She is divorced; her husband ran off with their marriage counselor. She has talked about her ex living somewhere else exotic but in Bart the Lover a man at the local gas station, while diagnosing a fault with her car, tastes sugar in the gasoline and states "Your ex-husband strikes again!" As a result, she severely misses male company, and it is occasionally implied that she feels her biological clock ticking. In early episodes, she is shown as very sexually aggressive: in Flaming Moe's, she tried to pick up both Joey Kramer (Aerosmith's drummer) and Homer Simpson, even after learning he was married. In One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish she has a hot encounter with a Japanese sushi chef on the backseat of her car. Bart took cruel advantage of her loneliness in Bart the Lover by making her believe that her dream man ("played" by Gordie Howe) has responded to her "lonely hearts" ad. However, Bart regretted doing this, confessed to his family and together, they successfully created a romantically diplomatic farewell letter from the false pen pal to allow Edna to feel loved.

In the episode Grade School Confidential, she develops a secret romance with the school's principal, Seymour Skinner, a relationship that almost made it to the altar.

In Season 17 (The Seemingly Never-Ending Story), it's shown in a flashback that Krabappel was in a serious relationship with Moe Szyslak when she first moved to Springfield, before meeting Skinner or even becoming a teacher. She was about to run away with him (and possibly get married) but then changed her mind when she met Bart Simpson, a student she believed needed help (it was revealed, however, that Bart was just stalling while Nelson Muntz stole microscopes from the school). During this flashback, it's revealed also that she was once a very hopeful, optimistic and attractive woman (i.e. slimmer figure, characteristic bags under her eyes are missing) who genuinely wanted to help people in need. It would seem that after years of frustration thanks to the school, and Bart in particular, this wore away on a somewhat tragic note - but due to the show's premise of being "stuck" in time, she is only Bart's teacher for less than one year - keeping up the show's time-honored tradition of contradicting its own timeline. However, to be fair, most of The Seemingly Never-Ending Story is finally revealed as being told by Bart himself, so he may have altered or outright invented his role in Krabappel's flashback, which therefore could, theoretically, date back to a much earlier time in Bart's life or even before he was born at all. In any event, at the end of the episode, it appears that Moe and Edna are a couple once again, much to Skinner's jealousy when he caught them making out on school property. Indeed, Krabappel appears to be the object of many a man's desire, as evident by Sideshow Bob's outrage in one episode wherein his romantic date with her is ruined by a spying Bart: "You only get one chance with Edna Krabappel!" The Seemingly Never-Ending Story is the thirteenth episode of the seventeenth season of The Simpsons, and the ninth Emmy Award-winning episode. ...

There is some inconsistency about Edna's origins. Though she is said to have come to Springfield to begin teaching in "The Seemingly Never-Ending Story" she can be seen running through the background in Springfield High School in "Springfield Up" when Clancy Wiggum is being videotaped as a hall monitor. Springfield Up is the thirteenth episode of the eighteenth season of The Simpsons, which originally aired on February 18, 2007. ...

Matt Groening admitted in a commentary on the DVD of the first season that it was meant to be a joke that no one called her "crabapple," and indeed no one did — until the real Seymour Skinner, and then Milhouse, did so.
