** Much like their book counterparts, Robert and Cersei. The major difference is that here Cersei actually ''did'' love Robert for quite a while in the beginning (though he still only ever loved Lyanna in this version), and tried to make the relationship work at first despite knowing he didn't love her back. Still, in both versions, by the start of the story, they've hated each other for years.

** Sansa's brief marriage to Ramsay is definitely this. Unlike her previous (also-unwanted) husband, Tyrion, Ramsay made full use of his MaritalRapeLicense; Sansa essentially stayed locked up in her room for the entire day, only for Ramsay to come and rape her every night. Luckily for her, she escaped, although she's technically still married to him.

** Robert Baratheon and Cersei Lannister, who never wanted to be married in the first place (their union being the result of an ArrangedMarriage). Robert's real love, Lyanna, was killed in the civil war of Westeros and [[TheLostLenore he never got over her]], and Cersei hated him even before their marriage because he killed her lifelong crush, Rhaegar, in said war.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Stannis and Selyse Baratheon. She's loyal to her husband's cause but their marriage is as cold as ice and they rarely sleep together. [[TheStoic Their]] [[TheFundamentalist personalities]] don't help either.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Much like their book counterparts, Stannis and Selyse Baratheon have an unhappy marriage. The main variation from the books is that show Selyse is mentally unstable and Stannis at least shows some pity to her.

Similar to NoAccountingForTaste, but you'll rarely (if ''ever'') see the AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther moments occasionally found in that trope. Compare TheMasochismTango, BelligerentSexualTension, and LikeAnOldMarriedCouple. Contrast HappilyMarried for the opposite and HappyMarriageCharade for when this trope pretends to be HappilyMarried.

* ''Series/LifeOfRiley'': Ted is a stereotypical nerd, complete with well-groomed features and spectacles. He is a frequent bully magnet and is certainly in touch with his feminine side. Any mother would love to have a little boy like him, especially one who keeps saying the weirdest things.

* ''Series/LifeOfRiley'': Ted The Weavers are constantly one badly placed word away from killing each other. Roger is a stereotypical nerd, complete with well-groomed features incensed at every attempt his wife makes to freshen things up and spectacles. He is a frequent bully magnet and is certainly in touch with his feminine side. Any mother would love to have a little boy like him, especially one who Alison even keeps saying a baseball bat hidden away in case anything turns nasty. Ironically, this is the weirdest things.one advantage the Rileys have over the Weavers in terms of family life.
