* Opera example: in the fourth act of ''[[LaBoheme La bohème]]'', Rodolfo and the dying Mimi have a few minutes by themselves to sing a Theatre/FinalLoveDuet. Its reminiscences of the first meeting scene and abrupt ending are arguably even more tear-jerking than her actual death.

Its interruption by Mimi's convulsions is heartbreaking, though she still lives for another minute.

* ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' provides a [[TearJerker heartbreaking]] twist: Christine and Raoul sing a reprise of "All I Ask of You," but the focus of the scene is on the Phantom, now alone and devastated after [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy letting them go free]].

* ''TheWeddingSinger'' musical somehow manages to have ''three'' for the same couple. Robbie and Julia sing "If I Told You", "If I Told You (Reprise)" and the actual final duet, which is "Grow Old With You".

* In ''[[TheEmigrants Kristina]]'' the song "Here I Am Again" more or less fills this purpose for the lead characters. They spend the entire musical being happily married but towards the end of the second act Kristina barely survives a miscarriage and is informed she won't live through another pregnancy which in the mid 19th century means she and her husband have to stop having sex. The song in question takes place when Kristina convinces Karl Oskar that it's worth the risk of sleeping together because if God wants her to live she'll live and if He wants her to die He'll find a way whether she abstains from sex or not. The ending of the song is a reprise from a first act song in which Karl Oskar convinces Kristina to keep having sex when she wants to avoid bearing more children when they can barely feed the kids they've got. The lyrics are essentially about how their love and desire for one another is too strong to abstain from physically expressing it.
