WillTheyOrWontThey Well, They Do.

The conclusion of a RomanceArc with a HappyEnding. The point where we are finally done with [[SecondActBreakUp breakups]], [[ThirdActMisunderstanding misunderstandings]] and second thoughts. If the story is done with them, they live HappilyEverAfter. If it isn't, when the rest of it happens to them they'll have each other. Give them enough time, and they'll likely be HappilyMarried by then.

Unless the story decides to start up a ''whole new'' string of complications from scratch somewhere in the far future, they finally get to catch a break. And chances are they [[EarnYourHappyEnding had to go through a lot to earn it]].

If there has been an engaging "will it work?" plot up to this point, a TheyDo can induce a variation of ShippingBedDeath (or, of course, it can induce the standard brand if it doubles as a RelationshipUpgrade)- in which case, cue a [[AuthorsSavingThrow last second split up]], one party getting run over [[PutOnABus by a bus]] or some other malarkey. Writers may try to avert this by segueing into a new kind of story- [[ChangingOfTheGuard shifting the focus]] to a [[BetaCouple newer couple]] to keep the old romance plots open, or using the stable relationship to open up fresh new avenues for comedy, drama and adventure.

Contrast with MaybeEverAfter, which is when a romance arc ends without clearly confirming whether or not TheyDo.

'''Spoilers ahoy'''.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''VisualNovel/DaCapo'' plays it straight with [[spoiler:Junichi [[BrotherSisterIncest hooking up]] with Nemu, [[NotBloodSiblings his stepsister]], and all the troubles they had to face afterwards made the series' quality improve ''by orders of magnitude''. Special mention to the [[TearJerker extremely sad]] endings [[DieForOurShip Miharu, Yoriko]], Kotori and Sakura received. Especially Sakura.]] In Da Capo If, [[spoiler:Nemu is dead and Junichi is with Kotori.]]
* An atypical example in ''VisualNovel/DaCapoII'', where Koko and Yoshiyuki hook up ''in the very first episode'' (Is it possible to ''not'' get StrangledByTheRedString when you do that?). [[spoiler:They break up late into the first season, making this the "new set of complications" DownerEnding variant.]]
* The OfficialCouple of ''KareKano'' is a fantastic instance of this trope; most of the interesting conflict starts ''after'' they become boyfriend and girlfriend in the manga version. In the anime it's the other way around, due to the amazingly bad [[GeckoEnding last handful of episodes]] after the author threw a fit over the anime's comic elements and the director quit.
* ''ItazuraNaKiss'' continues at full steam after they get married. Some fans will just tell you to skip the first season, because that's where it gets better.
* Tomoya and Nagisa of ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'' fame (at one point a DiabolusExMachina steps in, with Tomoya being screwed over repeatedly, first with [[spoiler:Nagisa's death, then Ushio]]'s, but then they get better).
* ''Manga/InuYasha'' and Kagome as well as Sango and Miroku.
* Takagi and Miyoshi, the BetaCouple of ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}''. Interesting in that they are involved in a more complex love triangle and get together before the OfficialCouple.
* Kyo and Tohru from ''FruitsBasket''.
* Ed and Winry in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''.
* Kyosuke and Madoka from ''Manga/KimagureOrangeRoad''.
* Akira and Utako from ''ManOfManyFaces''.
* Misaki and Usui from ''Manga/MaidSama''.
* Yusaku and Kyoko from ''Manga/MaisonIkkoku''.
* Keitaro and Naru from ''Manga/LoveHina''.
* Gilbert and Serge of ''Manga/KazeToKiNoUta''.
* Sora and Sunao of ''LightNovel/{{Sukisho}}''.
* Alan and Chaton of ''MarchenAwakensRomance''.
* Side characters Bisca and Alzack from ''Manga/FairyTail''. They even have a little girl.
* MartianSuccessorNadesico Akito and Yurika finalize their relationship between the events of the final episode (where they kiss) and TheMovie when they're married.
* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Casca and Guts. Of course, it went FromBadToWorse for them.
* Otani and Koizumi in ''LovelyComplex''.
* ''Manga/GirlFriends'' After a few volumes and a lot of WillTheyOrWontThey, [[SchoolgirlLesbians Mari and Akko]] finally get together for real.
* Koshiro and Nanoka from KoiKaze. [[BrotherSisterIncest Whether or not this is a good thing is up to the audience to decide.]]
* Reiji and Aila from GundamBuildFighters, in a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Heartwarming]], and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Funny]].
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': After the screwed up romantic plot line in the manga, the final movie, ''[[Anime/Naruto7TheLast The Last: Naruto the Movie]]'' is a confirmed RomanceArc for Naruto and [[spoiler:Hinata]]. The DistantFinale epilogue makes their eventual relationship and marriage a ForegoneConclusion.

[[folder:Comicbooks]]
* Reed Richards and Susan Storm of ''ComicBook/FantasticFour''. They are perhaps one of the oldest and most stable couples in comics... even ComicBook/CivilWar couldn't split them up!
* [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Cyclops and Jean Grey]] may not have been married until the 90s (deaths, resurrections, and ReplacementGoldfish will do that to a couple), but had been in a relationship for about as long as Reed and Sue, becoming an old married couple since before they ever tied the knot. Then... the first of the trilogy of marriages being [[ExecutiveMeddling forcibly broken up]] because they are "more interesting" now (the others being [[OneMoreDay Spider-Man / Mary Jane]] and [[Comicbook/TheAvengers Hank Pym / the Wasp.)]]
* At the end of the ''Transfer of Power'' arc, [[ComicBook/TheAuthority Apollo and Midnighter]] marry and adopt [[GooGooGodlike baby Jenny Quantum]]. [[BadassFamily Business continues]] [[BattleCouple as normal]].
* Lois and Clark of ''Comicbook/{{Superman}}'' in ComicBook/SupermanTheWeddingAlbum. Interestingly, Seigel and Shuster wanted to give them a RelationshipUpgrade early on, but [[ExecutiveMeddling DC said no]]. It took about sixty years and two {{Continuity Reboot}}s before they found themselves back in a place where it could happen, and it took another half-dozen Continuity Reboots to break them up.
* [[UnholyMatrimony Titania and Crusher]] "The Absorbing Man" Creel of MarvelComics.
* [[ComicBook/SpiderMan Peter Parker and Mary Jane]] went through this for two decades. Though [[OneMoreDay their marriage has since been erased from history by a demon in the mainstream books]], they remain very much happily married in other continuities, including [[SpiderGirl one where they have kids]]. In the newspaper dailies, the two have been married for well over twenty five years, to the point where, when the writers attempted to reverse TimeSkip the series to pre-marriage days, outcry made the sequence AllJustADream.
* [[MonicasGang Monica and Jimmy Five]] finally get married in a TimeSkip chapter of the [[SpinoffBabies Spinoff Teens]] manga, which was already a TimeSkip to begin with.
* [[ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog Antoine D'Coolette and Bunnie Rabbot]]: Dated for just over a decade and has been married since issue 174.
* [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk Bruce Banner and Betty Ross]] had a solid marriage despite everything they went through. It took her death and resurrection as [[spoiler:Red She-Hulk]] to break them up. Betty was earlier married to and divorced [[ColonelKilgore Glenn Talbot]], who was even more rabid about going after Hulk than General Ross.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fairy Tales]]
* In ''Literature/TheWhiteDove'', when the prince has claimed the white dove/princess, the witch must let them marry. (She intends to kill them in the morning.)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In the ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime'' series:
** [[TheWatson Dr. Watson]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E10Blink Sally Sparrow]] marry an episode after first meeting each other (albeit, "Watson and Sparrow" largely focuses on their relationship, with the original events of "Blink" framing the story).
** Literature/SherlockHolmes and [[WesternAnimation/SherlockHolmesInTheTwentySecondCentury Beth Lestrade]] have a far more complicated time of it -- with an entire three-part finale to work through their relationship. They do end up saying their vows, though with the knowledge that Beth will be leaving for her own time soon.
* [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8803490/12/Extended-Stay Chapter 12]] of the {{Superjail}} fanfic ''Fanfic/ExtendedStay'' has the Warden and the Mistress getting married at last while she is 8 months pregnant. Of course, it's just before the ceremony ends when [[MaternityCrisis her water suddenly breaks]].
* [[MayDecemberRomance Clover the Clever and Commander Hurricane]] in ''FanFic/ABriefHistoryOfEquestria.'' [[EveryoneCanSeeIt No one's surprised]], after years of BelligerentSexualTension and [[SnarkToSnarkCombat verbal jousting]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films]]
* {{Shrek}} and Fiona at the end of the first film. The second and third ones are actually built around their relationship.
* [[Series/{{Firefly}} Kaylee and Simon]] at the end of ''Film/{{Serenity}}.''
* Most Disney animated films end in a 'they do', the more recent ones with a lot of WillTheyOrWontThey in between.
* In Disney/{{Tangled}}, Flynn assures us in the narration that they do -- and Rapunzel makes her only comment at that point
** "after years and years of asking and asking". the follow-up short shows he's exaggerating.
* Unlike most Disney couples, [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Aladdin and Jasmine]] simply became engaged at the end of their first movie. They then embarked on [[Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar several]] [[WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries adventures]] before [[Disney/AladdinAndTheKingOfThieves tying the knot]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Sabriel and Touchstone of the ''Literature/OldKingdom'' trilogy. Just as much fun to read [[HappilyMarried eighteen years into their marriage]] as when she [[HumanPopsicle unfroze him from Popsiclehood]].
* A partial list from the {{Deryni}} works: Evaine MacRorie and Rhys Thuryn, Alaric Morgan and Richenda Countess of Marley, Rory Haldane and Noelie Ramsay, Brecon Ramsay and Richelle Haldane, Kelson and Araxie Haldane.
* Han Solo and Leia in the original StarWars trilogy. Later Luke and Mara Jade in the ExpandedUniverse.
** The Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse gave us more than you would think. Corran and Mirax Horn, Wedge and Iella Antilles, Tycho and Winter Celchu, Wes Jansen and his ego... Corran and Mirax are a particularly good example, though, since they got a series chronicling their FourthDateMarriage, then several books chronicling the results of that marriage.
* In the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'', ''Diplomatic Immunity'' has Miles Vorkosigan HappilyMarried and still at the top of his game. Of course, you could say ItRunsInTheFamily - this is the Vorkosigans we're talking about. Miles's parents Cordelia and Aral get HappilyMarried at the end of ''Shards of Honor'', continue to be awesome throughout ''Barrayar'', then settle down to a life of (comparatively) RetiredBadass-ness.
* Dora and Miron, main characters of ''Literature/DoraWilkSeries'' have been having {{UST}} going on for first three books and finally get into stable relationship at the end of ''Winner Takes It All''. Of course, troubles start one thirds through book four.
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}''
** Commander Vimes started out as a parody of the FilmNoir detective, so obviously he couldn't be in a happy relationship. He got married to Lady Sybil in [[Discworld/MenAtArms his second appearance]] though and it stuck throughout the wacky adventures he's been through.
** Magrat and Verence get married at the end of ''Discworld/LordsAndLadies'', after spending ''Discworld/WyrdSisters'' and most of L&L in a state of mutual misunderstanding.
* AmeliaPeabody's son Ramses and adopted daughter Nefret, after going through several books of misunderstanding one another, finally get married and become another BattleCouple, without repeating the style of Peabody and Emerson (although they do produce yet another generation of alarmingly precocious children).
* In JohnCWright's ''[[Literature/TheGoldenOecumene The Golden Transcedence]]'', after two and half books insisting that Daphne Tercius, being a version of his wife Daphne Prime, is not his wife, Phaethon reflects on the differences, tells Daphne Tercius that she is not his wife, and asks her to marry him as herself, not as a version of his wife.
* In ''Literature/MysticAndRider'', Senneth and Tayse are both completely {{Badass}} and made of awesome, and they finally manage to get past the AnguishedDeclarationOfLove phase at the very end of the book. In the subsequent books, in which they are together, and then married, they are far, ''far'' more awesome because they complete each other. BattleCouple extraordinaire; terrifyingly powerful fire mystic dedicated to simple human kindness marries sword-wielding BadassNormal who loves her more than life itself.
* Literature/HarryPotter and his best friend's sister Ginny's BigDamnKiss in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'' signifies this. The same later happens with Ron and Hermione in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows''. [[spoiler: In the WhereAreTheyNow DistantFinale we get to see both couples married and their children.]]
* In a strange variation on a theme, in Hal Duncan's ''Literature/TheBookOfAllHours'', [[spoiler: Jack Flash/Carter and Puck/Thomas really do finally get to be together (without either one being brutally murdered by the other) ... sorta. Considering how by the end of ''Ink'', Reality has been re-written so many times that not even Reynard/Guy/Fox could put the thing back together, and he was the damn book's ''keeper'', the fact that they're present in any shape or form is impressive, to say the least (particularly after what happened to Seamus).]] In any case, they get things their way eventually, [[spoiler: in whatever variant of reality that still includes them.]] If you would like directions on the various interpretations of the situation, you'll find MindScrew on your right, and you can follow that straight down until you hit GoMadFromTheRevelation (after which your confusion will no longer be a problem).
* In ''TheEyreAffair'', there are great complaints that Jane and Mr. Rochester don't get this. Thursday fixes it. [[spoiler:Then there's her and Landen.]]
* In LMMontgomery's ''AnneOfGreenGables'' series, one of the bigger questions is whether Anne will stop hating Gilbert and realize she's actually madly in love with him. After getting over her stubborn pride, a rejected marriage proposal, two years dating the wrong guy, and Gilbert almost dying of typhoid fever, she finally accepts his proposal and they live HappilyMarried ever after, with six children.
* L. Jagi Lamplighter's ''[[ProsperosDaughter Prospero Regained]]'' ends with a marriage.
* In PoulAnderson's Literature/TimePatrol story "Gibraltar Falls", at the end, Thomas and Feliz -- when he suggests a choice for her MeaningfulRename.
* Peter Whimsey and Harriet Vane get together at the end of Gaudy Night. As kissing is followed by marriage the last book (by Sayers) shows them happily married but with lots of issues to work out (including/triggered by the body in the basement of their honeymoon cottage).
* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Katniss and [[spoiler:Peeta.]]
* ''Literature/TheBelgariad'':
** Garion and his princess Ce'nedra spend a lot of time faffing around and [[BelligerentSexualTension bickering]] even during their ''engagement'' before they finally sort out their lives and admit that yes, actually, they ''are'' head over heels for each other and really if they'd been given the choice they would have chosen to marry each other anyway.
** When Durnik [[spoiler: becomes a disciple of Aldur]], the WillTheyOrWontThey between him and Polgara is finally settled in the positive.
* In ''Literature/MemorySorrowAndThorn'', Simon and [[RebelliousPrincess Miriamele]] finally conclude their [[WillTheyOrWontThey relationship dance]] [[LastMinuteHookup post-climax]], when Miriamele reveals that the real reason she's been so aloof to him is that she is afraid of losing him as a friend were she to have to take the throne of Erkynland and make a loveless [[ArrangedMarriage political marriage]]. No longer willing to let that separate them, they make love then and there, and only later does Simon reveal to her what he has just learned: [[MosesInTheBullrushes that he's the rightful king anyway]], so marrying her won't be a problem. HappilyEverAfter ensues.
* Tamora Pierce's Literature/TortallUniverse has something like this in the Literature/SongOfTheLioness series where we see Alanna get with numerous men, including the [[BetterAsFriends handsome prince]], and the [[OneLastFling tribal warrior]], before finally marrying the charming rogue who had loved her all along. In the later series we see them [[HappilyMarried growing]] [[BabiesEverAfter old together]], too.
* ''Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt'' has ended two of her novels, ''Literature/{{Overenskommelser}}'' and "De skandalösa", in this very fashion.
* An interesting case in Creator/SergeyLukyanenko's ''Literature/ALordFromPlanetEarth'' trilogy. Sergey first meets Terri in a park and saves her from a bunch of lowlifes. She gives him a ring and tells him she'll call on him later. A few years after that, she teleports him to her homeworld of Tar. He finds out that Terri is a princess who needs him to be her champion. Subverted in that Terri actually needs him to fight a ''very'' insistent suitor who has chased off all others, including the guy she actually wanted to marry. Against all odds, Sergey manages to defeat the BigBad of the first novel. However, at the end of the novel, Terri tells him that he can't stay on Tar and be with her, as the people would never accept a ruler from a "cursed world" (Earth is considered to be cursed by the [[{{Precursors}} Seeders]]). Sergey gets himself a ship and begins to travel the galaxy. After defeating the {{Big Bad}}s of the second novel, he once again ends up with Terri. This time, not only does she not reject him, but she chooses to go with him [[spoiler:to the future]]. They are happily married in the third novel.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/BabylonFive'' with Sheridan and Delenn. They walked through fire for their love, and after TheyDo the series keeps on going.
* ''[[LoisAndClark Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman]]'' does this with the title characters, and keeps going afterward.
* [[spoiler:Adama and Roslin]] in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}''. [[spoiler: Though she died in the finale, his actions afterwards (eg: the ring) would suggest that this still applies.]]
** The Agathons' marriage (Karl "Helo" Agathon and Sharon "Athena" Valeri) seems to be going OK too, despite him killing her! (It was at her request and, being a cylon, she got better).
* Tim and Dawn at the end of Series/TheOfficeUK. Their counterparts Jim and Pam on the [[Series/TheOfficeUS US version]] similarly get the conclusion to their ongoing WillTheyOrWontThey at the first episode of season 4 (though you can already tell that's where they're headed at the end of season 3).
** Michael and Holly in season 7, which eventually leads to him moving to Colorado with her and thus [[PutOnABus his departure from the series]].
** Erin and Pete in season 9 after [[spoiler: she dumps Andy for good]].
** As of the penultimate episode of the series, [[spoiler: Dwight and Angela when they get engaged]], after which their wedding takes place a year later during the GrandFinale.
** [[spoiler: Ryan and Kelly]] ''apparently'' in the GrandFinale when they run away together.
* John and Aeryn in ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' finally get together for good in the second half of season 4, and get married in ''The Peacekeeper Wars''.
** They were also together for much of Season 3, which went pretty well, except [[spoiler:John had been made into two separate, equal copies, and the one she was with performed a HeroicSacrifice. When she was reunited with the surviving John, she didn't want to look him in the eye at first.]]
** And [[BattleCouple they are]] '''[[BackToBackBadasses awesome!]]''' It is interesting to note, though, that their relationship is [[FireForgedFriends slowly and steadily built despite]] [[InHarmsWay having two opposing empires hunting their asses]], and Moya being a station interchange for DysfunctionJunction. With all the [[MindRape psychological problems]] and [[BreakTheCutie recurrent attempts by their foes to break them]], they really do [[EarnYourHappyEnding earn their happy ending]] and it ''works''.
* The point where Fran and Max get married in ''TheNanny''.
* Sonny and Chad finally got together partway through season 2 of ''SonnyWithAChance''. They've only been together a couple episodes but the show seems to have pulled it off successfully.
* ''Series/TheXFiles''' Mulder and Scully. They got together very ambiguously on the show from about season 7. In the 2008 movie, while they do have their issues, they appear to be happy together.
* In ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', there's JD and Elliot in the eighth season when they finally get together with a stable relationship after a majority of the series (aside from a break from the fourth season to end of the sixth season) went through their on-and-off-again relationship.
** Turk and Carla in the ''second episode of the series'', they eventually become HappilyMarried and are generally considered the most stable couple of the show.
** Dr. Cox and Jordon in season 2.
* Kenny and Max of ''Series/PicketFences'' get a rather complicated TheyDo. They finally get together in the third season, break up at the beginning of the fourth season (over Max [[MinorFlawMajorBreakup dying her hair]] of all things), spend the remainder of the season fighting, moping around and sharing meaningful gazes, and then ''finally'' stop being idiots and kiss and make up. Approximately ''five episodes later'' they spontaneously decide to get married and make it down the aisle before the series ends.
* Joel and Maggie on ''NorthernExposure'', considered by many to be the show's JumpTheShark moment.
* Odo and Kira's relationship in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', which avoided becoming a ShippingBedDeath.
* Tom and B'Elanna in ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''.
* Deliberately averted in ''Series/BurnNotice''. Fiona and Michael sleep together in a season 2 episode after she thought he had been killed in an explosion. In the commentary, one of the writers says that they were afraid that if the two got together, they'd play out this trope, but then realized (apparently from experience) that getting back together with an ex doesn't mean that any issues have been resolved, and often makes things more uncomfortable and complicated.
** Played straight in later seasons, especially when Jesse comes into picture, and it initially appears that he might be a rival to Michael for Fiona's affections. Michael's mother makes it clear to Jesse that there is never going to be a third side of a LoveTriangle with Michael and Fi.
* Charlie and Amita from ''NUMB3RS''. Hooked up season three or thereabouts and have stayed a stable couple since. [[spoiler: Charlie even asks Amita to marry him in the season five finale.]]
* Niles and Daphne on ''{{Frasier}}''. Except for the stupid "fat farm" arc, but that was [[RealLifeWritesThePlot the actress more than anything]].
* Hodgins and Angela in ''Series/{{Bones}}'', after the writers got over their brainless moment. They got married in a ''jail'', of all places.
** [[spoiler:Booth and Bones]]
* Sarah and Series/{{Chuck}} finally got together in the middle of the third season.
** Though their wedding came in the fourth season, with planning for the big day forming part of the season's arc.
* Carter and Allison of ''Series/{{Eureka}}'' admit they love each other and spend the night together in the middle of season 4.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' Amy and Rory in [[StealthPun The Big Bang]].
* {{Glee}}: Finn and Rachel, Kurt and Blaine, and after 5 whole seasons [[spoiler: Quinn and Puck]].
* Andy and April in the third season of ''ParksAndRecreation''. So much that [[spoiler: they get married just a few weeks after dating]].
* Josh and Donna in TheWestWing, even though it took them seven seasons.
* Danny and Lindsay on {{CSI NY}}
* Grissom and Sara, Series/{{CSI}}
* King Arthur crowns Guinevere his Queen at the end of series four of ''Series/{{Merlin}}''.
* In the Series/PowerRangersZeo episode "A Season to Remember", a look into the distant future shows Tommy and Kat happily married, with grandchildren. Fans, however, have argued with each other quite extensivly over whenever or not this episode was canon or, like another Christmas Special "Alpha's Magical Christmas", was a novelty one-shot.
* In ''Series/{{Castle}}'', Kate Beckett and Rick Castle. ''Finally!''
* In ''Series/{{Psych}}'', Juliet and Shawn
* In ''Series/{{Nikita}}'', Michael and Nikita finally get together at the end of season one, after a season of the former clinging to the misguided ideals of Division and trying to bring in the latter. Throughout season two, though their relationship is tested, they remain very much in love and are still together as of the end of the second season.
* In ''DowntonAbbey'', [[spoiler:Mary and Matthew, Anna and Bates, Sybil and Branson]].
* ''{{Ed}}'' and Carol ''finally'' get together at the end of the third season after working out their ''{{Unrequited Love Switcheroo}}''.
* Ross and Rachel's LastMinuteHookup in the GrandFinale of ''{{Friends}}''.
** And a lot earlier: Monica and Chandler who eventually become HappilyMarried.
** Pheobe and Mike at the end of season 9.
* ''Series/{{Wings}}'': Joe and Helen finally get together for good at the beginning of season 6.
* Chuck and Blair on ''GossipGirl''. Also Serena and Dan.
* Tony and Ziva on ''{{NCIS}}'', just in time for Cote de Pablo's failed contract negotiations.
* After two seasons of UST on ''Series/RaisingHope'', Jimmy and Sabrina finally resolve their tension and are now HappilyMarried.
* A complicated case with Peter and Olivia in ''Series/{{Fringe}}''. They finally start dating. Then Olivia gets switched with "Fauxlivia" from the AlternateUniverse. Peter and Fauxlivia live together for a bit before Peter figures out the truth. After Olivia comes back, there are a few episodes full of tension, especially since Peter struggles with his feelings for Fauxlivia. He gets over her, and once again hooks up with Olivia.

* In ''DeptHeavenApocrypha'', flagship couple Milanor and Nessiah stumbled into a relationship quite early on. Even though they're together and that's (probably) not going to change, between [[RapeAsDrama one thing]] and [[SanitySlippage another]], there's still been plenty of drama to go around.
** As this relationship actually happens to be a ''threesome'' with ''TheMillstone'' as its third member, there's no way the drama will ever be lacking. (Although she ''is'' [[CharacterDevelopment getting better]].)
* [[BetaCouple Artemis and Athena]] in ''ThaliasMusings''.

** According to WordOfGod, [[OfficialCouple Aang and Katara's]] kiss in the finale is deliberately framed like that of a bride and groom at their wedding, so yeah, them too.
** The SequelSeries, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' has the new Avatar learning Airbending from Tenzin, the youngest son of Aang and Katara. So yeah, they got hitched.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', OfficialCouple Korra and Mako go through a season of UnresolvedSexualTension and a LoveTriangle before finally getting together [[LastMinuteHookup in the last five minutes]] of Book One's finale.
** It's going to be to a greater extent then anyone initially thought, if [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/07/27/the-legend-of-korra-cast-and-creators-talk-book-two?page=2 what Bryan says about Season 2 is anything to go by.]]
---> '''Bryan Konietzko:''' Most movies and stuff, it’s all about leading up to the relationship happening. But very few things deal with 'Now we’re together,' [like with Korra and Mako]... I think those are kind of interesting things for us to deal with.
** As of the end of Season 2 [[spoiler: they broke up. Despite reaffirming their love for each other, their anger-fuelled split mid-season highlighted enough problems with their compatibility that at the end they decide, calmly and amicably, to break up for good]].
