Although new Hindi TV serials keep coming up on different channels, there were a few couples who we loved and talked about for years. That’s because we could relate to them and also pick up a hint or two for our own marital relationships from their lives.

1. Sooraj and Sandhya from Diya Aur Baati Hum

We all remember Bhabho and our favourite Sooraj and Sandhya from Diya Aur Baati Hum, right? Sandhya has dreams of becoming an IPS officer but they seem to shatter when she is married off to a young halwai, Sooraj. When her mother-in-law gets to know that Sandhya doesn’t know how to cook, Sooraj acts as a strong pillar of support for his wife.

Then unexpectedly, Priya is involved in an accident and her family thinks she has died. But she doesn’t die and starts a new life in the US under an alias (for reasons unknown).
