That '70s Show: 5 Reasons Jackie Should Have Been With Kelso (And 5 Why Fez Was The Right Choice)

That '70s Show will forever be remembered for Red's hilarious "foot in the ass" catchphrases along with the gang's teenage basement antics. Yet one of the key ingredients that kept the series alive for so long came from the various romantic relationships, with many romances blooming down in Eric Forman's basement. Two of the big relationships on That '70s Show came from Jackie and Kelso, along with Jackie and Fez. Was Fez the right choice for her? Or would she have been better off with Kelso? Read on to find out!

10 KELSO - ASHTON KUTCHER AND MILA KUNIS ARE MEANT TO BE TOGETHER

Although these two beloved actors are playing fictional characters on That ' Show and they are not placed in the series for the purpose of emulating reality, it is no secret that Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are meant to be together. Kunis (Jackie Burkhart) is married to Kutcher (Michael Kelso) in real life, and they have two beautiful children together.

It was revealed in an interview that Mila Kunis' first kiss was shared with Ashton Kutcher on the set of That '70s Show and he would also turn out to be the last person who she will ever lock lips with. How romantic is that? This is why these characters would be perfect as an endgame couple because art imitates life, and all that good stuff.

9 FEZ -  WHO DOESN'T LOVE IT WHEN THE UNDERDOG WINS?

Although Fez is kind and giving in nature throughout the series, he always gets the short end of the stick. Meanwhile, Kelso is a character who constantly gets his way, and then some. Michael can be greedy with his desires, which is why he so often cheats on Jackie.

Although Kelso loves her, he has no impulse control. Fez, on the other hand, never gets his way which is why it is pretty rewarding when he finally manages to get the girl of his dreams. It's always nice when the underdog character is able to eventually find happiness and success, because they usually deserve it more than the opposing character.

8 KELSO - JACKIE AND KELSO HAVE MORE SIMILAR LIFESTYLES

Although we've learned from '80s rom-coms and Paula Abdul that "opposites attract," when it comes to practical matters, sometimes it is better to be with someone who shares a lifestyle that is more similar to your own. Jackie and Kelso seem to be living on the same planet of the self-obsessed, where their concerns constantly center around shallow matters. For example, looks and popularity rank at the top of the list when it comes to their deepest priorities in life. Because they both live in this shallow universe of the popular and vein crowd, it might make more sense for them to end up together in the long run.

7 FEZ - FEZ AND JACKIE CAN HELP EACH OTHER GROW

By the same token, if people in a relationship are too similar, it can often be difficult for the two to evolve or grow. When it comes to Fez and Jackie, they are two totally different people with their own unique values and desires. Because of this, they can learn from each other's differences and thus help each other grow into more open-minded individuals with more diverse outlooks on any given matter. Jackie can teach Fez how to improve socially, while Fez can teach Jackie how to appreciate deeper matters.

6 KELSO - JACKIE AND KELSO HAVE A TON OF HISTORY TOGETHER

Jackie and Kelso may have experienced the occasional bump in the road during the course of their on-again, off-again relationship, but there is no denying the extensive history that these two share with one another.  They have been dating for quite some time and they truly seem to love each other while they are together. And even when they aren't together, the affection is still there. They essentially grew up side by side and they know each other like no one else. It is uncertain whether or not Jackie and Fez share the same intense and passionate history in comparison to what she has with Kelso.

5 FEZ - JACKIE AND FEZ STARTED OUT AS FRIENDS

They say that the best relationships start off as friendships. This makes sense, because the foundation of any healthy and happy romance stems from a deep friendship with the other person. If you can't be friends with them, then do you truly respect your partner? The fact that Jackie and Fez have been friends for so long indicates that their relationship goes beyond shallow concerns. They are with each other because they truly know each other. They have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly, yet they still want to be together. This indicates maturity and growth from both Jackie and Fez.

4 KELSO - NOTHING ABOUT JACKIE AND KELSO'S RELATIONSHIP SEEMED FORCED

One of the biggest complaints about Jackie and Fez ending up together was that their romance seemed to be forced. Many fans of the series will claim that it felt as though the writers of That '70s Show just stuck the two together as a last-minute decision. Jackie and Kelso, on the other hand, felt like a much more natural couple and we could really feel their chemistry radiating from the screen. With Jackie and Fez, their relationship felt more like an afterthought.

3 FEZ - FEZ IS MORE INTERESTED IN COMMITMENT THAN KELSO

Although Jackie might seem like a spoiled girl with superficial desires, what she really wants at the end of the day is to be in a loving and committed relationship with someone who treats her like a goddess. While Kelso has shown over and over again that he is not the "commitment type," Fez, on the other hand, has consistently shown us that he is.

We have seen Fez in a few relationships where he stayed fully committed to his current girlfriend and never seemed to have a wandering eye. This is the kind of romantic partner that Jackie has always yearned for.

2 KELSO - KELSO AND JACKIE HAVE A DEEP UNDERSTANDING FOR ONE ANOTHER

Michael Kelso admits that nobody understands him the way Jackie does. This rings true to what we have seen from the two of them, as they seem to really get each other in ways that not many other people can. While most people see Kelso as a handsome airhead who has the brains of a goldfish, Jackie is able to get a deeper sense of who he really is as a person. She adores him and he, in turn, feels the same about her. While others might make fun of them for their values and actions, Jackie and Kelso have each other's backs the entire time.

1 FEZ - FEZ IS ABLE TO MEET JACKIE'S LOVE NEEDS

It is essential in a relationship that you find a partner who is able to meet and fulfill your love needs. It's heartbreaking to watch throughout the series as every guy that Jackie dates seems to take her for granted in one way or another. Neither Kelso nor Hyde could give Jackie the time and attention that she desperately desired, often dismissing her needs in order to satisfy their own. Fez, on the other hand, is able to give Jackie Burkhart everything she has ever wanted, and he is perfectly happy doing so.
