Ross and Rachel. Rachel and Ross. That’s been one heck of a see-saw, hasn’t it? The Friends duo went through many up and many downs (as well as that awkward Joey/Rachel storyline), but the two characters finished the sitcom as a definite couple.
Yet what happened after Friends finished? Did Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) and Ross (David Schwimmer) stay together and raise Emma as a family? Or was a break inevitable? Sitcom co-creator David Crane has settled the debate when questioned at The Wrap’s comedy showrunners panel: “Yes. Come on, they worked really hard, ten years.

It’s also likely that Ross and Rachel got hitched a second time (hopefully not doodle-covered and in Vegas): in the Friends spinoff Joey, Tribbiani mentions that his friends got married, referencing Ross and Rachel.
There’s every reason why Emma and Ben wouldn’t have more siblings to play with, too. When asked about Ross and Rachel in 2012, Aniston told THR: “They’re absolutely, 100 percent together. They have more kids!”
Turns out Phoebe was right, they were lobsters all along.
