Eh, as someone who really wants to find true love and get married, I will do everything in my power to make it work. I won't rush into a marriage either, so if it fails, you can rest assured I will not be on friendly terms with my ex, because it would deeply hurt me.

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.
