The Battlin’ Williams are back. Tasha Smith and Michael Jai White reprise their roles created for Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married” films for TV. “For Better or Worse” heads into a second season starting on Friday, July 13 at 9 p.m. on TBS. You can expect the second season to proceed much as the first, as the Williams’ continue their dysfunctional marriage. You may not want to take your relationship cues from Angela and Marcus, but they always work things out. That got us to thinking about what TV marriages you could learn from. Here are five TV couples that illustrate how to get through some common relationship issues.
CLAIRE AND CLIFF HUXTABLE – “THE COSBY SHOW”
The Cosbys are an iconic TV couple for good reason. Played by Bill Cosby and Phylicia Rashad, the Huxtables were an upwardly mobile black family when some people didn’t believe they existed.

You never saw Cliff give Claire anything but the utmost respect, and even when the kids misbehaved, they weren’t belittled or punished in abusive ways; the Huxtables regarded those times as teaching moments. While everyone may not have the idyllic family dynamic and resources of a dual-professional couple, they can certainly incorporate respect for everyone into family life.
