* This is implied with the protagonist and Alisa in ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonTheTaleOfTwoTowns'' if they get married in. Alisa has dedicated herself to the [[CrystalDragonJesus Harvest Goddess]] but can marry you. The two of you can't have children though.

Some really interesting cases of this trope can be found in Catholic Hagiology:
* Edward the Confessor had a sexless marriage based on mutual religious devotion with his queen Edith. She apparently had no problem with it but it led to a succession crisis that resulted in the Norman Conquest.

* To this day, there is the concept of spiritual or "Josephite" marriage, where the couple voluntarily abstains from sex, based on the Catholic idea that Mary never lost her virginity, i.e. she and Joseph never actually consummated their marriage (Jesus's brothers, as mentioned in the Bible, are explained as being from a previous wife of Joseph).

* In ''Series/DrQuinnMedicineWoman'', Myra indicates to Horace that she's willing to settle for this, "Lots of marriages are just . . .friendship marriages.", if he can't get over his anxiety about making love to her (he's a virgin, she's a former ''prostitute''). He's so touched by her devotion that they end up finally consummating the marriage after all.
