* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Lucrecia, despite having feelings for Vincent Valentine, choose to be with Professor Hojo. We are never shown a reason why she agreed to have a child with him. Her not being with Vincent has some degree of reason, she blames herself for [[spoiler:his father's death]]. Hojo? He acts smug when she agrees to be his wife, he treats their child as an experiment while still in the womb, he never shows any actual sign he cares for her or is even attracted to her. Vincent even questions if she's okay with what Hojo does, but tries to avoid hurting her [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy as long as he made her happy]]. Of course, if things went differently, the world would never have met her son, [[spoiler: Sephiroth]].

* Stanley and Helen Roper from ''Series/ThreesCompany''. They only show they love each other once every blue moon, with most of the gags between them involving Stanley's unwillingness to touch Helen and Helen feeling that she's taken for granted. One wonders why they never got a divorce. This is directly taken from the original BritCom series where the Ropers consist of an ineffectual weakling married to a chain-smoking frustrated shrew.

* John and Mary in ''Series/FatherTed'' are an Irish take on this trope - a married couple who utterly loathe each other but who live in a Catholic nation where divorce was illegal up until the 1990's and which even today is loaded with social stigma and religious sanction. They have no choice but to pretend to be happily married in public - especially in front of the local priests.

* In ''[[VideoGame/AmnesiaOtome Amnesia: Memories]]'', Toma calls out the heroine on this when she [[EasilyForgiven easily forgives]] a {{Yandere}} who drugs her food, locks her up in a cage, and almost rapes her because she just loves him too much, saying that she has horrible taste in men. The kicker? ''Toma is that very same yandere.''

* One of the cases in ''VideoGame/ZootopiaCrimeFiles'' features a mouse named Donna who is head-over-heels for an ugly, sleazy gerbil named Dinks. Neither Nick nor Judy understand the appeal.

** Vegeta and Bulma: An arrogant, superpowered, {{jerkass}} half-monkey prince with homicidal tendencies and a supremely intelligent, yet vain and equally arrogant woman. Had a fling, a son (later a daughter), eventually married and are still together. (Bulma once said that even ''she'' doesn't know why she's attracted to him, although it's probably because of his features[[note]] Most of Bulma's love interests were tall dark and handsome and she was attracted to Goku when she first saw him all grown-up[[/note]] and the fact that [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys he's a bad boy]].)
*** Amusingly, one episode of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' has Vegeta remark that he doesn't exactly dislike Bulma's pushy side, and Goku responds with a smile that Chi-Chi can be the same way. A stunned Piccolo realizes that Saiyan men are attracted to strong-willed women, mentally kicking himself for not figuring it out sooner.
