17 Relationship Goals Inspired by Gomez and Morticia Addams ...

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?

1. Always Know when Your Lover is Unhappy … or, Er, Happy

(Your reaction) Thank you!

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.

2. The Couple Who Judges Together Stays Together

(Your reaction) Thank you!

That fabulous moment when you share an opinion without even looking at each other.

3. Dance like No One's Looking

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If Gomez and Morticia can teach us one thing, it's how to keep the passion alive...

4. No, Seriously, Forget the World and do Your Thing

(Your reaction) Thank you!

...and how to be silly together. Serious. Dance together more, even if you're both bad at it.

5. Never Let Your Lover Get Bored

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This goes back to the spice thing, but remember, it's not all about sex.

6. Learn How to Make Every Day a Holiday

(Your reaction) Thank you!

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.

7. Figure out Your Beloved's Favorite Kinks

(Your reaction) Thank you!

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.

8. Ladies, Always Compliment Your Gomez

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Let your lover know how awesome s/he is. Say it often. Stroke the ego.

9. Gentlemen, do the Same for Your Morticia

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Partners need to compliment each other. Dating, married, hooking up, it doesn't matter. Say something sweet every once in a while.

10. Learn about Each Other's Favorite Foods

(Your reaction) Thank you!

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.

11. Never Go to Bed on an Argument

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Seriously. Don't torture yourself.

12. Don't Be Afraid to Define Things for Each Other

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Exactly. Your idea of torture might be your lover's idea of heaven. Also, Raul Julia's Gomez just makes my knees weak.

13. Have a Realistic View of Your Relationship

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Even Gomez and Morticia had problems. They also had Pugsley so, you know, count yourselves lucky.

14. Always Know when to Shut up

(Your reaction) Thank you!

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.

15. Make the Most of Your Romantic Evenings – No Matter What the Weather

(Your reaction) Thank you!

There's a silver lining hiding behind every cloud ... and every raindrop.

16. Strive to Please Each Other

(Your reaction) Thank you!

And don't be afraid to ask your boo for what pleases you, either.

17. Promise to Love Each Other Forever

(Your reaction) Thank you!

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?
