* [[FinalFantasyVII Cloud and Tifa]] have this kind of relationship late in the main game, and in works that come after (such as ''[[FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren Advent Children]]'')... On screen, anyways. There ''might'' be something going on behind the scenes, but generally left to interpenetration.

Added DiffLines:

* WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse and Minnie Mouse, at least initially. Creator/WaltDisney himself said that Mickey and Minnie were happily married outside of their acting career, but did not have a sex life. More modern works tend to disregard this, even going so far as to [[SexyDiscretionShot imply]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar sexual congress]] between the two in the ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse2013'' short "[[Recap/MickeyMouseS1E17ThirdWheel Third Wheel]]"

* Edward the Confessor was the last Saxon King of England because he had one of these with his Queen Edith. He may have had religious motives or maybe it was because he despised Edith's father Godwin of Wessex. Whatever his reasons Edith seems to have been okay with it and tthey are credited with having an affectionate father/daughter like relationship.

* Dominic and Sarah from ''Webcomic/{{Unreality}}'' are clearly shown to be very passionately in love, they both seem to want to advance forward in their relationship, and there's nothing stopping them...except for the fact that they're respectively 13 and 16, on top of the fact that they're [[NotAllowedToGrowUp]], so they obviously aren't going to be hitting the bedsheets anytime soon.

The Chastity Couple is a pairing where it is clear the characters are romantically involved but, due to any number of reasons, they are never portrayed as sexually intimate. The interaction between the duo can at times be mistaken for an affectionate [[HeterosexualLifePartners platonic]] [[PlatonicLifePartners relationship]] instead of a romantic one. However, their love for each other is confirmed by either WordOfGod, [[LoveConfession their own confession]], or other [[EveryoneCanSeeIt helpful cues]], no need to get all perverted about it. [[RuleThirtyFour But a majority will.]]

Nevertheless, many fans will resort to RuleThirtyFour to make up for the lack of sex in cannon.



Not to be confused with SexlessMarriage, nor SleepingSingle.

Avoid family shows in examples where possible as they are likely to tone down romance in general because of the intended audience.

Contrast FriendsWithBenefits: it has sex but no romance, while this trope is the opposite.

Not to be confused with SexlessMarriage, nor SleepingSingle.

Avoid
SexlessMarriage. In a sexless marriage, we're meant to understand that the couple's lack of sex is a symptom of some kind of relationship problem, while the chastity can apparently have a good relationship even without having sex. Also not to be confused with SleepingSingle. A couple sleeping in seperate beds doesn't necessarily mean that a couple never have sex, and sometimes they actually have children, it's just that we never get to see their intimacy for ourselves.

Please avoid
family shows in examples where possible as they are likely to tone down romance in general because of the intended audience.

Contrast FriendsWithBenefits: it has this trope with its inversion FriendsWithBenefits, in which two people have sex but no not romance, while this trope is the opposite.a chastity couple has romance without sex.

* Due to how [[TheirFirstTime the first time]] [[spoiler:Katniss and Peeta make love]] [[GRatedSex is merely alluded to]] in ''[[Literature/TheHungerGames Mockingjay]]'' there are fans who believe they didn't have sex until deciding to start a family--fifteen years into their relationship. Has been {{Jossed}} already and expected to be so again when the movie comes out but there are fanfictions out there that depict TheirFirstTime as happening after a decade and a half.
** In ''[[Literature/TheHungerGames Catching Fire]]'' they are a straight example of the trope, as their love affair and subsequent engagement is very public but initially only for show. While Peeta spends many nights in Katniss' bed there's no mention of the two of them so much as kissing during those nights. During the course of the book Katniss begins to fall in love with Peeta and they engage in a [[BigDamnKiss passionate make out session]] [[BeachKiss on the beach]], but that's as fas as it goes before they are separated.

* Sazed and Tindwyl from BrandonSanderson's ''{{Mistborn}}-trilogy'' deeply care for one another but never engage in sexual activity. This makes sense, seeing as Sazed has been a eunuch since birth while Tindwyl is an old woman whose entire fertile life was spent bearing as many children as possible.
