Might involve a CannotStandThemCannotLiveWithoutThem situation, or even DomesticAbuse (but usually PlayedForLaughs). Expect frequent cases of ''RescueRomance'', even before they are officially a couple.

Many a fan theory exists as to why they're so unable or unwilling to admit the obvious: a combination of Ranma's ultra-macho upbringing and Akane's [[DoesNotLikeMen Kuno-induced misandry]] being the most popular. This may have also been due to the fact that no couple could really go anywhere [[PillarsOfMoralCharacter without horribly dishonoring most of the rest of them]].[[note]]On one hand Shampoo is considered as Ranma's legal wife in her village, plus she was Jusenkyou-cursed as a consequence of losing to his female self; on the other hand, Genma promised young!Ukyou that she and Ranma would marry, but later he stole her push-cart aka her "dowry" and ran off.[[/note]] Plus, they are still in high school so perhaps a lack of progress is understandable. At least some (minor) hints of progress at the very end - they hold hands. Ranma confess he loves Akane, although he denies it later.

Interestingly, originally Shinobu Miyake was supposed to be Ataru's LoveInterest, but Takahashi was forced to retool due to Lum's popularity. This is clear in the early chapters where Lum is more of TemporaryLoveInterest, but by a few volumes in, Lum has been promoted to female lead and Shinobu demoted to major side character (she had major ShipTease with Shutaro Mendou and eventually put in a BetaCouple with Inaba).

Male Lead: Ataru Moroboshi is a CasanovaWannabe, UnluckyEverydude, JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

Female Lead: Lum, a type B {{Tsundere}}. Alien invader from the planet Oniboshi, who, due to a misunderstanding thought she and Ataru were married. She is lovely most of the time, but not afraid to shock her 'Darling' if he acts out of line by hitting on other girls.

WillTheyOrWontThey is somewhat resolved, in the sense that it is made clear that they are the OfficialCouple, even if they aren't offically together. Like with Ranma 1/2, by the end it is clear Ataru does love Lum ("I'll never forget you Lum!"), but CanNotSpitItOut, due to his perverted personality.

Female Lead: Whichever one you think counts doesn't matter, because both Lum and Shinobu Miyake are {{Tsundere}}.

WillTheyOrWontThey goes on forever, and is never resolved - although this may be due to a crossfire of ShipSinking and ExecutiveMeddling, since the author (who favored Shinobu) and the fans (who preferred Lum) disagreed about who should be the OfficialCouple. In the end, the ResetButton was hit, rather than let Ataru and Lum progress to "official" OfficialCouple.
