* Kagome's mom, grandpa, and brother are all very accepting of Kagome's time-traveling to fight demons in the feudal era in ''Manga/InuYasha''. They seemingly think [[YouCantFightFate it's better to accept and support Kagome's unavoidable destiny]] - Mrs. Higurashi is GenreSavvy enough to even buy presents for the rest of the group.

They also don't have a problem with Inuyasha and notice early on that she has feelings for him. When her brother asks Inuyasha for romantic advice, he was shocked to learn that they had never told each other they were in love.

* Comedian Phil Jupitus mentions that it's easy to say you'll be a "cool, understanding" parent when your kids are young, and quite another to uphold that promise when you're told that your teenage daughter's boyfriend is going to be...'staying over'.

* Sherman Hollis from ''WebVideo/CarmillaTheSeries'' is this to his daughter, Laura, despite his [[MyBelovedSmother insane]] [[OverprotectiveDad overprotective nature]]. He's completely fine with Laura being a lesbian, his issues with her dating Carmilla having more to do with the fact that Carmilla's an undead bloodsucker of ambiguous morality than with the fact that Carmilla's a girl. Even that, he gets over eventually. He's also immediately accepting of [=LaFontaine=], Laura's friend who's non-binary, and makes an immediate effort to correct himself when he accidentally misgenders them.

** This can be partially explained if one is familiar with [[VisualNovel/TriangleHeart3SweetSongsForever the source material]], where her father and older siblings are all ninja bodyguards. Not letting her run off on a potentially life-threatening mission would be downright hypocritical.

The alternatives are not that much better: OverprotectiveDad, EducationMama, HandsOffParenting, FantasyForbiddingFather, or even outright ParentalAbandonment. Compare ParentalObliviousness, where the secret still has to be kept--but it's strangely easy. See also DotingParent, MilhollandRelationshipMoment, ReasonableAuthorityFigure.

* According to WordOfGod (and later shown in a comic), [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Avatar Korra's]] parents, Tonraq and Senna, are fully supportive of their daughter's romantic relationship with [[HonestCorporateExecutive Asami Sato]]--while they're obviously a little surprised upon first learning of it, they're very happy for the two, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming even going so far as to treat Asami like a second daughter]]. However, Korra's parents do make a point of warning her and Asami that [[RealityEnsues not everyone may be as accepting of it as they are.]]
