* Hari Seldon, the creator of the {{Foundation}}, has a robotic wife named Dors Venabili. However, Dors is [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot ridiculously human]], and Asimov never portrays the relationship as in any way disturbing.

* The classic (1938) short story ''Helen O'Loy'' by Lester del Rey. A medical student (Phil) and a mechanic (Dave) modify a household robot to have emotions. While Phil is away Dave activates Helen, who learns about love (from watching soap operas!) When Phil comes back home Dave has already fled from her affections, but changes his mind and marries her. On his death Helen requests that Phil shut her down and bury her with Dave. Phil does so, even though it's revealed that he'd [[UnrequitedLove fallen for Helen too]].

* The ScarletWitch married ComicBook/TheVision, an android, and while she was completely insane, it had nothing to do with her robotic love interest. Her insanity happened later, largely because of the DiabolusExMachina that destroyed her marriage. She and Vision were an adorable couple while it lasted. True to this trope, she ''was'' criticized for it. Especially by her brother, who was furious. (His argument that "robots aren't real people!" when his family have been targets of FantasticRacism all their life was hypocritical, sure, but he made it.)

* In ''TabletopGame/HcSvntDracones'' marriages between [[PettingZooPeople Vectors]] and [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Cogs]] are completely socially acceptable. Especially since they can "interbreed" to an extent, translating genes into design parameters and vice-versa.
