* 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.
