** ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain,'' possibly the first major example. Interesting because [[DestructoNookie when Wonder Woman and Superman made love it caused earthquakes, hurricanes, twisters, tsunamis, and other fun stuff]].
** At the end of ComicBook/KingdomCome, not only have Supes and Diana hooked up (Lois Lane's death is a major backstory point), but she's pregnant with a [[GooGooGodlike baby reality warper]]. (Or, at least, a baby. The RealityWarper thing is mostly in the sequel.)

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'': Vivec/Almalexia. It didn't last long...on the godly scale of time, that is.
** Sotha Sil/Almalexia coupled for longer, probably because it was more intermittent due to Sotha's reclusive MadScientist nature. Almalexia did a lot of coupling, but considered Nerevar to be her lover long after his death. And Nerevar/Almalexia were a political God Couple while they were still mortal.

* Myth/RomanMythology as usual largely oriented itself after the Greek myths, thus Zeus' equivalent Jupiter is married to Juno, Pluto to Proserpina, and Neptune to Salacia. Mars, the Roman god of war and agriculture, however, was somewhat different from his Greek counterpart Ares, and was usually paired with the war-goddess Bellona, who [[DependingOnTheAuthor is variously described]] as his wife, sister or daughter.

* ''Series/TheAlmightyJohnsons'', a show about Norse gods secretly living in New Zealand, features several examples. Relationships between gods and goddesses tend to be volatile, though, so many of the pairings are brief.
** The main premise of the story is that Axl (Odin) is searching for his Frigg, so that they can become one. And, not incidentally, restore the gods to their former power.
** Anders (Bragi) is a notorious womanizer until he meets Helen, who is Idun, his destined wife. But things aren't destined to end well for her.
** Ty (who is Hod, god of cold and dark) marries Eva (Hel, goddess of the underworld). It doesn't end well either.
** Colin (Loki) hooks up with Michele (Sjöfn, a minor goddess with a major chip on her shoulder about it) for a while, till she gets sick of his antics and says goodbye with a [[GroinAttack knee to the groin]].
** Mike (Ullr), whose mortal wife has left him, and Michele, who has just dumped Colin, end up forming one of the more stable god couples in the show. Possibly because there's no destiny involved--they just like each other.
** Olaf (Baldr, god of rebirth) and Ingrid (Snotra, goddess of wisdom) seem to be heading towards a loose, stoner version of a relationship, but it doesn't work out, and Olaf ends up in an equally loose relationship with Stacey (Fulla, handmaiden of Frigg).
