Did Friends foreshadow Monica and Chandler's marriage and difficulty conceiving?

Posted on

Everyone knows that Chandler and Monica are couple goals

And their relationship was a total surprise

But did the writers plan it all out since season one?

Here we see Chandler initially offering to make babies with future Monica if they are both unmarried.

To which of course, Monica asks what is fundamentally unmarriable about her.

And they even share a romantic moment in season three

She is one of his favorite people AND the most beautiful woman he has ever known in real life.

He even offers AGAIN later in the season

Chandler later asks Monica if she would date him if he is the last guy on Earth.

He has canned goods.

And she never officially said no

But the conspiracy goes even deeper...

Here, Ross innocently jokes that both of Monica's boyfriends past either cannot or will not have children.

Richard did not want more kids at his age and Pete got hit in his "favorite place."

But IS it innocent?

Or did the writers KNOW?

Or did the writers KNOW?

Even Chandler himself jokes in season three that he is sterile

If only he knew... He did say it was because he was abducted by a hat, so the logic is flawless.

But what about Monica?

Turns out that in season four, Monica asks Rachel if she would hypothetically be a surrogate for her.

A route she never ended up taking, but good to know she has the option. Maybe.

Lastly, when Monica and Chandler first try for a baby, she jokes that he made both her and the room "sterile" with air freshener.

Was this the writers final nod?

While we may never know if the writers planned this all from the beginning, we do know that Monica and Chandler are perfect.

From when they first met...

To when Monica tried to seduce Chandler with macaroni, carrots, and knives.

Could that BE any sexier?

Their first kiss...

To when he said "I love you" for the first time.

What do you think? Was it amazing foreshadowing or extreme coincidences that brought Monica and Chandler together?
