Happily Married: Theatre

  • Fiddler on the Roof:
    • Tevye and Golde. It was revealed in a lovely Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other duet.
    • Their daughters end up happily married to the men of their choices. All three unions face varying external conflicts that try to tear them apart, but the love between the couples never wavers.
  • John and Abigail Adams and Thomas and Martha Jefferson from 1776.
    • John and Abigail have three duets, with "Yours Yours Yours" expressing how much they love and miss each other. Truth in Television, too. Most of the content of those songs was taken from the Adams' actual letters to each other.
    • Tom misses his wife so much that he has a crippling case of Writer's Block when he's unable to visit her, so Adams has to ask her to come to Philadelphia—where they immediately fall into each other's arms (and then bed).
  • A few of the vignettes in I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change have these kind of couples, namely "Whatever Happened To Baby's Parents", "Sex and The Married Couple" and the untitled one featuring the song "Shouldn't I Be Less In Love With You?" It's indicated that the couple in "Wedding Vows" will be this since, despite some initial last minute panicking, they go through with the wedding because they sincerely love each other.
  • Macbeth: Lord and Lady Macbeth. Yes, they brought doom and damnation upon themselves together, but they loved and supported each other along the way (though Lady Macbeth could get a little mean in her "supporting"...).
  • Wintergreen and Mary in Of Thee I Sing, who get married in the first act finale and stay resolutely together through the sequel Let 'Em Eat Cake.
  • It can be taken that Dionysus and Ariadne had this sort of marriage in The Frogs, considering how Dionysus describes their time together: "And the years filled with joy/And my heart filled with pride/Just to know Ariadne was there at my side." And when he's in the Underworld, struggling to figure out who the best playwright to bring back to Earth with him is, Ariadne shows up to comfort him and help him find the answer.
