Just one example of an emotionally healthy and realistic relationship model on a popular TV show?
As couples counselor I know and the best relationship science shows that too many relationship fail due to unrealistic expectations about what a healthy long term relationship really is and what it needs to thrive and survive.
I think this is largely because there are so many unhealthy (in every sense of the term) relationship attitudes and values portrayed in the popular media.
Can you think of just one positive and truly influential relationship role-model from any of the most popular current tv shows? If so, what makes them positive?
Leroy Jethro Gibbs' relationship with his team on NCIS
and it works because he is the leader, her is fair an he cares for all the others on his team. I realize you may have been looking for a love type relationship but the stories on TV today are horrible! people two timing one another, murderers, lying...they are all horrible! so, NCIS remains my #1 favorite!
Roseanne - The Connor family may not have been perfect but it was realistic. Sarcastic, funny, angry, bored, manipulative....all those things that every family goes through.
Not recent TV but the 80's Huxtable family. They dealt with their kids with a great sense of humor which we tried to do when raising our kids. The kids knew who was in charge, the parents formed a partnership and remained united when dealing with situations together.
It was a good model if it was fiction.
