* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Marge and Homer Simpson are (sadly) a milder version of this trope.
** Some episodes answer the question.
** In TheMovie Marge actually can't come up with an answer to this question after his latest and most extreme bout of {{jerkass}}ery and selfishness, and leaves him as a result. He does make up for all the dickish things he did, though, and they [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming got back together]].

Marge's sisters Patty and Selma never approved of their relationship throughout the entire series.



** Patty and Selma never approved of their relationship throughout the entire series. Upon meeting him when they were teenagers, they immediately hate him for no reason at all. They spend most of their time trying to separate them and pair Marge with someone else (usually Artie Ziff). Though, Selma is more tolerable to their relationship, because Homer helped her out and was jealous of their relationship. But Patty continues to hate Homer, even more so after she got out of the closet.

* If you follow [[BloodKnight Ittosai's]] [[MultipleEndings Good ending]] in ''YoJinBo'', this is the general reaction of the other guys. However, due to their tendencies toward [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy]], it comes off as "What does she see in him ''that I'm not better at''?"

* The reality TV show ''Is She Really Going Out With Him?'' takes this question and runs with it, picking out a couple where the guy can, generally speaking, be referred to as a "tool" with no objection. In most episodes, the guy is shown as being uncaring (or having very messed up priorities regarding his relationships), insensitive, and an all-around jerk. Whether this is the reality of the situation, or the result of [[ExecutiveMeddling post-production editing]] is sometimes debatable, but when the boyfriend shows up to a formal dinner with his friends (who weren't invited) wearing ''very'' casual clothing (including muscle-shirts), it tends to be pretty clear why he and his girlfriend are on that show.
