Darlene had a relationship fraught with conflict and affection with her older sister Becky, who initially made much greater academic and social progress than she did. The pair shared a bedroom as teenagers and frequently bickered -- for example, Darlene would call Becky "Barbie Doll", while Becky would often call Darlene "Butch". They could also be mutually supportive, particularly giving each other advice or protecting one another from snooping parents. For example, Becky frequently gave Darlene advice on boys when she first showed an interest; Darlene in turn made every effort to cover for Becky when she and a friend got drunk at age 14, and also gave Becky advice at one point when she became worried about her marriage though she and Darlene had been drinking schnapps and Becky was a bit tipsy.
In adulthood, the two sisters saw one another less frequently, but they each had much greater respect and affection for one another; Becky consoled Darlene when her daughter Harris was born prematurely, and Darlene was the first one to learn Becky and Mark were expecting and congratulate them.
Whereas Becky eloped and made questionable personal decisions, Darlene, defying all earlier expectations, went to college and so began heaping scorn on her sister's academic prowess, often calling her stupid. Regardless of whether or not Becky was in the right in their arguments, Darlene was easily able to best her in their verbal repartees, and they usually ended either in a stalemate or Darlene victorious though in either case, she usually would get bored and leave.
Darlene had a slightly closer relationship with D. Darlene and D. Her relationship with her Aunt Jackie was fairly close also, although she copied her mother in criticizing certain aspects of her life, specifically her inability to commit to men. Jackie often provided a sympathetic ear when Darlene and Roseanne clashed, and sometimes duked it out with her sister to help Darlene.
Despite being the less socially-pleasant one to be around in almost any circumstances, Darlene is generally closer to her family than Becky is--though part of this stems from the fact that her parents adore David her boyfriend and later husband , while Roseanne has voiced her dislike of David's brother and Becky's husband Mark many times. Darlene dated several boys in high school before she met David Healy whose name she changed from Kevin because she preferred it halfway through Season 4.
They began as friends who wrote and produced an underground comic book; however, David found himself increasingly attracted to Darlene, who didn't return the feelings at first. She eventually became mutually attracted to David, but was unsure if it would blot out their friendship, and so hesitated to return his affections until she had taken advice from her father and sister.
When David confirmed that he was okay with just being friends if she wasn't ready, Darlene kissed him; they subsequently started dating. Darlene controlled the relationship from the start, taking after her mother in subtly and frequently criticizing him, while David, who came from an abusive household, was frequently passive. However, he would sometimes stand up for himself and tell Darlene what he really thought; and after Darlene witnessed his suffering at the hands of his drunken mother, she became more protective of him. The two of them attended the prom together and lost their virginity near the end of Season 5.
David was the younger brother of Mark Healy, whom Roseanne deeply disliked; however, David was a much more pleasant, intelligent personality and Darlene's parents quickly warmed up to him, even letting him live with them during Season 5 after witnessing the abuse he was suffering from his mother, Barbara.
Darlene and David had a tumultuous relationship, breaking up on three separate occasions and taking longer to reconcile each time. However, they always reunited.
While Darlene was initially willing to stay for him, finish high school and apply again later, Roseanne recognized that she should go and Darlene finally had the courage to tell David as much-to which he reacted with uncharacteristic selfishness. They split at the start of Season 6 as Darlene headed off for college. Although they were initially hostile the first time Darlene visited home, Roseanne manipulated them into reconciling; later, David pretended to return to his abusive mother who had moved to Michigan so that he could secretly move into Darlene's college apartment.
However, as they were forced to conceal their relationship from most people, the strain soon deteriorated their relationship, and they began fighting with each other constantly. By the time Roseanne caught them and marched them back to Lanford to be punished, they were glad to separate again.
When Dan learned that David and Darlene had been sleeping together for almost three months, he was so furious he punched a hole in the wall, and gave David 20 minutes to pack. Under the guise of moving in with his mother in Michigan, Roseanne brought him to Aunt Jackie's home until the situation cooled. David would sneak to the Conner house when Darlene was in town, as the two soon missed one another, and got back together again having realized that they moved in together too soon.
Upon catching them in Darlene's room, Dan became enraged, and responded with physical violence against David. Darlene told David to "Go back to Jackie's", further angering Dan, who was unaware of the arrangement. After talking with both Roseanne and Darlene, he relented and allowed David to move back into the Conner house. David and Darlene were together again, although following the restrictions Roseanne and Dan set upon them-which included no sex for at least 6 months, and "No more secrets" as Dan put it. The third split occured entirely because of Darlene's behavior at the start of season 7.
Believing she and David needed experience with other people or they would end up 'like her parents', she began spending time with a boy from her college named Jimmy, although not officially breaking up with David. David remained fully aware of her relationship with Jimmy, but never protested because he did not want to lose her. However, Roseanne encouraged him to stand up to Darlene for her callous behavior; he then gave Darlene an ultimatum, telling her to chose the one she planned to sleep with. When Darlene chose Jimmy, David called her a coldhearted bitch and stormed out in tears. They remained hostile for a long time, both of them stooping low to seek revenge on the other; however, their relationship eventually mellowed back to tentative friendship, especially after Darlene cut all her ties with Jimmy after discovering his drug habits.
Near the end of Season 7 Darlene, after talking with her mother, realized that she still had strong feelings for him and had reacted awkwardly when the Conners discovered David was attempting to start a relationship with another girl, claiming that he was over Darlene. In an unexpected display of humble emotion, Darlene confessed that she loved him and wanted him back if that was still a possibility, but that she did not expect him to take her back given how she had treated him; she simply wanted to know his feelings without being hurt.
David paused, then replied that he would never hurt her and embraced her, reaffirming their romance.
Roseanne had long since forgiven them, while Dan was sufficiently mollified by their third split to call of the restrictions he had placed on them. Subsequently, Darlene would resume dominating and criticizing David as before, but in a gentler, teasing manner; she never showed any further inclination to end their relationship. David, in turn, had no further real complaints and took her verbal jabs with no real reaction.
Darlene does not often openly admit she loves David, but when she does she says so from her heart. In Season 8, Darlene helped David look for jobs on several occasions, as they were hoping to move in together in Chicago during her final year of college; she ultimately found him work as a graphic artist, fulfilling part of his career dream. However, when Darlene discovered that David had gotten her pregnant after a family vacation at Disney World, she proposed to him.
Though stunned, he accepted, which temporarily caused a rift between the two of them and Dan who felt Darlene was squandering her potential as he, Roseanne and Becky had. Despite the massive responsibilities she had chosen to face and her normally un-motherly personality Roseanne remarking that Darlene had once wanted a vasectomy at age 8 , Darlene remained unfazed; she planned accordingly on how to finish her education and start her career before she even informed David and her family about the baby.
When Roseanne talked with her alone after they broke the news, Darlene again gave an unexpected display of emotion when she stated how much she wanted to keep the baby and that she wanted to marry David not just for the logical financial reasons, but because she loved him and needed his emotional support to go through with it. Roseanne was impressed, but advised her to repeat her feelings to David, as he had not found her proposal entirely convincing. Near the end of Series 8, Darlene and David were married at an outdoor ceremony; David's only regret was that his parents did not come, although Mark his best man assured him that the Conners were their true family.
Dan, who had not been talking with Darlene for almost a month and a half, reconciled with her just before he walked her to the altar. The new couple were forced to hold an impromptu 'reception' at the hospital after Dan suffered his heart attack; Dan then apologized to David for the time when he threw him against a wall.
They continued to visit the Conner house frequently during season 9, although they had then moved into their Chicago apartment; indeed, considering Becky and Mark lived only a block away, Darlene and David were seen visiting at least as often as they were. Though Darlene's parents remained supportive during Season 9, Roseanne frequently teased Darlene about her pregnancy symptoms and David about his excess empathy. Darlene went into unexpected early labor in her seventh month and gave birth to her dangerously-premature daughter.
She was in shock after the birth and blamed herself for her child's fate, but David managed to calm her down and comfort her. Several specialists were convinced that their baby would not be able to survive outside the incubator; after a moment of thought, Darlene and David tearfully chose to remove her from the machinery and give her a chance to survive on her own. Against the odds, she did survive and Darlene named her Harris Conner Healy in honor of the many strong women on her mother's side of the family.
She and David were last seen deciding to spend some time with Harris at the Conner house before they returned to their home in Chicago, since her mother wanted her there and could give them parenting tips. Darlene struggles in school, trying to keep her grades up so she can keep with her after school sporting activities. She and her brother would fool around like all young children did whereas Becky looked on, never quite being part of the group and preferring the company of adults.
Darlene also gets her first period this year and feels as if she has to give up her old life and start wearing make-up and dating boys but some timely words from Roseanne convince her that she can still play sports but becoming a woman would actually be more of a benefit than a hindrance.
She also gets a paper route to earn some extra money but is fired because of her poor time-keeping.

As the family struggles with money problems, Darlene and her mother begin to fight for the role of "alpha female". Maturity is the theme for Darlene this season as she begins to date boys, groping a guy on the couch just to get one up on Becky who is on her second serious boyfriend by this point.
