* Prominent banker Amos Kling and newspaper publisher WarrenHarding were enemies for several years. To Florence Kling, daughter of the banker, this made Harding irresistible. She pursued him until Warren agreed to marry her in 1891. Amos' reaction fits the trope: he disowned his daughter, and refused to speak to either her or his hated son-in-law for the next eight years.

* Irving Berlin's second wife, Ellin Mackay, was the daughter of Clarence Mackay, an extremely wealthy man (he was the head of a major telegraph company) and one of society's elite. Clarence made his disapproval of Irving and Ellin's courtship clear, a fact picked up by countless papers. When Ellin eloped with Irving, reporters asked Clarence how he felt about his daughter marrying a poor Jewish immigrant; he coldly responded "I don't ''have'' a daughter."

* Subverted in ''TheMusicMan'' when Harold Hill suggests that the Mayor order a fluglehorn on the grounds that his son would be a virtuoso. The Mayor almost falls for it before realizing (loudly) that he doesn't have a son.

* The MarvelComics character ComicBook/{{Cable}} once had an evil clone named Stryfe. This evil clone captured Cable's wife Aliya and raped her, leading to her having a son that, while genetically the same as if it had been Cable's, was ''not'' his son. Cable had a '''lot''' of issues with the boy; it got so bad that '''Professor X''' (who was halfway into his ManipulativeBastard turn then) called Cable on it when Cable referred to him as "Aliya's son" at one point.
* In ''[[ComicBook/XForce X-Statix]]'', Vivisector's father insists that the fact that Myles is his son is "a matter of opinion". Why? Simple - Vivisector is a gay mutant. Joining the X-Force was evidently the last straw, because by becoming a celebrity daddy couldn't pretend he didn't exist anymore.

* The early 20th-century musical ''The Jazz Singer'', (probably better known today as being the first talkie) featured this as the central plot: Jakie Rabinowitz wants to sing jazz in blackface and his rabbi father disapproves. No, not for the same reasons we would disapprove of this action [[ValuesDissonance today]]. Actually somewhat BasedOnATrueStory, making this one TruthInTelevision.

* In ''FiddlerOnTheRoof'', Tevye agonizes over his first two daughters willfully opposing tradition and marrying men they choose rather than ones chosen for them by the matchmaker. The first begged for permission to marry her childhood friend, which Tevye granted; the second married an itinerant tutor who had been teaching her, and they made clear that they would be marrying, permission or not, but would be grateful for his blessing. Tevye eventually came around on that one, too... but when his third daughter marries outside the faith, Tevye can't take it: "if I bend that far, I'll break!" Though it breaks his heart, [[TearJerker he disowns her]].
