* Aral Vorkosigan tries this in LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Shards of Honor]]'' before his fiancee shows up and invalidates the need. His son Miles does it too, on occasion; evidently, it's hereditary. Though his mother (that's the fiancee we mentioned) does also say it's partially Miles's attempt to uphold tradition.

* Kaoru from ''Manga/ICantUnderstandWhatMyHusbandIsSaying'' used to spend most of her free time drinking and smoking to deal with her loneliness and a job that she hated. The key words here are "[[HappilyMarried used to]]".



** He just did it again. In Fear Itself he started screaming at Odin and the other gods, yelling that if they wanted a sacrifce he'd give them the "only thing he could give worth anything": his sobriety, by taking a huge swig of alcohol. Even though it was a {{Narm}} scene, it was a total tearjerker to see him so broken.

--> '''[[SwitchingPOV Samus's Point of view]]''': ''Mitsuzane had a very serious problem with alcohol. It all started two months after the Helheim Invasion, Mitsuzane had began to abuse alcohol when he was still unable to cope up over his depression. He had frequented in bars to drink, spending his family's money just to satisfy his greed for liquor to forget his troubles.
