I'm looking for romance between 'sad' characters.

Something like
Diamond Dust (Kang Hyung-Gyu)
The Other Side of the Mirror
...to a lesser extent maybe even Oyasumi Punpun.

Things I'm looking for:
Poverty
Mental/psychological problems
Illness
Cynicism/pessimism
Family situations/Dysfunctional families
Hopelessness
Depression
Trauma/tragedy

..and all that bad stuff. They don't need to meet all. One is good.
Both partners of the relationship must have/had some kind of problem.
But it doesn't mean it has to end in tragedy.

Edit: I put linked the wrong Diamond Dust. Happens every single time. It's fixed now and hopefully everyone got what I meant. no Also, thank you for all the suggestions so far.

Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan
Annarasumanara

Just realized that you've already read Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan. I don't know, most of the story has one "sad" character, but rarely both. If you're ok with the pair being side character, Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria (Novel) kinda fit.

Maybe Grisaia no Kajitsu not sure though (I think they all have some kind of mental trauma). According to MU no chapters out but Quantum scans did first chapter of it. Its based on an VN which is fully fantranslated...

Most of these suggestions I feel fit what you're looking for, others ... to an extent and may be stretching it a bit.
Hana no Namae Best fitting suggestion
Hana wa Knife o Mi ni Matou
H2O
Meteor Methuselah
Aoi Kiseki
Basilisk
Koyoi Oto Furu Sora no Shita
A House in Venice
Diamond Life
Melody Drifting in the Rain
Nemurihime - Yume Miru You ni Koi Shiteru
Koi Tomurai
Tobenai Tori
S no Kaikoroku
Visukiisu no Akai Ningyou
System of Romance
Carpe Diem
Escape from High-School GirlsThis one really is a stretch, but it's a oneshot.

Kurokami no Helga / Bride (Aivan)(Saw these were in your complete list after posting this,but I just couldn't take them out from this edit so I made this note, heh)

Some don't have both partners that have/had the tragic things happening, but I feel has that same vibe you are looking for. I hope these help.

I second SaiKano. It's very very depressing. I'd like to recommend 3gatsu no Lion too.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It's about a young genius shogi player who's trying to overcome his tragic past, along with the physical and mental pressure from his work. He's also coping with others' expectations of him being a young genius and with the rather hostile atmosphere of his foster family.

And also Video Girl Ai
