* '''Basic Trope''': Doing one relatively simple action would resolve the conflict of the series.
* '''Played Straight''': AliceAndBob are living in [[AwfulWeddedLife a loveless, unhappy sitcom marriage.]] [[HenpeckedHusband Bob]] finally gets up the nerve to tell [[{{Tsundere}} Alice]] that he wants a divorce. AliceAndBob get divorced, and all the fighting stops, thus ending the season.
* '''Exaggerated''': AliceAndBob get divorced, and the series is literally over; [[LeftHanging there's no telling]] what becomes of AliceAndBob (good, bad, or in-between) after the divorce.
* '''Justified''': The entire series focuses on those two characters, with the rocky marriage as their primary conflict; ending the marriage basically ends the plot.

** The series is set [[ValuesDissonance during a time]] when divorce was scandalous (possibly too scandalous for TV), so divorce really ''isn't'' as much of an option for AliceAndBob as the audience (especially a modern, Western audience) might be led to believe.
* '''Inverted''': AliceAndBob divorce, but the divorce makes the arguing ''worse'', as they quibble and quarrel over things like [[DivorceAssetsConflict assets and debts, child support, alimony]], etc.
** AliceAndBob [[YoYoPlotPoint keep divorcing or breaking up and getting back together]].
* '''Subverted''': AliceAndBob get divorced, which opens up any number of new plotlines (such as AliceAndBob reentering the dating scene, GuessWhoImMarrying, DivorceAssetsConflict, just to name a few.)
