* ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheOldBlood'' Has an example, but rather than being given to an allied soldier, it's given to a german soldier.
* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' a human woman ponders to do this to her serving husband, leaving him for her asari mistress. And then begins to get second thoughts when the Asari starts backpedaling at the thought of them being in a serious long-term relationship.[[note]] Of course "long term" for an Asari is [[MayFlyDecemberRomance totally different from "long term" for a human.]][[/note]]

%% Surprisingly, the famous country song "Dear John" is about a man receiving a letter from his wife begging him to come home. (The 1980's one, not the TaylorSwift one.)

* ''[[ComicBook/MightyMorphinPowerRangersBoomStudios Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: Pink]]'' ends with a flash-forward to Kimberly writing the infamous letter during ''Zeo''. It's all but stated that there ''isn't'' a new guy, but she thinks it's kinder than the truth: that she's ready to move on from being a Ranger, and knows Tommy isn't.
