* Anak's parents from ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod''. Her being wed to a commoner away from the court of King Zahard certainly was a bit of a culture shock for her, so they tended to argue almost everyday. Why did they stick together? Because AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther of course.

* ''FanFic/MykanTributeFallOfStarfleetRiseOfHarmony'': By Luna's count, Celestia and Celesto have reached thirty arguments in one month at the beginning of the story. Fluttershy's marriage to Rhymey isn't coming along very well either, with Rhymey being quite domineering and overly possessive.

''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' was probably the first time this trope was the main focus of an American sitcom, but it's been a mainstay of [[BritishTellyTropes British shows]] since TheFifties. It is also a staple of BorschBelt humour, but that may be less to do with venom than with JewsLoveToArgue.

* A little boy runs into his parent's room crying that there's a monster under his bed. His father gives him these words of wisdom: "Enjoy it while you can, my son. When you grow up, the monster'll be ''in'' your bed!"
* "Daddy, why does the bride wear white on her wedding?" "Because it's the happiest day of her life." "Oh... So why does the groom wear black?"
* Many a joke has been made over the expression "happiest day of her life", as this phrase implies that there ''are no happy days afterwards.''



* There are three rings in marriage: the ''engagement'' ring, the ''wedding'' ring, and the ''suffe''ring

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, [[TheEmperor Emperor]] [[TheGoodKing Uriel Septim VII]] was the Emperor of Tamriel in each game until his death at the start of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]''. While Uriel himself was a ReasonableAuthorityFigure who often acted as a benevolent BigGood, his wife, Caula Voria, was an absolute nightmare. While beautiful and beloved by the people, she was said to have "ensnared" a young Uriel and was a deeply unpleasant and arrogant woman. Fortunately, Uriel's seeking comfort in an adulterous relationship would result in the birth of [[HiddenBackupPrince Martin Septim]], hero of the Oblivion Crisis. Caula died sometime just before or shortly after the start of the [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsArena Imperial Simulacrum]].

* ''{{Series/Kaamelott}}'': Just about every single marriage is horrible, several of them because on is an asshole and one is a dumbass:
** Arthur and Guenièvre: Arthur is the OnlySaneMan SurroundedByIdiots trapped in an ArrangedMarriage. It doesn't help that he never sleeps with his wife [[spoiler:due to an oath he made to the one true love of his life]], and while she's inclined to ThinkLikeARomanceNovel, his mistresses are all self-serving social climbers.
** Lancelot and Guenièvre aren't much better: It turns out both are virgins (and stay that way), and as time goes by Lancelot becomes more obsessed with toppling Arthur so he can give Guenièvre a kingdom worthy of her (even though she says she's happy enough being with him). The final nail is when he ties her down to the bed before leaving on a quest so she won't leave, something Arthur snarks at when he rescues her.
** Karadoc and Mevanwi: Karadoc is an utter dumbass and obsessed with food (his bed always contains cheese and sausages, and he kept a live pig for a week during a siege) and while he understands sex is necessary for children he avoids it if he can. Mevanwi was at first a nice girl concerned with raising her children, but in later seasons became Arthur's mistress and went the GodSaveUsFromTheQueen route.
** Leodagan and Seli ([[ObnoxiousInLaws Guenievre's parents]]) are the ''closest'' the show gets to a happy marriage- and even then, [[UnholyMatrimony that's because both are looking out for number one and are more concerned with hanging on to their position as the king's in-laws]] (not that this stops them from tearing into each other at any occasion, in fact Leodagan is more likely to side with Arthur rather than his wife). It's telling that a young prince Leodagan kidnapped her from a rival tribe for ransom (they paid him twice what he asked for to keep her) and years later, she still hasn't forgiven him... because she never saw a cent of that money.

** Aerys II, aka [[TheCaligula The Mad King]], and his sister-wife Rhaella. Both would have preferred other suitors but were made to marry by their father thanks to a prophecy that TheChosenOne would be born of their line. Never a golden union (its happy days saw Aerys sleeping with most of his wife's attendants), it slipped gradually into a nightmare as Aerys earned his future epithet, capped off by heavy usage of the MaritalRapeLicense.

A species of DomCom based on the premise that monogamous marriage is rather like a long, slow, exquisite torture by a sadistic god from whose malicious clutches escape is impossible. Husbands are [[ParentingTheHusband child-like]] [[BumblingDad buffoons]] who watch too much football, leave the toilet seat up, [[AllMenArePerverts ogle hot women]], and forget anniversaries. Wives are frigid, nagging, [[{{Jerkass}} hateful shrews]] with [[AllWomenArePrudes zero interest in sex]]. [[ChildrenAreAWaste Chil]][[TeensAreMonsters dren]] destroy your home and what little peace of mind you have left, while waiting their turn to perpetuate the cycle. ObnoxiousInLaws serve to add to the misery. The audience may be left wondering, [[JustEatGilligan "Why don't they just get a divorce, if they're so miserable?"]]
