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. 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.

Ranma seems to be locked in a similar situation with all his possible LoveInterests. Shampoo loves him but she can also be very violent and possessive as well as prone to attack those who get in between once in a while, whereas Ukyo has ChildhoodFriends deets but she also can get snippy to him (and both have been argued to have more than one whiff of {{Yandere}}), and Kodachi is... [[YanDere well]], [[RichBitch herself.]]

WillTheyOrWontThey is finally resolved after 70 plus episodes. Ending on a definite note with Godai and Kyoko married and with a daughter named Haruka. Their issues were more serious and realistic {Godai's [[YouSuck wishy-washiness]], Kyoko's [[TheMourningAfter inability to let go of her late husband]]} than Takahashi's usual stubborn [[CanNotSpitItOut Will Not Spit It Out]].

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 is eventually put in a BetaCouple with Inaba).

If there is a [[LoveEpiphany love epiphany]] with one of these characters, expect it to change nothing, at least in the short term.

Creator/RumikoTakahashi is the mistress of this trope; her works display it so well that anime fandom refers to it as a "[[TropeNamer Takahashi Couple.]]"

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