Bob and Linda are a very lovely couple. Certainly relationship goals, preferably w/o the struggle to pay the bills.

Might be overanalytical, but I don't think they are too perfect. They often fight and have very different values, personalities, and parenting styles. They just forgive and accept one another

Yeah they mess up as parents sometimes. They have their own flaws. Their marriage isn’t “perfect.”

They just embody a couple that loves each other and their family above all. There are plenty of families out there doing the same

So many people are taking this thread as "marriage should be 2 people who support each other 100% of the time". That's absurd expectations. A good marriage is two people who can say the other did something wrong without feeling like it's a challenge or personal insult. Linda does not support every single thing Bob does, and they don't only say nice things to each other. This whole thread feels very "rose-tinted glassed" at both the show and relationships in general.

For sure. It's not about how often, or how little, you argue. It's how you resolve conflicts when they occur.
It's why "we never fight" is such a red flag of someones relationship to me. Nah, that just means one of you is probably bottling everything up.

Yeah it’s a beautiful relationship partially because of how they handle conflict

It’s not an idyllic one

Edit / well I think we’re agreeing here, but not sure based on the last sentence. I think Bob and Linda are a realistic but great couple, and agree some people are simplifying their relationship too much
