Pretty much since Archie comics started, there's been the question of should he be with Betty or Veronica. When ARCHIE #600 came about, we got a look at what would happen if Archie proposed to Veronica and then later if he did the same with Betty. In the series LIFE WITH ARCHIE, we get to see a continuation of both possibilities.

Archie Comics has provided with an exclusive look at this week's issue.

LIFE WITH ARCHIE #27

"Archie Marries Veronica" – Kevin takes the first step onto the campaign trail as he attempts to get his name on the ballot for U.S. Senate, but he quickly discovers that he may have bitten off more than he can chew. Who will step in as his campaign manager? Meanwhile, Archie’s dream gig as president of Mirth Music may not be what it seems and Veronica’s latest hire has a hidden agenda all her own. Plus, Betty can’t understand Reggie’s erratic behavior when he begins picking fights on the set of their reality show. They may be in danger of more than just the cancellation of their show!

"Archie Marries Betty" – In the alternate reality, Reggie does his best to fill his recovering father’s shoes at the Gazette, which is proving more difficult than anticipated. Jughead’s “bad news” alarm continues to go off concerning Jellybean’s boyfriend while he tries to keep his big-brother instincts in check and trust her judgment. An emotional disconnect threatens to pull the title couple apart with career-driven Betty continuing to keep Archie on the backburner. Can they turn it around before it’s too late or are they on the path to Splitsville?
