Why Gomez and Morticia Addams are Relationship Goals

Romeo and Juliet, the Joker and Harley Quinn, Lizzie and Mr. Darcy…there have been many couples throughout pop culture that audiences have loved to watch fall in love. While every relationship is different, I think that Gomez and Morticia epitomize what a healthy relationship is like. They don’t try to change the other, and embrace their weirdness. They are deeply devoted to each other and their family. They’re not only not ashamed of who they are and what they have, but they’re proud of it.

  • Love this...so my question is, "Why don't we hear about Gomez and Morticia like we do Lizzie and Darcy or Romeo and Juliet?" Maybe we don't associate "weirdness" with relationship goals, which could signal a societal issue, I think. And this makes me think, "How weird is too weird?" when it comes to looking up to others' relationships as models or standards. Great topic. Lots of questions to consider. – kategasp 6 years ago
