I know it's fiction, but "Bob's Burgers" is a great show to take life advice from. Tina reminds us to always go for what we want, even if it's completely unattainable. Louise reminds us to find opportunities in everything we do. Gene reminds us to not take everything so seriously. But the greatest lesson comes from Bob and Linda.
The relationship between Bob and Linda is always something that has caught my eye, mainly because it is not often we see a fictional TV couple work so well together. Unlike other animated TV show couples, Bob and Linda have an extremely normal relationship. They have a genuine love for each other and work well as a team.
One of my favorite things about this couple is that they're secure. In the first episode of the series, it's established that Linda left Hugo, the local health inspector, for Bob. Even though Bob's restaurant is going down the drain, Linda stands by her decision and is proud to tell that to her ex-fiance.
In addition to that, Bob and Linda are a couple that knows what it means to be supportive. Not only do they support their children in their many endeavors, but they also cheer each other on when it comes to new activities. When Linda gets her old high school band back together, Bob is there to cheer her on. When Bob desperately wants to join a garden club, Linda encourages him to do whatever it takes to get in, although she might've gone overboard when she suggested sleeping with the garden owner.
Bob and Linda are also pretty level-headed about their relationship. In one episode, Linda flashes thousands of people on a newscast to prove a point. Bob does not get angry about this once. In fact, that is not even the thing he's most worried about in that scene. Honestly, if that's not goals then I don't know what is. Don't get me wrong, these two know how to throw a few jabs at each other here and there, but it's always with a good heart behind it.
I'd be happy to have a relationship as secure and as fun as Bob and Linda's. They are the epitome of what it means to be all in when it comes to relationships.
