I have to disagree! Maybe in the beginning that might of been the case but if you go back to the episode "Thelma's reunion" and to the scene where Thelma comes down the stairway in a sparkly royal blue dress all dolled up,look at the reverend's look on his face. From that point on his feelings changed for her and over the season those feelings grew. Also if he wasn't attracted to her then why was he always the one initiating all those kissing scenes? What about when another guy would come into play, like in those episodes "Thelma's Handyman", "MatchMaker MatchMaker" and "Sergeant in Arms" ? Reuben was always getting jealous when another man was interested in Thelma. When the day finally came and he married her.....He looked like a groom very much in love and eager to be with his new bride!

Maybe he settled because he wasn't getting any younger?

No, I don't think so. I think it's just hard for some fans to get past what a person looks like on the outside rather than what is going on inside. If you REALLY watch the show, you can clearly see the passion between both characters, especially season 4.

She was a good person, that's why he married her. He probably had no luck finding someone nice and wanted to marry someone nice but wasn't ready to settle down or date anyone during the time he met Thelma.

If you guys didn't like Reuben and Thelma together, then why are you in this thread? Amen was mostly about their relationship, much like Diane/Sam on Cheers. That was really the draw of the show. Maybe you watched it for Hemsley, but he really wasn't the driving force of the show. Anyway, I think it's rude to put Anna Maria Horsford's looks down. Why not just skip the thread?

Exactly! "Thelma's Reunion" started the mutual attraction between those two. I thought they were AMAZING and had amazing chemistry. Some people just didn't have an understanding of how these two connected. A shame. Because I believe their relationship was what made this show so popular. I personally watched it for them...I couldn't wait each week to watch their relationship grow.

Please! Reuben could have gotten anybody he wanted. Remember when his ex fiancÚ came back, BEGGING for sex (all the women threw themselves at him...not just Thelma)? He absolutely wouldn't have sex with her, or give her any chance. He said he loved his new fiancÚ Thelma. He loved her!!!!
