The Top 10 Couples In The Walking Dead

This Sunday, February 14, AMC is celebrating Valentine’s Day with the return of The Walking Dead for the second half of its sixth season. It’s fitting, because there have been plenty of romantic relationships in The Walking Dead. And they all have one thing in common.

They’re doomed. All of them. Every single romance on this show will end in heartbreak.

That’s not a spoiler, it’s simply the reality of the world in which they live. In The Walking Dead, the living are far outnumbered by shall we say… the living impaired. At some point, everyone is gonna die. Especially if there are ever any difficult contract negotiations with the cast!

So, why even bother loving someone in world that’s designed to destroy that romance? Well, why do anything if the world’s gone to s***? Just because we know the ending doesn’t mean that the characters can’t carve a little piece of happiness out this unrelenting misery. Think about it: if you had to deal with the end of the world in your every waking moment, wouldn’t you rather have someone to love in whatever time you had left?

Another consideration to keep in mind is that nobody has your back like a romantic partner. The most successful couples on The Walking Dead have adapted to their surroundings and they can often defend each other at the first sign of trouble. Nothing says “I love you” like taking out the walker that was about to chow down on your beloved.
