17 “Cute” TV Relationships That Really Aren’t Cute At All
Lorelai and Christopher, Gilmore Girls
Gilmore Girls is not a show about women who know how to have stable relationships. Even so, Lorelai’s relationship with Christopher has to take the cake. Although Christopher is the father of Lorelai’s kid, the two never seem able to form a mutually beneficial bond.
Instead, there are plenty of drunken outbursts and late-night meetings. What’s more, Lorelai often keeps her interactions with Christopher a secret from Luke, the person she actually ends up with. Christopher and Lorelai have a long history, but that history doesn’t make them any more stable around one another. Instead, their time together is characterized by dysfunction.
