* ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' ended with the titular hero and his romantic interest marrying and sailing off on a magic carpet together---but the sequel movies and TV series which follow press the ResetButton a little bit, making them only ''engaged'' (with Aladdin living in the palace to learn the ropes about being a Prince before the marriage takes place). While this may seem practical, it also allows the show to avoid the squicky-to-ten-year-olds portrayal of physical intimacy between the two romantically linked characters. (It also conveniently gives the hero a chance to [[AManIsNotAVirgin demonstrate his manliness]] by becoming a [[MagneticGirlfriend desire magnet]] for every [[TheVamp hot villainess]] and DamselInDistress who comes to town.)

Often times the audience will only follow a series just to see if a specific couple will hookup. Actually hooking up the couple in the middle of the series runs the risk of TrueLoveIsBoring and ShippingBedDeath. In many series, resolving the romantic situations of the main characters is a SeriesGoal, hence any attempt to break through and resolve the relationships before the GrandFinale results in FailureIsTheOnlyOption. StatusQuoIsGod results in the characters being placed under a RelationshipCeiling for the duration of the series.

It finally happened. After all the {{Fanwank}} and {{Shipping}}, after all the [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend denial]], after all the WillTheyOrWontThey, after all the fighting (by either [[BelligerentSexualTension the couple]] or [[ShipToShipCombat the fans]]), and after all the heartless [[ShipTease teasing]], devoted fans and viewers alike are at last rewarded with the two characters (usually the main character and his/her close friend of opposite gender) [[FanPreferredCouple everyone knows and/or demands should inevitably get together]], finally doing just that. Too bad it can't be enjoyed, what with the show being over and all. Well, at least it will be, give it another two seconds.

* ''Film/TheMartian: Beck and Johanssen's relationship is reduced to a literal Last Minute Kiss when she gives him a quick smooch before he goes EVA to help retrieve Mark, instead of (apparently) hooking up beforehand and moving into the same bunk as happened in the book. Given that said romance didn't really add much to the story in the first place and barely ever comes up after it's mentioned, [[TropesAreNotBad this doesn't really hurt much.]]

* ''Webcomic/{{Avalon}}'' had two, [[spoiler:Joe & Helène, and Ceilidh and Phoebe. This second one become a rather large BaseBreaker for many fans, as there was little to no hint of it in the strip before the ScheduleSlip until the text summary that the author ended the comic with. The second one felt rather out of left field (perhaps to the point of Phillips' falling prey to PairTheSpares), while the first one was pretty obvious for quite some time.]]
