I've always loved the fairy-tale love you see on TV.
But love in real life isn't always like that. Relationships take work, and long-term relationships naturally go through hard times. So it can be really refreshing to see TV shows reflect this!
One of the first couples to come to mind who show how hard, yet worth it, love is? Randall and Beth from This Is Us.
Madeline and Ed from Big Little Lies are another great example.
There are also some teen drama couples we watch grow together, like Nathan and Haley from One Tree Hill.
And then, of course, there's Jamie and Dani from The Haunting of Bly Manor, who went through A LITERAL HAUNTING together.
Now it's your turn — what TV love story do you adore because it's so realistic and shows that relationships take work? Let me know who the TV couple is and why you think their love story is so realistic in the comments below, and you could be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!
