* Prince Rupert is very much a CelibateHero in Creator/SimonRGreen's ''Literature/BlueMoonRising'', so much so that he even rides a {{Unicorn}} and is [[AManIsNotAVirgin rather defensive about it]]. The reason for this is that as a second son he isn't allowed to be sexually active in case of Dynastic complications. This is a minor [[TruthInTelevision Truth In Literature]], as many younger sons of nobility were packed off to the priesthood for much the same reason in the middle ages, and it had about the same level of effectiveness then as it does in the book.

* ''FanFic/TheVow'': during [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2 Lord Shen's]] thirty years of absence from Gongmen City, his former fiancé Lianne remains unmarried because she still loves him. Despite the fact that with her beauty and reputation she still has the attention of many lords even when she's nearing her fifties, she doesn't attempt to forget Shen and look for a husband until she remembers her duty to birth heirs while she still can. Ironically, the announcement of her engagement returns [[CrazyJealousGuy Shen]] to her life. [[spoiler:When she and Shen reawaken their love, they spend a night together (gaining a son from it) and soon become married.]]

* Averted in ''Literature/BookOfCorinthians'', Paul suggests that while being a CelibateHero helps one to focus their life to glorify the God, it is completely optional. If one cannot resist the temptation of sex, he recommends the believers to marry each other to get rid of the temptation instead.

* Sheldon from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. He seems to be asexual, but also sees love as a distraction from scientific work.

* EmilieAutumn has shunned romantic and sexual relationships after the situations which caused her to write the WomanScorned part of her ''Opheliac'' album (Bad situations in the past). Just her crumpets and her plague rats/muffins now....also falls into "Love is A distraction" excuse. She makes all her music on her own and sets up her own tours. Does not have the time, does not want the time.

* David Eddings's character Sir Bevier (from the {{Elenium}} and Tamuli novels) is aware that his good looks make him irresistible to women. Because he's the one most likely to abandon the steel for the cloth, he elects not to do anything about it.

* Raistlin Majere, antihero of the ''{{Dragonlance}}'' books. Actively manipulating the lovesick, annoying Crysania to his advantage, he resists the temptation to actually do anything with her because A) it's beneath a mage of his stature, B) he can't afford to be distracted from his "Overthrow the Gods for No Good Reason" project, and C) he had sex once before and was crap at it. And, though it's not explicitly stated, suspicions are that, were he to actually try anything as physically vigorous as sex with Crysania, he'd probably just wind up coughing blood all over her and collapsing into a heap, which, whatever way you look at it, isn't very romantic. There is possibly some inconsistency over whether Raistlin actually ever had sex or not. The Legends trilogy very strongly implies that he did, with one of Caramon's ex-girlfriends but ''The Soulforge'', which covers the time period it would have happened equally strongly implies he remained a virgin (there is a girl, again a lover of Caramon and there appears to be budding mutual affection but... well read it yourselves).

* In ''{{Lamb}}'', Joshua was told by an angel that he could never "know" a woman, but never explained exactly was meant by that. Josh and Biff take it in the Biblical sense, and so Joshua remains celibate his whole life (though Biff gets around enough for the both of them).

** Two members of Black Team were into each other, going so far as to make out in the showers (they were clothed, but it was pretty intense and it's possible they might have gone farther). As luck would have it, another member of their team happened to be an exception as well, apparent from his ratting them out in jealousy.
** Another Spartan, Maria, appears to have become married and taken on a family after being too badly injured to maintain active service. According to supplemental materials, Kat and Carter of ''VideoGame/HaloReach'''s Noble Team were previously in a relationship, which is hinted at in the game itself.
*** Kat and Carter were [=SPARTAN-IIIs=], which involved different modifications, especially since the process was perfected in the meantime (none of the [=SPARTAN-IIIs=] rejected their changes unlike their predecessors).
