Which TV Couple Are You?

Is your spouse more of a nerd, like Leonard from The Big Bang Theory, or a bad boy like Bill in True Blood? Find out with our quiz.

Mostly A’s: Bill and Sookie, True Blood

Your relationship is always new and exciting! You never know what to expect and every day is a different adventure. Like Bill, your partner keeps you interested and excited for days ahead with him. He is protective but still lets you have independence. While some people don’t get why you’re together, you both totally understand each other and won’t let any obstacle stand in the way.

Mostly B’s: Phil and Claire, Modern Family

Phil always tries to make Claire happy --just like your spouse. Sure, he can sometimes come off as goofy, but that’s what you love most about him. When things get too serious at work, he’ll do anything to cheer you up. When things don’t go your way, he’ll always brainstorm ideas for you two to try. His focus is on you and the relationship --making him the perfect guy for you.

Mostly C’s: Leonard and Penny, The Big Bang Theory

Like Leonard and Penny, you two are seemingly very different -- you have different friends, tastes, and even interests. But you both have similar values and connect on a deeper level -- it’s like you’re on the same wavelength. It may have taken a while for you two to get together (you didn’t peg him right away as your match), but once you realized your feelings you knew nothing would be the same. You value his intelligence and his ability to introduce you to new and different things because, admit it --you’re a geek on the inside too!

Mostly D’s: Mike and Susan, Desperate Housewives

Your spouse keeps you grounded and that’s what you love about him. While you can sometimes lose your cool, he always keeps his and can take charge in any situation (only if you let him, of course). He puts you and your needs first, and is always a gentleman. You two work because you both complement each other -- while it may not always seem like a match made in heaven, it totally works for you!
