* Frank and Estelle Costanza from ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' couldn't speak to one another without shouting and seemed to genuinely hate each other. It's not really explained why they stay together at all, and when they seperate, nobody is the least bit surprised.

Like Bob and Midge above, they could also be seen as a Deconstruction of this trope as Jerry theorized that if they had divorced when George was a kid, he "could have been normal" instead of the neurotic, self loathing, slow-witted, brain-damaged, impulsive and insecure little man he is on the show. George himself seems to agree with Jerry's theory, saying that he's the product of his parents staying together.

* People have been saying this about [[Franchise/TheMuppets Kermit and Miss Piggy]] for decades. Their relationship was always portrayed as strained; she twice attempted to ''trick'' Kermit into marrying her, and once after she intentionally spread a number of false rumors about their relationship Kermit actually had her fired. This may be why they broke up in ''Series/TheMuppets''.However, Kermit is also seen dating a new pig named Denise on that show and admits he HasAType for pigs, which might explain why it took so long for them to go through with it.

Added DiffLines:

** ''ComicStrip/TomTheDancingBug'' also parodies this with "Marital Mirth". Unlike other examples the thin veneer of jocularity is removed, with every strip featuring the husband and wife talking amongst themselves or with their friends about how much they openly hate each other.

* ''Film/ProblemChild'' has Ben Healy Jr. and Flo. The former is a NiceGuy who honestly wants a son while the other is a bitchy shrew who only wants a kid so that she can socialize with other mothers. There's no reason why they got married in the first place considering that she immediately leaps onto a murderous criminal and he's completely indifferent to the fact that she's not coming back. Oddly enough, [[YouLookFamiliar his love interest in the second film is played by the same woman]].

While Church has several PetTheDog moments when it comes to Caboose (he lets out a BigNo when he is supposedly killed, for example), his default position is complete and utter loathing for the Blue Team's rookie.

** On the romance side of things, nobody really gets why Church and Tex like each other. She's mean, punches people in their sleep, and openly enjoys her job of killing people ("I think it's important to like what you do."), while he's an angry, narcissistic jerk. Even understanding where they came from doesn't really explain why they ''still'' care for each other. Church in Season 10 does admit he has a fetish for women with quick tempers, so that might be a factor.
*** Because, as the CerebusRetcon in the Recollection Saga reveals, [[spoiler:both of them are AI's, and the care they have for one another is ''literally rooted into their programming'', regardless of whether they actually like each other or not. Church was created by copying the mind of the director of the Freelancer program. Somewhere along the line, his memories of "his" dead wife Allison split off to become a second AI - Tex. Tex found out about all of this prior to the start of the series, but Church had repressed and split off his memories because of the mental and emotional trauma he had been subjected to as part of the director's attempts to replicate the incident that produced Tex.]]
