* At the end of ''Theatre/MeasureForMeasure'', the Duke announced that he was going to marry Isabella. Not only did they never show any interest in each other before that point, but Isabella's dearest wish was to become a nun. Also, for most of the play she thought he was a Friar and thus sworn to celibacy.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/ShouwaGenrokuRakugoShinjuu'', Yotaro is simplemindedly head-over-heels for Konatsu, who is cold to him, but not in a {{Tsundere}} kind of way; she never once says or does anything romantic towards him, or have any romantic thoughts about him even after ''[[spoiler:they get married]]''. This creates the very strange situation of Yotaro having [[spoiler:a "wife" who treats him as a close friend at best and a "son" who isn't even his actual child]].

* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'': Rodney [=McKay=], ''repeatedly'', in the last two seasons. The first major girlfriend, Katie Brown, was a drippy botanist that he had nothing in common with whatsoever, and the second was Jennifer Keller, who had previously [[FanPreferredCouple seemed to have a nice thing going on with Ronon]]. This [[ExecutiveMeddling may]] have had something to do with the fact that the most popular ship in the entire fandom was [[HoYay McKay/Sheppard]]. In the episode ''The Shrine'', after all of one episode of any serious interaction, he's [[DyingDeclarationOfLove declaring]] his love for Keller in a video recording.

* While most couples in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations'' are clearly shown to care for each other, Mia and Diego is an exception. Diego being Mia's boyfriend is literally the first thing we learn about him and it provides Mia with motivation to hunt Dahlia and [[spoiler: for Diego(as Godot) to hate Phoenix for being unable to save her two games earlier]], but when we see them actually interacting with each other they don't seem any closer than co-workers, aside from Diego using AffectionateNickname.

* ''Film/TheBreakfastClub'': The end of the movie hookups [[spoiler: between Andy and Allison and Bender and Claire]]. While the characters have clear moments of bonding and all of them growing closer to each other is the whole point of the movie, it's made a [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief little tough to believe]] due to how much of the film they all spend abusing each other. And no, abuse in this case does ''not'' mean BelligerentSexualTension; it means abuse.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Dinosaucers}}'' had Teryx admit her feelings to Ichy. However, she'd never shown any interest in him previously, Ichy didn't seem at all interested in her, when she was kidnapped by Genghis Rex to force her to marry him, Ichy was not the one who rescued her, and the relationship was barely even touched upon afterwards. Although, a lot of that may be blamed on StatusQuoIsGod.

* Ginny Weasley in ''Film/HarryPotter''. Harry and Ginny barely interact, sharing the screen for about seven minutes combined in the last ''three'' movies. Whenever they are on screen together, they barely talk, instead just sharing a kiss and an awkward look before Harry rushes off to do something and Ginny sits down to be irrelevant to the plot.

This is probably a result of AdaptationDecay, since they did have significantly more build-up in the books.

* The ''VideoGame/RuneFactory'' series, despite every game having multiple potential marriage candidates, seems to invoke this as something (usually the intro video) shows the protagonist with the first female character you could meet in the game more often than any other. Rune Factory 4 is the only real exception.
