Television is a way to escape from reality for an hour or so at a time. Romantic comedies are so of the most popular on television because of the relationship between the couples. However cute they may be on the screen, these TV Show Couples Who Would Never Work In Real Life make it impossible to read too much into their relationships.
Big Bang Theory
This show centers around a few very smart men and their gorgeous neighbor. After a couple of seasons, the men started hooking up with women who they would have never landed in real life. For example, Howard and Bernadette have virtually nothing in common but the odd relationships they have with their mothers. That just isn’t enough to sustain a relationship in the real world but it seems to work for them on television. The connections between Penny and Leonard and Sheldon and Amy aren’t likely to be seen between any real people either.
When Monica and Chandler started dating, everyone knew it wouldn’t work in real life. There’s no way a woman who was known to her boyfriend as Ross’ fat sister would marry him. However, because the TV world of the Friends’ stars didn’t give them too many other people to date, it only made sense the women and men would date each other.
Sex and the City
Carrie and Mr. Big would have never hooked up in real life. The relationship began as an affair and those hookups rarely end in marriage. With Mr. Big’s commitment issues, it’s unlikely Carrie Bradshaw would have devoted several seasons of her real life to chasing a man who wasn’t ready to be her’s.
TV is fun to watch as long as people don’t spend too much time analyzing the relationships between the characters. It’s best to use these shows for what they are meant to do — give people an escape from reality as they unwind after a long day of real life. By relaxing and not reading too much into the story line, viewers can enjoy the odd relationships and forget they have to return to real life they following day.
