* [[TheStoic Aveline]] and [[SatelliteLoveInterest Donnic]] in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII''. Notable for requiring an extremely [[CrowningMomentOfFunny silly]] sidequest to bring about, and for the even sillier lines the whole thing draws from the rest of your team.

It has the potential to be subverted too; completing Act II without doing this quest quest means that Aveline is still single in Act III, and incredibly bitter about WhatCouldHaveBeen.

** Similar to the Mass Effect example above, [[TroubledButCute Fenris]] and [[LoveableRogue Isabela]] can develop a rather stable and happy FriendsWithBenefits relationship if Hawke doesn't romance either of them.

* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' has Marshall and Lily, getting engaged in the pilot episode and having been together for some 8 years prior. Besides a temporary break-up in the early second season they act as a unit and are seen by Ted as the perfect couple that he wants to model himself after. This forms a contrast to Ted's several complicated relationships, such as his ever present on-again-off-again thing with Robin.
* For the first two seasons of ''Series/TheOC'', Seth and Summer were the Beta Couple to the OfficialCouple of Ryan and Marissa. In the third season, Ryan and Marissa break up for good and there is no real OfficialCouple. In the fourth and final season both Seth/Summer and Ryan/Taylor are given about equal weight.

Added DiffLines:

* The stage adaptation of ''Theatre/{{Anastasia}}'' gives us Vlad and Lily, in a parallel to Dmitry and Anya. Both couples consist of a con man and an aristocratic woman, although Vlad and Lily seem to have a ''much'' easier time of rekindling their romance than Dmitry and Anya have of admitting theirs.
