Here’s Why We Think Riverdale’s Betty and Jughead Are Relationship Goals

There are plenty of relationships and couplings on The CW’s Riverdale, especially between the primary four characters of Archie, Jughead, Veronica, and Betty. However, of all the pairs we have met in this show, perhaps the one that seems the strongest and most likely to last comes from Jughead and Betty.

For fans of the couple affectionately known as Bughead, this is a relationship that has weathered plenty of storms, including a temporary breakup. Through all of the ups and downs, Jughead and Betty have proven that of all the relationships on Riverdale, they may just have what it takes to survive all of the mysteries, drama, and murder in this town.

It is their strength and ability to weather all of the storms that Riverdale throws their way that makes Betty and Jughead our relationship goals. But of course that’s not the only reason we love this couple.

They have each other’s backs at all times

No matter what comes up, Jughead and Betty always have each other’s back. Whether it is with their parents, their friends, or the latest mystery in town, these two never give up on each other and make sure that if the other is in need, they are there for them as best as they can be.

And even when they are separated, they are always thinking of each other, and trying to do what they think is best (and most helpful) for the other. Which is exactly how all relationships should be.

They defend each other’s actions

Even if they don’t agree with what the other person is doing, they defend each other and try to help in whatever way they can. From Jughead playing Gryphons and Gargoyles, much to the disapproval of Betty, to Betty calling a meeting of all the Riverdale parents, these two don’t always see eye to eye, but they still try to offer support.

They started as friends

Before they ever became a couple, Betty and Jughead were friends, even if there did seem to be feelings on his part. And we all think that being friends first can strengthen a relationship. It is because of their initial friendship that we not only believe in their relationship, but also think that they have what it takes to handle all the drama and conflict that comes their way.

They make a great team

Even before they were a couple, these two made a great team. They have always been able to communicate with each other, even when it seems like they can’t speak to each other. Together they have helped solve murders, find out who is behind many of the nefarious plans around town, and even help their friends with their own love lives. Simply put, they are always working together, which is the key to any strong relationship.

They take time for romance

No matter what is happening in their lives, they always take time for a little romance. Whether it is a stolen kiss, phone calls, or other showings of love, these two know how to keep their romance alive. And that is definitely something we should all take note of.

They have pet names for each other

Betty and Jughead even have pet names for each other, and have referenced each other in loving ways since the very beginning. In fact, at the start of their relationship when they shared their first kiss, Jughead called Betty his Juliet. And throughout the series, Betty often calls him Juggie. We love pet names and always think it’s a cute sign of affection in any relationship.

Honestly, it is hard to put into words all the reasons we love Jughead and Betty together. Week after week on Riverdale, these two are able to show the world that as a couple they work, and that no matter is happening in their lives, they are in it for the long haul. Even when distance separates them, these two find a way back to each other time and time again.

We don’t know about you, but we consider these two relationship goals and a solid example of making love work no matter what. And perhaps the icing on this relationship cake is the fact that the actors who play these characters are dating in real life, which means art imitates life, at least in terms of love.
