* It's heavily insinuated (and in one case, [[FreudWasRight said outright by Sigmund Freud]]) that if Larry and Tuddrussel in ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'' aren't actually a married couple they at least function like one, with Otto as their adopted child.

* Deconstructed in a "The Perfect Woman" by Creator/RobertSheckley, where a man notices his robot wife is slowing down, so he drives her back to the factory to be replaced while trying to ignore her pleas that she still loves him.

** You can also have your own robotic spouses as well. While you can't romance Nick Valentine and X6-88, you can romance Curie and [[spoiler:Paladin Danse]].

* In anotger book by Asimov, ''Literature/TheRobotsOfDawn'', the robot whose murder is being investigated was that to Gladia, although this part of the relationship was extremely private - Auroran society views a marriage without the potential for kids as a self-contradiction, and it is a major plot point that one person seemed to know about it [[INeverSaidItWasPoison without being told]].

* Mr. Universe, InformationBroker and hacker extraordinaire in ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' and... Well, she's not so much a SexBot as she is a bog-standard RealDoll sex toy with a few extra features, the kind of thing the yellow press would have you believe will be bringing about the extinction of Japanese culture in a generation or two. However from what is shown, Mr. Universe cares very deeply indeed for Lenore (Mrs. Universe?), despite her being a robot and showing no signs of sentience. He apparently cried like a baby at his wedding. (In case it wasn't already obvious, [[{{Hikkikomori}} Mr. Universe doesn't get out and about much]] and [[GoMadFromTheIsolation might have gone a bit peculiar.]])

** [[spoiler: However this could be because this Krieger is actually one of his clone brothers, where the original was killed in the previous season by falling to his death fighting three other clones, and the surviving clone wasn't fully used to taking the real Krieger's place.]]

* Another BioWare example: In ''Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', the Consular's healing companion, Tharan Cedrax, and the hologram Holiday. Tharan discovered Holiday was sentient and freed her from a Hutt who only saw her as an exotic toy. He then made her his trusted assistant and business partner, and the two clearly adore each other. Due to her nature, he has to take care of his physical needs with short-term flings, but it's an arrangement Holiday usually doesn't mind. At the end of Tharan's arc, the Consular can half-jokingly suggest this.
