* ''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.

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...

In fiction (not to mention RealLife), it's not uncommon for [[BestFriend friends]] to be [[TrueCompanions as close as family]]. 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]].
