* ''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]].

* [[TheDitz Caboose]] from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', in a platonic example, believes himself to be [[{{Jerkass}} Church's]] best friend. 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* While they do actually love each other, this is about where the Morrigan and Baphomet's relationship ''starts'' in ''Comicbook/TheWickedAndTheDivine''. Between his cheating and her constant violent rages, it...deteriorates quite a bit from there over the course of the series.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.
