In its 10 long years, F.R.I.E.N.D.S. set out the examples for what a perfect couple must be. Chandler and Monica, Mike and Phoebe, Ross and Rachel, Joey and Food. They all clearly depicts what a perfect love must look like. Chandler overlooked Monica’s past with Richard and loved her like nothing else.

Ross and Rachel, the on and off couple of friends, never missed the opportunity to prove that true love never dies. And Joey’s obsession with food, that’s what love must look like.
