By the end of the series, he has three siblings: Eric; Morgan; and Joshua. Cory Matthews has a happy life with Topanga. He goes to him for advice on his problems. Cory always works his problems out. Cory struggled in high school, where he often had trouble with bullies. Cory married Topanga Lawrence, his "first true love," late in the series.
Sometimes, Cory and Topanga do not get along when Cory is not doing "the right thing", or not doing things "the right way" humorouslycomplete with deadpan humor and puns. Topanga, Cory, and their friends eventually left Philadelphia for an internship that Topanga got with a law firm in New York City.
In the last episode, it is revealed that Cory is actually short for 'Cornelius'. Cory's personality changes somewhat as he gets older.
For the first few years, he's a slacker and just barely a better student than Shawn. One major difference between Cory and Shawn is that Cory seems to get more worked up or neurotic about random things, whereas Shawn is more laid back. If Cory does not want to do something school-related, he will make a big production about the fact that he does not want to do it, and how unnecessary he finds it; whereas Shawn will just not do it, preferring to fall asleep or make paper airplanes.
As the series progresses, Cory's "slacker" tendencies diminish, and his neuroses increase, along with his pessimism and paranoia. After Cory and Topanga begin to go out, a lot more women seem to be attracted to Cory than before, which Shawn explains as girls being attracted to men who are off the market. In the past, Cory has kissed other women while with Topanga, one which led to them being broken up for a while, and a college girl almost had sex with him once.
By the time of the events of Girl Meets WorldCory has had two children with Topanga, a son named Auggie plus a daughter named Riley. Cory is, at this point in his life, a seventh-grade history teacher. He began the show as a suave, popular young man, who constantly went out on dates.
He was originally portrayed as the stereotypical elder brother. Eric's character changed mid-series from preppy elder brother to "crazy, moronic brother". During the fourth season, Eric takes a year off from school when he doesn't get into a college of his choice.
Eric often plays off his hero and mentor, Mr. Though Eric and Feeny are not originally seen as having a close relationship, the two develop a bond, that—at least in Eric's mind—is one of love. This culminates at the end of the fifth season when Eric sings a rousing of "To Sir, With Love" at Cory's high school graduation.
Eric also coins the "Feeny call", and even makes a talking doll for Feeny to "make the call", so Feeny will not miss him when he moves to New York with the others. Eric is actually highly intelligent, and Feeny mentions that Eric can get passing grades in his sleep in fact, he once did. He compares this to Cory who, though lacking Eric's natural intelligence, makes up for it by being hard-working when he wants to be, and thus succeeds. Eric, on the other hand, is too lazy and immature to be anything but a ridiculous "goof-off", to the annoyance of his family and Mr.
During the later years, storylines involving Eric became stranger and wackier, often bending the rules of reality itself, such as an episode where Eric continually tries to sneak up on Topanga by using many disguises and crazy situations.
The change from a girl-crazy cool-conscious teenager the first half of the series to a scatter-brained odd-ball the second half of the series was a drastic change.
Eric often provides comic relief in tough situations throughout the series. On the contrary, Eric has appeared sensitive when it comes to matters of family and friends, as in the episode "Brotherly Shove", where Eric feels rejected by Cory when he was not asked to help clean out the garage, which was filled with memories from their childhood. Also, in the episodes "The War" and "Seven the Hard Way", the audience realizes that Eric finds friendship a serious matter and values it more than anything, apparent in his quote, "Lose one friend, lose all friends.
He had been in five different schools before he was Shawn has always been the best friend of Cory Matthews. The two met when Cory fell into an animal pen at a zoo and Shawn came to his rescue. Shawn has a personality almost opposite of Cory's. Shawn takes more risks and has more of a bad boy image. Their personality differences do cause problems between the two a few times, but these problems can never destroy the friendship between Cory and Shawn.
Later seasons depict the relationship between Cory and Shawn as being so intimate that Topanga is jealous of it. Several innuendos are made as to the subconscious homoerotic nature of their friendship Template: In season two and thereafter, the show began to focus on Shawn's life as well.
In the beginning, Shawn lives with both his parents, Chet and Verna Hunter. One day, Verna runs off with the trailer and Shawn is left under the care of the Matthews family when Chet chases after his wife. About a year later, Chet comes back and eventually Verna rejoins her family temporarily before taking off again. Shawn goes through many issues, including joining a cult briefly.
In a later season, Shawn's half-brother Jack arrives in town for college. Shawn moves in with him and Eric Matthews, Cory's older brother, which leaves Chet free to take off again. However, on a trip back to town, Chet dies of a heart attack. Towards the final episodes of the series, Shawn discovers that Verna was not his biological mother when she sends him a letter after Chet's death.
Apparently, Chet was left to take care of Shawn after his biological mother, who was actually a stripperleft shortly after his birth. Shawn is a ladies' man, something of which Cory sometimes is envious. Conversely, however, Shawn is jealous of Cory's close, long-term relationship with Topanga.
Later in the series, Shawn falls in love with a girl named Angela. They have a tempestuous relationship, but genuinely care for each other. Things get rocky when his best friend Cory breaks up with Topanga. In discussions about Girl Meets World, creator Michael Jacobs has been noncommital as to the return of the Shawn Hunter character but has stated if he returns, he will not have had the same positive outcome as Cory and Topanga have.
Her character underwent dramatic changes during the course of the series. When she was initially introduced in the first season, first as a guest character and later recurring, she was a hippie vegetarian and somewhat of an outcast, sitting at the table with the other "weird kids. However, once the characters entered high school and Danielle Fishel became a main charactershe became more of a "regular teenage girl," and her beliefs about the environment and other topics were less emphasized.
Much was now made of the fact that Topanga was attractive, popular, and academically successful.

However, this only continues up to "A Long Walk to Pittsburgh," when the show starts to depict them as predestined lovers.
The series tries to justify this by saying that Cory and Topanga first met as toddlers and became best friends, only to be driven apart as they grew older and Eric pressured Cory to think of girls as "icky.
Although Topanga was accepted to Yale Universityshe instead decided to attend Pennbrook College with Cory and their friends and proposed to Cory at their high school graduation. They married before their sophomore year during the final seasonafter which the show attempts to put them in stereotypical marriage problem situations.
