Besides Ross and Rachel, Cory and Topanga are the most iconic couple of the 90s and early 00s. They were actual childhood sweethearts and had more love for each other than most people feel in a lifetime. Here's ten reasons why they're the definition of "relationship goals."
1. They accept each other
Even when Topanga was going through her weird hippie phase and Cory and Shawn thought she came from another planet, Cory still thought it was kinda cool that no matter what, Topanga stayed true to herself. And Topanga loved Cory just the way he was with his curly hair, goofy attitude, inseparable best friend, and all.
2. Fighting makes them stronger
Cory and Topanga didn't go without their fair share of spats. When they had issues, they didn't go running, they worked them out. They communicated with each other to solve the problem and come out even stronger in the end.
3. They always forgive each other
Sure they both made some mistakes along the way (hey, Cory, remember when you kissed that girl on the ski trip?), but they always cooled off, talked it out, and forgave each other.
4. They understand each other
Sure, knowing each other since you were babies is a big plus in understanding someone, but Cory and Topanga had a deep understanding of each other so they could always tell what the other was feeling.
5. They are their own people
The beautiful thing about Cory and Topanga is that they don't rely on each other for their happiness. They are two complete people by themselves and create a whole couple together. When they were broken up, they missed each other but they didn't stop living their separate lives. Whatever they did, it worked out for them.
6. They never give up
Cory and Topanga broke up and got back together countless times throughout the series but they never wanted to be apart from each other. When Topanga was sure their relationship could survive, Cory reminded her of all the reasons they were perfect for each other. When Topanga was supposed to move away, she came up all the way back and showed up at Cory's house in the pouring rain. When everyone told them they were too young to get married, they proved them wrong.
7. They love each other unconditionally
Cory and Topanga have been together forever and have more love for each other than any other fictional couple on television. They've been through everything together, including many breakups, and never stopped loving each other.
