* Ned Flanders from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' is a widower twice over: his first wife, Maude, was accidentally killed due to Homer's stupidity, and his second wife, Edna Krabappel, was KilledOffscreen after her voice actress passed away.

* From ''Series/TwentyFour'', we have Jack Bauer. Let's go down the list: Teri died, Nina was TheMole, Kate dumped him, Claudia died, Audrey was made to believe ''Jack'' had died, Diane broke up with him when he got back together with Audrey, who was then tortured to insanity, and Renee bites it less than an hour after sleeping with Jack. Geez, this guy can't catch a break.

** "Forest of the Dead" puts a twist on it - thanks to time travel, he sees River die before their relationship has even started from his perspective. The pre-Library River is now a recurring character, meaning they both know a lot about the other's future that they can't divulge.

** Snake himself could potentially becomes the Cartwright Curse himself, he's essentially a Walking FOXDIE, who causes death on randomised targets.

** Carter goes above and beyond the call of duty for this trope, as the men interested in her rarely die alone. Jonas (not Jonas Quinn), who lead one of the teams, murdered a teammate, set himself up as a god, then died with his [[TheDragon Dragon]] when [=SG-1=] incited a rebellion. Lantash, a Tok'Ra, took two hosts with him, the first when Carter had to ShootTheDog, the second and Lantash himself in a HeroicSacrifice. And Martouf, Lantash's first host who had been involved with the Tok'Ra who snaked Carter and transferred some of that affection to Carter, turned out to be a ManchurianAgent and was killed trying to assassinate the president in the abovementioned ShootTheDog incident. Ambassador Joe Faxon let himself get captured to allow her to escape the Aschen, but then probably died with them if they dialed the black hole planet. Nerim was just one death in the [[DroppedABridgeOnHim genocide of the Tollan]]. And Fifth not only let [[FanNickname RepliCarter]] loose on the galaxy, but was her first kill.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': In "Breaker of Chains", Margaery seems perturbed that her husbands have a habit of dying gruesomely, even though it's clear she didn't love them. Then again, considering the amount of political maneuvering and payoffs she and her family have to go through to get these marriages, she's probably frustrated at the extra amount of work she has to keep putting in.

* Lampshaded in the first few seasons of ''NorthernExposure'': everyone who ever got lucky with Maggie had eventually died in some freakish way (ate tainted potato salad, took a wrong turn into a missile range, fell asleep on a glacier and froze, was hit by a falling satellite shortly after learning he didn't have cancer).

* This seems to happen in ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'' too except if you pass the game on Dead on Arrival, then Mona lives. Sadly non-canon in ''MaxPayne3''.

Added DiffLines:

* Most if not all of the cast of '' Series/TheWalkingDead '' have lost someone as this is a zombie show with plentiful gore and violence. Tara Chambler has lost two of her girlfriends (on in Season 4 and another as recently as season 7). Rick lost his wife, and later love interest Jessie before hooking up with Michonne. Also played with when it comes to Maggie and Carol, every season Carol gets close to a child, only for them to die a season later. Maggie, since season 3 has also lost each member of her family, with each passing season.

* To a lesser extent, this happens to Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) in the ''Film/LethalWeapon'' saga. His wife died in a car crash (but it turns out really she was murdered) before the first film, and his love interest in ''Film/LethalWeapon2'' slept with the fishes. Even Lorna Cole (Rene Russo) in ''Film/LethalWeapon3'' almost bought the farm, but ultimately subverted the curse.
