Laura San Giacomo,
Al Bundy is an unsuccessful middle aged shoe salesman with a miserable life and an equally dysfunctional family. He has a very attractive but lazy wife named Peggy who constantly nags him to death while throwing the little money he earns away on herself. He also has a very promiscuous teen aged daughter named Kelly who makes up in attractiveness what she lacks in IQ points, and a not so attractive but bright teen aged son named Bud who seems to think he is a ladies man. To add to Al's misery is his yuppie next door neighbors Marcy and Steve. Marcy and Steve eventually split up with Marcy keeping the house next door to the Bundys and Steve moving away to be a forest ranger. Later Marcy gets remarried to a gigolo named Jefferson who is the male version of Peggy. The sitcom revolves around Al's never ending attempts to better his life which always leads him right back to where he started. Written by
In a 2013 interview, Ed O'Neill revealed that Amanda Bearse was the only regular cast member with whom he didn't get along, and no longer kept in touch; saying that, although they generally liked and respected one another during the show's production, they grew apart after the third season. O'Neill felt that after that time, she was getting "more masculine" and "snarky", and they would often argue over trivial matters. Even though O'Neill had been supportive of Bearse's decision to come out as a lesbian in 1993, he and David Faustino were the only cast members not to be invited to Bearse's wedding in 2010, reportedly because Bearse was afraid they would laugh at the sight of "two women in tuxedos" (which, O'Neill admitted, he would).

Married With Children is the greatest comedy sitcom of all time, I hear lots of good talk about Friends, Frasier, or all these new shows that are coming on, but Married With Children is by far the best comedy of all time, this is the only show where I like every single character and Al and Marcy insulting each other is the funniest stuff you'll ever hear on tv, if you've never seen this show then you've never truly laughed!
