The theme of relationships is one that follows Gilmore Girls almost as much as friendships. Fans were wondering if Luke and Lorelai were going to end up together from season 1 and let’s not forget about the love triangle that Rory was trapped in between Dean and Jess. Interestingly, when relationships progressed to something more serious, arguments began to break out between the couples. The strangest thing is that these arguments often end in proposals.
For most couples, their commitments arose out of anger and fear or resulted in confusion and despair. Alternatively, a fight quickly followed their engagement. Instead of the typical love stories, Gilmore Girls made his romances more complex.

After evaluating each other, Max became so jealous that he asked Lorelai to marry him because maybe then they would stop arguing.
