* ComicBook/DruidCity: Hunter Hastings, with Misa Saito and Mannie Sue. Misa is too determined and independent to be tied down by the productive, but fragile, Hunter. Mannie Sue is too damaged and vulnerable to be with the wiser and far more unscrupulous Hunter.

* In ''FanFic/HotspringSouls'' and its sequel ''SliceOfSouls!'', the Bearer of the Curse and the Emerald Herald have this kind of relationship. The Bearer of the Curse is an ExtremeDoormat and HenpeckedHusband, always having to endure his wife's non-stop nagging and being blamed for everything that goes wrong. At one point he's made to sleep on the floor without any blankets or pillows, and in the sequel he almost gets hit in the face by flying pots and pans in the kitchen when the Emerald Herald is having a tantrum ''over a broken dishwasher.'' Their relationship is so bad even that their ''pet cat'' has to intervene. Though in the same chapter, [[spoiler: the two finally address the root of their relationship problems and make an effort to fix their marriage. In the later chapters, they actually start to act more like a couple again.]]

* Blanche and Harry Morton in ''Radio/TheBurnsAndAllenShow'': constantly fighting, yelling, and insulting each other. They only team up when something happens that they both want to condemn more than each other, usually involving a mistaken impression that George has done something terrible.

* Shinji and Asuka from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Both love each other, but they are not exactly mentally sound (both are afraid of getting hurt by other people, but Asuka pushes them away as Shinji runs from them), and their relationship is not healthy: Asuka is a fiercely competitive young woman who teases Shinji in what she considers flirting, while Shinji is a reclusive, socially inept introvert who doesn't respond well to her flirtations, either acting as an ExtremeDoormat till she’s placated or lashing back at her on occasion, leading Asuka to be even angrier, more unsecure and more depressed. The ending of ''End of Evangelion'' at least hints that that their relationship will get better.

* In ''{{Rent}}'', there is a song called 'Tango: Maureen', all about how Maureen torments her boyfriends/girlfriends with compulsive flirting: "When you're dancing her dance, you don't stand a chance, her grip on romance makes you fall. So you think 'might as well dance a tango to hell'...at least I'll have tangoed at all."

* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': Ritsuko has convinced herself that her relationship with Gendo is good and he actually cares about her even though Gendo ALWAYS treats her like a pawn and he constantly shows nothing is as important as Yui to him. Chapter 8 provides a good example of this: Ritsuko got hurt during a battle and was taken to med bay. Gendo never went to see her. He spent hours making sure Rei and Unit 01 were fine and he came to see one of the pilots, but he did not spend a second waiting for Ritsuko's side. Ritsuko was aware of this and suitably angry. Still when he called her to see if she was ok she felt happier, thinking he cared... until he asked if she could start to work again.

* "Paradise" by Eyedea & Abilities describes a boy and a girl trapped in this kind of relationship. The final verse, however, takes the perspective of the man, who finally finds the courage to break the cycle for both their sakes.
-->"At first it felt so right, but after one too many fights,\\
He turned out the hallway light, and all the wonder turned to spite\\
\\
So they sleep in the same bed with guns to each other's heads,\\
Dead to romance, boiling the blood that painted roses red\\
Suffering from post-honeymoon disease,\\
Leached to his whole existence, she'll die if he decides to leave\\
\\
Addicted to the way she feels when they spend time together,\\
Detouring the now in a childish attempt to find forever,\\
Despite the fact they hold each other heart to heart,\\
You can't be that close to somebody without feeling so far apart."
