Full House's Lori Loughlin Still Gets Asked Why She Didn't Marry John Stamos

Becky and Jesse kissing in Fuller House

Full House is a 90s classic that has somehow survived the test of time. The family friendly cheese of the original series still delights its generations of fans, as repeats have been played constantly on syndication since the show's original run ended in 1995. The iconography of Full House was still so relevant in modern pop culture that Netflix ended up bringing the cast back together for the revival series Fuller House. But there is a downside to the still rabid fandom, according to actress Lori Loughlin. Namely, that everyone wishes she married co-star John Stamos.

Oh yes, whenever I post something with my husband, people will write comments. I laugh now, I think its funny. They're like, 'You should've married John!'

It looks like people still really want to see Aunt Becky and Uncle Jesse together. And while Full House fans know they're just actors doing their jobs, I guess their sweeping love story transcends logic and time.

Lori Loughlin's comments are sure to delight those of us who grew up watching Full House. In the original sitcom, Jesse and Becky's romance was basically the main love story. Sure, Danny occasionally had a girlfriend, but the audience was never quite as invested in anyone else's love lives. Fans watched as the young couple fell in love, and eventually wed-- complete Jesse and the Rippers' song "Forever". I mean, look at these guys.

With magic like that, it's no wonder that 90s kids everywhere want Lori Loughlin and John Stamos to be together in real life. And while they remain close and have continued working together in Fuller House, they're not a couple IRL.

In her conversation with ET, Lori Loughlin reminds everyone that she'd been happily married to husband Mossimo Giannulli for twenty years. Soon John Stamos is about to follow in those shoes as well. Stamos is currently engaged to fiancee Caitlin McHugh, and the couple are expecting their first child. Uncle Jesse is going to have to get very parental in the near future, and it seems like straight out of an episode of the original series. Ff the fandom is still hoping that he and Loughlin become a couple, then they'll also be hoping that Stamos ends up having twin boys.

Fuller House is currently streaming in its entirety on Netflix, including 9 episodes with Lori Loughlin's Aunt Becky.
