17 “Cute” TV Relationships That Really Aren’t Cute At All
Meredith and Derek, Grey’s Anatomy
Meredith and Derek are meant to be the true love relationship at the center of Grey’s Anatomy. The problem is, the foundation for that relationship is more than a little icky. Derek is an attending at Seattle Grace, and Meredith is an intern. That leads to an imbalance in power that is tough to reckon with now, especially when you look at how he pursued her after she clearly stated she wasn’t interested.
What’s more, Derek doesn’t reveal that he’s married. When he’s forced to choose between Meredith and his wife, he chooses his wife. MerDer may have lived happily ever after together, but Derek is also a cheating husband who possibly abused his power at work to have an affair. Not a great lewk.
