What I adore most about this relationship, not to get too SQUEE! about it, is that there are so few unabashed love stories in sitcoms today. You look at the vile "Rules of Engagement" or Brad Garrett's "Til Death," and all you see is the message that marriage is for suckers, love doesn't last and men only put up with women for the sex.
In Marshall and Lily, there's no pretending that Marshall doesn't love Lily beyond all else, or that they couldn't live without each other. To use a cliche, they're soulmates in the truest sense, and the way it's presented on-screen is pretty much genius because, in my opinion, it doesn't make you gag. Even Barney, archenemy of monogamy, can't help but be won over by the relationship.
Plus, I never want to see my boyfriends go to the bathroom and vice versa. They still have the deuce!
