* 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.]]

** However, she finds out in season 2 that her mom and the teacher got back together without telling her. [[CallingTheOldManOut She calls her mom out on it,]] and, after a bit of a cooling off period, the three go out to dinner together in an effort to connect outside of the classroom/house.

* Used tragically in ''Anime/DeathParade''. Yousuke's mother left him at a young age and his father remarried later. His step-mother said it was one of her dreams for him to call her "Mom" but Yousuke didn't take well to it. His last memory was his step-mother crying over his body after he [[DrivenToSuicide jumped from his bedroom window]]. After remembering that he committed suicide and for such petty reasons Yousuke breaks down into tears.

* Mai from ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'' DoesNotLikeMen because her mother re-married. It's unknown how her step-father is but she dislikes him.



* In {{ComicBook/WITCH}}, Will is ''not'' happy about her mother Elizabeth dating Dean Collins. Mostly because of the fact that Dean is Will's ''history teacher'' and she's BookDumb. Aaaawkward.
** They are currently on friendly terms. It helps that Dean has since become the father of Will's half-brother.

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' is an interesting example: Tsumihoroboshi-hen has Rina, the new girlfriend of Rena's father. It turns out that [[spoiler: She's the lover of Satoko's EvilUncle Teppei and plans to extort money from Rena's father, and when Rena finds out, Rina tries to kill her. Rena ends up killing her in self-defense. Then she kills Teppei. [[FromBadToWorse Things go downhill from there]]]]. Of course, Rena has issues with Rina even before all of the stuff above. It mostly had to do with the fact that [[spoiler: Rena's mom cheated on her dad. She liked her mom's boyfriend before her mother told her that she was pregnant and intended to divorce her father to marry the boyfriend]].

* On ''WesternAnimation/{{The Simpsons}}'' Comic Book Guy and Agnes Skinner dated for a time, made all the more awkward by the fact that CBG was ''younger'' than Seymour Skinner. It didn't appear to last past that episode.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'': Even a hint of Malory having a sexual relationship hits Archer's BerserkButton (and Malory is FAR from celibate) so this comes up a lot. It's especially amusing with Burt Reynolds since Archer is torn between his love of Reynolds and his somewhat creepy obsession with keeping his mom single.

Added DiffLines:

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Witch}}'' has Will's mom hitting it off with her new history teacher. Will has no issue with her mother dating however the fact its her ''teacher'' turns her off. Will ends up accidentally ruining their romance when she knocked out her teacher (because she thought he was a monster in disguise). This causes him not to drop off papers to Will's mom, which leads to them breaking up because Will's mom deems him unreliable.

* In later books of ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'', Percy's mother Sally begins dating Paul after her husband Gabe "mysteriously" disappears. Percy is fine with this for the most part (though he does call Paul "Blowfish" for some time after mishearing his last name) because Gabe was an abusive asshole to both him and Sally and Paul, in contrast, is a nice guy who makes Sally genuinely happy.
