* In ''VideoGame/TheSims'', this is a very common player tactic. See two sims you think look cool? Marry one now, have your kids grow up and marry the other.

At the end he and April reconcile ([[FirstFatherWins a whole six hours after her boyfriend dies!]]), and while it's not clear, it seems Nova is going to hook up with their son Matt, who is closer to her age.

[[AC:LiveActionTV]]
* A ''very'' weird one occurs in ''Series/DoctorWho''. Amy has Rory and the Doctor as potential love interests, and chooses Rory. The Doctor may or may not have some romantic interest in her, and he also may fancy Rory just a little bit -- enough to kiss him once, at least. (Rory, for his part, is [[SingleTargetSexuality completely Amy-sexual]].) Amy and Rory have a daughter, River, who grows up to marry the Doctor. It's severely complicated by the fact that while they are all time travellers, they are not all necessarily travelling in the same direction or at the same speed. The Doctor meets River before he meets Amy and Rory, on the day River dies, and likes her before anyone except River knows who her parents are. River decided, when she was a kid, to grow up ''together'' with her parents at the same age as them, never telling them who she was. Oh, and River has [[ExtraParentConception another mother]] -- the Doctor's BondCreature, eternal LoveInterest and wife, the TARDIS.
