There’s no shortage of couples in movie history, but few of them are built to last. Here are the fictional couples that could go the distance.

Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton in Friday Night Lights (NBC)
1. Eric & Tami Taylor – Friday Night Lights

Other couples simply can’t compare to Coach and Mrs. Coach. Sure, they have their flaws, but they understand the sacrifice and give-and-take of making a successful relationship. Plus, it helps that they’re both incredibly wise, something that only comes with experience.

2. Jesse & Celine – Before Midnight

Their meet-cute in Before Sunrise is both thoughtful and lovely, their reunion in Before Sunset is poignant and sexy, but their near-end in Before Midnight is the richest of all their time together. If they can survive their last fight – which features both legitimate and irrelevant points – they’ll survive forever.

 

Marge & Homer in The Simpsons (Fox)
3. Homer & Marge Simpson – The Simpsons

Though it’s often revealed how much Marge had to give up to raise their family, there’s no denying the love these two have for each other. They’ve both had multiple opportunities to cheat with people far more attractive than their spouses, yet remained faithful for 25 years (even though time doesn’t really matter in Springfield).
