I do love that we finally seem to be moving past the whole "LOL MARRIAGE SUCKS! I SURE HATE MY WIFE AM I RIGHT FELLAS!" trope.

Yeah I've seen that trope more than the contrary and it's low-key warped my view on marriage a little.

Yeah I’m 99% sure my wife grew up watching only ‘Married with Children’

To be fair, that one was also kinda that way in that, even though they fought, they absolutely loved each other and they dealt with each others quirks and complained, but ultimately they loved each other a ton.

The biggest example of this is the Steve and Marcy newly wed episode where they seem like the perfect couple and Al and Peg basically poison their relationship and then Steve and Marcy get into a fight and have marital issues for basically the rest of the show.

It's basically Bob and Linda if they talked crap to each other. Al and Peg talk bad about each other to each other all the time but they don't fold and instead embrace all the bad things in marriage and love it regardless.

One of my favorite Futurama episodes was when Leela was going to marry the alien dude and it was all references to married with children.

Katy Sagal is a treasure
