* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' has a rather... complicated example. Nanoha's older sister Miyuki became friends with Amy in the ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs A's]]'' [[AllThereInTheManual Sound Stages]]. Amy married Chrono during the TimeSkip between ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs A's]]'' and ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers StrikerS]]''. Nanoha and Chrono's sister Fate are [[WordOfGay a couple]]. Ergo...

** Nanoha and Suzuka are another example since Nanoha's older brother Kyoya and Suzuka's older sister Shinobu have been together for at least ten years by the time of ''[=StrikerS=]'' (though it's unknown if they ever got married).

In fiction (not to mention RealLife), it's not uncommon for [[BestFriend friends]] to be [[TrueCompanions as close as family]]. (After all, WeChooseOurFriendsGodGivesUsOurRelations.) For the most part such relationships go unformalised. You might wish you could make a friend an official relative, but your options are limited. Adoption is difficult, especially when both people involved are adults. And marrying your friend probably isn't an option if you [[HeterosexualLifePartners just don't]] [[PlatonicLifePartners feel that way]] [[LikeBrotherAndSister about each other]].

* In the finale of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', JD pictures his and Kim's sons, Sam, and Turk and Carla's daughter, Izzy, all grown up and revealing to him and Turk that they're engaged to get married. Cue [[{{Squee}} squeeing]] JD and Turk. Notable in that, [[ImagineSpot unlike JD's other fantasies]], this is part of a montage that JD and the finale strongly imply ''will'' eventually happen.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' has a potential case of at least ''friends'' in law: the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] can befriend Annekke Crag-Jumper by doing a quest for her (as indicated by it becoming possible to recruit Annekke as a follower). The Dragonborn can then make her this trope by marrying Sylgja, Annekke's daughter. The Dragonborn can also befriend Vilkas and Farkas, two members of the Companions guild who are fraternal twins and potential followers; both are candidates for marriage, and if the Dragonborn marries one, this can be implied with the other.
