* 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]].

Most ''definitely'' usually an AlwaysFemale trope, as well as TruthInTelevision.

Most ''definitely'' usually an AlwaysFemale trope, as well as TruthInTelevision. \n Though one can legitimately question whether a man who spends all his time at the office is a 'father' in any but the biological sense.

* Inverted, or something like that, in a two-episode arc in the second ''VideoGame/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 [[QuittingToGetMarried 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).
** Well, it ''is'' the [[DeliberateValuesDissonance 1920s]]...

* ''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.
