* In ''Half Magic'' by Creator/EdwardEager, the kids introduce their mother to the new paramour, and are mostly quite happy with the whole situation -- except that they think it'd be strange to call him "father", so he gets declared an honorary uncle.

# The kid doesn't like the person at all and ''never'' gets used to them. This can become a recurring plot element, and likely to have the line "[[YoureNotMyFather You're Not My Father]]!" (or Mother) spoken at least once. For extra angst, the new spouse might be [[RemarriedToTheMistress the reason the first marriage broke up]] due to [[YourCheatingHeart infidelity]], which puts extra strain on the chances of the two coming to an understanding. If the person is obviously a villain, this can become [[GuessWhoImMarrying Guess Who I'm Marrying]], with the kid often being the OnlySaneMan who can see the evilness of the new paramour. But even then, sometimes the kid puts this aside to let their parent be happy.

* ''LightNovel/MagicalGirlRaisingProject'' has this come up multiple times as part of Kano Sazanami's/Ripple's backstory. An extended flashback shows two instances involving it, starting with an incident in elementary school where other kids make fun of her over her last name changing every other month or so (which ends with her punching them out after they suggest that her mother is a whore, and as such she must be one as well), and ending just before the story proper as she meets her mother's newest husband (which ends with her knocking him unconscious and running away to live on her own after [[spoiler:he starts trying to molest her]]).

* In ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'', a big strain on Wirt and Greg's relationship is the fact that they're only half-brothers, as Wirt's mother remarried for unspecified reasons and later had Greg with her new husband. Wirt refers to him as "Greg's stupid dad" and evidently does not like him, with this disdain extending to Greg.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', Hinoka was the slowest of her siblings to warm up to her stepmother, Mikoto, after her birth mother Ikona died and her father Sumeragi [[RemarriedToTheMistress married Mikoto]], who was likely a concubine prior to becoming his legal wife. Initially, Hinoka was very cruel and defiant towards Mikoto, though over the years she warmed up to her and regrets her actions by the present time of the story.

* While [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Ivan Vorpatril]] is well in his thirties when [[GrandDame his mother]] [[TheMourningAfter finally decides]] to hook up again, he ''doesn't'' take it well:
-->'''Miles''': You don't need to bellow.
-->'''Ivan''': I'm not bellowing, I'm being firm!
-->'''Miles''': Could you please be firm at a lower volume?
-->'''Ivan''': No. [[TheSpymaster Simon Illyan]] is ''sleeping with my mother'', and it's your fault!
** On the other hand, Miles himself takes Cordelia [[spoiler:hooking up with admiral Jole after Aral's death]] much better, but then, as it turns out, [[spoiler:Oliver Jole [[{{Polyamory}} always was a third leg]] in their relationship]], which he probably knew (or at least suspected) all along, so he long have used to it.
