The dating scene is tough to break into when your job demands wonky hours and call times at 2 a.m. Maybe that's why so many TV stars date their coworkers.
Hey, it's not like they don't have anything in common, right?
But things get a little weird when a real life couple doubles as a on-screen couple. To insanely dedicated fandoms, it's hard to tell where art is imitating life and vice versa.
At least for those 'shippers who border on a little too dedicated (you know who you are, The Vampire Diaries fans ... don't even try to look the other way)!
Take a look above at 21 famous couples on TV and in life and make note of which ones you knew of, which you didn't, and which stood the test of time.
While some of these real life relationships were as short as the seasons in which the on-camera romances took place, others were slightly more successful.
