* Inverted, or something like that, in a two-episode arc in the second ''SakuraWars'' OAV. The first episode centers around the other girls believing that Sakura is going to get married, which of course unquestionably means that she will quit her job. The second episode is Sakura, who is actually just attending a relative's wedding, moping over how she can never get married and have a family herself because she doesn't want to quit her job. The girls remark a few times on how glad they are that this is a "new era for women" where they can choose to have a career or a family (but not both).

* ''KimiWaPetto'' is a major deconstruction of this trope, with the main character eventually ending up with someone who tells her it's ''her'' decision whether she wants to keep her career or not (and means it!). She eventually ends up becoming a respected freelance journalist who travels around with her husband the internationally acclaimed dancer.

* This is a major theme in the ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' series post-''Anime/StrikerS'', as the lead ladies grow out of their Magical ''Girl'' status and become Magical ''Women'', although for the most part this trope is defied, as Nanoha herself and most of her friends manage to combine family life with successful careers. One major example, however, comes up right in the [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha first season]] and forms a huge part of Fate Testarossa's backstory: her single mother Presea focused so much on her career that [[spoiler:she wasn't there to save her ''first'' daughter Alicia when she died]], driving Presea borderline insane with grief and eventually leading to her excessively cruel treatment of Fate, [[spoiler:Presea's cloned ReplacementGoldfish of Alicia]].

* Subverted in ''Radio/NewDynamicEnglish'', where Max decides to ''change his job'' from a travelling businessman to a radio worker because he missed his family. This was already foreshadowed in the software version where it's stated that he'd always miss his family even though he had been travelling.

\n\n* ''Series/MadMen'':
** It's implied that Betty's less-sympathetic traits stem from high intelligence - she has an anthropology degree from Bryn Mawr - socially constrained from having a career outside the home.
** Joan is expected to leave her office manager job and start pumping out babies when Greg makes chief resident. She actually does resign even when he's passed over. Since Greg is an awful husband even by the standards of this show, the arrangement doesn't last.

* In ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'', Tsubomi's parents were both highly respected botanists who were majors in their field. However, it wasn't until Tsubomi had a major emotional breakdown that they realized by choosing their careers, they were hurting their family. So, they quit their jobs, moved to Kibogahana and opened up a flower shop. They're still both working, just that now they got more time with Tsubomi.
