* This happens to Tom Hanks's character in ''Film/CastAway''; he comes back after five years to find that his loved one started a family with someone else two or three years after he vanished. In a subversion, she's instantly ready to completely abandon her family and run away with him, but he rebukes her. This, in turn, was referenced in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', after Peter was stranded with Quagmire, Cleveland and Joe on a desert island, only to finally return home and find that Brian had taken over his former role in the home. (They explicitly only married for stability, and, to Brian's chagrin, never did the deed. This is to keep their [[UnresolvedSexualTension UST]], well, U.)
