* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': Matt Murdock and Elektra Natchios. When they dated in college, Matt nearly ruined his future because of how much of a bad influence Elektra was on him. When she comes back into his life on Stick's orders to bring him into Stick's war against the Hand, his career and budding relationship with Karen Page are shattered as a direct result. And it's a two way street: Matt's ''positive'' influence has a ''negative'' effect on Elektra; she struggles with self-loathing because Matt's restraint makes her feel like a monster, her strive to be better because of him causes her to reject her teachings and puts her in the crosshairs of the Chaste (who, by virtue of her being the Black Sky, consider her too dangerous to leave as a WildCard), and ultimately [[spoiler:results in her death and resurrection by the Hand when she chooses to side with him against them.]]

** Their song "No Children" is also probably about this, though it could also be interpreted as a marriage that simply lost its passion.
-->''I hope that our few remaining friends give up on trying to save us.\\
I hope we come up with a fail-safe plot to piss off the dumb few that forgave us.\\
I hope the fences we mended fall down beneath their own weight.\\
And I hope we hold on past the last exit,\\
I hope it's already too late.\\
And I hope the junkyard a few blocks from here\\
Someday burns down.\\
And I hope that the rising black smoke carries me far away\\
And I never come back to this town again\\
In my life.\\
I hope I lie,\\
And tell everyone you were a good wife.\\
And I hope you die.\\
I hope we both die.''

You smashed a plate over my head\\
Then I set fire to our bed

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', the [[FusionDance fusion]] Malachite is a prime example of an abusive relationship. In the episode "Jailbreak", Lapis Lazuli fused with Jasper after the latter persuaded her to, but then dragged them both under the ocean, forcing Jasper to stay fused with her for months. This took a heavy psychological toll on them both. In the later episode "Alone at Sea", Lapis admits that she was abusive towards Jasper, even while in the fusion ("I ''liked'' taking everything out on you [Jasper]. I needed you, I-I hated you! It was bad!"). However, Jasper seems to be too attached to the relationship they had, ''begging'' Lapis to become Malachite with her again. Lapis declines, saying that "what we had wasn't healthy", and that she never wants to feel like she did with Jasper again.

* Norwegian novel ''Literature/NothingGrowsOfMoonshine'' is built around this trope, with a nameless teenage girl (the narrator), being physically and emotionally abused by the one man she gave her heart to in good faith. The trope is almost mentioned verbatim, and the girl ends up as a BrokenBird DefiledForever.

* ''Film/StarWars'': As sweet as it can be at times, Anakin and Padme's relationship wasn't healthy. When you have two people trained from a ''very'' young age to live a life of nothing but duty, and essentially forbid them normal, healthy relationships, there's no way it can end in anything but this trope.

It's especially bad for Anakin because this prohibition is one of the seeds that would lead him to TheDarkSide.
