Screw Romeo and Juliet. Give me a Morticia and Gomez Addams kind of love. This couple may be spooky, strange and totally unconventional, but their love story is one for the ages. Originally created by cartoonist Charles Addams, this couple has been depicted numerous times on both the small and big screens. Perhaps their most memorable performance was in 1991’s “The Addams Family” and 1993’s “Addams Family Values,” which cast acclaimed actors Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston as the macabre lovers. Take a peek at their 13 most romantic moments and let us know your favorite passionate exchange between this pair in the comments section on social media.
Gomez’s Love for Morticia
In one of the movie’s first scene, we’re introduced to this couple’s passionate love. Seriously, these are all things that we could only dream of the love of our life saying and more.
We’re living for this couple’s on brand meet cute story. And then they start to talk about their plans for the afterlife, and while we’re a bit grossed out, it’s still very sweet.
This is a lot of passion for a local auction, especially considering their betting on their own finger trap. But we’ve got to give it for the couple showing PDA in the strangest places.
It’s clear that this couple has been practicing this choreography for years. And the result is seriously spectacular and just the right amount of extra.
Gomez Rescues Morticia
Even in a time of crisis, Morticia and Gomez find time for romance. Seriously, you can’t take these two anywhere.
The Birth of Their Third Child
Okay, we’ve got to admit that this one is pretty unrealistic. After all, most women are probably cursing their husbands out while giving birth. But, these two have never been about conformity.
Their Reactions to the School Play
Gomez and Morticia are not only supportive of each other, but their children as well. And when it came to Pugsley and Wednesday’s performance, they couldn’t be more proud of the drama, violence and fountains of fake blood.
The Rose Garden
When Morticia said “Don’t torture yourself Gomez, that’s my job,” we all knew what she was implying.
Waking the Dead
Every family has their unique traditions. And for the Addams family, it’s waking the dead, of course!
Morticia and Gomez are both very supportive of each other, through good times and bad. When Gomez is distraught over Fester’s behavior, she comforts him by reminding them of their romantic honeymoon.
Gomez’s Support of Morticia
Their support of each other goes both ways and we were touched when Gomez comforted Morticia about some of the stress she’s been experiencing as a modern woman.
Their Disdain for Camp Chippewa
I was never a fan of camp either and this couple’s quick wit is no match for the Chippewa yuppies.
Every Time Gomez Looks at Morticia
Seriously, what I’d give for a guy to look at me this way.
