There are plenty of couples from unbearable series that we hate for no reason and there are others that we love when they are clearly toxic. We know they are horrible and sometimes even cruel to each other but we can’t help it, we love them more than our own children.
1. Ross and Rachel in Friends
They get together, they break up, they take a break but in real life they weren’t on a break and go ahead they get back together to break up again, they get married and divorced then have a child but are still not together… We’ve had enough of Ross and Rachel, let’s be honest. Ross is an egocentric and jealous guy to the point that it becomes sickly and Rachel knows full well that she can find better than Ross but stay with him anyway. They have nothing to do with each other and we had a bit of a headache when Rachel gave up her dream of working in Paris to stay with that bigot Ross.
2. Peter and Mary Jane in Spider-Man
The popular girl who leaves the high school kingpin to go out with the loser, it only really happens in the movies. As the story progresses, the relationship between Peter and Mary Jane deteriorates and we realize that they are not so cute together. We know that it feels like the end when Peter kisses another girl with his Spider-Man mask in front of Mary Jane and clearly, Mary Jane is jealous of the success of her boyfriend who no longer does much to support her. We would have preferred her to die at the end rather than Gwen in TASM.
3. Chuck and Blair in Gossip Girl
Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf are the perfect example of the toxic couple that we can’t help but adore. Chuck is human shit and he shows it without flinching by assaulting Jenny and Serena in the early seasons. Afterwards, he does a lot of horrible stuff like offering a night with Blair to his uncle to get his hotel back. For her part, Blair is not perfect either since she is the queen of manipulation and she spends her time spying on Chuck and making his life impossible. A good dysfunctional couple as we like them.
4. Cinderella and Prince Charming
Cinderella and Prince Charming are presented as the perfect couple, a true fairy tale love (and it is the case to say it ptdr compared to the fact that her godmother is a fairy). The problem is that the two protagonists are downright hypocritical and only want to be together because Cinderella is beautiful and Charming is a prince. If the prince really had a crush on Cinderella, why can’t he even remember her face? There are a lot of people to try on a shoe for all the women in the department, but to vaguely remember the face of the love of his life, there is no one left.
5. Jesse and Jane in Breaking Bad
When Jesse falls in love in breaking Bad, we are all a little tender but unfortunately, the relationship he has with Jane is downright creepy. They both pull each other down and know full well they won’t be able to quit hard drugs if they stay together. Even if it’s downright sad, we are a little relieved when Jane dies in her vomit because Jesse has a chance to escape the worst.
6. Adam and Eric in Sex Education
We love Eric and we love Adam but the two together are a little weird. As in many films and series for teens, we find an improbable duo formed by a character who does not yet dare to announce his homosexuality (mainly because of a toxic and homophobic family) and an openly gay character who has difficulty in accept the hidden relationship. They are cute and we would like it to work but the relationship is doomed.
7. Bella and Edward in Twilight
Already, imagining a relationship between a teenager and a vampire who has lived over 100 years is a bit weird, but it doesn’t stop there. Edward does some creepy stuff like going into Bella’s bedroom while she’s sleeping to watch her sleep. Bella is no better: is so in love with Edward that she plans to die rather than live without him (the drama queen). Finally, she agrees to become a vampire to spend eternity by his side, a good and stable relationship what.
8. Robin and Ted in How I Met Your Mother
Ted is a super good character but no one in their right mind could stand him as a friend, he’s way too boring. The guy spends his time moaning and becoming embedded in the couple of his best friends to the point that it becomes embarrassing for everyone. When he starts dating Robin, we think it could work but in fact, nothing. They don’t have much in common and absolutely don’t want the same things in life. Luckily, all’s well that ends well in the final episode. As Ted was able to have children with his dead wife and Robin was able to have a career, they consider that they can end their days together. Sad.
9. Joker and Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad
We know that the Joker and Harley Quinn are villains and that they are deeply unstable, but that doesn’t mean they have to be bad towards each other. In Suicide Squad, Joker manipulates Harley Quinn according to his desires and is totally violent towards her permanently. We love.
10. Mickey Milkovich and Ian Gallagher in Shameless
Mickey and Ian are the best characters in Shameless and a truly exceptional couple but their relationship didn’t start out as a fairy tale. Mickey is naturally violent and impulsive and Ian has been kicking it for years when he just wanted to be happy. Fortunately, Mickey pulls himself together and is there for Ian in difficult times.
11. Anakin and Padme in Star Wars
Anakin and Padme are the main characters of Star Wars: Episode III and we see their relationship evolve as Anakin discovers the dark side of the force. Without realizing it, Anakin brings out the worst in Padme and Padme fails to stop Anakin until it’s too late. Luckily, she manages to protect her children from their not-so-nice father just before he dies.
12. Roger and Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
Already, we are talking about a rabbit going out with a human without anyone having a problem. I find it moderately acceptable but let’s move on. Roger Rabbit, still the rabbit, has doubts about his wife’s fidelity but instead of telling her about it, he decides to hire a private detective to spy on her. If that isn’t a toxic relationship…
13. Troy and Gabriella in High School Musical
Troy and Gabriella are the absolutely unbearable high school star couple. We realize that their couple is floundering in the second film with the song “Gotta Go My Own Way”: Gabriella announces to Troy that she wants to quit her summer job and think about their relationship and Troy reacts like if she talked to him about divorce. What I wouldn’t give to be able to slap these two handsome and hateful teens…
14. Claire and Bender in The Breakfast Club
Bender is a delinquent who responds to teachers and harasses students. Claire is the daddy’s girl who is elected prom queen. Everything separates them and yet, they can’t help but mess around in front of the school. Throughout the film, Bender sexually harasses Claire and when the latter pushes him away, he despises and insults her. Good foundations for a healthy relationship.
15. Donnie and Gretchen in Donnie Darko
Well, we’re talking about a guy who goes out with a girl in a parallel universe when he should be dead, whatever the relationship is. (Yes, this is the worst summary of Donnie Darko that exists on this planet)
