Fans dont ship Dylan and Haley together
Hadley the Human took to the Modern Family Reddit page to ask fans to vote for their least favorite couple in the shows history. Racking up 2000 votes out of over 3600 Haley and her longtime on again off again boyfriend Dylan Marshall Reid Ewing took home the title. Looking back on Haleys story she spends a lot of time trying to find herself in relationships. She spends some time with Manny Andy Adam Devine before ultimately making a life with Dylan and its a decision that fans are not happy with. Ultimately they seem to agree that Dylan is just too immature for Haley. Both parties tended to grow and thrive when they were apart only to return to their bad habits when they were together again. Dylan was always just a romantic backup and their relationship was a high school thing and honestly it needed to stay there. All that progress with Haley was GONE in an instant xLadySayax wrote.
Fans also noted that they thought Haley and Dylan ending up together was lazy writing and made the characterization of the eldest sister on Modern Family suffer. They just made her a ditz she should have been single and dating or moved with Andy Andy pushed her to reach her goals and be a better person meghra wrote. Cam and Mitch came in second for the worst Modern Family couple with 1300 votes with most comments acknowledging Cams toxic behavior. Jay and Gloria only got just about 200 votes and Phil and Clare didnt even get 150 votes. It looks like Haley and Dylan won or lost depending on how you look at it by a landslide.
