* Averted on ''Series/TheWire''. Throughout seasons 1 and 2 Jimmy [=McNulty=] tries to reconcile with his wife while they're going through the divorce process and get them back together, and in one episode [[SexWithTheEx they do have a passionate one night stand]]. He makes the mistake of thinking they're back together but she insists that it was just a one time thing and they can never get back together because all the things that drove them apart, (especially [=McNulty's=] binge drinking, womanizing, and being MarriedToTheJob) haven't changed, and neither has the way he destroyed her trust by doing those things. They remain apart for the remainder of the series.

Of course, the plotline doesn't let them stay separate for long. Anything from their meddling kids to an ApocalypseHow will force them together again - by coincidence, happenstance, or old feelings simply being rekindled. Whatever it is, however messy the split-up was, it's all undone by the end of the story.

* Averted in [[Literature/DearMrHenshaw Dear Mr. Henshaw]]. Even though Leigh desperately wants his parents to get back together, and there are still feelings on both sides of the spectrum, his mom refuses, because she knows it will only end the same way - that is, badly.

* ''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."
