* 1934 film ''Film/{{Smarty}}'' is a decidely odd take on this in which the divorce and the romantic hijinks happen because--uh, because Vicki likes being smacked around and Tony won't do it. The HappyEnding comes when they get back together and he hits her. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer Really]].

[[AC:Film]]



* ''Theatre/MaryMary''



* Some endings of ''VideoGame/SilentHill2'' ([[spoiler:"In Water" and "Rebirth", also possibly "Leave"]]) are somewhat like a horror version of this trope, considering the couple in question didn't seperate through divorce...
* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' plays this in reverse with Dr. Cox and Jordan: first they were married, then got divorced, then started living together again after having a child together, but didn't get remarried. Then they find out that due to a clerical error, they're still married. Due to their extremely screwed-up personalities, this fact causes them no end of torment and so they decide to divorce again to ''save'' their relationship.



* ''Theatre/{{Curtains}}'' has Georgia and Aaron, songwriters and former married couple. They get back together with some suberb acting by some of the other cast members, who ''wanted'' the two back together.



* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' played with this trope in one episode, with Coach Jack Wittenberg remarrying Tish Wittenberg (helped muchly by Arnold's matchmaking prowess).
* ''Literature/JudeTheObscure'' is something of a ''tragedy'' of remarriage. (It also works the other way round: [[spoiler:they both get married to different people, then live together, get divorced from their respective spouses, then separate and get married to their previous spouses again]]).
* ''[=McClintock=]!'' is this in [[TheWestern Western]] form.
