gives you good reason to root for them all, but the proof is in the pudding as they say. Don't think Beth and Randall are the best? Let me convince you.

1. They give each other room to pursue their individual dreams.

While still cheering their partner on!

2. They're endlessly supportive of each other.

From Randall bringing home his long-lost bio-dad to when Beth decided to open up her dance studio, they're always always on each other's team.

3. They truly get each other.

From day one, these two were meant to be. Upon first meeting at Carnegie Mellon University, Randall was very obviously smitten (though Beth needed a little bit more convincing). When they eventually did get together, it was for the longhaul.

4. They stand by each other through the hard stuff and the good times, too.

From silly dad jokes to intense one-on-one conversations about Randall's mental health, Beth and Randall are always there for each other.

5. They have real, honest conversations, even when they don't want to.

When things get hard, they talk it through. It's a sign of a great partnership to listen and learn from each other and Beth and Randall certainly do that.

6. They know how to laugh with each other and at each other.

Sure, Toby is the supposed ~funny guy~ and he's excellent in his own right, but nothing makes me laugh like a charming Beth and Randall scene.

7. They complement each other to a T.

Think about all the times Beth supported Randall when his mental health wasn't great. Plus, she's the only one that actually laughs at his terrible puns. They're a match made in heaven. If anything were to happen to them, I'd be devastated.

8. They balance each other out.

Beth and Randall are a fierce duo! When it comes to parenting, they're always in it together. While we really got to see Jack and Rebecca become parents for the first time, it's Beth and Randall who have shown us time and time again that it takes constant teamwork.

9. They have a beautiful family.

Tess, Annie, and Deja are constantly encouraged to be themselves. They've raised three wonderful humans which is a testament to their partnership.

10. They've certainly been through their ups and downs.

But they've come out stronger nonetheless. Sure, Jack and Rebecca have a love story for the ages, and it's a great one at that, but the amount of love and support Beth has shown Randall and vice-versa from the very beginning is unmatched in my opinion.

11. Their love makes everyone cry.

Just imagine them not being together.... it's too much! I can't!

They're the MVPs of power couples and for all the right reasons, too. What are your favorite Beth and Randall moments from This Is Us? Let us know in the comments!
