Highlights

Chandler and Monica were best friends, great partners and finally adorable parents, we can all imagine… Chandler being a strict father and Monica being a completely crazy mother right? We love all the couples in the show, Mike-phoebe were a great couple and so were our “WE WERE ON A BREAK” couple, but Mondler gave us major couple goals.

Everyone who has ever watched F.R.I.E.N.D.S know who Chandler and Monica are, the best friends turned lovers turned husband-wife. Amidst the chaos of Ross and Rachel’s confused relationship, Chandler and Monica fell in love and gave us some serious goals. Monica and Chandler’s storyline wasn’t even there in the writer’s mind but who knew that it would turn out to be so good. We all have seen the two most adorable relationships of the series which is RosChel and Mondler, but why are Chandler and Monica the Ultimate couple? Here’s why:

  • They were best friends –

Chandler and Monica were really good friends before they started dating each other. They knew each other really well, and were well aware of each other’s likes and dislikes, habits and fears. So, they hit it off easily and it also spared them the process of knowing each other. Most of us believe that it is a bad idea to date our best friends, but after seeing a couple like Chandler and Monica we all definitely need a Mondler to ourselves.

  • Accepting each other’s flaw –

One of the most important part of a relationship is accepting each other’s flaws. Monica Geller and her obsession with everything being perfect, her perfect image of marriage and of course her love for children; and Chandler Bing being the lazy, funny and commitment phobic guy. They both accepted each other’s flaws and eventually learned to live with them, A commitment phobic man and a perfectionist managed their relationship in a such a beautiful manner, and they never had to take “A BREAK”

  • Don’t expect your partner to change –

Mondler never forced each other to change themselves, in fact they were happy with who they were. After Chandler moves in with Monica, Monica doesn’t expect Chandler to become a cleanliness freak and neither does Chandler expect Monica to change her behaviour after he moves in. They never expected changes from each other, but with the relationship gradually becoming deeper maybe they put efforts in trying to make each other happy by doing things that the other likes, The part where Chandler cleans the house to make Monica happy which didn’t turn out to be a good idea, Monica being a perfectionist has issues with the way things in her house changed but she eventually puts everything back to where it belonged and yet appreciated Chandler’s effort to make her happy. There weren’t huge changes, but their efforts mattered a lot.

  • Compromise in the relationship –

Compromising for another is the biggest quality that one holds in a relationship, Monica who is the ultimate freak of being perfect had her whole wedding planned at the age of 5 and had even decided her wedding dress but she gave up her perfect wedding and dress so that Chandler could get his favourite band play at the wedding. Love is not always about you, and maybe sometimes giving up something of yours to make your partner happy is one of the best feelings. Monica understood this and that is why someone like her knew that Compromising in the key to a happy relationship.

  • Understanding each other –

Since they were best friends, they knew each other really well. They had a great understanding on how to handle things and how not to. From the moving in, to the wedding, to the conceiving of babies and finally to their perfect house. Initially their relationship was a secret, they did not want to spoil their friendship because they were hooking up with each other continuously after Ross’s wedding. They took time in understanding their relationship first and did not want to jump into it instantly and spoil whatever they have.

  • Supporting each other’s decisions –

Whether it was Chandler moving to Tulsa, or changing his job and pursuing his passion; or whether it was Monica becoming a head chef at Big Apple. They had each other’s back no matter what and never cribbed or made a big thing about it. They knew what was best for each other and that is why they were always in favour of each other. A quite a few jokes here and there, but they gave us major goals when it came to supporting each other.

  • Leaving the past behind –

They knew each other’s past really well and especially their exes, Monica’s obsessive love for Richard and Chandler’s loving Janice- OH MY GOD! Not only did they leave their exes behind, but they were never insecure about each other for what they had done in the past and always faced it together. Although, Chandler did get a little insecure about Richard after they started dating, but we all know who Monica loves and marries in the end.

  • Sticking together through thick and thin –

Throughout the entire series, the only couple who stuck through thick and thin no matter what came by was Monica and Chandler. We all know that they supported each other throughout, made long distance relationship work and finally when they were ready to have a baby, they got to know that they couldn’t have babies. It was heart-breaking for all of us, knowing Monica’s obsession of becoming a mother but they loved each other even more and never let any of that get into their relationship. They decided to adopt babies and make their family a happy family.

  • The Proposal –

Chandler has been commitment phobic since the very beginning and for him to actually propose the woman he loves is hands down a big thing, but it was not that easy and also with a hint of surprise. Chandler wasn’t the only one who went down on his knees, Monica surprised him by decorating the entire house because she had a hint that he was going to propose to her. It wasn’t a cliché man proposing to a woman, but both of them going down their knees to tell each other that they were ready to spend the rest of their lives together. Honestly, we all cried a bit during their proposal and it was one hell of a magical proposal.

  • Not every Love story is a Fairy tale –

Monica’s perfect love story did not start in a perfect way, from hooking up in the wedding, to the awkward moving in, to being crazy and totally a mess, to finally proposing each other, to adopting babies and finally moving in to their perfect house. Their love story had a lot of hurdles that they had to go through and by this we know that not all love stories are fairy tales. Sometimes, its okay to be just the way you are and just be happy.

Chandler and Monica were best friends, great partners and finally adorable parents, we can all imagine… Chandler being a strict father and Monica being a completely crazy mother right? We love all the couples in the show, Mike-phoebe were a great couple and so were our “WE WERE ON A BREAK” couple, but Mondler gave us major couple goals.
