''Perfect Couples'' is an Creator/{{NBC}} SitCom focusing on three not-so-perfect couples: Dave and Julia (the [[StraightMan normal]] couple), Vance and Amy (the [[AdultChild childish]], [[BelligerentSexualTension passionate]] couple), and Rex and Leigh (the new-agey, StepfordSmiler couple). The three couples are linked together by Julia and Rex being siblings and Dave and Vance being friends from childhood. Basically, it's three {{Dom Com}}s for the price of one.

* AdultChild: Vance and Amy are both basically overgrown teenagers.
** This sort of comes back to bite them when they realize they need someone sane in the relationship. Because they ''both'' left each other at alter.
