After 24 seasons of Law & Order: SVU, it's clear that Olivia Benson, played by Mariska Hargitay, deserves a happily ever after. Throughout the series, Olivia has built a life she is proud of as captain of the Special Victims Unit, a single mother to her son Noah, and a dedicated advocate for survivors. While the show has portrayed Olivia as a strong woman who doesn't need a man to be happy, viewers believe that she deserves a partner.

Olivia's romantic journey on the show has been complicated. The initial romantic tension between Olivia and her former partner Elliot Stabler was evident from the start, but they never officially got together.

Instead, Olivia had brief flings and failed relationships, which often highlighted the challenges of her work at SVU. After Elliot left the show, Olivia had to figure out who she was without him. She grew professionally and became a leader in the squad room. She also became a mother to Noah, which proved to be both challenging and rewarding.

Throughout the series, Olivia has struggled to build strong relationships with men, partly due to her past trauma and her abusive alcoholic mother. However, she had important relationships with men like Detective Brian Cassidy, who supported her through difficult times, and Captain Ed Tucker, who offered stability and care.

Tucker's death deeply affected Olivia, showing how much she cared for him.

While many fans have longed for Olivia and Elliot to get together, others suggest different romantic pairings for Olivia. Some prefer to see her with Rafael Barba, the former ADA, while others think she could end up with Trevor Langan, played by Mariska Hargitay's real-life husband. Ultimately, the most important thing is for Olivia to find a relationship that gives her the love and support she deserves.

In conclusion, after 24 seasons of Law & Order: SVU, it's time for Olivia Benson to have a happy ending. She has built a fulfilling life and deserves a partner who loves and supports her. Whether it's with Elliot, Rafael, Trevor, or someone else entirely, viewers hope to see Olivia find the love she desires while continuing to be the strong and capable woman she has always been.
