Me too, they were one of the few couples I could see getting to lead a regular happy life together

Yeah it was.
Xander didn`t want to end up like his parents (who fought almost all the time) so yeah that´s why he said no which is understandable but kinda sad too because it´s not carved in stone that Xander would be like his father when he´s married.

I can certainly see why that was a concern for him honestly Very human and very easy to relate to for a lot of people out there

I think a lot of people don't understand the extent of Xander's parental issues. They didn't just fight a lot, his father was clearly emotionally abusive & probably physically abusive on occasion too. He was pretty traumatized by all that & never really dealt with it, so it was going to come out in some way eventually....unfortunately that happened by pushing Anya away

^ Agreed. Because they never really came out and had it the specific plotline of an entire episode, it gets brushed over by a lot of fans

I know, it's a shame because it is so obvious when you look at the signs, but because there were never an episode that really delved into it, people just don't seem to get it/forget

I think that it's incredibly difficult for anyone growing up in that kind of situation, where they only relationship role model in their life is two people that fight & drink all the time to go on & try to forge their own healthy relationships in their adult life. Of course Xander had trouble with it all.

I think it's one of those things that gets forgotten about by a lot because of their dislike of Xander. When you dislike a character, it's a lot easier to not recognize things that others pick up on

Yeah, it's obviously a bias. I can't imagine how much it would be brought up if it were some other characters & how much people would try to excuse the bad things their fave characters have done...
