** GenderFlipped in "Second Chances" between Troi and the two Will Rikers. Similar to "Galaxy's Child", both the Mister and the Ex are technically the same person; one is the Riker we've come to know over 6 seasons on TNG and had given up on his relationship with Troi to further his career. The other is the Riker who was stranded on Nervala VI for 8 years and still has strong feelings for Troi.

* In the LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek ''The Other Woman'', a woman and her children dislike her ex-husband's new, younger wife. Until the woman realizes that she's terminally ill and realizes that she needs to befriend the woman and teach her how to be a good mother. It works and they end up bonding so beautifully--she also gives her sincere advice on making her marriage work--that the stepmother is just as grief-stricken as everyone else when the woman finally passes away.

* Happens (in a loosest sense) in the ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode ''Trash''. [=YoSafBridge=] is currently married to Monty when the pair of them encounter Monty's war buddy Malcolm Reynolds, whom she had previously married. Like most The Missus and the Ex scenarios, this doesn't work out well for her, however in this case it's because her marriage to Mal was part of a scam and all logic suggests she's pulling some sort of con on Monty as well. She's GenreSavvy enough to realize immediately that her feminine wiles, however considerable, will also be entirely useless against the "[[BandOfBrothers War Buddy]]" brand of loyalty that Mal and Monty have towards each other, and immediately resorts to pulling a gun.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': In "Galaxy's Child", Geordi has a truly unique case as both the Missus and the Ex are the same person; one is the holographic counterpart of Dr. Leah Brahms from the earlier episode "Booby Trap", the other is the actual Leah. Things get very tense [[OtherMeAnnoysMe when the real Leah finds the holographic Leah]] repeating the earlier episode's closing lines "[[AccidentalInnuendo Every time you look at this engine, you're looking at me. Every time you touch it, it's me.]]", and accuses Geordi of being a StalkerWithACrush.

* In ''Literature/TheLostFleet'', Black Jack Geary has to deal with having his former lover as his political advisor and ally and his present lover as the captain of his flagship - which they all live aboard. Basically he keeps his head down barring the occasional plaintive plea for civility.

* A more tragic example comes from ''WaterlooRoad''. An ex-girlfriend of Earl Kelly's showed up and Maxine chucked Earl when she discovered what he was doing to the previous girlfriend's baby (selling it). [[spoiler:Maxine was shot dead by the end]].

** In a later episode, Donna and Martha meet. The Doctor worries there will be a repeat of the events of "School Reunion", but since Donna has no romantic attachment to the Doctor and Martha got over hers, the two become pretty friendly and pick at the Doctor a bit, who ends up wishing they would fight.

** Another occasion where "missus and the ex" is invoked in almost those terms is "The Name of the Doctor" in which the Doctor's current companion, Clara Oswald (who has entered into an unconventional subtle romance with the Doctor) encounters the Doctor's wife, River Song - who is actually dead, but whose consciousness has been retained inside a supercomputer (long story). The Doctor, when asked by Clara if River is his "ex", replies in the affirmative. Other than an awkward moment in which Clara, who has heard of River before, indicates she thought River was a man, the two get along fine and River is directly responsible for keeping Clara alive at the climax of the episode.
