We can get so wrapped up in the relationships on our favorite TV shows that it’s sometimes easy to forget we’re watching fictional love stories. Thankfully, the actors that portray the lovable Pearson family clan and their circle of friends on “This Is Us” seem to be just as lovable in real life as they are on the show. (Though married or dating other people, naturally.)

Here’s a look at the true “This Is Us” love stories. (Warning: There are season two spoilers ahead, if you haven’t watched it yet!)

 Characters: Randall and Beth Pearson

Rebecca and Jack know how to keep the romance alive, and Kate and Toby are adorable. But Randall and Beth give both couples a run for their money.
