America we’re glad you can finally join the club. In a ruling that gave a long-sought victory to the gay rights movement, the United States Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 Friday that the Constitution requires same-sex couples be allowed to marry no matter what state they live in.
When thinking of all the couples out there that can now legally marry our minds naturally wandered into the television world–we are TV Junkies after all! So now that same-sex marriage is legal nationwide in the United States, here are the TV couples we want to see go ahead and take the plunge!
Bo and Lauren – Lost Girl
With the final season on the horizon, Bo and Lauren appear ready to ride off into the sunset, ready to start their post-series life together. Although same-sex marriage is already legal in Canada, now that Bo and Lauren can get married anywhere in the majority of the North American continent, what else could be stopping them? Yes, there’s that small obstacle of Bo needing more than just Lauren to stay alive, but we’re talking about Lauren–what kind of great Fae doctor would she be if she can’t figure out an antidote to solve that problem? Go for it, ladies! Oh Boy indeed!
Delpine and Cosima – Orphan Black
Although that Season 3 finale left us hanging onto our hearts and emotions, Delphine and Cosima, assuming that they will both survive this wonderfully addicting series, should definitely walk down the aisle. Yes, they may have had their ups and downs, but one thing is perfectly clear: their love is stronger than anything Dyad can throw at them and there’s no time like the present!
Ian Gallagher and Mickey Milkovich – Shameless
These two might not be the healthiest couple on the show–they beat each other up, and others as well–but they are meant to be. There’s no one else on that show that could survive what these two have endured…and now they can get married! There’s no denying that wedding could be the best possible train-wreck of a party that we all would just love to watch. C’mon, who else would love to see what a Gallagher-Milkovich wedding would be like?
Gail and Holly – Rookie Blue
OK, sure, there is the minor complication that these two have broken up and are now living in separate countries, but isn’t that the sort of obstacle great love stories are made of? Season 6 has Gail focusing on her adoption of little Sophie and should that go through, who out there doesn’t want to see Holly return from San Francisco for Season 7? With their marriage and the adoption this could be the perfect little family for Gail Peck and we’re already imagining family outings to the batting cases for the trio.
Connor and Oliver – How to Get Away With Murder
Their relationship didn’t start out on the best of terms, and frankly given the way things ended in the Season 1 finale things still aren’t all rainbows and kittens. But there’s just something about this hot law student and seemingly-nerdy IT guy that has us wanting everything to work out in the end. Given Oliver’s diagnosis at the end of Season 1 we see an angst-filled Season 2 ahead for this couple but we’re secretly hoping they tie the knot as Connor chooses to stand by his man and help him through this rough time.
