Team Betty

Archie and Betty were made for each other. Or at least I thought they were. Maybe Archie doesn't deserve her. The jerk.

Betty, I weep with you.

Issue #600 is not going to be a pretty one.

But whether you're in Betty or Veronica's corner – and let's face it, most of us have a gut response – Archie's choice of life-partner urges us to look inward. What does the couple we root for say about us?

Perhaps more than we realize, relationships expert Marion Goertz says.

“People who vote for Veronica-Archie are the idealists, the people who say, ‘I'm voting for the glitz, the glamour, the high energy, the sexiness, the ideal [and] they might not even care so much that it'll only last five years,'” says the Toronto-based registered family, marriage and sex therapist.

Those who yearn to see Archie and Betty get hitched take a more realistic, traditional view, she says. They're more grounded, are thinking long term and have more of a sense of “for always and forever.”

Yep. I'm grounded and thinking long-term. I'm traditional. I'm Betty.

After playing games with their hearts for 67 YEARS, he ditches the heart of gold for the vixen. My money's on a broken engagement.

Betty, get yourself a real man. Don't let Archie Andrews come crawling back.

Okay, I'm done now. And determined to never date a fictional redhead.
