* UnhappilyEverAfter: The show's original premise was that it was about Jack and Jenny getting a divorce, and this is how it was in Season One. But they got married again in Season Two, making many of the show's elements into TheArtifact, including the [[ArtifactTitle title]]. In Season Five, Jenny left the show entirely, so that this time around, Jack was also a divorcer, but one who was no longer in the position of having to see his ex-wife on a regular basis.

* ''Series/TheOrville'' looks set to play this trope like a pinball. Mercer and Grayson were married, but his workaholic tendencies led to her cheating, and a ''very'' messy divorce and Mercer almost deep-sixing his career. Queue a year later when Mercer is given a captaincy due to a severe staff shortage, and the only available XO is Grayson! In the end of the pilot, they agree that working together is what's best for the ship, despite their still messy personal situation.

* ''Theatre/TheOddCouple'': One of the premises of the Neil Simon comedy was that both male leads -- Felix Unger and Oscar Madison -- were divorced. While Oscar continued to have a stormy relationship with his ex, for Felix (at least in the TV adaptation), his divorce from ex-wife Gloria ''was'' temporary… and the two were re-married in the series' finale, aptly titled "Felix Remarries."
