For my money, Gomez and Morticia Addams are the height of #relationshipgoals. There is not a couple anywhere in the world as passionate, in tune, and enamored as these two. They're creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky, yes, but they're creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky together – that's the point. They know each other's kinks, quirks, and sweet spots and they're not afraid to be affectionate or proclaim their love for each other – sometimes inappropriately, but still. Wouldn't you love to have a relationship like this?
Maybe your boo likes being miserable (Heather knows this struggle). Maybe you're in love with somebody who's only happy when it rains. Whatever the case, know what makes your lover unhappy ... or happy.
That fabulous moment when you share an opinion without even looking at each other.
If Gomez and Morticia can teach us one thing, it's how to keep the passion alive...
...and how to be silly together. Serious. Dance together more, even if you're both bad at it.
This goes back to the spice thing, but remember, it's not all about sex.
Learn how to make every day our favorite holiday. If your favorite holiday is Halloween, then Gomez and 'Tish should definitely be your spirit couple.
Does your girl love having her ear nibbled? Is the boy of your dreams crazy about kissing? Does your partner in crime have a little pain kink? Figure it out.
Let your lover know how awesome s/he is. Say it often. Stroke the ego.
Partners need to compliment each other. Dating, married, hooking up, it doesn't matter. Say something sweet every once in a while.
Learning how your partner takes her/his coffee, if you prefer salt or pepper, your favorite takeout place, and all those little things – it's important. It shows that you're interested and that you care.
Seriously. Don't torture yourself.
Exactly. Your idea of torture might be your lover's idea of heaven. Also, Raul Julia's Gomez just makes my knees weak.
Even Gomez and Morticia had problems. They also had Pugsley so, you know, count yourselves lucky.
Remember, sometimes it's more important to listen than it is to speak. There will also come a point in your relationship where you just need to stfu.
There's a silver lining hiding behind every cloud ... and every raindrop.
And don't be afraid to ask your boo for what pleases you, either.
That reminds me ... Heather, I cannot tell you how grateful I am that our lifeless bodies will be rotting together for all eternity.
Plainly, sitcom Gomez and Morticia are just as passionate as the '90s couple – although I have to admit a preference for the chemistry between Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia, who were just ridiculously beautiful together. Still, the point remains the same: #relationshipgoals. No matter how kooky or spooky you are, there's someone out there for you. Have you found the Gomez to your Morticia?
