This can overlap with "Divorced but can't afford to get separate homes" which is becoming increasingly common in real life. I can't remember a fictional example at the moment.

I asked a while ago in the NRLEP discussion why this is No Real Life Examples, Please!, more specifically than the non-reason given, and haven't gotten a response. If I continue to get no response for another week or so, I might take it off.

From what I understand it's that it has to do with how the original trope (Amicably Divorced) had to do with how media represents divorce, but then later on it was changes to Amicable Exes and took out the marriage aspect. And also because it's really hard to tell if a Real Life couple is this and it might come of as disrespectful, because it's kind of a touchy issue.

Ok, well, it should say this Every trope is "how the media represents X"
