Daphne and Niles (Frasier)

Who didn't breathe a sigh of relief when Niles Crane (David Hyde Pierce) and Daphne Moon (Jane Leeves) finally figured out that they were actually in love with each other? Things could have been so different if she hadn't left her future hubby's divorce lawyer Donny at that altar...


We almost needed several sessions with Frasier himself to de-stress after all that drama.

Zack and Kelly (Saved By The Bell)

If you grew up watching TV in the 1990s you'll never forget the moment Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Thiessen) broke up. Saved By The Bell's golden couple shattered millions of hearts when they split, leaving all of us wondering if that was REALLY it?

Thankfully (or not) Saved By The Bell: The College Years brought them back together, just in time for their very own Wedding In Vegas TV movie. All's well that ends bell, eh?

Chuck and Blair (Gossip Girl)

Three words. Eight letters. Say them and I'm yours. Gossip Girl fans fell head over heels for Chair as they went to war early in season one, but were left waiting quite a while for them to actually get their act together.

Endless flings, two rings and one royal wedding later, the pair finally gave in and tied the knot, much to the despair of Dair (Dan and Blair) fans everywhere. You know you love them though, XOXO.
