Television shows are filled with dysfunctional relationships. It makes sense, considering that romantic relationships are featured in almost every show on tv, and drama and conflict helps ratings. Sadly though, many of the most toxic relationships are also ones that viewers see as incredibly romantic. Even if these relationships sometimes seem romantic, viewers should take a closer look and see that they are extremely unhealthy, and that they shouldn’t cheer for these couples to stay together.
15. Carrie and Big, “Sex and the City”
Carrie and Big are the epic love of the series according to many fans, but their relationship is far from perfect. From season one until the end of the second movie, viewers see them somehow survive 10 years of on-again off-again turmoil. Big says he never wants to get re-married when he’s with Carrie, but shortly after they split up, he marries someone else. He cheats on his wife with Carrie, and she cheats on Aiden with Big. Big always wanted her most when she was happy with someone else. In the movies that were released after the series ended, he stood her up on their wedding day. Throughout the series, they hurt each other countless times and they brought out the worst in each other, yet countless fans were praying for them to end up together at the end of the series, and they did.© HBO/ Courtesy: Everett
