And we've cheered when it looks like they've finally found the path to everlasting happiness together.
But like everything on television, sometimes the cruel hand of fate doesn't want anyone to be happy - fictional television couples or their fans.
Here are 19 TV couples who never got their happy ending because death got in the way!
Jon and Daenerys - Game of Thrones
Who cares what their familial relationship was. They should have been together forever, but Daenerys' thirst for power was too dangerous and needed to end. At least it was Jon who put an end to her reign of terror.
Vic and Ripley - Station 19
We're still shedding tears over the end of Vicley. Chief Ripley and Vic's secret relationship was one of the most intense ever. They were made for each other which is why death was so utterly painful for all of us.
Sara and Snart - DC's Legends of Tomorrow
Okay, so maybe they weren't in a relationship, but they should have been. They always liked each other, but when he sacrificed himself for the team, all hopes of a Captain Canary pairing was lost forever.
Anna and Severide - Chicago Fire
Severide has had many loves, but Anna could have been the one who would have had his heart forever. Their romance began when he went through a painful procedure to donate bone marrow for her cancer battle. They fell in love, had an on-again-off-again long distance relationship, and just when it seemed they might be headed in the right romantic direction, her cancer came back, and she died. A heartbreaking blow, to say the least.
Glenn and Maggie - The Walking Dead
Maggie and Glenn had been through a lot together having to live in hell on earth, but they survived, and their love grew stronger every day. Just when they were approaching one of the happiest times of their lives -- the upcoming birth of their first child together -- Negan came along with his friend Lucille and destroyed it all.
Derek and Meredith - Grey's Anatomy
This rollercoaster relationship lasted for nearly nine years until it finally ended when Derek died. It was heartbreaking for a couple who had been through so much drama together, but as with almost everything on television, nothing lasts forever.
