My first choice would not be a couple at all, but Buffy Summers mom, Joyce Summers. She is the perfect mom, and she manages this as a single parent.
Joyce is utterly kind, compassionate, stable. She has a perfect amount of parenting anxiety; she is not overly relaxed or permissive, but she is not overly strict. Her constancy makes Buffy feel safe. I believe Joyce was the reason Buffy didn't unravel under the weight of her own responsibilities as a Slayer.
Buffy also had a wonderful father figure in her watcher, Giles. While he and her mom were never a couple, their combined efforts made a fantastic set of parents. Actually, the fact that they weren't romantically involved made them a more stable unit. No cheating, no breaking up.

Yup. Joyce Summers for mom, Rupert Giles for dad. Absolutely.
