13 Stages Every Jesse & Becky 'Shipper Experiences When Watching 'Full House'
Before there were nicknames for 'shipping couples from television shows (LoVe from Veronica Mars, Snowberry from The Flash... you get the idea) there was a great love on television that melted every viewer's heart into globby clumps of glue. Before the term "'shipping" even existed in our communal conscious, we all 'shipped one of the most glorious and attractive television loves of all time. This love was the often tempestuous one of what is perhaps the most good looking couple in the entire universe, Uncle Jesse and Becky from Full House. From the moment their eyes first met, when Becky was just Danny's perky co-host, it was clear this coupling was going to provide some serious relationship goals. While their relationship was often awesome, it wasn't always perfect and that's why there are emotional stages of shipping Jesse and Becky — it was a bumpy ride, and sometimes we swooned with Becky, sometimes we cried with Jesse, and sometimes we laughed with the both of them. But, even so, it was always a wonderful ride.
At first, when Jesse laid his soulful and bad boy eyes on Becky, we were all a bit jealous. Sure, we were all children and Uncle Jesse isn't a real person, but that didn't change anything. Then, we all soon came to realize that this was bigger than us and so we all began to 'ship this couple before we even knew 'shipping was a thing. Here are 13 of the emotions 'shippers of Becky and Jesse have been through over the course of Full House.

We knew it was going to happen and we couldn't handle the wait.
3. The "Why Did You Get Her Those Earrings So Early On" Discomfort

They love each other and miss each other so of course they got back together. And we all were all able to breathe again.
10. The Fear When They Got Engaged Again
