7 Reasons Why Kev and V are the Best TV Couple
Steve Howey

"Shameless" has been one of the most successful, long lasting series with it's uncontainable story lines and brazen characters. Individually, Kev and V are two of the most beloved characters, but together, they're the ultimate power couple. In fact, it's uncomfortable to realize that their actors actually aren't dating in real life.

Seamlessly, they shape our relationship goals and remind us how important love is. With so much toxic media we consume, it's a breath of fresh air to see these two happy and strong together despite the chaos that accompanies the show. Celebrating love, here are seven reasons why Kev and V are the best couple you can find onTV.

1. They slay expectations.

Well, they are one of the only television couples who've shared a polyamory relationship. Kev and V show that following social expectations isn't necessary. Even in the first season, they make this clear when we find out that they make porn. From there, the rest is history.

2. Nothing gets between them.

Not even V's mom, Carol, is conceiving with Kevin or Svetlana performing her "wifely duties" and digging her way in to their relationship. No matter the situation, they trust each other and find a way to make it work.

3. They're both hysterical.

You just wait for them to appear in scenes. Of course the Gallaghers keep you on your toes, but these two keep the ball rolling. Kev literally does this in his new career path.

4. Independence is key.

They support each other but are not utterly dependent on each other. Both have their own goals and ideals so their characters exist and function on their own spectrum. Neither needs the other to exist. Their companionship just makes everything so much better.

5. They call each other out!

Any functioning couple is going to disagree. No matter how heated they get, they'll never hold a grudge. Once their steam cools, they always find a way to compromise. Things that would have broken up others only makes them stronger and smarter.

6. They represent interracial couples.

It would be ideal for race to (actually) not be relevant, but the fact that they are an interracial pair is so essential in this day and age. TV neglects to represent the broad and incredibly diverse population that our country celebrates. Their portrayl is not only realistic, but refreshing.

7. No start or end.


Just always. They match each other so perfectly that it's like they've always existed together. Since episode one, their relationship has been flawless and it getting better.

Through thick and thin, this couple stands together. I don't know who your favorite "Shameless" couple is, but I am definitely for Kev and V all the way.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
