One of the most iconic sitcoms from the past decades is Married with Children. Unlike other classic sitcoms centered around a family, like I Dream of Jeannie or Bewitched, this show approached family life in a slightly different way.
Most shows during those decades focused on healthy, happy families overcoming exceptional (or sometimes average) circumstances. Married With Children, however, took that plot and turned it on its head. It portrayed a family of odd and often unlikable characters with a completely dysfunctional dynamic – but with plenty of humor and heart. And the amazing ensemble cast capturing this dynamic is what truly made this show such a success. Let’s take a look at where these talented actors are today.

If there was a main character to the show, it would be Al Bundy. He’s the father, the everyman, and much of the show centers around his life.
He plays the role of father, husband, worker, and unlike other famous husbands in sitcoms, he loves a cold brew, has a love-hate relationship with his wife, and often flounders when it comes to his children. He’s a shoe salesman, and often thinks back on his youth and wishes he had done more with his life. Who can’t relate to that?
