List RulesVote up the TV characters who deserved more.

As in real life, TV romance is hardly perfect. But some small-screen relationships seem especially mismatched, and TV characters who deserve better partners remain fodder for endless debate. The best television characters are flawed, just like real people, which makes them both believable and lovable. So, naturally, their relationships tend to be imperfect, too.

But some of these TV characters' respective partners are just plain jerks - or unfaithful, or unworthy in some way, or someone's high school teacher (Ezra, you know who you are). Whatever the reason, the fan favorites on this list could certainly do better.

Beloved TV shows from the past and present feature love interests with terrible partners. Which mismatched TV couple riles you the most?
