Ross and Rachel may have been the star couple of Friends, but it was Monica and Chandler's relationship that was, perhaps, the most relatable. They were silly when they felt like it, and serious when it counted. They could dance with turkeys on their heads, and make one too many bad jokes, and never feel judged for being who they really are in front of each other. In short, Monica and Chandler are #relationshipgoals, especially after re-watching the series on Netflix. Who doesn't want to be a Monica or a Chandler? Who doesn't want to find their Chandler or Monica? Don't lie. You know you do.
What stood out to me the most about Monica and Chandler's relationship was their willingness to bend for each other. Monica's neatness was borderline insane, but when Chandler cleaned the apartment for her, she didn't freak out — she thanked him. Chandler was the ultimate commitment-phobe, but when it came to Monica, he pushed past his fear to be with the woman he loved. The Bings' relationship was just so right, thanks in great part to both parties' willingness to step out of their comfort zones for love — that, and the fact that they were total weirdos who weren't afraid to let their freak flags fly.
