10 lessons we learned from the *best* on-screen couples

Let's be real, we look up to our favorite fictional characters for, well, everything—especially their relationships! And who better to take advice from than these ten iconic and*perfect* on-screen couples!?

1. Dan and Serena from Gossip Girl taught us…

…that forgiveness is a key to any relationship. These two have *def* had their ups and downs. Remember when Dan was literally in love with Blair? Awk. But at the end of the day, this duo was in love and wanted the best for one another! The only thing in their way was saying, “I’m sorry.”

2. Monica and Chandler from Friends taught us…

…that friendship is the base of any relationship. No one saw these two coming! But when they did get together, it just felt right. That’s because they were such good friends. They already knew each other super well and cared *so* much about each other. We can’t think of a better way to start a relationship!

3. Zac and Mariana from The Fosters taught us…

…that it’s important to stick up for each other. Remember when Mariana got uber hurt by Chase? Zac totally stuck up for her and we just *love* him for it! Ugh, if he didn’t have to move to another state we’d still be shipping these two so hard.

4. Freddy and Summer from School of Rock taught us…

…that finding things in common is such a bonus. Fremmer is a perfect example of why like the same things as your bae is great. It gives you something to bond over which totally helps defuse the awkward beginning stages of a relationship.

5. Mal and Ben from Descendants taught us…

…that no one is perfect. Look, we all know Mal is the best, but not everyone thought that in the beginning of Descendants! (Hello, #longliveevil!) Ben was able to look past her facade and see the good in her. No one is perfect, but people are rarely truly evil—it just takes some getting to know them!

6. Belle and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast taught us…

…not to judge a book (or a crush) by its cover! Be our guest, and give us one reason why Belle and the Beast shouldn’t be together. Could you imagine what would have happened if Belle hadn’t given Beast a chance and Beast never put any effort in to get to know Belle? That would have been a tragedy! Sure, Beast was a little hairy and Belle was giving him some attitude (rightfully so), but they turned out to be totally different people than they thought.

7. Miles and Tristan from Degrassi Next Class taught us...

...that it's important to be ready to move on *before* you start something new. #Triles was at the top of our Degrassi ship list, but When Tristan thought that Miles was still into Maya, the boys split up. But Tristan was right: It's almost *impossible* to be in a relationship if you're not over your ex. Lucky for us, Miles got over that and the two lovebirds are back together. #goals

8. Maddy and Olly from Everything Everything taught us... take some risks. This amaze couple showed us that getting out of your comfort zone can not only be a good thing, but it just might be the best thing! You should experience life to the fullest. And as the saying goes, you'll never know until you try—in relationships *and* in life.

9. Emily and Alison from Pretty Little Liars taught us... face the tough stuff together. These two have literally been through it all. But toward the end of the series, they found their way back to one another. Emison fans couldn't have been more thrilled. What's even better is that they finally started working together when they had to make some hard choices, like what to do about the twins and how to handle covering up a murder (ya know, the usual couple stuff!).

10. K.C. and Brett from K.C. Undercover taught us...

...that sometimes it's best to let go. We want to love this duo so much, but we know that K.C. and Brett just aren't meant to be together. There's a reason for everything and, even if it doesn't seem like it at the time, there's always a light at the end of the tunnel.
