* Billy and Emily in ''WesternAnimation/AnnabellesWish'' start off as childhood friends, with her helping to defend him from the local bullies who taunt him for losing his voice. At the end of the movie, after a long TimeSkip, they're shown to be married.

(Other studies question this on the basis that though few of the people they examined had major romantic relationships with childhood friends, many had crushes and romantic feelings that just didn't make it.)
