Most commonly broadcasted with a FirstKiss, but every once in a while you find a more… drastic variant (GladToBeAliveSex comes to mind). Compare RelationshipReveal--a moment where an implied but existing couple becomes canon. A move from casual to serious can involve IGotYouADrawer. Also compare TheyDo--the point past which the RomanceArc is concluded and the relationship becomes a constant that feeds ''other'' plot threads. Contrast DerailingLoveInterests-- where a relationship Downgrade happens to a RomanticFalseLead so an OfficialCouple can be hooked up. Though they often coincide (e.g. in a LastMinuteHookup) the two are far from synonymous; a RelationshipUpgrade can be the beginning of hardships, trials and tribulations that the relationship may not survive at all.
