parent-child relation with two children...

I have something like:
entity (id, live_version_id NULL, preview_version_id NULL) version (id, parent_entity_id)

where version.parent_entity_id must be a valid, and that entity must have the in either live/preview version_id. Is this a common set up? Does it make sense? Is there a way to express this requirement at the DB level (I'm specifically using MySQL, but in general I'd like to know)

Or, did I model my data in a bad way?
