* 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.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' Sour Cream's mother Vidalia ended up marrying the fisherman Yellowtail some time after Sour Cream was born from a brief fling Vidalia had with [[{{Slimeball}} Marty]] that left her pregnant. Yellowtail seems to get along with Sour Cream and not treat him any different from his biological son, Onion, but the two disagree over Sour Cream's dream to be a DJ when Yellowtail wants him to [[FollowInMyFootsteps be a fisherman like him]], and [[CallingParentsByTheirName calls him by name]] or "my stepdad". Once Sour Cream sees Marty's true colors in the episode "[[Recap/StevenUniverseS3E7DropBeatDad Drop Beat Dad]]" he switches to "Yellowdad" and the two seem to be on better terms.

* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}},'' [[DeadpanSnarker Marco's]] father had a mental breakdown when his wife died, and sank into a deep depression, even losing his job as a computer engineer. When he starts dating again, Marco doesn't really seem to have any problems with the new paramour herself; just her [[MisterMuffykins evil toy poodle]], the fact that she's his ''math teacher'' (that'll teach Marco not to make the school call home!), and, oh, yeah--his mom's [[FakingTheDead not really dead]].

* Odd variation in ''MarmaladeBoy''. Miki's parents Jin and Rumi get divorced amiably, so do Yuu's parents Youji and Chiyako... and then they swap couples and the two "new" families move into a BigFancyHouse to avoid parental issues. It takes Miki more than a while to accept it, though: despite liking her step-parents very much, she can't get used to the rest of the deal, unlike her nonchalant new stepbrother Yuu. [[spoiler: It turns out that Yuu himself ''was'' just as distressed as Miki, and for the same reasons. [[StepfordSmiler He just hid it much better]], and in fact he confesses that he envied Miki for being able to voice her disagreement while he couldn't bring himself to do so.]]

* The sister-series to ''Higurashi'', ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' follows this up with an inversion. Battler likes his step-mother, Kyrie, viewing her as a sort of CoolBigSis. It's his ''father'' Rudolf he holds a grudge against for remarrying so soon after the death of Battler's mother Asumu. In response, he went to live with his maternal grandparents for the six years leading up to the beginning of the story. And to make things more complicated? [[spoiler:There was a child switch involved, and Asumu is ''not'' Battler's bio mom. ''Kyrie'' is his biological mother.]]
